  1. Interesting information, but I’d be more curious to see which ads are direct sell vs. network driven and what’s flat-fee vs. cpc. Knowing the general ad rates at shoemoney for direct sell, I’m surprised to see other top bloggers who stick with the network approach.

  2. nearly 30% on compared to 15% for you, plus the shoemoney store isn’t a paid ad, it’s a banner to yourself… interesting study, great linkbait. πŸ™‚

  3. Jeremy, pretty please… learn to distinguish between ‘they’re’, ‘their’ and ‘there’. Thanks.

  4. The URL takes a while to load. All the shoemoney traffic must be bogging the server down. πŸ˜›

  5. sorry for unrelated question
    -Jeremy, can u please suggest me some premium domain name forums for domain trade. would really appreciate sincere answer.

  7. They even missed the large rectange on John Chow, just because that post happened to have a wide pic at the beginning.

  8. Interesting. I must admit, I don’t notice many ads when I visit those blogs, with the exception of John Chow’s. I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

  9. Interesting, I would have 0% adds according this study but only cause my header adds currently empty but even with it I doubt Id break the teens.

  10. It simply strikes me as odd that an established blogger doesn’t seem to know the difference between the three.

  11. I think it’s crazy how many ads some of these blogs have. After actually looking at that % and such, it’s amazing to me.

    The funny thing is, I notice them but I dont really pay a ton of attention to any of the ads.

  12. Every one wants to convert. That’s what I like about shoe: he hasn’t filled the blog with ads

  13. You must have a sad life.
    Go and find some professional help to fight the urge to correct other people’s grammar.

  14. Yup John Chow, keeps it real.. fills the site up with ads, thats where he gets his 17K revenue.

  15. I’m surprised that most of the ads are placed where they are. I can’t argue that the placement is wrong, it’s just different from where I would place the ads. There’s something to learn from that study…

  16. Shoe,

    Wtf with this guy gimme a break with his spelling lesson.
    Sounds like a guy trying to justify hes now an American..

    Dude this is a Blog..Get it.. Speed post and move on, Not the NewYork>>

    Shoe, I think hes one of them from there but might be from thair too who knows! know what I mean?

    Poor Guy must have, Just past the USC exam.. Cuddos πŸ˜€

  17. I think it makes good sense to me. The ad placement theory actually states that ads do better on the left of a page as users read from left to right. The optic nerve tends to focus on the starting word of a sentence.. Meaning the eyes power is slightly higher for place marking on pgs.. For the record I disagree with this theory as its all about consumer behavior & conditioning and we got users trained hard to click on the right… How very Carl Sagen of

  18. Very interesting comparision, I am wondering how is it compared with the blog earnings… more ads = more money?

  19. See, I think that is low because I would count favorite posts and marketplace listings as ads too, maybe not paid ads but they are ads designed to drive traffic either deeper into your own blog or to your friends/favorite resources.

  20. As long as you have content that readers are looking for, the number of ads wont appear as spam. Readers would typically lose their patience when the quality of the content drops and the only focus is ads.

  21. What matters more, the percentage of Ads, their position or the earnings. I could be good to have just one that makes for ten.

  22. […] don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to get your ad on sites like JohnChow or ShoeMoney to take advantage of private advertising. There are a lot of popular sites on the Internet that […]
