- Apr 30, 2007
The service lets WordPress bloggers take their blogs mobile and then start to monetise their content from advertising revenue.
WordPress is a open source blogging tool used by thousands of blogs including TechCrunch, MobileCrunch, Venturebeat and Schobelizer.
Andy Moore of Web2Text, a dotmobi certified mobile web developer, has built a plug-in to enable WordPress bloggers to extend their reach by publishing for mobile phones.
The WordPress plug-in integrates AdMob code that gives bloggers the option to include ads in their posts.
Russell Buckley, Managing Director, AdMob Europe, said: "This is an exciting development for the blogging community. Bloggers around the world can now take advantage of a new plug-in and generate revenues from their content straightway. There's no need to dabble with code either,"
More than one hundred fifty WordPress bloggers have been beta-testing the new plug-in. The tool makes it easy for bloggers to launch a mobile presence, extending the reach of content to a broad array of mobile phones. It also provides configuration of pages leveraging .mobi and W3C standards and automatic insertion of AdMob ads at the option of the blog owner.
Andy Moore, Director, Web2Text, added: “This plug-in lets bloggers adhere to standards without having extra knowledge or getting their hands dirty in any code. It's easy to publish to mobile in a matter of seconds."
Using the WordPress plug-in, bloggers can configure the appearance of mobile internet blog pages and choose to turn on advertising and manage the ads that run on their blog
Users also get real-time reports on click-through statistics, traffic and earnings.
