What is Adeyoh.com?

Adeyoh is a Fan-sponsored web publishing community, which was designed to further democratize the internet by eliminating its dependence upon corporate sponsorships

With a “v” on the end of our name, you have the Cherokee word for “revolution”, “adeyohv”.


Here, you can:

Publish Links to Your Web Content – Publish your links within communities they’ll be appreciated in to find those who’ll vote on, share, and sponsor your links. Your fans can actually keep an eye on the stats when they share your link and then go on to sponsor it for a dollar, in exchange for seeing their name posted beneath your link for a certain number of impressions. And if your link has the most sponsorships of all the links in the community you published it in for the month, you and your content are given a spot in our yearly event called the Adeyoh Expo (link to “Adeyoh Expo” page). Your fans can also “vote” for your links if they think they’re cool, and if your link gets the highest vote, it gets the top spot in the community you published, and in your fan’s Adeyoh widgets(link to “Build Widgets and Embed Them Anywhere” paragraph down the page).


Earn Money – On Adeyoh, if you are User A, and you share a link with B, and B shares with C, and C with D, and D with E, the owner of that link will give you 10% of B through E’s sponsorship. And, of course, when a link that belongs to you gets sponsored, you keep 50% every time because sponsors are paying you to display their username and avatar as a sponsor beneath your link; we just take care of all the technical stuff. All earnings on Adeyoh can be cashed out, or used to sponsor other Links.


Sponsor Your Favorite Links – When you see a link to web content you like and think the world should hear about it, you can share it and then sponsor it for a dollar. By doing this, we help the web content most supported and shared by the people climb to the top in a way that actually makes a difference, not only in the lives of those who’ve created it, but also for those of you who spread the word.


Build Widgets and Embed Them Anywhere – Build a widget and fill it with links that are relevant to your web content, or links that you just think are cool. You can then embed it on your blog, website, or social network profile. When people see your widget, they can “vote” for the links they think are cool to get them to the top spot. Or, when someone clicks on one of the links in your widget and goes on to sponsor it, you will be compensated as though you shared that link with that person.


Create a Profile – From your profile you can post your personal or company info, moderate a forum, connect with likeminded, post your social networking info, and share with the world all the links that you’ve published, voted on, and sponsored.


Join and Get Active in Our Communities – We have more than twenty five interest-based communities where you’ll find content relevant to you. As a member of a community, you can publish your content and events where they’ll be appreciated, and attract your fan sponsors. You can also form groups within the communities to come together around certain content or for anything else. If you really believe in what’s happening within a community, you can sponsor the community itself, and we’ll post your profile avatar in the “community sponsors” column.



Why should I use Adeyoh?

If you own web content that people will share, your fans need more ways to contribute to your success, in a way that adds value to their experience with you on the web and gets them known for their support. If you’re connected to web 2.0 and sharing web content daily, do the same from here in a way that can get profitable. If you have a cause that can win supporters, build a website and your first Adeyoh Campaign and we’ll get it roaring like nothing else. If you’re just looking to participate in a real web media revolution, this is the place to be.


Why would I sponsor a link that doesn’t belong to me?

It wouldn’t be a great idea to sponsor a link to content that you didn’t believe in. Our platform is designed to make every dollar count, so when you s ponsor a link, it makes a big difference for the publishe r of that content, and when done right, for you too. You are advised to sponsor only the content that spreads through your interest group, so that when you do actually sponsor something, you can get your money back, and actually make money with your sponsorship. Also, if you’re looking for exposure, sponsoring a link to content that you think is cool is a great way of getting it.



What about FTC regulations and disclosure?

Any content shared from our platform will be clearly stated as sponsored by whoever shares it, making us in compliance with FTC regulations that state: "When there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product [“product” being the link shared from Adeyoh*] which might materially affect the weight or credibility of the endorsement (i.e., the connection is not reasonably expected by the audience) such connection must be fully disclosed."   * added.
Project Hosting on Google Code FAQ

Other FAQs:




Getting Started

What's the new project-hosting service on Google Code?

Our new hosting service offers a collaborative development environment that includes:

  • Project workspaces with simple membership controls
  • Version control via Subversion
  • Source code browsing and reviews
  • Issue tracking
  • Wiki pages
  • Downloads
  • Mailing lists at groups.google.com


Who's the service for?

All open source developers. If you plan to start an open source project, we encourage you to create a project on Google Code.

Why is Google offering to host open source projects?

One of our goals is to encourage healthy, productive open source communities. Developers can always benefit from more choices in project hosting.

Is hosting on Google Code available internationally?

For now, project hosting is available only in English. Open source projects can be created by developers from all countries, with a few small exceptions.

