The top of the main page always showed an offer to rent the banner space. Happily that has happened. Very timely as the ads that were text ads on the sidebar expired. The blog isn’t one meant to be a revenue source. I could have stayed longer with PokerWorks. Linda was great but I was a burnout there. They let me write about anything I wished but there were self imposed constraints that were leaving me with the feeling I couldn’t any longer contribute to the site’s success.
This new ad covers the modest cost of the site and even leaves a very modest surplus. I was happy to see the offer — what with the change in the online poker landscape.
I’ve never understood this SEO business. There are a lot of sites that purport to maintain the stats for the various data they collect. Those I reviewed and those my site collect have never really agreed. That’s always left me confused about the whole SEO thing.
