Bidvertiser Offers RSS Ads

Long time John Chow dot Com sponsor, Bidvertiser, has entered the RSS advertising game. Officially launched today, the new service will allow bloggers to monetize their RSS feeds.

Signing up for the service is a bit more involve than most RSS advertising solutions. You first need to be an approved Bidvertiser publisher. You can sign up for the publisher program here. Once approved, log into your account and click on the Public Beta link to sign up for the RSS option.

Enter Feed Information


Enter the URL to your feed and a name you want to give for your new Bidvertiser feed and click Next.

Verify Feed Ownership

Once you’ve finished entering your feed information, you are required to verify that you are indeed the owner of the feed. That is done by making a post with Your Feed Verification code. My code is:


Bidvertiser will look for the code in the feed and once it finds it, your account will be approve and you can start making money with your RSS. Once the feed has been verified (it takes about a minute), you can delete the post with the verification code. More advertising options are always good. I’ll let you know how it does.

    I knew you’ll gonna blog about this :). I have it posted also in my blog πŸ™‚

    1. Everyone is blogging about it πŸ˜‰

      1. I am not blogging about this. I didn’t even know Bidvertiser had a feed program until Mr. Chow mentioned it.

        John – Thanks for the hollar. I signed up through your link and added to the feed. I just don’t see any ads on the RSS feeds yet. Have you experienced this issue either?

  3. MoneyNing says:

    This is great to know. As the only other option being feedburner and custom ads for RSS, this will for sure add some revenue for everyone.

  4. Alan Johnson says:

    I am looking forward to hearing some reports about how Bidvertiser’s RSS ads are performing, definitely a nice addition to the RSS monetization market.

    1. It’s a great idea, I’m sure lots of people will use it. :mrgreen:

      1. Etienne Teo says:

        Interesting stuff john.

    2. I’d love to see some reports on this as well.

  5. Hafiz Dhanani says:

    Seems pretty interesting John, but this doesn’t seem as helpful for people with an established feed. Getting people to change their subscription address seems difficult, especially when it is only so you can send them more ads. πŸ˜•

    1. David Chew says:

      It could be difficult because need to change the address.

  6. Zac Johnson says:

    Nice, would be cool to compare all the networks working with rss feed ads, and see which bring in some nice results.

  7. New revenue for a New Year—but for only those who have lots of subscribers— why not try Net Audio Ads ?

  8. I will definitely be interested in how it does. It could do quite well for you with more than 14,000 subscribers.

    1. David Chew says:

      For those that has a lot of subscribers is good but for those who not then not sure it is good.

      1. That is a true point, David but you also have to keep in mind, when your site begins to take off and your readership and subscribership begins to grow like a rocket ship,

        BE READY!

    I haven’t even tried out Bidvertiser yet. The ads always seemed a bit too ugly, but maybe I’ll have to give it a try soon.

    1. IMHO the income is more important than the look of the ads. πŸ™„

  10. Michael Kwan says:

    Somehow I don’t think Gary was the author of this post, because there are typos and there’s no ‘this post was guest-blogged by’ line. New Year’s goof-up, John?

    1. Gary Jones says:

      I don’t remember writing it either πŸ™‚

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        John is your hired ghost writer.

      2. MoneyNing says:

        I was wondering why Bluefur would promote this! πŸ™‚

  11. Thanks for the explanation John, I’m glad you can still run it through Feedburner..

    What happens if you’re using Adsense on your Feedburner account, I’m guessing this would need to be disabled first..

    1. Adsense and bidvertiser are allowed to be shown together as long as their ads don’t look identical to each others.

  12. Nice way to increase income but I already have Adsense in my RSS feed :mrgreen:

  13. Hmmm Bidvertiser in RSS feed.. might be interesting!:D

  14. Wow Cool! I’ll try it out on my blog. Might work out, never know.

  16. Karol Krizka says:

    Great! I have been looking for an RSS ad solution for some time, so this is great news since I am already a Bidvertiser publisher!

  17. Contest Beat says:

    How much do you currnetly make off RSS ads?

  18. Sounds pretty sweet. I’ll have to check Bidvertiser out.

  19. Any advertising on an RSS feed sounds like a good idea.

    1. Alan Johnson says:

      It is a concept which isn’t new, but it will definitely be interesting to see if Bidvertiser manages to have a better performance than the competition.

      Alan Johnson

      1. Which at the moment, they are failing to do. Hopefully the new service they are offering will increase their chances.

        1. Alan Johnson says:

          I’m pretty sure we will be receiving reports as to how the Bidvertiser RSS ads are performing fairly soon…definitely something worth keeping an eye on.

          Alan Johnson

  20. Will says:

    hmm interesting. There are so many different forms of income. I wonder what will be next?

  21. Liviu Pantea says:

    Sounds as a good and new way to monetize my blogs. Thanks for the tip John.

  22. Jonathan says:

    John, this is great news for you, maybe someone else will up with bidvertiser just to later find out they are the worst publisher network on the internet. Besides, they don’t even have an decent advertiser base.

  23. The only problem is, that they need to get together with a proper feed system like Google did when they bought Feedburner for this to be effective, as most users will not want to move their feeds from places like feedburner to accomodate these ads, which are offered as integration on othre services.

  24. mcangeli says:

    I have my feeds for one of my nonblog sites run through pheedo’s rss advertising setup and I see a couple of bucks a month from them. I wonder if bidvertisers ads would be better….

  25. Haroon says:

    i will try this one too
    tho i have only used tla uptill now i hope it will be a good option

  26. Thank you for this information. I have done it. Let us see the effect. Thanks

  27. Are your comments being moderated, John?

  28. Bloggero says:

    Thanks for this information. I may try this sometimes.

  29. Satish S says:

    It means promoting a new feed altogether…
    Now thats no mean feat..

  30. Benny Ong says:

    Ehem… Will keep an eye on this one. It did not caught my interest the first time around but second read reveals that it might be worth a try.

  31. I’m already a Bidvertiser publisher and have not tried this rss ads. Maybe I’ll try it now after reading your blog.

  32. Bill says:

    I did not try it yet but I have just got an email from them that they now have a plugin for WordPress and a solution for FeedBurner and Blogger which allows you to keep your feed address and even keep your FeedBurner count.
    Maybe I’ll try it tomorrow, too busy now.
