500 Words: Grand

I’ve been thinking about Joel Comm’s “500 Words” service for awhile now, and I’m going to give a try. I’ll keep you updated on how it goes.

I bought “Grand”. Just one quirk: after previewing the ad, clicking the “Buy” button brings up the error that I have to agree to the terms — even though I already checked that box previously. This is the “Thank You” page:

Thanks Elliot Lee!

Your keyword Grand, has been purchased and paid for via PayPal for a total cost of $50. Once the payment is verified via PayPal your word will go active, in most cases almost immediately. If you would like to purchase another word please feel free to do so at the main page.

Sure enough, it was active immediately. So Joel doesn’t manually approve them — meaning that any URL can be linked. If you found this post from 500 Words, please leave a comment.

    I found this through 500 words, was curious to see who might have advertised there. Did you see any traffic?
