Bloggers in Belgium are taking advantage of a new free product called “free ads” that allows them to offer ads for free on their blogs.
The feature was first announced by the country’s national newspaper, La Libre Belgique, in June and launched this week.
In a blog post, the newspaper’s editor, Christophe Bousquet, said the new feature allows bloggers to provide free content on their sites that can be shared with other people.
“We are here to show that you can make money from blogging with the help of your readers,” Bousquin wrote.
“So what does this mean for you?”
For now, users can choose to share their blog posts with other users by default.
For the blog to be able to make money, Bousquere told Business Insider that the content would need to be made available for free to other users.
“There are no costs for this,” he said.
“The content itself costs nothing.”
For example, you could post a picture of a dog or a dog-shaped cookie and get paid for that post.
However, if you post a photo of a house or a bird, you would not get paid.
Instead, you’ll get paid if your post gets 10,000 hits.
“You could have a blog for one month and get $1,000 from this,” Boulquet told Business Insiders.
“But that would only work if you posted a million times.”
But it’s a relatively small amount of money for a blog.
And if your blog posts are not of interest to readers, there’s not much the site could do.
“A lot of times the content will be about something else that’s not a blog,” Boudreau said.
He added that the company is hoping to add more products to the list, like videos and photos, later.
In the meantime, Boulquere said the company will continue to offer other content, such as a video, in the form of ad-free articles.
He also said that the service is available on mobile devices.
“This is a very interesting concept,” Bosequere wrote.
He said that users should expect to see a lot more ads on the blog.
He noted that the site currently offers 50 ad-friendly articles.
“Free ads are one of the biggest things for WordPress,” Bontu said.
However the feature is still in beta, and there is no word on when it will be available for general users.
The company said it plans to launch the service in the next few weeks.
