Edit: I read the numbers wrong... it says: 347K adverts not 15K so my numbers below are wrong..  but if there was only 15K (at the moment) unique impressions per day......

You say that base the payout on the number of unique ip addresses.

At the moment (on your home page) you say you have around 15,000 Unique IP Addresses/day

Say I have 15,000 Unique IP Addresses/day (I have a lot more).. should I get 1/2 of whatever is paid per day into your system (maybe 0.25B per day) ? or does every advertiser have to choose a particular publisher before I get any payout and then its only from that advertiser?

Considering its really impossible for advertisers to find my website to advertise on  (as its listed as "Ad Unit #XXXX") and you need lots of clicks to get to it/let alone find it..

Thanks..

Just trying to figure this out.

...should I get 1/2 of whatever is paid per day into your system (maybe 0.25B per day) ?

Yes, if you generate about half of our unique traffic, you are likely to get about half of publishers' income. It is a rough estimation though since advertisers are free to distribute their money as they like. If all of them just add root category to their campaign and pay (and you allow any ads), then yes, you get a half.

Please note that IPs that are unique for your site might not be unique for a-ads (e. g. if you get 100 pageviews from 10 IPs, but we saw 9 of those IPs from other publishers, we count only 1 unique IP for you).

Also if you are restrictive (e. g. you don't allow gambling ads) then you are likely to receive less than that. On the other hand if you generate quality traffic or for some other reason advertisers want to buy ads specifically from you - you are likely to receive more than that.

Advertisers can buy ads specifically from you. E. g. if you hover the a-ads icon on top-right of your ad unit you will see "Your ad here" link. That is one of the ways to buy ads specifically from your site without spending much time in the catalog.

Advertisers can also use search to find your site if they know your URL, or they can select a category that contains your site. Many advertisers select just root category or "Bitcoin" (they can navigate the catalog and see the average traffic & CPM for each category).

The system is pretty flexible, the main principle is simple: advertisers pay to ad units (either explicitly via goal tracking API, or implicitly via targeting and daily budget) and get a share of impressions from them. It is somewhat tough to use it though, that's why advertising is cheap. But we aim to improve it.

We implemented several features for advertisers:
  • Advertisers can see how much traffic they get from each ad unit (sorted by non-unique clicks)
  • Advertisers can ban/unban ad units
  • Advertisers can see if their campaign is waiting for moderation

Also fixed couple issues in statistics.

If I put the same ad unit twice on my page, will it not affect my earnings?

If most of your income comes from untargetted advertisers' daily budgets, then it won't significantly affect your earnings since we distribute advertisers' money between publishers with respect to amount of globally unique traffic they generate, and this number doesn't depend on amount of banners placed on the page.

However if placing additional banner improves the chances that your visitor will buy from advertiser who rewards for sales, then it might increase your earnings.

E. g. we are such an advertiser. If your visitor comes to us from your ad unit and creates an ad, you will receive 50% of fees collected from that ad.

I am not sure how many advertisers do it, but according to our global stats goals make ~5% of publishers' income.

Thanks for your message. Yes, we have a technical problem now and are working to resolve it. Statistics and deposits/withdrawals will be delayed. Ad rotation works fine, but changes to advertising campaigns won't propagate until we fix the problem. Sorry for inconvenience.

Something seems off with the counting of unique visitors today. My site has a pretty consistent amount of visitors per day. Today it seems that it just stopped counting unique visitors about 3/4 of the way through the day. I run two separate analytics platforms and they are giving accurate visits/views. A-ads is showing much less and I'm pretty sure my none of my visitors would have visited any of the other publishers sites because my niche is different than most.

Any idea why this might be?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like it is correct now. I  think there is a time zone difference, so it just seemed like it wasn't adding up because the day starts at a different time for me than it does on your server.

Probably you saw this error when we were updating our server software. Or do you still get it? If so - please send me a link in PM.

Thanks for your message!

Question: I started using AA a couple of minutes ago and when I created my first ad (I am a publisher), after adding it to my main page I only get the following:


I then tried to create several ads with different categories, but this happens to every single ad I create even if I don't block ANY types of ads (NSFW etc enabled).
Am I doing something wrong here, or should I just wait?

Thanks.

Thanks for the question.

We are not pay-per-click or pay-per-impression advertising network. Advertisers pay any amount to publishers and get a share of impressions from them. Most of the time they do it indirectly by selecting the categories and setting their daily budget. In that case we distribute their money among publishers with respect to their unique traffic (globally unique IPs per 24 hours). But to do it we need to collect some statistics about publisher first, it takes time. Low traffic sites may require couple of days, high traffic sites start showing ads (and earning) much quicker. If your site doesn't generate a single globally unique impression per day then you are unlikely to get any ads and income (unless you attract a buyer to advertisers that pay for that).

Hope this answers your question and thanks for trying us out!

Do you know anything about ad units 508 and 5028?

They generate lots of clicks and CTR is through the roof. This is very suspicious.

No, I don't. Advertisers have an option not to pay to ad units that look suspicious to them (i. e. ban them in their campaign).
