I've talked about the addition of advertisements to https://Steemleo.com a few times in the past. Many users and LEO hodlers have asked if we would put ads on the site to burn more LEO from the SE exchange.
My issue with ads is mostly aesthetic. I don't like the user experience of having ads all over the place, especially when they are adsense ads which tend to look like shit.
CoinZilla strikes a happy medium. While most people will still likely be slightly annoyed by ads, CoinZilla offers cryptocurrency ads with optimized banner images.
Ultimately this means more relevant ads than something like google adsense and also a better overall look and feel to the website.
I was working with a CoinZilla representative for a little over a week to get ourselves applied and approved through their ad network. They were excited to see our traffic as it is slowly growing over time the numbers are very impressive for a brand new website that has only been in operation for a few months.
Based on the numbers for about 1 day of the ads, I think we will burn about 10,000 LEO from the SE market this month.. This would be huge for the health of the LEO economy and I can only imagine that this number will grow with each passing month as we get more and more eyeballs to the website.
I also have mentioned this a few times and I would like to continue to encourage you to post through the https://steemleo.com website.
I talked about this on @pennsif's show the other day, but the importance of posting natively through the website cannot go understated. When you post through https://steemleo.com, we get the canonical link which means that it improves the overall SEO and traffic to our website. Now that we have ads, this is more important than ever in the effort to burn more LEO each month.
To encourage posting through the interface, we've adopted the Busy.org model of upvoting users who have posted through Steemleo with the @leo.voter account (currently at about 85,000 SP and growing).
We also have the LEO badge next to the name of a user who posted through SteemLeo, which typically leads to better curation, attention and overall rewards to content that is native to our platform.
I'm really excited about working with CoinZilla as they are one of the largest ad networks in the crypto space. Even Steemit.com uses them as a primary source of advertisements. The potential here to burn tens of thousands of LEO each month is immense and it's only just getting started. The more we market this website and post natively through it, the better SteemLeo and the LEO token becomes!
I'll put out another video sometime in the next month to do a live burn of LEO from the CoinZilla ad revenue. It will be awesome to see how much we can burn! So please, head over to https://steemleo.com and start making some killer investment content!
I'll see you over there 🦁
