We have a couple small updates to tell you about today.
Facebook fan count
We noticed that publishers have been actively building up their following on Facebook, and many of them have a very impressive following. Facebook fan pages have become yet another extension of a website and online brand. Therefore, it only makes sense for us to include Facebook fan counts as part of the public stats section on publisher buy now pages. To add your Facebook fan count to your buy now page, go to the Publisher Dashboard > Edit Site, and add your fan page URL. Go back to the Publisher Dashboard, click on “update stats” and your fan count will appear on your buy now page.
The hat tip for this idea goes to Adriana of Scene360. Thanks Adriana!
To help promote ad space, publishers will often tweet links to their BSA buy now page. When done in moderation, this can be a great way to make sure your Twitter followers are aware of the ad space for sale on your site. We wanted to make this easier for publishers by providing a shortened link for each buy now page. On the Publisher Dashboard, each site has its own http://bsa.ly/[key] link that goes to the buy now page and a link to tweet about it.
As always, if you have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to send me an email: todd _at_ buysellads.com (attn: spam bots – I know my _at_ trick won’t fool you, but it makes me feel better).
