Hello there. I would like to ask if there is anyway to increase the maximum a-ads ad slot from one to two? Having limited to just one a-ads ad slot is a good idea in a sense that there will be no duplicate advertisement. However, it is also bad for some advertiser who like to use a-ads.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Publishers can embed as many ad units as they like. It won't have significant effect on their earnings though unless advertisers decide to concentrate their budgets on them (or reward them for the attracted customers).

We have a generous affiliate program: people that attract paying advertisers get half of fees we collect from them (~10% of their spendings).

We probably over-deliver since we display only globally-unique IPs by default and advertisers get more impressions than they probably expect for their money.

We even offer free advertising for advertisers that agree to integrate with our API (http://blog.anonymousads.com/2015/04/receive-free-traffic-pay-after-you-get.html).

But the advertising budgets are low, average CPM is only ~$0.15 for 1000 of globally-unique IPs. That probably means that advertisers (i. e. the ones that pay money for advertising) switched to other advertising networks.

What do you think is the reason of the declining revenue? What is the most important thing that needs to be done to fix it?

I think it's more catering to publishers than advertisers. If there aren't enough publishers, advertisers stop. MellowAds has been taking off lately, so you might want to look into what you're doing differently.

I'm sure there's lots of reasons for declining revenues, but here is my case, which I'm sure isn't a singular example. I am a publisher and an advertiser.

As a publisher, I have a higher traffic site where I display a-ads to earn money.

As an advertiser, I pay sites on the a-ads network to bring more traffic to my lower traffic site.

I used earnings from my higher traffic site to pay for advertising to draw more visitors to my lower traffic site. But after the big changes, my publisher earnings went way way down, so I didn't have the ability to keep paying as an advertiser anymore, even though I wanted to because the costs per impressions were very advantageous at the time.

If my publisher earnings from the higher traffic site were at the old rates, I would have more money to continue running ads through the a-ads system. But without the earnings, I cannot run the campaigns to my full wishes.

Yes something is strange.
I have just onver checked shortly.
At the moment advertisers have banners on my sites for 1 satoshi per hour.(it is what I get)
Good for them...
The question is:
Why are not more advertisers seeing this do not say:
why not pay 1 satoshi per hour to be seen with the hope to be visited?
Certainly because they do not know it.
And i'm sure 100 site are in the same situation.
Why do advertisers pay sometimes so much and pass away so good opportunities?
Certainly for the same reason than I do not advertise...so far.
But I will analyse it closer soon...
I'm sure we are not clearly informed from a-ads or we are not teached enough to go towards this information.

The earnings are likely related to how unique impressions are counted. I had to remove a-ads from a high-traffic site of mine for the same reason.

ranlo, winspiral, Chromlea, thanks for your feedback!

So you highlighted the following problems:

1) Our main metric is globally unique IPs. It doesn't work well for some publishers, especially for the ones that share the same audience or have multiple ad units on the same page.

2) If publisher's ad unit doesn't generate a single globally unique IP per day then it doesn't earn and there is no easy way for advertisers to locate and buy non-unique traffic from such ad units.

3) Our interface doesn't communicate the available features well, many aspects are not intuitive.

3. Set withdraw parameters
to user's account

Not very clear this...

Here you specify whether you want your earnings to be sent to your user's account or to your bitcoin address.

If you have multiple ad units then the first option is preferable since it enables automatic pooled withdrawals (withdrawal threshold is set for user account, not for individual ad units).

PS: We'll be upgrading server software today. Downtime of our main site is possible, but ad rotation won't be affected. Sorry for inconvenience.

Our average CPM skyrockets:



It is pretty volatile though.

Some advertisers request pop-under traffic. What do you think, should we implement optional pop-under ads?

How would they work under your current system? for popunders you need to count every impression not just unique or the publisher is annoying there visitors for very little income!

I have nothing about popunder but not on my sites...and I avoid to visit such popunder sites if it is not worth for me.

I don't yet know how it would work, that's why I'd like to discuss it.

Perhaps the visitor would receive a popunder only if 2 conditions are met:
  • the publisher enabled pop-under ad
  • the visitor's IP is unique

Thus publishers must explicitly enable pop-under ads if they want to have them on their sites, visitor won't see pop-unders more than once per day and advertiser will receive only unique visitors.

I like that idea for the pop-unders. And if you implement that, can you also set a way to use fallback/passback tags when a visitor isn't unique (for normal banners)? If you could do this, I'd absolutely return. But it's hard to justify using banners, which may or may not go to unique users, rather than using ads where they're counted regardless.

Is it really that hard? Think of it as of Bitcoin mining.

Bitcoin miners don't know whether they are going to find a block now or not, but still they continue hashing and sometimes they find the block and get rewarded. In average miner's income is proportional to his/her share of the total hash rate.

Similarly is in a-ads sometimes you get unique IPs and get rewarded, your income is proportional to your share of the total traffic.

Most higher end networks (not BTC-related) offer passbacks. You set them so that if the advertisers have nothing to show from one network, they will pull from another. In a case like mine, they are then chained together with floors. It'd just be a nice feature to have, Smiley.

I'm really not sure what's the difference between impressions and unique impressions, based on the stats I've been getting... I mean, 2000 impressions and only 6 "unique" impressions? lol.

There's probably something wrong with that. Tongue

But AFAIK, a unique impression is the amount of different people that have viewed your ad. An impression is the amount of times your ad has been seen. Here's an example:

Person A views your website 7 times in one day. You'll get one unique impression, and 7 impressions.

I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

But yeah, something's definitely wrong with your stats.

EDIT: Never mind, read ranlo's post. Smiley

The only unique ones are those that haven't ever seen another A-Ads ad that day. So if someone visits Coindesk before your site, for example, Coindesk gets paid and you don't.
