I found some books about selling books and guerrilla marketing on Amazon that have really good reviews, so I'm going to check them out and see if we can use them for Devtome. I will share any useful information here. I should have the books within the week.

Still writing the history book Smiley And reading. I made an even bigger reading list now (I have almost 600 books to buy now), and I still have 29 of these 33 books to read. Plus the 4 I got and read before these came.

i wonder what sort of level of traffic the ad networks are looking for, generally. any idea, ballpark range?

For a single topic site, even a thousand views per month is enough. I won't know how much they need for a general wiki until we get a network. They didn't actually look at the site much, we got mostly boilerplate rejection letters. One network, which we didn't apply for, state on their website that they only look at you if you have 500,000 views/month. Most networks don't say how many page views they require, but the more you have the more interested they'll be in your site. Devtome popularity is volatile, in the last month it had around 80,000 views. In a few months when we apply again, I hope we'll be around 150,000 views/month, and hopefully that'll be enough to get a network.

This is truly AWESOME news because I live in a state that is not supported by the Amazon affiliate program, as in I can't be an affiliate on my own.  I went ahead and submitted my user ID.

Thanks, the more writers sign up, the more stuff we'll sell, which gives us a higher commission percentage.

I have a question about it.  Amazon allows you to link to specific products or specific types of products.  So for example, if I was writing a book review on my blog, I could also include a link to that specific book in the post.  I would like to know if this could become possible in this system, where there is a way that I could submit an amazon page I want to promote and then have someone create a unique affiliate link to that page for me.  At this point it sounds like it would be a lot of work for someone, or it would require allowing all of us to log into the account, neither of which seems like a good idea.

You don't have to log into an Amazon account to make a link. The Amazon admin logs into the devtome account to get a tag for whoever lists one on the Amazon page:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=devtome_amazon_associate

The tracking id is devtome-your_name-20. You use your tag in your link, as described at:
https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/t5/a16

The format is amazon home page link, "/dp/", Amazon Standard Item Number (ASIN), "/?tag=", tracking ID, and link text. For books the ASIN is the same as the 10 digit International Standard Book Number (ISBN). For example, for the Great Gatsby, the ASIN (0743273567) is in the link:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0743273567

and it is also listed on the page:
ISBN-10: 0743273567

for wiser, the wiki format link would be:
[http://www.amazon.com/dp/0743273567/?tag=devtome-wiser-20 Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald]

To link to another book, paste the 10 digit ISBN of the other book into the ISBN part of the link address and change the link text.

If we got more into video games and videos, it would be easier to get accepted by an ad network.
Just BTW, that is what they are looking for

I know some people that run networks, they hang out on YouTube forums.

Oh, maybe. Idk exactly.

Nice. Good luck with writing Smiley I would order a book or two, for when you get writers block. Reading inspires ideas. Smiley

I just ordered some books that are really going to help us out

Over 30 marketing tips for helping a company go international
Over 100 tips for social media
A book specifically about how to get people to want to read your books, which can defintely be applied to articles and websites
One about integrating a business to society
And I'm reading the Art of War right now (Sun Tzu)


So this article ( http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=devcoin_advertising_campaign ) will be getting A LOT better soon Smiley

I think I recall someone mentioning earlier that it was 109,300. Can anyone confirm? Also, since this is my first round I still wasn't sure how it works -- do shares go out at the end of next round? Like, this round ends at 109,300, next round ends at X -- we get paid for this round at X? Or maybe I understood it wrong and there isn't actually one round lag.  Huh

I think the new exchange mcxnow.com offers a bright future for Devcoin... it recently has and an injection of liquidity that is looking for a place to stay other than bitcoin. We know that when whales come in they would rather actively invest by trading. There are a handful of coins on there which are traded and dvc has benefited from the increased volume by hitting up to 100 satoishi recently! The volume was over 100 million dvc a few days in a row. We havent seen that on vircurex forever! Anyways I've been hearing from the chat mods and other users on the site that they are looking to replace devcoin with namecoin and we should all let our voices be heard if that is true. I really think that the exchange offers the light for dvc and we should try to fight to keep it alive. With it growing so fast I wouldn't be surprised if its labelled as 'the alt coin marketplace' and with big money coming in from stock exchanges (equity) I would see a big future for any alts on there.

His email is mcxnow.exchange@gmail.com I believe that is realsolid's email.

does anyone know the answer to this? i was just starting to look into writing for devtome. i am too late to get anything in for this round. but i cant figure out how the payouts work. i was looking at some payout addresses and it looks like maybe writers get paid gradually through the next round as blocks are generated?

RS (the owner of mcxnow) has stated that DVC is already in the process of being removed. He just wants to "transition it out" and is dropping it soon. I think we're a bit too far for saving it at this point, although if DVC gains momentum in the future it's a possibility.

I sent off a note to RS about this.  I've noticed people trashing Devcoins in the chat window but I guess I never saw anything that indicated they might actually take it off the platform.  And lately there's been a lot of movement in Devcoin, so I suspect they might already be rethinking this idea, if it ever was a serious one.  I don't see why they can't just add Namecoin without removing anything else anyway.  But it can definitely not hurt to write in and say that we love having Devcoins there Smiley

That really STINKS!

EDIT:  Right now there are 11,092 accounts, which means that the number of users who are on the site to buy or sell Devcoins could be a significant percentage of that.  There probably is no better time to reach out to RS and tell him why you're there.  Even those who don't have an account can reach out.  If what Jag says is correct about mcxNOW being a significant reason for the recent increase in value in DVC, then that benefit has been felt by non account holders too.

So... did Cryptsy drop Devcoins?  I'm not finding them listed there.  I've never had an account there.  Is Vircurex really going to be the only place to buy/sell DVCs now?

Devcoin is trading on Cryptsy for LTC Smiley

They will most likely upgrade it to a BTC market when DVC picks up a little more.

Also as far as I know mcxNOW is a big supporter of Devcoin.

OK, I hadn't thought to look for non BTC combinations.  Good to know.  If I want to use LTC as an intermediary, that might work.  Then again, sounds like it's back to Vircurex I go...

Also as far as I know mcxNOW is a big supporter of Devcoin.

Not anymore.  RS can't wait to get rid of them  Cry

Not sure when that will actually happen.  You should write him and tell him you like Devcoins.  Maybe you'll have better luck than I did.

Last I heard from RS (last night), he said it will be ~4 weeks from now when it's fully removed. Presumably he'll stop trading prior to that to let things settle down and ensure everyone can withdraw.

Was any reason mentioned for disliking Devcoins? It's quite strange given how many useless altcoins there are out there. There's such a plethora of useless coins which are hardly worthwhile even trading. To underscore this point, there's even a new coin 'proving' how worthless many of them are called "Shitcoin":

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=307419.0

Anyway, hopefully if DVC disappears from one exchange, it pops up on another and really, exchanges are opening and closing at such rate that we should just look at this as a bump on the road. As DVC grows in stability and usage over time, it will become more apparent that DVC is not a 'here today, gone tomorrow' coin like some others out there.

He said that it's because it is "too much maintenance" (I presume what he means is that the cost of keeping it up on the server and whatnot outweighs the fees that are earned from the trading).

The DVC volume on mcxNOW has been pretty low until the last few days.
