Gadget News

Your name?
Vlad

What is your site called?
Half Past Geek

How old is the site?
6 months old

What is the one unique feature of this site?
The manner in which we review our gadgets and the way we pick which ones to report on... our retro games online arcade is kinda nice too, although not all games in it are classics.

Do you make money from this site?
Well, the site certainly doesn't break the bank. At the moment, just a little over what hosting and other upkeep costs.

What is the main revenue stream for this site?
Google adsense, although we tried out other networks such as Chitika (don't go there...)We plan on getting into an agreement with one or more CPM networks, now that traffic has increased somewhat.

What are your plans with this site?
Keep on doing what we do while improving on quality and quantity.

What sites are your biggest competitors?

The closest thing we have to a competitor is Red Ferret - but that's more like a blog.How have you promoted this site in the past?Word of mouth mainly, no serious advertising has been done, since the site is supposed to cover all its own costs.

Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
Perhaps trying to hold one or more contests such as: whoever reports the best/weirdest gadget out there wins a prize (Amazon or ThinkGeek Gift cert. or something).
