PayPerPost Rejection

As I mentioned a couple days back, I applied to be part of the PayPerPost community. I figured that this was a great way to get started with a bit of monetization, not to mention the fact that I also wanted to see what the service is all about. Before you move on here, you may want to check that post out at

Well, despite being confident that my blog would be accepted, I received an email rejection this morning. I was a bit surprised that it took so long to hear back, but I guess with the holiday it was not so bad.

Fortunately, my blog did not get rejected because of the content or anything along those lines. Instead, it appears that they turned me down because I do not have an “archives” link. This just goes to show you that reading the rules is a very important step before doing anything online. Although I thought that I knew what I was doing, I somehow missed out on this detail.

Here is the email that I received from PayPerPost:

I was unable to find a link to your archives. Please make sure that it is in plain site and that your archives list chronologically, not categorically. Also, the archives cannot be just ‘previous pages.’ For example, it should be set up to where I could find a post on Sept. 30th very quickly. Please re-submit when this requirement has been met. In the meantime, feel free to use PPP Direct and Affiliate tools while you work on meeting the requirements of our Marketplace!

My guess is that they require an archives page so that they can easily find PayPerPost content among the rest of the posts; which makes sense to me.

As you can imagine, this is not going to set me back too much. I will add the archives widget to my sidebar, and then resubmit my blog today. Initially, I was not sure if simply adding the archives widget would be acceptable, but after seeing several other PayPerPost blogs, this seems to be just fine.

Hopefully I will be approved by sometime early next week. I will let you know when I hear something!
