Supporting Phone Scoop

If you could add a "paid advertising" section (or some such) to the "Links" section it would help me support you. I click through, and have referred several other people to, sites I have seen advertised here. Of course this would require some more maintenance from you since you would want to remove past advertiser's links from that page. Well, it's just a thought.

I am of course assuming that you get paid for click throughs and/or earn a commission off any purchase that linked from your site.

Thanks for your enthusiasm and support! Very Happy

Just clicking on ads for the sake of clicking (to support the site) doesn't really help. Most of the ads are not per-click, but for the ones that are, that kind of extra clicking can skew the numbers, and too much of it (like from an organized effort) could even get me in trouble.

The best specific thing you can do is just keep the site in mind whenever you shop for phones, accessories, ringtones, or software. Each available phone now has its own "Shop" page with phone-specific affiliate links. It's a great place to start shopping online, and any purchases made after using those links help support the site directly, at no extra cost to you.

Thanks! Very Happy

Right. I don't click ads except for info (i.e. to shop) or to buy so I'm not worried about skewing your numbers. I do however recommend good deals that I see advertised here (or on other forums), it would be nice to be able to refer them to others and give credit to you since I saw the ad here.

I figure it also kind of wastes an advertiser's "incident" when I do a bunch of reloads looking for one ad.

Ahhh... I see what you mean now. Smile

That's definitely a good idea! I will work on that!
