At my request, A Penny Saved… has been added to pfblogs.com. I’m sure there are those of you out there who are asking why I would submit my feeds to an aggregator that uses ads.
I think that’s the worst arguement ever. When was the last time you searched for something on Google? See those ads on the right hand side of your results? They show up when your content is there as well. Are you submitted to Technorati? See all those ads on the Technorati pages? Yep, you guessed it. They show up when your content is there too.
At least pfblogs.com gives me the ability to rotate my adsense code in once in a while if I so choose. I did not choose to if you are curious. I think most people click through to the sites rather than through the ads.
So, why did I decide to add myself to pfblogs.com? I see it as a symbiotic relationship. I add a little content to their aggregator and in exchange, traffic that is interested in my content clicks through to my site. The better they do, the more traffic that is potentially interested in my content and comes to my site. It’s the same reason that I submit to Google, Yahoo, Technorati and the whole lot.
If you have content that is PF, REI, or Invest related, consider adding yourself also. If you still are a little skittish about the ads, add your code to the rotation and get some of the ad time on the site as well.
