Hi, I tried running an ad and have a small problem.  The end of my url ends in a number so that I can track an ad's performance.  This number is being appended so that instead of getting e.g. 34 I'm getting clicks from 341, 3413, etc.  This is messing up my performance tools and I'll have a harder time determining whether to continue using your service.

BTC accepted at my browser-based MMO, Minethings.com.  ~1500 active players mining now.

Hi, thanks for your feedback!

Yes, there is a feature: ad's url is being appended with bitcoin address that corresponds to reward address of affiliate who brought a visit to you.

I am not sure how your performance tool works. If it works for any url of your site, it will show performance of each affiliate separately and you may choose whom to reward to get more impressions. If it takes some id in url, then you could probably append your ad link with "#", "?" or "&" to separate it from the bitcoin address which is being added by AA.

I should have made this behavior optional, but it is not yet. Sorry for inconvenience, I will fix it in near future.

I will evaluate each site manually and assign a weight to it. Some of the bootstrap money will be distributed between affiliates of submitted sites with respect to this weight and affiliate's share of the site (the share is estimated automatically).
How often is this weight reevaluated ? Some sites seem to have insanely high weights compared to their amount of visits and clicks, for instance: http://anonymousads.com/affiliate/439 and http://anonymousads.com/affiliate/423 vs http://anonymousads.com/affiliate/447

Thanks for your question!

Weight is not directly related to amount of clicks or impressions (as all this data can be faked).

Weight represents the relative value of site from my point of view (I can use various tools to estimate it or do it subjectively).

It can't be 100% fair, but it is not intended to be the main source of income for affiliates.

Reevaluation happens time to time manually, it is not automated yet. If you feel that your site is undervalued in comparison with others - please send me a private message with your arguments and desired weight value.

Btw, affiliates mentioned by you got registered recently and didn't have enough time to generate many unique clicks and impressions, moreover amount of non-unique impressions is about 6 times higher than amount of unique impressions shown on affiliate's page.

I can't really pretend I know how much my site should be weighted, particularly since I'm quite new to this system, but I think I can make fairly good guesses at whether or not it should be weighted higher or lower compared to the sites I mentioned previously. Will send a few details via PM tomorrow (or maybe I should wait a bit more - have all those sites already be manually weighted in the first place ?).

Yes, all sites with positive weight have been weighted. Please let me know your thoughts, I appreciate any help in evaluating them ) Thanks!

If anyone want to use anonymous ads in Phonegap apps for Android remember to include https://anonymousads.com to the cordova.xml file as an extra <access origin="https://anonymousads.com*"/>

Just wondering: what's with the new huge fonts in the text ads? Bug or new "feature"?

This is just a new version of twitter bootstrap... Is it bad?

Well, it seems much bigger so the longest ads don't fit in the allocated space anymore. It also tends to mismatch the usual smaller font of websites or of other ad networks... Doesn't really look good IMO (and doesn't match the preview, too):

Thank you for your feedback! I think I fixed the font size.

Spelling error: "Sorry, couldn't determine redirection link (your browser ingored a cookie?). Please select the ad from the list."

And BTW that error showed when I clicked your sig link.

Strange... does your browser accept cookies? is there a cookie named "ad_unit_1" for site "anonymousads.com"? (if yes, could you please send me its content?)

Thanks!

Well I figured ABP might be screwing it up, but even after disabling it I still only have the following cookies:

PHPSESSID
__utma
__utmb
__utmc
__utmz

However I think I do block third-party cookies, if that makes a difference.

Well, then it explains everything. When your browser requests an image (http://anonymousads.com/userbar/1 in this case), the server chooses the image and sends the cookie to your browser.. So when you click the link, it knows what image has been shown to you and how to redirect you to the advertiser's site. If your browser doesn't accept cookies, this mechanism wouldn't work and you get redirected to the list of ads to choose the one you need manually.

I see so that only affects image links? Because I do accept first party and session cookies.

Yes, it affects only image links (since they are static, but should redirect to different locations based on the image shown).

Links for text ads don't depend on cookies as they are generated on the server side.

It's funny how I started making more bitcoins with Anonymous Ads after I closed BitCrate. Smiley

Looks like the site has become a lot more popular with advertisers recently.
