3. How do I get more exposure for my blog?

This is a question we receive often. There is no easy answer, but fortunately, being part of the Foodie Blogroll gives you a good starting point.
 
A food blog that is listed on the Foodie Blogroll is easier to find than a blog that is not part of any community. Anyone searching for food blogs on Google, will come across the Foodie Blogroll in the first page of their search results. Being listed on the Foodie Blogroll, might help users looking for specific blogs find yours.
 
As for exposure, your blog chances of being found are higher if you do all or some of the following:
 
Make sure your enter blog tags. These are keywords that will make it possible to find your blog when users search for words related to what your blog is about. Use tags (words) that represent your blog.
 
Participate in the Forum discussions. This will also get you in touch with other members, growing your network of food blogging friends.
 
Add Friends to your member profile on the Foodie Blogroll website. Find members that share common interests or whose blogs you like, and send them a Friend request.
 
Also, by being with the Foodie Blogroll, your blog has a chance (every day) to be featured on the Widget, which would bring a lot of exposure.  Every day we feature 5 blogs on the Foodie Blogroll Widget section titled : "Today's 5 Random Blogs". The blogs featured in that sections are selected automatically by our system via a random process. Being featured in the Today's 5 Random Blogs section is entirely a matter of chance.
 
Have friends vote for your blog, using the Rank Blog button (it can be found on every blog's details page). Later on, we will feature blogs with the highest ratings on the website front page, which should bring even more exposure.
 
Use Twitter to talk about your blog, new posts, etc.


4. How do I go about getting my blog on the Featured Blogs of The Week?

 We are always happy to draw attention to the blogs in our community. With literally thousands to choose from, it can be quite a task. That is where the community comes in - if you love a blog or blogs, or would like to have your own blog featured on an upcoming Friday, please email us: support@foodieblogroll.com


5. How does The Foodie Blogroll determine the number of hits a blog receives? What time are these numbers posted?

The number of hits shown on your blog profile and the Foodie Blogroll website represents the number of impressions registered by the widget on your blog. This number might differ from other statistics, especially internal server stats, because the widget only records impressions on javascript enabled browsers. The stats are re-set Sunday at Midnight (12AM, EST USA).


6. How does the sign up process work?

The sign up process is broken up in two parts:

First, new users submit their account information that consists of first and last name, username, email address and password. Before submitting your account information please make sure to read the Members Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. New users receive an email with a link to confirm their email address.

Second, after clicking on the confirmation link, users are taken to a page that lets them know their new account has been confirmed. Users then receive an email letting them know their account has been confirmed. That email also contains their username and password. Please make sure to save that information in order to login in the future.

Note: Users won't be able to login into the FoodieBlogRoll unless they have confirmed their email addres first. After completing this process and activating their account, users are able to submit their blogs to the FoodieBlogRoll and receive all the benefits of being part of our community.

To sign up please visit this link.


7. How long does the approval process take?

 Due to our high volume of requests, it could take up for 4 weeks (one month) for your blog to be reviewed for membership. This may seem like a long time, however, this is a very small  operation and sometimes we get upwards of 20 requests a day, so your patience is appreciated! :)


8. How long will it take for my application to be reviewed?

Due to the overwhelming numbers of daily requests to join The Foodie Blogroll, it can take a few weeks before we are able to review your submission. We thank you very much for your patience and look forward to reviewing your blog as soon as we can!

Please post your question on this section of the forum and we are confident you will get help from a fellow member. Foodies are some of the nicest people ever!


10. My request to join The Foodie Blogroll was rejected however, my blog fits all the requirements. Why didn't you send me the Foodie Blogroll Widget?

Most Foodie Blogroll Request Rejections happen because information you typed into the registration form was incorrect. Most often URLS are misspelled and therefore cannot be verified as a food blog. If you feel you fit all the requirements to join and you received this rejection in error, please contact us and let us know why you feel this was an error.

