Selling private ad spots is a good way to increase your blog’s income. I’ve recently added a peel away ad spot on my blog. I sold the spot right away. The great thing about a peel ad is that it’s very eye catching. If you don’t already have a peel away ad spot on your blog, i recommend you install it to increase your private ad revenue. Increasing your ad revenue means that you’ll be making more money with you blog.
I found a great plugin for peel away ads. The plugin adds a flash Page Peel Ad to your WP powered blog. It preloads the big image so you won’t get a delay before displaying the image. The page peel script is free and it’s easy to install.
Since most of you guys are noobs, so i’ll walk you through the process. You’ll be sporting your new peel away ads in no time.
1. First download the plugin here.
2. Unzip the folder and make sure you take it out of it’s sub folder. When i first started with the plugins, i had trouble with this. The unzipped folder will have another folder inside it. Take all the files out of that folder. The inside folder is the one you’ll want to FTP to your server.
4. You will need two images. Small and Big. The file names are “pageear_b.jpg” and “pageear_s.jgp”. The big file is 500×500 pixels. The small file is 100×100 pixels. You can easily edit the images files with image programs like photoshop. Replace these two images in the pageear folder.
5. Login to wordpress admin and click on plugins. Activate the “pageear” plugin. Click on “pageear-config” Add the desired URL and you’re done.
I tried out three different free plugins for the peel away ads. This was the only one that worked in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Johnchow sells his version. Don’t be a fool and buy these type of plugins. You can always find a free version somewhere on the net. Don’t be a sucker!
Leave me a comment if you need help with the install. Noob out!
