With, over 2,000,000 Web site operators, bloggers and individual Web surfers today voluntarily use Snap Shots on their sites and browsers. Snap Shots is used about 15 million times daily and has been translated into 43 languages by volunteers.
In conjunction with the Snap Ad Network, a new program that allows advertisers to deliver content with associated context-based ads to millions of Snap ShotsTM users, Snap.com today announced Snap Shares, a new way for Web site operators and bloggers to make money using Snap Shots, the most popular Web site enhancement in the world.
Well what is SnapShot?
Follow my blog or subscribe to my RSS feeds or to my email list and I will go through a full review of the service, here is a brief preview as an example of what it is:
When mousing over a hyper link, a small SnapShot window reveals content from the linked site formatted according to the content type, such as a video player from a YouTube link, a brief summary from a Wikipedia link, etc.
I will integrate in my site soon.
The new service, Snap Share, was to be announced on Thursday at BlogWorld expo, but they decided to share it with us today at ad:tech New York.
A new money making stream, Snap Shots with Snap Share allows bloggers & Web site owners to increase their revenue with the context based ads at the bottom of each Snap Shot. This is, I think, the best ad placement since it;s in your content and to the side or bottom of it.
Snap.com said: Snap Shares is actually three ways of sharing ad inventory. Sites can:
1. Have Google serve ads via their Adsense account.
2. Display their own text or graphic ads.
3. Donate their shares of impressions to a Charity of their choice. (I like this option)
The idea behind Snap Shares is to allow sites to…
* Generate new advertising inventory on their site.
* Meet their minimums for pay-out from their Ad Network sooner or increase their monthly checks.
* Improve the user experience of their sites with richer, more interactive content.
* All without having to shift the ads-to-content ratio of their pages.
Joining the SnapShares program is easy.
1- Site/blog operators register at Snap.com and adjust their Snap Shots to meet their site’s look and feel, such as logos, language, color, size, etc.
2- Each site provides account numbers from their existing advertising providers. If they do not have an Ad Provider, the registration form includes links to participating providers.
3- According to their individual Ad Provider agreement, revenue generated from using SnapShares will be issued directly from their Ad Provider. And I am looking into that, I think it’s a better way to choose who you want to be in your site.
