How on earth would a noob user (like me for example Cheesy ) know what to do, instead of just closing the page altogether.
I just have made "Skip ad" button more noticeable.

Will you also add a little timer like adf.ly has ? ( ex: 5 seconds )
It is bad idea! Many users are annoyed that they are forced to wait and associate adf.ly with a spam in their mind.

Ok, but do you think that it will be a bad idea to "add" a timer so that there will be both timer and button? They will be able to skip instantly if the want.
If you will add a timer, you should also add a "stop timer" button, so that the user is able to give a more deeper look to the advertised website. ( 10/15 seconds will be better than 5 if you like the idea of the "stop timer button" )

I don't understand, why the timer is need if it can be stopped and ad skipped? I see no difference with current "Skip ad" button I have already in the top frame.

There is no automatic redirect to the target URL. If a user is interested in viewing advertiser's page he can click link "Visit <advertiser's website name>" instead of "Skip ad".

I think that people don't like to "move the mouse and make additional clicks", this is the main reason for the timer.
They clicked a link to go somewhere, but they they will see another website where they aren't "probably" not interested.
The timer is a good thing to not force them to do addition clicks..

Wow. A big improvement.

You should also allow advertiser to pay per thousands impressions, rather than pay per day, and also pay publishers per thousand impressions too, its much easier to work with like that. With the current system, if I pay 1BTC how do I know how many views I'll get?

Busy ATM.

It is just alternative payment scheme for advertising, many services now use it (e.g. AnonymousAds, BitcoinAdvertisers). I this it is more fair than fixed CPM or CPC, and it is harder to cheat (less fake clicks).

Stats are available. You can view expected number of impressions for the concrete amount.

I think that you can try to clone the api of adf.ly so that it will be possible to use these instructions just by changing the url:
