The Cost of Free ContentPosted: April 23, 2012
I have one of those “ad free blog” things over here. Then again, in no universe to I get anywhere near actual traffic that I’d actually be able to sell ads against, so it’s a bit of just a thing that’s there instead of an ad.
However, there are lots of really smart people who hang around the Internet who rely on ads, and thanks to this post over on Panjiba, you get a sense of the numbers. Brilliant piece and great transparency to explain what is going on.
Give it a read, and maybe consider clicking an ad or two over there if it interests you.