Other times requests are rejected because you have less than 5 posts (that are food related) or less than 80% of your blog is food related. If this is the problem, feel free to let us know when your blog meets the requirements and we will review your blog for approval.


11. What are the requirements for joining?

  • Display the Foodie Blogroll widget on your blog's sidebar - The widget must be located on your blog's sidebar.
     
  • Your site must be a blog - this means that it must be in blog format, meaning that there are posts that follow a chronological order by date. It cannot be a static HTML website. If your site is of a purely commercial nature (like you are selling food related products or publications), but you still want to be a part of the blogroll, you check out our advertisers information page.
     
  • Your blog must have at least 5 entries - and these entries must be specifically food related - recipes, reviews, how-to s, food related product reviews and the like.
     
  • Your blog must be at least one month old. If your blog is older than one month, then it must have been regularly updated in the past month.
     
  • Your overall blog content must be 75% food related - meaning that 3 out of 4 posts have to be related to food on average.


12. Why can't I find my blog on the listing? Am I eligible for the giveaways?

New blogs are not listed nor eligible.

Publisher - Publisher related issues


13. Publisher Program: Can I choose the topic or categories of ads showing on my blog?

At this time we do not have a system to allow our publishers to choose the type and/or topic of the ads appearing on their blogs. However, and thanks to all the feedback we’ve been receiving, we are planning to develop a system to enable our publishers to exclude specific ad categories from their ad rotation.


14. Publisher Program: Can I do product reviews and giveaways on my own?

In our exclusive contract there is nothing to prevent you from doing giveaways or reviews on your blog by working directly with food companies. For example, if POM Wonderful invited you to an event or to review one of their products directly, we would be excited for you, not hinder you.


15. Publisher Program: Do you give publishers more than one AD Unit?

Yes! You can display as many as 3 AD units on your blog: 300x250, 728x90 and 160x600. The ad units must be placed above the fold (the top 1000 pixels of your blog) and will run both premium and remnant campaigns. Fill rate is as high as 99%. You can also place 3 AD units below the fold. The BTF (below the fold, means below the first 1000 pixels of your page) will run campaigns from our RTB partners Google ADx, OpenX Market and AOL/AdTech. 


16. Publisher Program: Do you include non-US international impressions?

Yes, non-US AD impressions (UK, AU, CA) are going to be included in the program. Initially, the CPM rate might be low but we are confident we can get to a competitive rate in the near future, as more and more blogs join and empower us to negotiate better rates to share with our publishers.

We are also working on ways to monetize traffic from non english speaking countries such as France, Italy, Germany and the rest of the world.


17. Publisher Program: How do I customize my blog template to fit the banners?

Depending on your blog's template dimensions, your blog header or sidebar might not accomodate the Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program standard IAB banner sizes.

If your blog is hosted on Blogger.com, please follow the instructions on the guide below to change your template settings so that the banner ads can fit better:

 


18. Publisher Program: How does revenue sharing work?

Publishers receive 50% of the revenue generated by our ADs.

In other words, if you display a $8 CPM campaign on your blog, you get $4 and we get $4.


19. Publisher Program: How does the Traffic Assignment letter affect my site?

If a domain meets comScore’s reporting minimum requirements (100,000 unique visitor per month, based on traffic) it will be listed in comScore’s Community. Most sites in our network do not meet the Comscore minimum reporting (100,000 unique visitor per month) so would not be listed individually in the first place.

With a Traffic Assignment Letter, your site will be listed under Foodie by Glam and it would contribute to the overall Foodie by Glam position thereby playing a part in our sales efforts to ultimately generate revenue for our publishers.

In other words, for most sites, assigning your traffic to us, will make not hurt your blog in any way, but only enhance our ability to monetize your traffic. 


