TravelMob is travel site meets Evite. It lets you create a trip homepage, invite people, manage RSVPs, upload important files, create a photo gallery, see top tours for your destination, and plan via message board. There's a Facebook-style newsfeed that shows what everyone on your trip's doing.
I love when blogs publish hard numbers... on anything really. New data from PubMatic on cost per thousand (CPM) rates. Here's the data via TechCrunch
Online ad-optimizing service PubMatic is now publishing an AdPrice Index
with the average rates collected for remnant ads by 3,000 Web
publishers. These are the ads that sites place from the big ad networks
when they cannot sell the inventory themselves at normally higher
rates. Small sites (those with less than one million page views per
month) command nearly three times as much per ad as large sites (those
with more than 100 million page views per month): an effective CPM
(cost per thousand) of $1.18 versus $0.38. The effective CPM across
sites of all sizes is $0.49. All of these figures are for March, 2008.
Ad rates are also growing faster for small sites, up 18 percent since
January versus 12 percent growth overall.
The low average rates for large sites reflects the poor returns on
social networks, entertainment, and gaming sites. Effective CPMs for
social networks are amongthe lowest at $0.37 in March. But there is
hope, that was up 69 percent from $0.22 in January.
