Pheedo's FeedPowered™ Advertising Platform

Pheedo's FeedPowered™ is an advertising platform for RSS feeds that updates ads based on a site's current content. Ads appear at the end of a post and publishers can control how often the ads appear and how their ads will look. Ads can also appear on a publisher's website to help increase revenues. FeedPowered can work with RSS feeds produced in FeedBurner, MoveableType, Typepad, Wordpress and Expression Engine. Pheedo has ads that pay in both CPM and CPC. The Pheedo Ping APU allows publishers to request an immediate update to their latest feed (e.g., a breaking news event) instead of waiting for an automatic update (which occurs about every 7-1/2 minutes); this ensures that publishers get their feeds read quickly and appropriate ads appear. There is a wide range of ad categories available, topics include arts and literature, automotive, business and finance, computers, games, health and fitness, home and garden, movies and TV, music, sports and recreation, travel and many others.
