I use this service too and I think it is great. Good job with it. Just need to find a sweet spot with where to put the links.

I have used this service since its start, not as a publisher but as an advertiser for my websites.
I recall the first ad was for my own URL shortening service (w/out ads), and it was even a bit aggressive ("tired of waiting for redirection? my shortener has no ads"); recently I have taken a more passive approach since I figured out CoinURL isn't exactly in the same market/user base as my URL shortener - no need to get more enemies Wink
More recently, I also bought ads for another website of my own, with positive results - even though the ad I posted for it accidentally broke the iframe of the redirection page, support contacted me in a few hours and I had the problem solved in a couple more. CoinURL also implemented the feature I suggested in the emails we exchanged, the one of ad preview (exactly to prevent broken iframes).

As an advertiser, I'm quite satisfied with this service and its support system (fast reply, no annoying ticket system, and even accept users' suggestions), even though as an link-clicking user I really hate services like CoinURL, making me wait to browse to the links I clicked.

It would be nice if we could choose a max number of daily visits so the views won't run out the first day.

It is called frequency capping. I have already introduced this feature few days ago.

Maybe I have incorrectly understood what did you mean and in fact you are asking about limiting overall number of impressions per day, not views by the same user. If yes, you just don't understand how are auction-based ads working! Completion speed (number of impressions per day) depends from CPM bid, therefore to get less impressions just pay cheaper price!  Grin

I do understand how are auction-based ads work.

The problem is when all other ads expire.
Yesterday I got 28.7k impressions (87% of total impressions). This way my ads will expire all in the same day, and I don't want this.
It would be nice if we could edit active ads.

You must blame link publishers who force you to wait! In CoinURL, unlike AdFly, any publisher can set maximum wait time applicable for their links, depending on how does his audience tolerate forced wait time.

Someone have started to use auto shortening feature on his highly visited site, so average number of clicks per day skyrocketed by 10 times. Even I haven't expected such big instant growth! It proves that using my auto shortening script is the same easy like putting banner ads.

Ad editing and budget management now available!

Go to the "My ads" page and open context menu:



P.S. Few days ago someone with heavy traffic website installed our auto shortening script and boosted number of clicks to more than 30k per day. This traffic is absolutely legitimate and has very high quality (visitors mostly from U.S. and western Europe). Many advertisers were not ready for this significant increase of the traffic and their remaining impressions depleted, so advertising cost dropped to the ridiculously low value ~0.045 BTC per mille.

Don't miss your opportunity while eyes of these visitors are so damn cheap!

On advertisement's stats page you can estimate performance of the ad: expected number of impressions per day and campaign's completion time. Use this data to adjust CPM bid and achieve the best cost/speed ratio! See an example.

Main page was completely redesigned. I am not a professional designer, so may be you have some suggestions how to make it more attractive.

I like it, it reminds me of the homepage of my tnyCloud service. I think the four bigger icons in the middle of the page need to be anti-aliased because they look ugly now.

This style comes from Bootstrap promo page, so it can be found on a whole bunch of websites.
But I think 4 big icons in the middle adds some originality.

Yes, I know, I'm not criticizing you. In fact, the icons on my page are in the opposite side (float: right) of the div, when compared.

They look much better now Smiley You're not so bad at web design as you say...

I have changed colors for the promo image. I think now it fits better to the "United" Bootstrap theme.

Original image:


After change:


Which do you think looks better?

The orange, changed image looks better on the website. Even though it looks fine now, take care not to abuse of the orange color if you ever make more changes to the layout. Too much orange is one of the problems I find on some websites with the United theme.

Advertising costs dropped to the average 0.02 BTC per 1000 views. It is really cheap comparing to other Bitcoin advertising networks!

Can you not delete ads when they're out of funds?
It's very boring to create the same ad all over again and wait for review.

You don't need to create new ad! Just go to the "My ads" -> "Show history", click "Manage budget" on selected ad and enter number of impressions you want to buy.

and wait for review.
I will fix it soon.
