Show ME the $$$

Ok, so I hear now that advertisers will pay for product placements in blogs (stolen from Media Bistro of course).

So...I wonder which company will want to be mentioned here?
And how much they'll pay?

Perhaps KY will have to start accessorizing http://www.handsnpaws.com/product/BBOUTCN261

Ferragamo on line 2!

Shades of the Bulgari Affair and Marvel's recent decision to accept $ for product placement...

I love promoting products, books, movies, whatever, and I do it for free. Today I'm pushing The Devil Wears Prada because I can't wait to see it.

Last year I linked to the lime Coke commercial online: "Put the lime in the coke, you nut!" I couldn't find it this year so I literally begged the company to allow me to download my copy onto YouTube so I could play it on my blog again. Y'think they'd love the free pr, but I was turned down.

Tanqueray, of course!

You HAVE to check out the "Tams" (no kidding!)

Possibly they'd pay in merchandise. heh.

I have no connection to the above web site, no agenda, hell I don't even have a dog.

I read that in the newsfeed and immediately wondered if I could get Nikon to pay me for the mention of their camera on my blog and my dh's photo blog. I could pitch Dr. Pepper and Dove's dark chocolates (my writing staples), Dell, Ford, and Mobil Gas (currently my highest monthly expenditure.)

Wonder if this would finance my writing lifestyle (the one to which I'd like to become accustomed).

A Google search for Literary Agent places Miss Snark the Literary Agent on page 2 (results 11 - 20 of about 17,500,000 for literary agent.) An honorable showing to say the least.

Further examination of Miss Snarks blog shows it enjoys a Google Page Rank of 6 out of 10, ranking as high as websites like the New York Times, in popularity (see examples below).

Ebay.com 9/10
Walmart 8/10
New York Times 6/10
MissSnark.com 6/10
Prada.com 4/10
EdRants.com (Bat Segundo) 4/10

A google search using the keywords included in Miss Snark's source code produces the following results.

Agent, Author, Editor, Publisher - Do not place Miss Snark within the first 5 - 10 pages of results, i.e. not useful in acquiring a sponsor.

Literary Agent - page 2, result #4 (Very Nicely Placed, could be useful spot to advertise for the likes of Amazon.com)

Manuscript, Novel, Book, Query - Do not place Miss Snark within the first 5 - 10 pages of results, i.e. not useful in acquiring a sponsor.

Crapometer - Enjoys the #2 spot (http://crapometer.com is #1), it is highly unlikely that these words would produce any likely result for advertisers, unless they too instituted a crapometer for their products. i.e. McDonald's might claim that their chicken fingers rank a mere 4 on a scale of 1 to 10 on the McCrapometer. Another possible advertsiser: Port-a-Potty.

Killer Yapp - killeryapp.wordpress.com enjoys top spot on page one here. Miss Snark is #5 on page one, however is mentioned in result four. Perhaps a home for wayward poodles?

Submission - While this word produces a plethora of results for electronic submissions of all types, it is not particularly useful to Miss Snark's website ranking, thereby negating any possible source of advertising income, unless Miss Snark goes into the Dominatrix Business.

Partial - Most useful for Dentists, Doctors and Mathematicians. Sorry Miss Snark.

Synopsis - Definitely not a helper word.

Plot - Nope.

Character, Motivation, Exposition - Nah.

What does all this mean? Miss Snark is indeed popular, VERY popular, and it appears to be more by word of mouth than by use
of internet tricks! This is the best kind of internet popular to be, and most useful in attracting advertisers. WHY?
Because you have a legitimate, ever-expanding fan base, rather than traffic acquired by putting the right word in the right place on your webpage(difficult to do on a blog). Congratulations Miss Snark, you are POPULAR, and this bud's (Gin's) for you!

NOTE: Page Ranks are a useful tool in ranking the popularity of a webpage, and should be treated with the same respect as any other tool. In other words "Don't fix it if it ain't broke!" If you are luck enough to generate enough traffic and enjoy a high page rank, you must be doing something right!
