Promote Your Business/Product/Blog Through Orkut For Free!

Yesterday while I was browsing in Orkut, I found something peculiar in the right sidebar ad. I thought it was just another normal creative advertisement and ignored it many times. But, later I gave a sharp look. Then I came to know the new feature of Orkut called Orkut Promote. This is like a self-advertising platform where advertisers and regular Orkut users can promote their content including photos, videos or text among the Orkut community. Google charges advertisers for promotion while regular Orkut members don’t need to pay any fee for using Orkut promote.
