Saying Goodbye to AuctionAds!
It is the busiest time of the year for retail sales, and traffic on the sites I run AuctionAds on are all up, but guess what? AuctionAds has been performing like crap ever since ShoeMoney sold it. I don’t know if it is because Media Whiz has been spending all their time on their other advertising product ShoppingAds. Maybe it is because Google gave them a big kick in the balls when they chopped PageRank on people selling text links. Who knows. All I know is that AuctionAds have been sucking for a while now. Click through rates have gone down the tubes, sales suck, and worse, any kind of relevant ads are impossible to get. I am going to take a close look at November’s numbers and decide if they should have any more of the real estate on my websites. Looking at it quickly today, I highly doubt that I will keep them on any sites, except maybe as alternate ads. Sad to see AuctionAds rise and fall so quickly. Perhaps I will take another look at them in the New Year and see if things have improved.
