With ReviewMe you get paid for blogging (or not as the case may be)

I came across an interesting new Blogging community site tonight, Review Me where Bloggers are paid by advertisers to write about their article or site.

Here's there explanation of how it works:
  1. Submit your site for inclusion into the ReviewMe publisher network. Begin by creating a free account

  2. If approved, your site will enter the ReviewMe marketplace and clients will purchase reviews from you.

  3. You decide to accept the review or not.

  4. You will be paid $20.00 to $200.00 for each completed review that you post on your site.

It's an interesting idea and I can see how it's trying to capture another different aspect of web social networking so I decided to create an account and give it a go and register the Blog with keywords such as Brittany, Gite, France, etc and a nice snappy description that might entice advertisers to send me the odd dollar or two.

Unfortunately the blog was not accepted and the rather terse FAQ answer as to why simply said
To be accepted into ReviewMe, a blog must meet a minimum number of citations, subscribers, and traffic. If your blog is rejected, you may want to return in a few months' time and submit again.

So instant fortune has escaped me again ...

Be interesting to see if it actually catches or is just another here today, gone tomorrow concept.

  • Hello Geoffrey

    It seemed a bit too good to be true. I registered as I liked the thought of being paid to review a product but I hit the same wall as you did and they said my site was not suitable but failed to give an explanation.

    never mind:)

  • Hi Phil

    Oh well, at least we're both being equally judged as unworthy!

    Looking at sites that were on their database I couldn't see any obvious reason for their inclusion compared to ours.

    Maybe they will invite more people onto the database in time, but it would be nice to know what their selection criteria is.
