That is why you will never make much money with a-ads, there system is horrible, imagine Google Adsense the biggest advertising company in the world did that? they wouldn't be where they are today with such service. There are many better bitcoin advertising networks which count all impressions per site and not per network

A-ads is only good for advertisers because the rate is so cheap, but as a publisher you will make pennies

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.

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.
That's.... not a very good model :-/
yeah, I guess the only people benefiting are the advertisers.  Not sure why there are still publishers who are able to "gamble" like this.

I did and I've already stopped trying to earn with a-ads.  Other sites pay MUCH more fair and better.  The stats and CPM and CPC are just off.
Google Analytics shows the best stats, trust me.  We get ~100000 views per day with sometimes 110 + different active sessions.

Edit: FaucetWorld, PM me if you want to know more about what I'm using, I don't want to cluster up their thread.  I just wanted to express my opinion and I have done so.

I will not defend a-ads. I resign from this service long time ago Wink

You mean Coinad pays good, but not so good like AdSense..? Wink I want try them but what is going on with "Invite code"? How i can get it?

Did you try MellowAds? They for sure are better than Bitmedia, but can you compare Coinad to this two services (Mellow and/or Bitmedia)?

Most services are better than AdSense... they're for people that can't get into other networks.

So far, I've found that AdSense pays the most, but there might be another site out there that pays out a lot. What other ad network do you recommend?

I can't really "recommend" any because the vast majority that I use are invite-only, so it would do no good to do so.

Your best bet is to network with others and become an authority figure if your niche, Smiley.

There is a misconception here. You are not paid per click or per impression. We just use the network-wide unique IPs to determine the relative size of your traffic. That's just one of the metrics to determine your cut of advertisers' budgets. See http://blog.anonymousads.com/2014/08/why-am-i-not-paid-for-clicks-what-is.html for details.

We don't use Javascript/flash on the embedded ads and don't store cookies. That makes us different from AdSense and other networks.


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.

It doesn't matter. The visitor can visit your site before Coindesk, or 24 hours may pass after s/he visited the Coindesk. It is a stochastic process.

The important thing is that if you have exactly the same audience as Coindesk and users open your page as often as Coindesk, then both of you would get equal amount of unique impressions. If they open Coindesk 100 times more often, then you are likely to earn 100 times less. That's fair.

A-ads is only good for advertisers because the rate is so cheap, but as a publisher you will make pennies  

The rate is determined by the market. All the non-unique impressions are supposed to be priced in (same as all the tried hashes are priced in the bitcoin mining process). Publishers' earnings mainly depend on their traffic (think of it as of hashing power) and advertisers' spendings. If traffic is converting and is too cheap, advertisers are expected to pay more. They don't pay per impression, they pay for share of traffic and expect to get all the non-unique impressions too. So theoretically CPM in our network should be higher than in others.

So if page doesn't have hundreds thousands of visitors will get dust.. Or in other words if someone have little traffic this service is not good for him..

That's why i resign from a-ads. When i run my first web i take two adverts from a-ads and after two weeks i get some little dust.

Don't get me wrong but it looks like your service is not for beginners but only for big players.

Technically, you could have low traffic BUT be the first site most people visit (aka become a very useful, unique site) and you'd earn a lot. In a sense, it's kind of promoting capitalism. Be better than the competition and take their market share.

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

Thanks for your kind words!

Yes, we deployed a new dashboard that is supposed to make publishers' and advertisers' life a little bit easier.

Users can deposit funds to their accounts now.

Account's balance will be used to automatically top up campaigns when they run out of funds. No need to deposit funds to each campaign individually any more.

Since we don't want to accumulate and store large amounts of money indefinitely, account's balance will be withdrawn automatically if user's earnings are greater than expenses or funds are not being touched for a while.

I will create a blog post with a more detailed explanation in a few days.

Automatically sending coins from our balance to our non-funded campaigns might need some more thought. One of my ads which I want to be paused right now automatically started advertising itself again!

If my campaign has zero coins in it, this meant before that the ad was paused until I added more funds, but with this new coin top-up change all of my campaigns flipped the on switch without warning and spent funds in a way I didn't approve of.

If I wanted my campaigns to have automatic top-ups, I would have set my publisher ads as "pay to campaign" instead.

Now if we hold any balance in our accounts, we have no control over a maximum spend on our ad campaigns, unless we go back in there afterwards and manually set the daily budget down to nothing.

------
Also, the website is showing a "heavy load" warning.

"This website is under heavy load

We're sorry, too many people are accessing this website at the same time. We're working on this problem. Please try again later."

This is definitely concerning... though there's no way to simply pause campaigns? This seems like a core part of having one.

Yes, can set your campaign's daily budget to 0 to pause it.

Thanks for pointing this out. You are right, we should have thought more about the transition process. Existing users might not expect that their zombie-campaigns become active. I've set daily_budget to 0 for all campaigns that are older than 1 day and have a low balance, so it shouldn't be an issue any more.

If the funds of your user account were spent on your old campaigns that you didn't want to run then please drop an email to contact@a-ads.com.