20. Publisher Program: I am already with another Ad Network - why should I switch?

Our Publisher Program is based on a different philosophy than the other networks that are out there - the Foodie Blogroll has always grown from the participation of our members, and this program is no different. We have taken to heart your concerns and questions about other ad networks and have created our program based on all your wishes and feedback.

We understand that many of our members are already under contract with another ad network that requires above the fold ad unit placement or that is very exclusive and restrictive.

Here are the TOP 6 reasons why you should consider joining the Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program:

  • Up to 6 Ad Units -  3 ad units above the fold for premium campaigns, and ad units 3 below the fold for remnant.  No other food focused ad networks allows you to have 6 ad units, all earning revenue plus the freedom to be a blogger (see below).
     
  • Revenue share - We believe that our bloggers should receive a larger portion of the revenue that the ads generate, as you are the driving force behind our network! That's why we decided to offer an unprecedented 50% to you, no matter the CPM rates. Other ad networks sometimes might get as much as $12 CPM for their premium campaigns, but only give you a small portion of it and keep all the rest.
  • No restrictions - on your ability to participate in Google Adsense, Amazon or any other affiliate programs. No restrictions on product reviews - you can work directly with any food companies to promote products on your blog including doing your own giveaways.
  • Non-US impressions - earn revenue on non-US impressions - for example, Foodbuzz does not pay for these impressions, we do!
     

So in other words, you can have 3 ad units above the fold with us running premium and remnant campaigns and 3 ad units below the fold running remnant campaigns. Plus you can AdSense, Amazon affiliates, etc., you get paid for non-US impressions, you get a bigger chunk of the revenue (50%) so we are motivated to get you better and better CPM rates as the more you make the more we make!


21. Publisher Program: I am worried about proving my SSN or TIN on your site - is it safe?

When you login to your account and enter information on your Profile Settings page, the data you send is protected by the industry standard SSL certificate encryption. Our servers are protected by multiple layers of firewalls and a VPN - security is one of our main concerns.

It's possible that on some browsers certain security settings might show the connection as being un-secured - that might be due to the fact that some elements on the page, such as images or ads are not originating from a secure connection.


22. Publisher Program: I get 200K page views per month, how much can I make with your ADs?

Assuming 100% of your traffic is US based, if you blog receives 100,000 page views per month, you could earn between $75 and $200 per month for each above-the-fold ad unit.

This how we got to the $200 amount:

  • Number of impressions: 200,000
  • Avg eCPM: $2 (this is just an example - rates vary depending on the season, your blog's user demographics and quality)
  • Total Earning: $2x200 = $400
  • Your share (50%) = $200
  • Our share (50%) = $200

If you had 2 or even 3 AD units, then you could earn even more! 3 times as much! Even if not all the impressions are filled by premium campaigns ads, you could still make about the same with 2 ads, as opposed to only one.

Remember that market conditions vary depending on the season (for example, historically January and February and July are times when advertisers budgets are very small, as opposed to the period October to December, when advertising budgets are much larger).

In other words, some months (January) your average eCPM might be lower, some higher, but overall, if you take into account the earnings from the entire year (which will include lows and highs) your eCPM will be competitive.


23. Publisher Program: I have a relatively new blog and my ads earnings are low. Why?

Our premium advertisers look for blogs that attract a specific audience and they buy advertising on blogs individually through us. Since your blog is up and coming it might not yet show on the advertisers radar at this time. But as you grow that could always change!

We can definitely help you maximize your blog earning potential though, while you work at getting it established.

We partnered with the largest remnant providers (Rubicon, Google, etc.) to bring you remnant ads.

With us you are able to get higher rates on remnant ads than you would be able to get on your own. This is because we, as a large combined network, are able to negotiate better deals with Rubicon and other remnant partners as they only work with networks or individual blogs that generate over 30 million impressions per month.


24. Publisher Program: I installed the AD Tags - how long before the ads start showing?

It may take up to one hour before the ads start showing after you install them on your blog. We are working on a way for the ads to start showing faster. If you do not see the ads after one hour, please let us know and we'll help you troubleshoot.


