Over the next handful of months we will be removing a total of 12 distribution partners from our dashboard.
The overarching reason for these changes is that we intend to do more with less. We are working on some new deals, but a lot of our time will be spent improving the remaining distribution options so they deliver more value.
The overwhelming majority of views come from three sources: the Blip destination site, YouTube, and our embedded player. Cutting down on distribution partners also allows us to spend more time and energy focusing on those key areas.
Below is our current schedule for distribution removal. We will be updating this page if any dates change:
January 31, 2012
February 28, 2012
April 3, 2012
May 1, 2012
You can view your traffic sources on the dashboard’s stats page to get a sense of how these change might impact your view counts. Of these partners, only Blinx, VodPod, MeFeedia run Blip advertising.
By focusing our distribution efforts, we can ensure that the distribution points we build and maintain are part of strong experiences that enhance your content, help you build an audience, and contribute to revenue generation.
If you have additional questions, we’ve posted a separate FAQ article. We figured there might be one or two other things our users would want to know.
