PS3 Attitude joins the Shakefire.com Network; gains 2 million readers…
We are incredibly pleased and proud to announce today that PS3 Attitude has joined the Shakefire.com network.
Shakefire.com is a multimedia consumer news and reviews website that enjoys over 2 million readers a month. The deal will see PS3 Attitude and Shakefire.com share traffic and original content with each other, helping to increase the popularity of all sites in the network.
But what does that mean for you, our dedicated and much-loved readers?
This marks an incredible day in the life of PS3 Attitude, with this new collaboration providing us an opportunity to massively increase our exposure and advertising revenue for the benefit of the charities we support.
PS3 Attitude’s regular visitors will be pleased to hear that there will be no changes to the editorial policies, staff or the community, which means that our PlayStation 3 news site will continue to provide our trademark scoreless reviews and a balanced view on the PlayStation 3 marketplace.
“This move offers a unique opportunity for us to expand our coverage of video game reviews and articles whilst making a real difference to PS3 Attitude’s charity fund by boosting their readership to new levels. We’re really excited about being able to offer PS3 reviews from a site that has a reputation for creating thought-provoking content, and even more pleased that we are in a position to positively affect the fortunes of such a great cause.” – Peter Oberth of Shakefire.com.
The deal does not alter the ownership or running of either site. PS3 Attitude remains a privately funded venture that is run by a team of dedicated volunteers across Europe and the USA, a structure that ensures that none of the revenue generated through advertising and donations is used for administration or website hosting.
This is a great moment in the history of PS3 Attitude. After three years of increasing our readership and community through organic growth and word-of-mouth, Shakefire.com has given us the kind of boost you normally only read about elsewhere. Our charity fund will benefit hugely from this partnership, and our hard-working volunteers will find their articles and reviews being read by a much wider audience, a prospect we are all excited about.
You’d think an announcement of this magnitude would be enough for one day, and you’re right. So, come back in a few days when we’ve got another blockbuster announcement for you to get your teeth around.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us reach our milestone of 3,000 followers on Twitter (@PS3Attitude), which was the catalyst for releasing this news.
