On June 12, the Federal Government launched a website where Nigerians can register for the Federal Government’s employment programme. In just 8 days that site has become the 72nd most popular site on Alexa.com’s Nigeria rankings. In fact, on the first day of its existence, the site had 400,000 registrations.

Anyone who owns a blog knows how much Google Adsense and other advertisers would pay him if he had that amount of traffic.

Npower.gov.ng has already gotten to a place it took Linda Ikeji Blog years to get to, and all within a few days.

I think the government should use this massive traffic on their site to sell ads. You may say that jobseeker traffic is relatively unatractive due to the fact of their reduced spending power as a result of unemployment, but I believe anyone who can afford to get on the internet to search for jobs has considerable spending power.

And besides, who says sizable numbers of these job seekers would not become employed tomorow? Who says a sizable number of them would not become entrepreneurs tomorow?

I think the revenues generated from selling ads on Npower.gov.ng should be used mainly to help fund the salaries of those applicants FG eventually employs. It can be just like a beauty peageant is funded. You sell forms to many, and out of that you get money for the prizes and a lot of profit for your self.

U think unemployed Nigerian youths are interested in ads? U try. Most people will bypass the ads for whatever made them visit it in the first place.

It will also give the opposition a good chance to nag at the FG a million times for intending to make money by taking advantage of innocent Nigerians. U self go change your orientation when pdp feast on such news.

To think all a lot of those who visited the site has considerable spending power is fallacious. I doubt if u know how broke most who visit that site daily are. Someone called me to register for him during the period the site crashed. He said he has spent all he had with him at the cafe, he wouldn't mind if I keep helping him to try it on phone. He doesn't have an a smart phone if u care to know.

Nigerians are suffering my guy.

I don't think this would generate revenue as much as you anticipate. The traffic was expected considering the unemployment rate in Nigeria. People won't have reason to visit the site that often after the recruitment process is completed.

The mod that brought these thread to front page must be high with codeine. The unemployed Nigerians that applied are poor making it very difficult to convert them to a lead, the percentage of Click through rate to lead will be like 99.9% to 0.01% which is bad for advertisers even with cheap products that gives out incentives.
The traffics is poor as know cash to spend and useless to advertisers, so why invest your money and time in designing catchy ads and paying for ads space only to end up with a negative ROI.
The traffics of that site will soon drop to almost zero in few days time.

That site is a joke...the idiots who designed it should be arrested and tried by EFCC and subsequent transferred to the ICC. The site is 90% of the time offline...I guess they bought a 1gb bandwidth for the site...op no serious organisation will advertise with them

I beg to disagree OP. The site was designed for a set of people, the unemployed.

The fact is that most of the people (if not all) that will visit the site are unemployed people and I really don't think they will find any value in the ads.

Just my thought

Must be my brother from the east.

There's a reason some site carries the TLD .gov, it is mainly not for profit. Apart from that, imagine a candidate logging in to apply and the next thing he sees beside the apply button is "Find Russian Girlfriend Today", I sure you will be the first to blast the Nigerian government