25. Publisher Program: I installed the AD Tags - why is it only showing Publisher Program banners?

Normally, the AD Tags will show only "house" ads or Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program banners until one of our editors has manually verified that the banners are placed correctly on your blog.

After you install the Ad Tags, please notify us and we will usually review your blog within 24 hours. After your blog is approved, it may take a few hours for regular ads to start showing.


26. Publisher Program: I run Google Adsense on my blog - can I keep it and still join?

Yes! With us, you have the freedom to run Google AdSense and other affiliate programs on your blog, as far as they are placed below the fold (anywhere lower than the top 1000 pixels of your blog). Also you can work with AdSense and Amazon Affiliate programs, as far as you keep our ads above the fold and only use "text only" based banners for AdSense.


27. Publisher Program: Is the Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program the same as the Foodbuzz Featured Publisher Program?

No, the Foodie Blogroll Publisher program is offered by the Foodie Blogroll, which is not related to FoodBuzz. We used to be partners some time back, but have since gone different ways.

Our program is centered on 2 basic features: revenue sharing and more freedom to the publisher to do as they like with their blog!


28. Publisher Program: Payment Policy - Paypal & Check Limits

We pay our publishers through Paypal. If you do not have a Paypal account, please sign up for one, they are free! If you live in the USA and do not have a Paypal account (we strongly recommend that you get one).

For PayPal payments there is NO minimum monthly limit - we will send your payment every month, even if it amounts to less than $50.

  • US based Publishers
    If you don't have a PayPal account and we need to send an actual check to you via mail, then just like other ad networks, including Google AdSense, your earnings have to reach at least $50 before we can send you a payment. This is due to the fees and expense involved in actually making the payment. Payment via CHECK is only avaialble to US based Publishers and only for extraordinary circumstances.
     
  • Non-US based Publishers
    If you live outside of the United States, we can only pay you via Paypal. If you don't have a Paypal account we will not be able to send your earning payments.


29. Publisher Program: What does 'Above The Fold' mean?

Above the fold is defined as ad units that begin within the first 1000 pixels of the page.

All Premium Placement units must be placed above the fold and FBR ads should be the only ads above the fold on your site. Standard ad units from other providers must be placed below the fold so as not to compete with FBR premium ad units. 

See the image below for an example.


30. Publisher Program: When will I get paid? How?

When: Payments are on “NET 90” term – this means, 90 days from the end of the month we paying you for. Example, you earn $50 in February. Starting at February 28, adding 3 months to it (Net 90) we get to around June 1st. So in this example, the payment will go out via Paypal, during the first week of June.

How: Payments are sent via Paypal during the first 7 days of the month following the NET 90 period.


31. Publisher Program: Where do I access the Revenue or Earnings report for my blog?

How Do I Access The Report?

To access the report login to your Foodie Blogroll account, then click on Site Earnings. From there, select the blog you'd like to access your earnings report for and click on GO. The report allows you see an estimate of your blog's earnings graphicallyand the total for the month.

Reconciled and Estimated Earnings:

The earnings reports shows you a detailed break-down of your impressions, eCPM and earnings by campaign and geo-location (US and non-US). The earnings amounts are updated on a weekly basis. We are also working on a new "export-to-csv" feature to allow you to download a CSV file showing a break-down of impressions/earnings by campaign/ad size/day and country. Earning reports now indicate if the amounts shown are estimated or reconciled:

  • "Estimated" earnings are rough calculations based on non-finalized data (the best we can do during any given month) as it usually takes 30-40 days for us to get finalized amounts from our various campaign sources.
  • "Reconciled" earnings - once we receive the final count of billable impressions delivered for each campaign and ad unit, we cross reference the data to calculate the final earnings - you will see finalized amounts marked as "reconciled". These final amounts are what we then use to set up your payments.

