Last week Eric and I started to investigate how all of CodeFund's publisher's properties are doing. We found many that are doing great 🎉, but some aren't performing so well. 😢
CodeFund has grown a lot over the past few years. Initially, we allowed almost all websites that added value to the developer and open source communities to join our network. It was essential for us to do this because we believe that all contributions (significant and small) should be recognized as valuable.
However, we have found that this decision has negatively impacted the trust we have with our advertisers, as well as other publishers. We have come to the crossroads where we need to start pruning our network to ensure increased higher quality traffic.
We hate to start the week off with this, but with our transparent culture, it would be weird if we didn't. As always, thanks so much for your support. It means more than you know. =)
Till next time,
Justin & Team CodeFund
