My $100 Stumble Upon Ads Campaign

Posted on May 29, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

A humble welcome to my new Stumble Upon viewers!

You see, today I purchased 2000 “Stumbles” through Stumble Upon Ads at a cost of .05 each for a total of $100.

I’m of course pointing this traffic to this emonetized.com website and it’s another case study in-which I will share with you the results. I’m specifically targeting this particular campaign to those in the United States that are males between the ages of 18 to 45. Maybe I’ll run a female only Stumble Upon Ads campaign next to see which results in the higher new RSS Feed subscribers. 😉

Since this website is not exactly “monetized” at this point, the only way I can judge the success of this Stumble Upon ads campaign is by the number of new feed subscribers this blog gets over the next couple of days. Of course the RSS subscribers count could increase from other sources but I should still get a rough idea of how well the campaign goes.

So my fellow Stumblers, please look over what this new blog already has to offer and if you like what you see, please subscribe to the feed.

    Isn’t purchasing traffic against AdSense’s terms of service? I see you don’t have AdSense here, but this piece of information may be worthwhile if you plan on espousing the benefits of traffic purchasing *and* AdSense on the same site.

    Hi Flexo. Thanks for dropping by the blog. I’ve been a big fan of your Consumerism Commentary blog.

    I’m not sure where you read that purchasing traffic to a website with Adsense on it is against their terms but that’s not true. If that was the case, then you could not use Google Adwords to send traffic to a website with Google Adsense on it which is of course ok to do. That would also role out buying text link advertising etc. etc.

    The main reason I have very little advertising on this website is because I want to build up a readership first. Readers first, make money second. 😉

    Your suggestion of running a Stumble Upon Campaign to a page with Adsense it a good one. This could work well as long is it is not a “made-for-Adsense” style page. If it was then it probably would not get approved by Stumble Upon anyway.

    I guess I have another case study to do!
