<== About Moab Color ==>
iMoab.com is part of the Community Family of sites. The goal of these sites is to promote local web development and community awareness by creating web sites for select communities in the Mountain West.
I began the project by buying domains for interesting towns in the mountains—like Moab, Utah.
Renewing a bucket full of domain names is very expensive; So I decided to buy one central domain (UtahColor) and will develop subdirectories.
Utah has 29 counties. In the site rebuild I decided to focus on counties and not just towns. For example, I replaced the domain PriceHelper.com with the subdomain carbon.utahcolor.com and I made a new subdomain for Emery County.
As Moab is known the world over as one of the most beautiful places on earth. I will keep iMoab.com for Grand County.
My original hope was to fund the community color project. For a variety of reasons, income from affiliate merchants has dropped. Last year I made only $30 for every 100,000 page views—that's a 30¢ CPM.
So, in my redesign, I decided to give local merchants a chance to displace the affiliate ads. I offer a 728x90 placement in the upper fold of the page. The placement can be two lines of text (see above) or a 728x90 image. I will charge $25.00 for 100,000 page views. I invite people and business from Utah to design ads on the advertising page. If I approve the ad, I will put the ad online and send you a PayPal invoice.
