We again have some problems with the hosting.
If CoinURL page doesn't opens, try to use HTTPS instead of HTTP, e.g. https://coinurl.com

For ad slots the same solution must work.

P.S. CoinURL is located on the virtual hosting, therefore I am unable to do anything. It is an early morning in the Riga now, so tech support doesn't work.

UPD: Issue solved.

We would like to introduce updated site-specific ad system on the CoinURL, which solves main drawback of the site-specific-only ad systems like Operation Fabulous, but provides possibility to the advertisers to place ads only on the selected sites with desired quality traffic:

Now you can prevent your ads from showing on the sites containing some keywords by prepending them with the minus sign.

I see, server offline now. It seems that hoster not yet completed maintenance in the term as promised.

UPD: Server alive again!

Hi there giantdragon, you have a great service and we will start using it on Rugatu more than before  Smiley

We just installed the banner and some users complain getting this error message in it's place:

Code:
Warning: mysqli::mysqli() [mysqli.mysqli]: (42000/1226): User 'bitlatsl_coinurl' has exceeded the 'max_user_connections' resource

Do you know what could be the cause?

Glad to see you have chosen CoinURL as advertising network for the Rugatu.

This error (exceeding limit of the maximum simultaneous connections to the MySQL database) happen if web hosting's server is just overloaded or experiencing performance drop due to some problem. Usually it happens during very short time interval, so you have no reason to worry. If it persists for longer time, notify me and I will call hosting's tech support.

Its been persisting for few days already - do you plan to upgrade? (sorry but 20 concurrent connections is laughable)
Also you'd be better replacing this error with custom message - our users now think that its our problem, so we'll look forward to replace your system by other better functioning.

This limit set by hoster.

I never expected so rapid grow. About for 2 months we had about 500k daily impressions, but yesterday it increased to 1.7 million.
We will consider hosting upgrade.

I see... today 500k imp from hackcf.biz ... really quality site...
Nevermind, I'll stick to what is working (adsense) till you fix it.

What is currently your share of ads? Are you able to fund proper hosting with it?

For a long time (since CoinURL launch to this day) relatively cheap virtual hosting was enough to handle load. I have paid out 100% of the advertisers' funds, but when I will move to the more powerful server I have no other choice than start charging some fee.

P.S. Have you any suggestions for affordable VPS?

UPD1: I have called my hosting company and they agreed to increase max connections to the database 5 fold right now, so you must not see annoying MySQL error anymore.

UPD1: We have updated stats for the advertisers. Now you can see number of both counted (for which you pay) and raw (including rejected) clicks and impressions.

There is no reason not to charge advertisers. So lets move to more professional platform by taking a share as commission from each click.
I'm sure that we publishers want stable platform and are able to share our revenue with middleman/you which maintains the ad feed (adsense charges at least 40%)...

Also, since you offer affiliate program I'd like to see "coinurl.com" link in the corner of each ad to bear affiliate link of each publisher.

I decided to try donation funding model at first. But if it won't work, I will have no other choice than introducing a commission fee.
BTW, charging fees while CoinURL is not so big is very undesirable move. Our average CPC now is low comparing to the Google AdSense and
other big networks, therefore reducing it by 30-40% can drive away publishers.

Also, since you offer affiliate program I'd like to see "coinurl.com" link in the corner of each ad to bear affiliate link of each publisher.
Just click "Request verification" in the ad slot's context menu and your referral link will appear on the "Ads by CoinURL" place.

Am I correctly understand, you are asking about unique impressions? If true, we collect only aggregate data about impressions for banner ads and slots with precision of one hour. Only banner clicks and interstitial ad impressions are tracked individually.

BTW, now we are receiving about 500-600k impressions per day and this number grow every day. If I would start inserting info about each impression into database (which require at least 4 fields to be uniquely tracked: ad_id, slot_id, client_ip and timestamp), it would produce
many gigabytes of data every day. In the future, if our profits will be enough to build own data center Roll Eyes, this feature of course will be available!
