Use an advertising network or sell ad space yourself?

It’s easy, lazy and super convenient to join an advertising network such as Google AdSense or Media.net or something similar. You can create an account in minutes, get ads immediately and see earnings within a week or so. It’s boring and anyone can do it. But if your site is big enough from the get-go it may be easy money and work fine for your purposes.

The real fun starts when you sell your own ad spaces. That leaves you in control and with AdRotate and AdRotate Pro you can easily manage which advert goes where and for how long. You make the rules and, within reason, you decide what happens. And that’s not a bad thing at all.

Show Review for WooCommerce

Another handy little plugin for WooCommerce. This time to show a random review on any page. If you want to convince your customers of your awesome products or services you can do so with reviews. Collecting reviews on products is fine. Perhaps you have a widget to show them in a sidebar… But now you can also show them on any page or post.

Show Review adds a Shortcode to WordPress which you can use in posts, pages and text widgets and a random review from your WooCommerce products rolls out. A different one on every page load. Super simple, no setup required other than adding the Shortcode where you want a review to show.

Check out the Show Review for WooCommerce plugin here:

Why switching to Matomo for website analytics is a good thing

For years I have wondered why the world so blindly got hooked up with Google services and why almost nobody seems to question if that’s a good thing. Nobody I know has any doubts. Reviews everywhere on the internet tell people Google is the best, or at least it’s very good. And if you search for “best way to sync your android phone” or “alternative for iCloud calendars” or something similar, everyone seems to blindly recommend the Google sync stuff – Which also quietly has you use their services afterwards.

Why? It makes no sense… Oh wait, it does. The Google services as a whole work quite well and they work on pretty much every platform and system. Sure, but so do many others. So why choose, and trust, Google?

Like so many others, I recently started to resent companies like Google and Facebook who seemingly just do whatever they want. Dancing around laws and regulations like they don’t exist or matter and the endless lying to their users. I wrote a bit about that in a previous blog post.

Why Diversifying with Contextual Ads Makes a Lot of Sense in 2019

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. We’ve all heard it, we all understand it, but how many of us actually put it into practice? When it comes to your website’s ad inventory, diversifying your sources of revenue is critical for ensuring that you make the most of every impression.

Tap into multiple, competitive demand sources

Every ad partner brings their own set of advertiser demand. A lot of this demand overlaps across multiple ad partners, but no one ad partner has access to all the demand sources out there. Very few ad partners bring exclusive demand to the party, but when you find one that does, it’s worth adding such a partner to your mix.

The real estate on your website is a valuable commodity that advertisers want to get on. The higher the number of advertisers competing for that ad space, the greater the potential revenue from that impression. Therefore, working with multiple ad partners that bring in all of the demand you can possibly capture just makes good fiscal sense for publishers who want to maximize their earnings.
