Ryan’s ad has been running for only two days and already it has generated 26,395 banner views and sent 820 visitors to Ryan’s site for an amazing 3.1% click rate. If these stats hold up, Ryan will receive over 12,300 clicks to his site (assuming he doesn’t sell the spot). That works out to a CPC of only 8 cents. However, I would imagine the clicks will level off as the days go by. These stats doesn’t include all the traffic Ryan received from my blog post about the sale.
The 300×250 Ad Shows Up In The RSS Feed
Expect a Big Price Increase
300×250 ad spot on the blog AND the RSS feed for $1,000. I think Ryan and Bidvertiser pulled down the ad deal of the year. Don’t expect to buy the spot for $1,000 when it goes on sale again.
