The DSG badge will be a great thing for sites that join us as suddenly there will be millions who could be exposed to the great things the blog is doing.

The move is in contrast to the prevailing model of taking the bloggers away from their sites to write, often for free for sites such as Bleacher Report who pioneered the model now widely copied.
DSG believe that often the blog owners don’t want to hand over their work and just want to grow and monetise their own blog which is often difficult for small scale operations with relatively modest volumes.
Head of Operations at DSG. Matthew Tait has this to say: “We obviously put a lot of work into creating second-to-none communities with great attention to detail in our content. We are looking to help bloggers build something amazing that is very widely read whilst also joining a respected wider network. Too often we see wonderful blogs become tombstones whilst the writer chases publicity by writing for free for various larger websites. Often all the blogger needs is a way to monetise their property and make use of the fringe benefits and publicity of being part of a big network like DSG to give them that lift. We are looking for bloggers who use systems such as Wordpress currently who write about anything Sport related, simple as that. We will then bring that blog to the attention of the world and help promote and monetise the site.”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that every aspect of the blog would benefit especially the social element: “Obviously we have a strong reputation for social media from the Footymad forums to the multi-million liked pages we manage for ourselves and the likes of the PFA. The DSG badge will be a great thing for sites that join us as suddenly there will be millions who could be exposed to the great things the blog is doing. We are already delighted to welcome football blogs such as Sliding Tackle into the DSG family and it will be exciting to see how things develop for the team. We will be looking to welcome more in the near future but if you think you have a golf, tennis or any sport bog that could be monetised or monetised better and exposed to a massive audience then let us know.”
