LinkPizza script

The LinkPizza script that you installed on your website automatically converts outgoing links into affiliate links. This way you can easily make money when someone clicks on a link on your article. Our script works on your entire website, but doesn’t influence how google reads your pages. Even if, in your SEO-data shows it’s a blocked resource, on Google your page isn’t blocked and thus will be found in search results.

Google SEO ranking

Tracking scripts, like the LinkPizza script, don’t have influence on indexability. What may have a bigger influence are the frequent updates Google does to its algorithm. Read more about this in the MOZ article about SEO ranking. Google explains that scripts are not a problem and that warnings about the subject are about scripts that influence content on a visual level.

MOZ is one of the leading search engine optimization companies who track Domain Authority. Domain Authority is a number from 1 to 100 which indicated the value of your domain. The level of the number provides an accurate indication of your website’s position in search engines. You may also find this number in your MediaKit on LinkPizza (which you will find under your websites).

What is a blogger to do?

There are some elements you can review or adjust to find out why the number of visitors on your website is going down. Take a look at this article from MOZ, which explains how you can adjust these elements. We listed a couple of questions you may ask yourself:

  • Is your website Mobile ready? Since November 2016 Google is testing with its mobile index.
  • Does your website use Https?
  • Have you lost backlinks?
  • Are your WordPress and themes up to date? Google adjusts its algorithm on a daily bases and most themes adopt to this.

Still not convinced??

To help you our, we added a checkbox to our WordPress plugin (under advanced), which loads a version of the script that isn’t blocked. You may check this box if you use WordPress version 5.0.7. Blocking our script will make Google detect that your website visitors still go to the destination you are sending them to, and not to LinkPizza.com. Remember that this may have a negative influence on our on-page SEO, so checking this box is at your own risk.

If you would like to make money on a specific link, without using the script, you may always use the shortened link or a manual redirect link. Remember that advertisers like to know their link’s data and may only want to work with you if you have our script on your website.

We hope to have informed you and look forward to seeing your amazing articles!

How it works

Before an advertiser decides to collaborate with you, he compares several publishers based on their MediaKit. He judges which of these publishers best fit the content campaign’s goals and decides who will generate the most views and clicks, and against what price.

The MediaKit contains different elements which you can add to, to optimise your chances of getting selected for campaigns. Add information to your MediaKit for an accurate overview of your website and what you want and can deliver.

Categories*

Check the boxes that categorise your website’s content and subjects. The maximum amount of categories you can choose from is 7. Besides our main categories, you may select subcategories.

Marketplace

Indicate that you would like your MediaKit showcased in the marketplace and what kind of products you offer against what price.

Products
Your website’s content determines what kind of content you publish, your products. For an extended explanation on the different products, take a look at our FAQ under terminology. You can select the following products:

  • Advertorial
  • Video
  • Press Release
  • Sponsored Articles
  • Newsletter
  • Mention
  • Review
  • Giveaway
  • Link

Compensation*
The compensation is an indication of the price you want for an article. You provide an indication for three different types of products: advertorial, mention and link. We divided these three products, because prices significantly differ. For example, an advertorial is bigger than a mention or link placing. Production will cost you more time and therefore costs more.

Estimated views*
Provide the estimated number of views you expect to generate with your article within the first month after publication. Be honest! When turns out you didn’t live up to your promise, it will affect your credibility. The chance of you getting approved for new campaigns may decrease.

Example advertorial
Add a link to an example advertorial on your website. This way an advertiser can determine if your writing capabilities fit his campaign. Make sure you place a URL that represents your writing style. Don’t forget to adjust the link when the article becomes inactive.

Statistics*

Statistics MediaKit
Statistics MediaKit

Views, sessions and unique visitors a month. In the eyes of an advertiser this is almost as important as a brand fit. Just like estimated views, provided by you in the element marketplace, honesty is key. You will be judged by all data you provide. When your information doesn’t correlate with the actual data, you may complete one assignment, but chances are you won’t get selected for new campaigns.

Demography*

Demography MediaKit
Demography MediaKit

Provide information about the demography of your website. You can find this information in your website’s statistic via google analytics. If you don’t have this information, provide an accurate estimation.
Distinction man/woman and your visitor’s estimated age are some of the filters used by advertisers to find publishers. Sometimes the percentage is difficult to determine, but try to be accurate.

Social Profiles

Social media results are very valuable for advertisers. In case an advertiser wishes that you share your article on your social media channels, your measured likes and followers will be a big part of their selection process. You may select Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+. Your channels’ likes and followers will automatically be fetched by us.

SmartWords

In case you enable SmartWords, LinkPizza’s intelligent script will add monetizable links to your content. Enabling SmartWords doesn’t affect your MediaKit.
