I just had a conversation with someone in the blogging line regarding some hack for their ads display on their blog. You know, those ads that have the logo of the company at the footer of the advertise blocks, the question was there any way to remove that footer?
Many years ago, many people experimented with removing the ad footer of the advertiser agency. There were many ways in doing it. One of those ways was just by adding a display: none into the CSS of the element itself.
As we are talking about Nuffnang, we will use it for the case study.
Back then in year 2008 when Nuffnang first started, this was more than enough to remove the footer by itself.
Then the developers at nuffnang knew about it and developed a counter measure to that CSS hack where most of the CSS elements are now marked important
display: block !important;
height: 18px !important;
text-align: right !important;
width: 336px !important;
How to do it now? Here is one way you can do it. You can play with the margin of your blog and display. One such example would be:
Unless you have a very ultra wide screen, the Nuffnang footer should now be gone from the screen.
Of course, here are some disclaimers regarding doing so for your ads.
While it may look neat on your site with the Nuffnang footer removed, here is a note from the founder himself, Timothy Tiah previously on the removal of the Nuffnang footer.
My last review on my statistic using the Nuffnang Statistic was way back in February 2010. That is about 6 months ago and this time a review of what has TechieDan.com gone through and was there improvement on the side to improve from the previous Nuffnang report.
One of the aims of this report, is to clearly show which part of the world this site was being frequently visited. As Nuffnang are targetting South East Asia market including Australia, TechieDan would like to share his statistical change from the previous record with the current one this time.
Here is TechieDan’s latest visitor count for August 2010 using Nuffnang Statistic Report.
Keeping a constant 50 visitors and above everyday is what TechieDan.com is trying to achieve and this is a good sign for years to come. As mentioned, technical sites usually get more traffic from the States rather than my home country based on my previous post here. So it seems so.
At least now there’s a shift in visits from Malaysia which makes it the 2nd largest visit to this site. Due to this increase in visitors from Malaysia, Nuffnang ads are coming in on TechieDan.com, though not as significant on my personal blog, it still rakes in the advertisements. Of course US based ads would do very well here.
As of now TechieDan.com has only raked in RM7.09 with 2 ongoing ads (not calculated). Will Nuffnang be a major source of income?
Do tell me if there’s any need for improvement on this site. Thank you.
For those who are into blogging and have been blogging for quite awhile, if you’re situated in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines or even Australia, most of you would have heard about Nuffnang Ad Agency. Started by Timothy Tiah and Boss Ming when they decided to do something to encourage bloggers to blog and also for advertisers to find potential online blogs to advertise out there. TechieDan is writing this review in lieu of certain visitors who would want to know how to start making cash while blogging online. (Applies for beginners)
Here’s a review on what TechieDan.com thinks about Nuffnang.
Nuffnang is only good if you have visitors mainly coming from the region that the ads are targeted. This means you had to have majority of your visitors from the mentioned countries earlier (Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines & Australia).
Nuffnang is a good way to promote your blog with it’s widget based blog visiting tool which are good for blogs having low visit counts.
Nuffnang provides free movie outings, programs to it’s members and by achieving Glitterati status (exclusive South East Asia ads), one has higher chance of joining one.
Nuffnang gives the opportunity for one country to get to know another person from another country.
Though Nuffnang is said to give equal opportunity to smaller lesser known blogs to earn their cash, in real situation, small blogs don’t really benefit from Nuffnang – since advertisers wouldn’t want to spend...
