P ink Lemonade would like to announce that we have made the decision to no longer accept paid adverts on it's Entrecard widget. We have cancelled any previously approved paid ads and from this day forward will only accept entrecard credit funded blogger ads.
We do not feel it is fair to the bloggers who pay a hefty heap of credits to advertise on the Entrecard widget only to have it taken over at minimum, 50% of the time (more if you ask me), by paid advertisers.
We will accept paid ads on our contest page Entrecard widget, but no longer on our front page - so feel free to advertise with us knowing that if you place your ad on our widget you will not have to share it with a paid advertiser - it will be yours for the entire 100% of your run.
I have recently experienced the results of the new "system" and found that an ad that would have generated a minimum of 150 clicks on a weekday, only received 6 - the only explanation is the new paid ad system. I don't feel this is fair to bloggers who advertise "the old way" using their entrecard credits.
You will also be able to drop and surf, assured that the ad you click will, indeed, be another entrecard blog - not a paid ad site that leads to nowhere.
Please note: although I have cancelled all of our paid ads, I have heard rumors that they still continue to show up, so be patient with us if a few slip through the cracks and be assured that it is a problem on Entrecard's side, not ours.
