Where Africa and Technology Collide!

Advertise Your Blog in the AFRICA Tag

1000 tags logoMichael Arrington over at TechCrunch pointed me in the direction of 1000tags.com. Similar to the idea behind the MillionDollarHomePage, it allows you to purchase links/tags to your website. By the way, I’m extremely jealous that Alex Tew thought of this and made a million bucks and not me!

Well, I thought this would be the first (and maybe last) place that WhiteAfrican.com would try and do some advertising. Mostly because by starting the tag “AFRICA”, I thought it would be a huge help to all of the other African bloggers out there, especially my chums at the Kenya Blog Webring. It costs $30 to buy into the AFRICA shared tag – and that’s for life too, no future payments – so not a bad deal at all. The more people who join, the bigger the tag grows.

Africa Tag on 1000tags.com

I hope that my other bloggers of African heritage will join and also pass this news on to everyone else!

UPDATE from 1000Tags.com:

1000tags.com goes in Alexa’s TrafficRank position from nowhere to 4,808 in less than 3 days!


  1. Man, that’s cool. I would do it if I didn’t have to pay for it. They should have a way of linking an article to them and get a free tag or something like that. That would get them some traction for thier tags too.

  2. WHAT an idea!

    Yeah, i feel you on this one, ndugu. First of missing the idea of selling pixels, and now this tagged thing. Grrrrrr…… One day…..one day we’ll find a decent way to make enough mbeca comming in (by itself!)….

  3. It is a great idea, such easy money! How much traffic are you getting from the link to your site though? Is it noticeable?

    Might be an option.

  4. I haven’t gained a ton of incoming traffic from the link yet. Of course, it gains traction the more people sign up on it (bigger word = more links = more traffic).

    We’ll see how it goes over time, but my hope is that even a small number of African bloggers will take notice and take part.

  5. Um, well, I got here through 1000tags for whatever is worth, and I think I’ll be visiting it often. So far I like what I see 🙂

    Kierke, looks like they heard you or something. You can now get free tags. Sorry Hash 🙂

  6. My tag has just been made, South Africa, on 1000tags.com.

    Now we wait …


  7. can’t believe i missed this one! am in!