Please Note: Reconciled Earnings may be Different from Estimates

"Estimated" earnings are rough calculations and projections based on non-finalized data (the best we can do during any given month) as it usually takes 30-60 days for us to get finalized amounts from our various advertising partners. Actual reconciled earnings may differ from the estimates, due to several factors including adjustments applied to earning data from our advertising partners, difference in ad delivery verification protocols, etc.

The earnings showing in the report are an estimate based on the number of billable impressions delivered by our ad server. The eCPM is affected by multiple factors - GEO location, the CPM of the campaign (premium or back-fill).

This report includes earnings from non-US impressions so the average eCPM will appear lower because of these lower CPM campaigns.


32. Publisher Program: Why do I need to provide my Tax ID?

Publisher Program members who are U.S. business or individuals, or a non-U.S. business with U.S. Activities are required to submit tax information. 

If you are a U.S. business or individual and you do not have a tax I.D. such as a Taxpayer Identification Number or Social Security Number, you'll need to acquire one.

We suggest that you obtain your TIN as soon as possible. Please note that the process of obtaining a TIN may take several weeks. You can visit the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website for more information on obtaining a U.S. TIN: IRS information page.

You may not be required to submit a U.S. tax ID if you are a U.S. residents and/or if you do not have U.S. activities.


33. Publisher Program: Why do you serve remnant ads (Rubicon, OpenX Market, Google ADX, etc.)?

We use a variety of remnant (or back-fill) providers, including Rubicon, OpenX Market and Google ADX.

While we continue building our program and adding premium campaigns, we rely on remnant providers to fill impressions that would otherwise go to waste. All ad networks utilize remnant providers to maximize their publisher's earnings. For example, we might use remnant providers to cover traffic that would not go toward premium campaigns, for a variety of reasons.

Limitations of Premium Campaigns
In general, most premium campaigns may have specific requirements that would limit who and when is shown the ads - for example, daily user caps (how many times a particula ad is server to the same unique user within a 24 hour period), others have specific days of the week or times of the day, others have lifetime caps (how many times a particular ad is server to the same user through the life of campaign), geo graphic filters, which can be as specific as coutries or even cities, etc. remnant comes useful when all premium campaign impressions for that user or for that day or for that region, for example, are exhausted.

We are working hard on lining up more and more premium campaigns with fortune 500 companies, but in order to fill the impressions that our premium campaigns and premium partners cannot fill (for all ther reasons explained above), we have integrated remnant providers to enable us to monetize as many impressi

Rates and Fill Rate are Higher with FBR
Thanks to our network's combined high traffic, we can negotiate better rates with our remnant providers than single publishers can, as we have the weight of thousands of publishers behind us, giving us extra muscle to elicit higher rates. This in turn, give you a chance to earn higher rates with our remnant providers, while also running premium campaigns that only an ad network such as ours can provide.

Also, because we work with several remnant providers we can provide a much higher fill rate than any individual remnant provider can by itself.

You may be earning the same CPM rate by having google ads through us, as if you had them on your own, but you have the added benefit of premium campaigns, plus monetizing your non-US impressions.

Also, when we cycle through Google Ads through your Ad Tag, we use the Foodie Blogroll unique identifiers, so it will not interfere with your Adsense units, as they are connected to your own Google Adsense account.


34. Publisher Program: Will I have to pay taxes on my earnings?

You may have to pay taxes on your Publisher Program earnings. It is your responsibility to understand and comply to the appropriate tax rules and laws that apply to you as a resident of your country, as we are unable to provide you with tax advice.

We are required by United States tax laws to collect certain tax-related information from some publishers - U.S. residents or publishers with U.S. activities. If you are required to provide tax information, please provide your tax ID in your Publisher Settings page.

Any tax-related information provided by the Foodie Blogroll is not intended as and should not be construed as legal, tax or investment advice. For tax advice on about how tax laws apply to you, please consult your tax advisor.
