ReviewMe is a new service catering to blog publishers and advertisers that launched tonight. ReviewMe is a service that takes the power of blogs to heart. Any blogger can become a member on the site and list their blog. ReviewMe automatically checks a number of factors such as Technorati rank, Alexa rank and number of subscribers to come up with a price for advertisers.
Once your site has been listed, it can be discovered by advertisers wishing to pay you to write a review of their product or service. Personally I think the concept is a little cheesy - paying for blog reviews, but it will woo many bloggers on the lookout for extra income.
I signed up for ReviewMe and am curious to see what types of companies are interested in having me write a review for their service. Hopefully things are relevant to this blog's content - you won't ever see me blogging about random, one-off or spammy things. ReviewMe isn't the first website to offer such a service. PayPerPost caused quite a ruckus the past few weeks with their interesting business model. Of course, ReviewMe has a few rules set in place so that people don't "game" the system. For example, each review must be at least 200 words. Considering most of my reviews are 500+ words, I don't think that will be a problem.
ReviewMe is currently offering 25,000 (not to one person) to bloggers who review the actual ReviewMe site and service so go ahead, make an account and check it out.
Disclosure: I will be receiving 125 for this post.
