I've been almost 2 years and half in steem, promoting the blockchain almost every single day, everywhere I can.
Of course when we promote steem, steemit is promoted automatically, because when we create content on steem on any application, posts are always created in steemit.
We all agree with the change that we have now and that's 50/50 split of the rewards between content creators and curators. I like this because I see more people and whales and project curating now. But we also see those ads apear in steemit always and we click on them sometimes.
It's not about if the links of our content are placed in priority in search engine, but about that we as content creators also need to earn from the advertisement because the content is ours after all.
For example @threespeak leader @starkerz said in the discord server recently, that they will share in the future the earning from the advertisement with the creators and that's pretty fair. Even though you can say that they are already paying us with good upvotes from their main account and @oracle-d and other partners like @theycallmedan.
So steemit inc also can do the same. If they don't want to pay us from what they earn from ads, they can at least pay us in form of upvotes. Check for example @steemit account and you will see how many stake they have there and the upvote there is over $400. I don't mean such big upvote, but at least symbolically, even if that would be a few dollars upvote. Of course depending on the traffic we bring to the website.
I'm sure that's easy to find that data about how many visits each blog is bringing. I'm sure I will earn from that a bit, because I'm really promoting everywhere I can. Some of us are also doing their best to promote steem, dapps and even steemit.
Thanks again to @paulag because she always bring the best content to steem and she did and still doing a lot to promote steem to the world.
I'm almost sure that steemit inc will do something about that.
You can also watch the video, I was emotional there talking about the topic.
Thanks for reading and watching.
