NUFFNANG

Hello there! Welcome to Nuffnang :) Being a Nuffnanger is much more than earning while you blog; you’re now a part of a Malaysia’s largest blogging community! There are lots of contests and events exclusively for Nuffnangers which you can now participate in, but more on that later. Let’s start off with the basics – placing Nuffnang ads on your blog. Just follow the three simple steps below:

1.Complete the blogger bio
Please take a few minutes to complete the Blogger Bio, and tell us a little about yourself. This will help us know you better, and allow us to recommend you for sponsored posts.

2.Add your blog(s) to the Blog Manager
After you have completed your blogger profile, register your blog(s) on the Nuffnang network using the Blog Manager. Once you have added your blog to the Blog Manager, you will be prompted to fill in a survey for that blog. This survey is very important as it allows us to target ads for your blog.

3.Add Nuffnang ad units to your blog
Click on the "Add Ads" icon on your dashboard. Here you will find the codes to add ad units to your blog.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When do I start earning from the ads on my blog?
Bloggers earn when they serve paid ads from our advertisers. There are generally 2 types of paid ads: CPC (Cost Per Click) and mCPM (Metered Cost Per Impression).

CPC ads show on all blogs on the Nuffnang network which have "Show Global CPC Ads" selected under their Blog Preferences in the Blog Manager, and are not currently serving any mCPM ads. Payment is based on the number of unique clicks on the CPC ad.

mCPM (Metered Cost Per Impression) campaigns are when your blog is selected for a banner campaign. See below for how you can get selected for these campaigns. No clicks are required to earn from mCPM ads, however having high CTR (click through ratio) may grant you bonus earnings.

If you wish to earn from CPC ads while waiting for mCPM ads to be assigned to your blog, make sure you have "Show Global CPC Ads" chosen for your Ads Preference in the Blog Manager!

Once you've accumulated more than RM 50, you can cash out your earnings, and we will send you a cheque.

For more information about CPC and mCPM ads, please read the full FAQ here, or write in to our helpdesk here.

How do I get selected for ad campaigns? ***yang nie yang paling penting haku ghaser***There are a few factors considered when deciding ad assignments:

1.Demographics of blog readers
Keep your blog surveys up-to-date, as they determine how your blog is targeted for advertisers.

2.Desirability of ad placement
Advertisers spend a lot of money on banners, and prefer to have their ads in prominent locations.
***1.A Skyscraper ad unit is supposed to be the first element of the sidebar and not anywhere else.
***2.The Leaderboard should be the first element a visitor sees, and
***3.The Large Rectangle should come right after your first blog post.

Should your blog's ad units not be located at these optimal placements, it could severely affect the number of advertisers who choose your blog.
3.Availability of ad units
Advertisers split their budget evenly across our three ad units. If your blog serves all three, you'll increase your chances of getting campaigns.

4.Membership exclusivity
Advertisers tend to advertise more on Glitterati Nuffnangers' blogs as part of our reward program for our most loyal bloggers. Ordinary members still receive campaigns but in lower numbers.

5.Period of membership
It takes about 30 days for our system to monitor your traffic for consistency before we can propose your blog for any campaigns. Please be patient, you'll soon receive ad campaigns if all your ad spaces are optimized.

I've submitted a cashout request! When will my cheque arrive?

As stated in our payment policy, Nuffnang processes cashout requests for Glitterati members 30 days after every end of the month from their cashout request date (60 days for Ordinary members). Cheques will be compiled and sent to the bank for processing before delivery to your registered address. The processing takes an additional two weeks. If you were a Glitterati member and cashed out any day in August, your cheque would be processed at the end of September and should reach you by the second week of October.

If you do not receive your cheque within the time frame mentioned, kindly write in to our helpdesk.

We know you probably have a few more questions in mind; why don't you head over to our FAQ section for more information?

DO'S AND DON'TS ***tapi yang nie lagikkk penting la...***

Lastly, a few do's and don'ts to help you out and make blogging more fun than ever:

Do :

Get updates via the Nuffnang blog, Facebook and Twitter! We have lots of contests, movie screenings and awesome promotions exclusively for Nuffnangers and we throw great parties too, so keep your eyes peeled for announcements there.
Be a part of Innit, Nuffnang's very own blog aggregator! Innit is available to all Glitterati Nuffnangers, and there you can share topics you find interesting with your fellow Nuffnangers, and read interesting articles from them as well. It's a great place to make friends! :)

Don't :

There's really only one big "don't" when it comes to Nuffnang, and that would be to commit click fraud. Click fraud is defined as manipulating the number of clicks on ads, e.g. by clicking repeatedly on them, resetting your IP, or encouraging others to do so. While you're more than welcome to click on your own ads if you're genuinely interested in the products/services offered, manipulating your click count is a breach of Nuffnang's terms of service.

Bloggers who commit click fraud will have their earnings revoked, or even banned for repeat offenders. This is how we feel when we see click fraud occurring - :( :( :( We're not happy when we have to ban bloggers or revoke their earnings because of click fraud, so play nice, okay?

That's all from us about getting started with Nuffnang! If you have any questions, you can always drop us a message via our helpdesk – we always answer all your questions within 48 hours except on weekends and public holidays.
