I've signed up with a new ad network called Federated Media recently started by John Battelle (one of the founders of Wired
Magazine, according to the Wikipedia
entry about him). In an effort to better match readers of this site to potential advertisers, Federated Media wants you all to take a brief survey
. It's only a few questions: age, address, social security number, credit card info, bank account info, etc. (No, just kidding... they're not looking to steal your identity.) Apparently these surveys are important to advertisers, so if you have a few minutes it would be a great way to help the site out. And hopefully it will result in some better ads. Thanks.
(This should be a one-time thing... the survey will stay active for a few days and then close, and after that I don't think they'll need to collect survey data again. Oh, and if the survey says 'March 2006', just ignore that. I was supposed to link to the survey back in March, but I procrastinated.)
Over what period of time?
and hour, a week, a century perhaps?
I couldn't resist. When asked on which 5 websites I spent most time, I answered:
1. MoH (of course!)
4. more porn
5. yet more porn
Yeah, I know you need advertisers to keep the site going, but I still think that the people who work in marketing are one of the lowest forms of life on earth.
and oh yeah, eriC, nothing in life is free and the quite minimal task of completing a three minute survey is really not much at all for Alex to ask of us considering how much work he puts into the site.
just my opinion 😊
(Braces self for the resultant avalanche of spam.)
Thank you Alex.
YES YES YES YES!!!!!!
And I agree with Chuck that it's the least we can do to help out Alex. Afterall, if it wasn't for this site, our little UK adventure would never have happened!
