FAQ – Advertisers

Monetization

How can I monetize my website with Solid Opinion?

You have two options. The first option is to install our Promoted Comment widget and start making money from comments without putting more ads on pages. The second option is to install the Solid Opinion fully functional commenting solution including the ad module. Solid Opinion is a free commenting service and operates a small banner in lieu of a license fee. Revenues generated from the banner are split equally with the publisher at the end of each month along with revenues generated by promoted comments. A current version of SolidOpinion’s terms and conditions is available here: http://solidopinion.com/terms

Implementation

Where does SolidOpinion sit on my page?

Generally people put us under the content on their pages. This means we’re often below articles, videos, or other areas of engagement. We’re also at home in sidebars, dropdowns, and pop-out windows.

How much space does SolidOpinion take up?

SolidOpinion can occupy as much or as little space as needed and dynamically sizes to fit the area in which it’s placed. The promoted comments solution minimizes to less than a hundred pixels when unpopulated and the text entry and signup area

How does SolidOpinion influence my site’s load times?

SolidOpinion built and hosted entirely in the cloud independently of the publisher’s site, so it creates little to no drag on page load times.