Will Google Code be localized into my language?

We plan to localize Google Code as it matures.

Is Google Code's implementation itself open source?

As with most project-hosting sites, our underlying technology is a mixture of open source and proprietary code. For example, the issue tracker is entirely written by Google, but the version-control service is based on Subversion, a popular open source tool.

Where's the documentation for the project-hosting service?

Much of it's right here in this FAQ. Also, most project and issue tracker pages contain self-documenting fields that describe the purpose of the page. For documentation on how to use a Subversion client, just visit the Subversion project.

How is this project-hosting service related to Summer of Code?

Both are part of our larger initiative to support and encourage the development of open source software. Google Summer of Code projects may also be hosted on Google Code, should the student or mentor so wish.

Hosting Your Open Source Project on Google Code

Why would I want to host my open source project on Google Code?

Our project-hosting service is simple, fast, reliable, and scalable, so that you can focus on your own open source development.

Why would I not want to host my open source project on Google Code?

Google Code will have lots of key features at launch, but we may not have all features you want or need for your project. Rather than try to offer every possible feature, we have focused on doing the most important things really well. More features will be added over time, but only when they are ready. However, we will not offer the following any time soon: shell accounts, build farm, private projects, nested projects, or multiple alternatives for each type of hosted tool.

Are there any restrictions on who can use the site?

Just a couple. You'll need to be in a country where Google is able to conduct business, and your project needs to be open source.

Do I need to have a Gmail account to start a project?

No, a Gmail account is no longer required to create a project, though you will need a Google Account. If you don't have a Google Account already, you can create one now.

Do I need to have a Gmail account to participate in a project?

No authentication is required to browse project pages or issues, or to check out source code. T o create or comment on an issue, though, you'll need to be logged in to your Google Account. To manage issue metadata or commit to a project's Subversion repository, you'll need to be logged in to your Google Account and have either an owner or a committer role.

Are you going to put ads on my project page?

No. Ads aren't part of Google Code at this time.

Can I put ads on my project's pages?

This may be an option in the future, but, no, not for now.

How long does it take for my project to be approved for hosting?

As soon as you create a project, it's available for use.

Can I use Google Code to host projects that aren't open source?

Nope. Open source projects only.

Why open source projects only?

Most proprietary software projects have funding, and can therefore afford to pay for commercially offered development tools and environments. The goal of hosting on Google Code is to promote healthy open source development by offering hosted tools that most open source projects can't afford.

What should I do if somebody took my project's name?

We rely on the goodwill of open source participants to ensure they are the rightful owner or creator of a project name. If you feel that someone has intentionally created a project that uses your existing project's name, first contact the owners of the project and discuss the matter directly with them. If after engaging the owners of the project you are not able to come to a resolution, please contact us via our Google Group or email google-code-hosting@googlegroups.com directly to discuss the situation.

How do I contact the owners of an existing project?

First, look for a project mailing list on the project's home page, and if one exists, use that. If the project does not have a mailing list, then try contacting the project owners (also listed on the project's home page) directly. If their full usernames are shown, you can email them at USERNAME@gmail.com. Usernames of the form "usern..." can be revealed by solving a CAPTCHA.

How do I create a project?

A good project starts with a good idea: one that addresses a real need, is feasible and well-scoped, and isn't well covered by existing open source projects. (Before you create a new project, we suggest that you try searching for existing projects on this site and elsewhere on the web. You can often get further faster by helping out with an existing project than by starting one from scratch.)

If you're ready to start your own project, you'll need to write a description of it and give it a good name. The project name will have to have more than 2 characters and must be lower case. Then, sign in using a Google account, enter that information into the Create a project page, and you're done. Congrats. You've got a brand-new project on Google Code.

How do I join a project?

One of the project owners must use the project administration page to add your Google account email address to the project.

Most projects have mailing lists that the developers use to discuss the project. To become a developer, first participate on the mailing list by showing your interest in the project and your ability to help the project. Then, ask the project owners to make you a member of the project.

Hosted Tools

Why do you only offer a small set of licenses?

The open source community has been flooded with lots of nearly identical licenses. We'd like to see projects standardize on the most popular, time-tested ones. The selected licenses offer diversity to meet most developer needs.

How can I select a license other than the ones provided?

At this time, we offer only the licenses listed.

How can I choose two licenses for my dual-licensed project?

At this time, we offer single licenses only.

Can I host code that I have placed in the public domain?

The concept of "public domain" is actually a lot more complicated than most people realize. Holding copyright and using a (permissive) licence is almost always the right choice. In general, we do not offer to host projects with source code in the public domain. However, if you can only release your code as public domain, and you are sure that you can legally do so, please enter an issue for us to review your request and create the project for you.

