blog post Current state of XtGem

You might have noticed a lack of updates and new features lately. That's becaue we're hard at work building the next version of XtGem.
When I started XtGem almost four years ago, it was built as a personal project. I had never imagined it would attract such a huge amount attention. However XtGem has now reached a point at which we have to take a good look what we have been doing so far and decide what goals we want to pursue next.

The new version of XtGem will allow for much easier maintenance of the service and allow for new features to be added with ease. In other words, it's calm before the storm. Once we have the new version up and running, expect a much more steady stream of... [Continue reading]

blog post AdMob, BuzzCity, inMobi, Mojiva, DeckTrade, etc ads on your XtGem site

Active members of XtGem's forum are already aware of this functionality, but I have decided to repost it here for convenience.

First off, register an account on the chosen advertiser's site, then include one of these codes, changing site_id (and zone, in case of mojiva, publisher_id and adspace_id in case of smaato) with your provided account id. You can find these parameters either somewhere on their site while logged in or extract them from one of their provided integration codes (PHP/ASP/etc). [Continue reading]

blog post XtGem has a blog!
It's here, finally

Although it took longer than previously anticipated for me to deploy this thing, I am really pleased with the result. And I believe you all will be too ;)

XtGem has been immersed into social networking for a while now (We are on Twitter, Facebook and XtBoard -- do check 'em out if you haven't yet). And although these are great channels for breaking news and building a community, there was a lack of a central hub to aggregate all that content.

Not only this blog has solved that problem, it will also allow me to produce more written content. I will do my best to constantly... [Continue reading]
