All we bloggers are looking for new
ways to promote our blogs. A problem with a lot of the schemes on offer
is that they only encourage people to come to your blog to click on
something to get points, not to actually read your blog, which is
what you really want. So you might be interested to hear
about a new site called Qassia which only started up on 1st January 2008 but could
be big. It's focused on content, so it can bring people to your site
who actually want to read it. It's currently on private beta and
doesn't show up in the search engines yet so you can only sign up for
it through private invitations like this one. If you sign up through this link, you'll be doing me a favor by earning me lots of
Qassia dollars which I can exchange for advertising. Then of course
you'll be able to do the same by signing up other people. But hurry -
because the rates are likely to drop very soon.
I've pasted in all the info about the site below so you can see what you think:
Qassia is a credit-driven intelligence engine coupled to a cascading tag-based web directory. What exactly does this mean? It means that Qassia will change your life.
At Qassia, you can add your websites for free, and without having to add reciprocal backlinks. You'll get unlimited quality backlinks (as opposed to "no-follow" backlinks). You can also add intel. Short for "intelligence", intel is a tidbit of information. Qassia rewards users who add intel in three ways.
1. Backlinks You get one backlink for every piece of intel you add. Every intel will carry a direct backlink to one of your sites. So the more intel you add, the more backlinks you get.
2. Credit When you add intel, you also get credit, in the form of Qassia dollars. Your net worth in Qassia dollars determines how well your websites rank in our directory.
3. Revenue When your intel is displayed, you get 100% of the advertising revenue generated by that page. That is not a typo, by the way: we give you ALL of the gross ad revenue.
This means that website owners have triple incentive to contribute intel. The contributed intel will allow Qassia to become a vast repository of intelligence, with unrivalled original content. And a vast amount of original content draws traffic like honey draws ants.
Qassia is sometimes confused with sites like Wikipedia, Squidoo, most
recently, Google knol. Qassia is fundamentally different from these
sites, because Qassia is not about asking people to upload
authoritative articles. You don't need to be an egghead at Qassia. You
could upload a lengthy academic treatise if you want, by all means, but
you can also get away with contributing a hastily scribbled tidbit of
information about a person, a company, a place, an event, a thing, or
anything you know about.
What we value is intelligence about the people, companies, and places around you. The people and places do not have to be famous, and the intelligence does not have to be earth-shattering.
Qassia isn't a wiki. Your intel will not get edited (it will get rated, but not edited). You can write your intel in any tone or style you like. You can write in the first person, and you can write your entire intel without using the shift key.
We are sometimes asked if it is free to join and use Qassia. That makes us chuckle. Not only is Qassia 100 percent free - we do not even ask for reciprocal links - but, in addition to promoting your websites and discovering stuff, you can also earn real money - very easily and without any hassle. We have the best, most generous, and most reliable ad revenue sharing program on the web. So if you're thusly inclined - and who wouldn't be? - you'll actually get paid for the effort you put in promoting your websites. No hitch, no catch. Now, if that ain't a sweet deal, we don't know what is.
We believe that, only by completely pampering our users and giving more
than any other website, and in fact giving more than the users
themselves expect, can we attain our goal of becoming the most
incredible website the world has ever seen.
Qassia is a new era. Think of the bits and pieces of intel as the gravel which will fill the potholes on the information superhighway. While the Wikipedia and other knowledge repositories are huge, boasting tens of thousands of articles, less than 1 percent of human knowledge has been uploaded to the Internet. At Qassia, we are giving users the incentive and the freedom to add the remaining 99.9 percent.
The vast web of intel created at Qassia will produce more than a useful intelligence engine. The advent of Qassia is a cataclysmic event in the history of the Internet. We are redefining the web experience. Come be part of history and create your free Qassia account now. Sign up here.