Is my data safe?

Yes. Your data is hosted on Google's infrastructure in Google's datacenters, ensuring a high level of reliability and redundancy.

How do I get a copy of my data?

At this time, there aren't any import or export features. But look for them as the service matures.

How do I create web pages for my project?

You can use Google Sites to create web pages, and then create a link to them from your project's front page. Google Docs is another great way to collaboratively create documents and publish them on the web. Or, link from your project to any existing web pages.

Can I use another hosting service for parts of my project?

Yes. If Google Code doesn't have all the tools you need, feel free to start with Google Code and use a combination of tools from this site and others. Use hyperlinks on your project summary page to guide your users to these other resources.

What other limits exist?

There are disk-space quota limits for both issue tracker attachments and total Subversion repository size, along with a limit on how many total projects you are able to create. If you hit these limits, please contact us via our Google Group or email google-code-hosting@googlegroups.com directly to discuss the situation.

How can I integrate my project blog?

You can use a gadget. Click Administer, then edit your project description to include:

But, replace the up_feeds URL with a the XML feed for your blog. If you have more than one project blog, you can list multiple URLs, separated by vertical bars (|).

Why aren't you offering my favorite tool?

We want our collaborative development environment to be simple, fast, reliable, and scalable, so we only offer tools that are aligned with those goals. This way, we can manage and support the tools we offer in a scalable manner.

If you need more tools, you might choose to run them yourself on your own servers, or you might make use of individual tools that are offered by other project-hosting sites. You can loosely integrate with other tools and websites by linking to them from your project-summary page.

Google Groups

What is a Google Group?

A Google Group is a mailing list hosted at groups.google.com. Each Google Group has an extensive web interface, but you are also perfectly welcome to use it as a plain-old mailing list.

Does creating a new project on Google Code automatically create a Google Group for me?

No. Google Code offers the ability to send issue tracker and Subversion commit emails to mailing lists of your choice, but it doesn't create those mailing lists for you.

How do I create a mailing list for my project?

You can visit Google Groups and create as many mailing lists as your project needs. We recommend that you create at least two lists: one for developer discussions and one to receive Subversion commit emails.

Can I use an existing mailing list with my project?

Sure. Just link to its existing web interface using a regular project link. If you have an existing mailing list for automated commit messages, enter its address in the form that is under the "Administer" tab.

How do I make my mailing list accept Subversion commit emails?

Simply configure your mailing list to accept posts from PROJECTNAME@googlecode.com. You can do this by adding the address to the "allowed posters" list, or by making that address a member of the list with no delivery.

Other Questions

Will my project appear in Google Web Search?

At the moment, no. It will only appear in the search results of the search box at http://code.google.com. In the future, however, your project is likely to appear in Google's main index.

Will hosting my project here improve its PageRank?

No. Your PageRank will only improve if other websites think your project is important and link to it.

How do I import my project from SourceForge, Tigris, or another site?

We have no import feature at this time.

What technology does the site use for its operation?

Like most Google products, the site is built on scalable Google infrastructure and uses AJAX for the user interface. The issue tracker is written in Python, and uses Google's free-text search technology. The Subversion server is based on the standard open source product, with changes to run on Google's infrastructure.

If I find a problem with the hosting on Google Code, how do I file a bug?

Visit the user support issue tracker. Check whether an appropriate issue has already been created, and if not, create one yourself.

How do I file a feature request for Google Code?

Visit the user support issue tracker. Check whether an appropriate issue has already been created, and if not, create one yourself.

What information does Google Code collect about users?

Check the Google Code Terms of Service for more information, with specific reference to our privacy policy.

What measures is Google Code taking to protect the privacy and security of people's information?

Privacy and security are extremely important to us.

Google Code uses your Google or Gmail account for authentication. For Subversion authentication, a secondary generated password is used. Logs of your activities are not released to any third parties.

For more info, please check out our Terms of Service.

I'm new to open source... how do I run an open source project?

If you are new, you should plan to participate in existing open source projects to learn how they work. You might also want to check out Karl Fogel's book, Producing Open Source Software.

Is Google Code going to integrate with other Google products?

To some extent it already does. For example, it uses Google Accounts for authentication, and the issue tracker uses Google's search technology. Look for more integration with other Google products as the site matures.

I found a project that's not open source. Who do I notify?

please contact us via our Google Group or email google-code-hosting@googlegroups.com directly to discuss the situation.

How do I report a DMCA violation?

Please read the Google Code Terms of Service, then follow the instructions on our DMCA page.

How do I report abuse of Google Code site?

please contact us via our Google Group or email google-code-hosting@googlegroups.com directly to discuss the situation.
