Months ago, I signed up with LinkShowOff and installed this widget:
I then priced the link for $1 each and after more than 30-days, no one bothered to buy a link. My blog is already PR 2 and receiving lots of unique visitors daily through Adgitize and Entrecard but then again, no one seems to be interested. After placing it on my top left side bar, prioritizing an excellent advertising space in my blog, still... I don't think anyone bothered to click.
I, myself, have my own reasons for not purchasing a link on other blogger's LinkShowOff. For one, I'd rather advertise with Adgitize than buy a single link which has a tag, "rel=nofollow". Plus, 125X125 ad are more prone to "clicks" compared to anchor texts.
The links shown in the LinkShowOff widget are made nofollow as per Google's guidelines.
Second, a fee of $3 per transaction is way too much. ODESK just charged $1 per withdrawal so why can't they? Okay, I have nothing against LSO, but for now, let me just wave goodbye.
