New post! And about those ads…

Author: akiratheoniDecember 22nd, 2008

Yeah it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog. Anyway just wanted to post what Ziveeman and I have been doing at Zantherus.

Well, to be frank, it hasn’t been too much but it is enough to take away precious posting time on Zantherus, so I hope the members will do their job and post more :)

Right now we’ve been focusing on advertising. Our Alexa rank (according to my browser) is #4,162,732. Which, I hope you can tell, is not good. Of course it’s better than being “unranked”… wait, I don’t even know if that’s possible. So basically, our Alexa ranking sucks. We’re trying to improve it. Which brings us to our next point:


No, not ads OF Zantherus. Ads ON Zantherus.

Yes you heard me.

Don’t worry, we won’t be putting pop-ups or those annoying hover ads that you see on some other forums or sites. It’ll be simple text ads, so they won’t be too annoying. Ziveeman and I have been running Zantherus out of our pockets since it started so I hope everyone understands our choice. But, ads won’t be appearing on Zantherus for awhile because we need to increase our PageRank and Alexa ranking… advertisers won’t want to advertise on our site if we have a Alexa rank of four million.

We’re planning to make the ads only viewable to at least regular members and guests. I’m debating whether Silver members should be able to view it (probably not), but Gold Members, Senior Members, and Moderators will NOT view them fo’ sho’.

For the info, we just purchased an ad on the game ForumWarz. So if you want to check it out, register for the game and play it. Also, let me know so I can invite you to the Zantherus klan. It’s a really fun game and I’ve been only playing it for about a week. As of right now the ad hasn’t been approved but I’m sure it will be soon.

Anyway look out for more posts on the status of this ad campaign as well as other things behind the scenes on Zantherus.

Update: Our ad on ForumWarz was surprisingly enough, already approved. We’ve already gotten 101 impressions on the site. No click-throughs yet, but hey, it’s only been approved for like twenty minutes.
