Some people love them, some people hate them. Either way it seems PayPerPost are hear to stay.
They have just released a new feature to try and get more sign-ups that simultaneously gives publishers some exposure while giving out more money to them (they must be doing really well or have some confident venture capital behind them).
The new feature, “Review My Post”. You’ll notice the links at the bottom of my posts for the time being. Basically you click the link, join PayPerPost and get a special opportunity just for you in which you have to review my post. I get free exposure as you promote my blog, you get $7.50 and PayPerPost get another (hopefully) loyal postie. The odd bit is I also get $7.50… So it’s basically PayPerPost paying $15 for each new sign-up.
Considering the crazy people out there and what they are paying (there is currently a $1000 opportunity that wants PR 8 sites only) I expect they’re getting their money’s worth. This means you could get paid (as well as me) for reviewing my post (which I get paid for anyway) which is a review of a feature that lets people review other posts (and get paid) which may themselves be website reviews (that they’re paid for). That’s quite a chain of reviews…
