The new adcode is much faster indeed, but now it seems that my sites aren't detected as containing it: health dropped to 58%, except on the site where I still haven't updated the code: http://anonymousads.com/affiliate/447

Looks like you are missing data-aa attribute
Yeah but all works fine still... is there any use in this attribute apart from breaking HTML5 validation?

Yes, it is used to detect aa code Smiley

No, it shouldn't break HTML5: http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/elements.html#embedding-custom-non-visible-data-with-the-data-attributes. Facebook uses data- attributes in its "like" buttons, so I don't think it should be a problem.

However if you don't like them, you can use "id='aa-ad-unit-<your affiliate id>'" instead (not recommended though).

How long is it supposed to take for the health to get back up? It quickly went from 49% to 66%, but has been stuck at 66% since then...

Wow, thanks for reporting! Just restarted the script, it hang for some reason.

I am not sure how much time it is supposed to take for the gealth to get back up. Time to time (currently every 20 minutes) the script checks all the active (or new) sites and estimates the probability of them to show the ad. For each particular site the math can be expressed by the following code:

Code:
$speed = 0.01;
$health = (1-$speed) * $health;
if ($isAdOnSite)
  $health += $speed;

I think we can implement API that allows automatic affiliate registration (without visiting AA site). It would allow your users to earn and even to see their stats. But probably this API would require your server to authorize somehow to prevent flooding of our database.

Hi again, just curious if this is something you plan on working on at all? Can I get an ETA? Wink

Or is it "maybe or maybe not, sometime in the unknown and distant future"...

Well here's another thing, this service leaks visitors addresses to

Facebook Social Plugins
http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=anonymousads.com&send=false&layout=box_count&width=300&show_faces=true&action=like&colorscheme=light&font&height=90
more infoGoogle +1
https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js
more infoGoogle Analytics
http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js
more infoTwitter Button

On every page.  To do this and call the site anonymous or even private is highly misleading and potentially dangerous to all the spammers advertisers that would be inclined to use such a service.
As long as it doesn't leak when including the ads on affiliates' sites, that's not much of a problem. We ourselves don't browse without ghostery, do we?  Grin

(cough cough) On the other hand, I never got any problems with payouts from Anonymous Ads... (cough cough)
Also, I don't see any privacy policy saying they don't collect visitors data. "Anonymous Ads" is the site name, and is not announced as a feature. I think the idea behind the "anonymous" name is that there are no user accounts (affiliates, advertisers and websites are independent).

If you're annoyed by the social sharing buttons (which almost every other website has nowadays) and the privacy problems they pose, you should start by blocking them from the start, as well as not displaying AddThis widgets on your advertising network website.

Hi all.. Sorry for late answer, I am on vacation now and can't respond in timely fashion. I'll be back in several days.

Yes, something bad happened to the site weights and the only way to fix them quickly was to set them equal. I plan to rework this mechanism.

Just got a note from one of my visitors that the morons at McAfee tag anonymousads as malware...  Sad

Thanks for info, I'll look at it later.

I bet that stupid software blocks tags every website with the word "anonymous" in it as malware. Oh well...

Funnily enough,  I seem to be getting more money now that the weight component was set to 20, than before when I had a weight a bit above 400...
I hope that when you rework the weight mechanism, you make the weight dynamic so that it changes with the amount of views and clicks (and preferably not just unique ones).

Testing now with an ad for Fennec Internet Services.

Hopefully you can rate this and get it running ASAP.

Have bootstrapped 0.5 BTC and put 0.75 BTC for impressions as I don't really know how to set up a goal (I wouldn't mind doing one for someone submitting a contact form, or a manually activated one for orders).

Done. Thanks for trying out the service. For goal tracking you need to embed some code on your side. You can either register a goal at AA (and use its Goal Tracking mechanism), or you can track the affiliate addresses (that are passed to your site via $_GET parameter with each visitor) yourself and send bitcoins to them if they generate sales.

The news I'd like to hear about the weights, is that they become proportional to the affiliate's number of impressions and clicks, and not just some fixed number.

I removed site weights. Affiliates will be rewarded in proportion to <n of impressions during last 7 days>*(<n of clicks during last 7 days> + 1).

Please note that <n of impressions> and <n of clicks> are filtered according to some internal criteria. Globally unique IPs and reasonable CTRs are rewarded. Those earnings will be still shown as "Earned from sites:" on affiliates' page (even though they are not related to sites anymore).

I hope I didn't mess anything, let's see how it works.

This is still a temporary solution, I work on AA2 that will introduce major changes and replace this logic too.
