Updates to The Solo Ads Directory

3 August 2023: We're Back!

After a two year hiatus since the site was established I've made a few updates:

  • I've removed the social media icon links from the site. I wasn't particularly active on Twitter, but since Elon took over my feed has consistently been full of people selling class A drugs. This isn't a site I want my own particular brands to be associated with. I still use Facebook although not for business purposes. None of my friends ever seem to post that much, but Facebook Groups are really good if you want to communicate with people who share your interests. Finally I pretty much abandoned my Niche Laboratory Youtube channel. It did get some traffic but it's a competitive niche and I don't think I was really adding anything new. I am still active on Youtube but I am mostly focussed on my much more successful coding channel.
  • I have processed the backlog of new solo ad seller submissions. Five new sellers have been added to the directory. Please do submit your own solo ad seller listing and I'll add it to the site as soon as possible.
  • The site is now running on .NET Core 7. About the only strange thing I noticed is some of the pages no longer work under the Sellers Controller, so I've moved them into the Home Controller. The links to these pages have been changed accordingly.

3 August 2021: New Seller Listings Pages... And More

There's a new page that lists the Top Sellers on The Solo Ads Directory. This lists the sellers that have received the most page views on the site. In time other metrics will be incorporated into the algorithm to allow you to choose the very best solo ad providers.

There's also a page to show the Latest Sellers added to the directory.

Other updates:

  • Seller listings pages now link to the page for each specific niche the ad seller sells ad spots for.
  • There's now a Latest News page that displays the latest blog posts relating to making money from solo ads.
  • There's also a search facility on the site. This will become a lot more useful as the number of solo ads vendors listed in the directory increases.
  • I've added a solo ads buying tips page. As I find more about the industry I'll braindump my findings here.
  • The site's layout has had a bit of a cleanup.
  • I've added a Longest Established Sellers page which lists sellers according to how long they've been in business. This data is derived from their website WhoIs data.
  • There's a new features section which will contain articles relating to specific aspects of solo ads buying. The first feature is an overview of buying cryptocurrency solo ads.

25 July 2021: Directory Now Available

There is now a basic solo ads seller directory on the site.

Other enhancements:

  • Improve your knowledge of solo ads - seller blog posts now appear if their site has a blog post feed.
  • Seller's website domain registration information is now displayed in listings. This is automatically retrieved from the publically available whois information. It can be used to show you when a solo ad seller first registered their website and how long they've been running it for. Be wary of websites that have just popped up in 2024 and are set to expire in one or two years!
  • There's now a top menu for the main solo ad niches we cover. Note that the majority of solo ad vendors are active in the make money online/business opportunities niches - there are far fewer vendors in the pets, weight loss, health, relationships and other niches.
  • Niche details pages now show niche competition and popularity. For solo ads a higher competition score is generally a good thing, as it means there are plenty of buyers in that niche. Popularity is data derived from my suite of SEO tools and reflects how many bloggers and internet marketing people are active in a particular niche. Again a higher score here is generally good if you want to run solo ads, but it's not such good news if you want to try and establish a new blog in that niche.

22 July 2021: The Solo Ads Directory is Open For Business

Hi everybody!

I am pleased to announce that TheSoloAdsDirectory.Com is now live. There's not too much here yet but I have some amazing plans for this place.
