- PublisherSpot Launched!
- Blog Updates
Remember PublisherSpot, formerely codenamed ProjectAA? I had first announced it 6-months ago on April 1st. Half a year later, it’s finally finished.
Well… kinda. The site is 100% completed in terms of programming and design. All that is needed now is the actual content. The hardest part you say? Perhaps, but perhaps not so much in this case. While I plan on providing very professional and informational reviews on the site, I believe that the structure and programming of the site will still remain the hardest part in the development of the site.
The site is fully functioning, except for an issue with the administration area which is not functioning for me. I’ll have my developer fix it tomorrow when I catch him online; it was fully working when we tested it on his server, something must have just not got changed correctly when it was moved to my server. Should be an easy 2-minute fix.
What is PublisherSpot?
PublisherSpot.com will cater to internet web publishers by providing informative reviews and summaries of the various internet ad network companies.
Aside from presenting detailed reviews and specific information such as what ad network media packages contain and what forms of payment they accept, PublisherSpot.com will allow visitors to search dynamically for network companies via an in-house search engine. Some examples of search features will include searching for ad networks that serve pop-ups, ad networks with a rating of 90% or better, or searching for contextual ad networks.
PublisherSpot.com is 100% completely hand-coded from scratch and is unique. Great care was taken in the development process to ensure a long-lasting well oiled robust engine.
The HTML is W3C valid. The backend engine was written in Perl, with custom modules written for easy future modification. A custom templating and mod_rewrite/SEO system was implemented and all HTML, CSS, and programming files are well documented and commented.
Pushing the envelope even more, PublisherSpot.com was tested in 23 different browsers and is compliant with 800×600 resolutions.
I honestly believe PublisherSpot is going to be one of the most useful websites for anyone who seeks information on advertising agencies.
I will start with the biggest and most popular networks first, such as Google AdSense, ValueClickMedia, Casale Media, etc. and eventually move on to include more specialized sites such as PartyPoker’s Affiliate system.
I’ll have to start by writing most of the reviews myself, however I’d be more than grateful if anyone else would help contribute reviews.
I have no intention on adding a single ad to the site, not now or in the future. I plan on monetizing it by simply having my referrer/affiliate-id in the links to the actual sites. To me the idea was a no-brainer: why work hard building sites and
monetizing them when you can simply profit from others who will do it for you? Sign up just one webmaster who is big or goes on to do very well, and you’re set.
That being said, I honestly believe this to be a win-win situation. I honestly believe PublisherSpot will be an immensely valuable website to webmasters, and in return it should hopefully help profit me.
