Need Traffic? Year-End Advertising Special

With the year coming to an end I wanted to share the annual blog stats with you, and a last-chance opportunity to take advantage of 2012 advertising rates before the New Year rate increase.

In 2012 ClickNewz saw over a million unique visitors, with more than 10 million page views.

As the year closes, ClickNewz is currently seeing an average of over 16,000 page views per day...

All of the traffic is purely organic and highly targeted. Top traffic sources are major search engines, social media channels, guest blogging and personal referrals.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Social Media Reach

These numbers are current as of December 28, 2012. I post manually and individually to each of these social networks, and interact personally on all of them.


In addition to the social media reach, there are more than 10k subscribers between RSS and Email at any given time, with a high per-item click through rate.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Single Post Stats

While overall stats are fun and interesting, I pay special attention to the stats of a single page or post over time. Achieving a top 10 ranking and funneling highly targeted traffic into specific pages is my specialty.

For example, my post about starting a free online business was written more than 4 years ago (August 2008). In 2010 it saw 31,883 visits due to top rankings in Google for multiple long tail keyword phrases. In 2011 it saw 71,594 visits. Yes, more than double the year before. In 2012 that same post saw 104,264 visitors.

Again, this is a single blog post that was published almost 4 1/2 years ago, and the traffic just continues to increase every year!

An optimized post here at ClickNewz using a very specific keyword phrase, with a strong call to action in the post, can be quite valuable. πŸ˜‰

As another example my post on how to make money online - which was published in April 2010 (almost three years ago) - saw 76,238 visits in 2012.

Advertising Options

For a limited time you can still take advantage of the 2012 advertising rates. You can get site-wide exposure as a ClickNewz Sponsor for only $500/month. Note: Space is limited. I only accept TWO sponsors at any given time.

You can secure a sponsorship for the entire year for only $3600 (40% off the monthly ad rate). See the two ClickNewz Sponsor spots in the right sidebar above and below the "Hot Topics" section. You could see YOUR ad there!

Your advertisement graphic needs to be 300 pixels wide by 250 pixels high. Send a link to your graphic, the destination URL, and your preferred Alt Text for the image with your advertising request.

Please use the contact form to submit your ad details for consideration. Sponsors are hand selected, so I will get back with you personally on your request.

Option #2: Featured Editorial / Review

I will write a quality blog post about your product, book or website for $250. This includes a keyword-optimized post, minimum 500 words, targeted exposure to my active readership, and a permanent inbound link with anchor text of your choice.

This also includes direct exposure to my mailing lists and social media channels.

As I mentioned earlier, one well-optimized blog post can continue to serve you for months – and even years. Here is just one example of a sponsored post, to give you an idea what you can expect: Virtual Spokesperson.

Not all requests will be accepted. Again it must be relevant and of interest to my readership. I reserve the right to accept or deny post sponsorships at my discretion.

(If you prefer to write the post yourself, the rate is only $150.)

Please use the contact form to submit your request for consideration.

Include your URL, preferred anchor text, and the angle/topic you would like covered. Please include as much detail as possible. If your Featured Editorial ad request is approved, I will send a reply with payment instructions.

If you are interested in text links only, please contact me through the form for current rates & options. And if you have specific advertising needs or interesting ideas… I’m all ears. Get in touch and let's talk! πŸ˜‰
