BlogAds is one of the oldest blog advertising agencies out there today – just about every major blog that you can think of likely runs their ads….
But today is the day that all of that may have come crashing down..
For the last several months, the crew over at Blogads have been developing a new interface & advertising system. This is a good thing as their current system is rather ancient in its approach.
The downside is that everyone needed to insert new ad code on their pages in order to participate in the new ad system… and most still haven’t installed the new adcode….
- The old order page with its many blogs – and the new order page with significantly less blogs
- The 9,990 backlinks in Google for ‘www.blogads.com’ – and the zero backlinks in Google for web.blogads.com (the new home for blogads).
Today is the last day that the old ad system is being supported… so there are still what appears to be hundreds of blogs running the old ad code – including PerezHilton, one of the largest sites on BlogAds..
A long time BlogAds user even stated that “the new system is actually worse than the old one, which in itself is difficult to believe”…
With this mess going on, should these folks even be in business?
