Adsense rev share to pay guest bloggers
adsense revshare plugin to pay guest bloggers

 2:53 pm on Mar 22, 2008 (gmt 0)

We are about to go live with a blog addition to our web site and may use guest bloggers to post-- but what's a fair way to pay them and how much?

There is much on the web about Adsense Wordpress plug-ins to pay bloggers with portion portion of our Adsense revenue from that particular post--

However, we will not be using Wordpress so this AdSense Sharing Revenue and Earnings System plug-in wouldn't work and I'm hesitant to add anything that's not Google- endorsed.

Any suggestions or tips on how to pay bloggers with a cut of their posts' Adsense that's simple and clean? Would like to hear how others pay contributors and how much too (flat pay per post, monthly fee, pr link only, etc).

This AdSense Sharing Revenue and Earnings System plug-in sounds great, but we have a custom CMS. Thoughts, help, advice, examples...

Our contributors aren't paid, they are given incentives to post. Incentives include random prizes to participants that post on certain topics and just acknowledging them when they reach a certain number of posts. If it's a site about hybrid cars, you could give out free $25 gas cards to those who give the best advice on saving gas mileage. Even 4 gas card prizes a month would only cost you $100. A lot cheaper than paying a single blogger if you want them to post regularly.

You can easily share AdSense revenue on any site using a simple banner ad rotation program.

Make different banner ad campaigns for each guest blogger that contains both your AdSense code and their AdSense code and install it on their pages.

Nothing could be simpler.

The Adsense API allows for revenue sharing:

Yes, but the Adsense API requires a minimum of 100K views of user pages per day which is easily beyond the reach of your average website.

Thanks for that heads up, incrediBill - I haven't properly looked into using the Adsense API at any point to date and I wasn't aware that there are usage restrictions.

You can go with the channel feature of Adsense, giving a different channel to each of your blogger. And you decide how much revenue you share depend on the level of activities of each blogger. This must work well, if you don't have to much blogger.

Thanks for the tips- I will have a programmer look into the Adsense API module. For those of you who do pay bloggers, is there an industry-standard for fee?
