Internal ads: I need to look into ad or banner system plugins for Wordpress. I don’t need it right now but will need. I am not talking about Adsense or outside ads, but I need to drive some traffic to my own content. The big example would be the Blog Directory. I need to let people know it is there.
Graphical banner ads are a pain. Mainly because I’m terrible at making graphics. The other thing is they can screw up the view on mobile. The good thing is you set up the campaigns and forget it.
Text ads? Maybe. Worth trying.
Placement? I hate ads between paragraphs in articles but it is effective.
I need to think this through and see what free plugins are available.
More directory listings: I need to add more. I could easily add the famous blogs, but that really isn’t the focus of the blog directory, which is hopefully for good new or unfound blogs - the underappreciated. Will work on this.
