Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 23, 2011 at 3:27:42 PM
Great news everyone! ASE Adnet Version 2 is ready for use by all current publishers. We've grabbed the latest user data and ported it over. If your account credentials don't work, let us know.

ASE Adnet Version 2 is primarily a CPA network, but we will have premium publishers that will have a higher mix of CPC adverts as well. The domain to use if you still log into Version 1 is http://www.asead.net . If you don't log into Version 1 anymore, http://ver2.aseadnet.com works as well.

CA/UK/AU/BR/MX/... CPC Coming

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on October 6, 2008 at 11:45:58 PM
I'm working on a huge update to ASE Adnet to provide CPC pricing information for all the regions in the title.

Canada
Great Britain
Australia
Brazil
Mexico

This is all preliminary and feasibility tests will be starting soon. If you have high non USA traffic, please let me know as I could really use some testers.

Canada will be the first region to supplement the current USA (North America) CPC pricing. This will increase CTR for Canadian readers as the prices will be listed in CAD instead of USD and will show Canadian sellers.

Once again, this is all in the feasibility stage of things. I'm sure that most regions will be validated for use on ASE Adnet, but you never know. CPA sources will still be used outside those target regions.

I expect that ASE Adnet will truly become a one stop shop for all regional CPC price comparisons. It is also for this reason that you should switch to keyword ads if you are using PID type, or at least add default keywords in for these new ad regions. PIDs only work with the Primary USA CPC provider.

UK High End CPA - Sunday

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on October 3, 2008 at 9:56:15 PM
Good news everyone! The Amazon US/UK CPA ads are completely stable on the staging site and will be released Sunday at about 12:00AM EDT. I'll do Server2 first a bit before and then do Server1.

The Amazon ads are of a much higher quality than the Ebay CPA defaults. The new ads still target CPC ads for English speakers except those in the UK region.

In addition to the Amazon CPA, I'm 90% sure that I will have a CPC shopping provider for the UK area as well which means that all of Europe should be covered by this as well. The new shopping provider will be able to price direct Canadian pricing as well.

In addition to the addition, I'm still investigating AU pricing as that is a big market as well. I've got a few ideas progressing about that and will be pursuing that as well.

If you have questions or concerns, please email me... aron@aselabs.com

Old Targeting Back

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on October 3, 2008 at 9:40:09 AM
The drop in revenues will cease starting today as ASE Adnet went back to the old way of targeting. We are showing the North American CPC ads for all English speaking people once again.

Once international CPC is released, we will begin to tweak the targeting mechanisms to provide the highest revenue possible.

High Quality International CPA Soon

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on October 2, 2008 at 11:11:59 PM
I'm happy to report that progress is going very quickly with the new higher quality CPA ads. They will only be targeted for the UK (and North America if you forced CPA). This data will be provided by Amazon and is a much higher quality than the Ebay CPA ads that are currently being shown.

I'm going to add a new variable to two as well. Customizability is one of the key points of ASE Adnet and with all these new data sources come new challenges. I'm going to specifically add a variable that allows the image size to be relaxed. Right now, the ads are made for three image sizes; 60x60, 100x100, and 160x160. The new data sources (and soon to be others) don't always offer a square image. It is for this reason that the size had to be scaled to fit the current layouts. Once the new relaxed image variable comes out (unsure of how it will be implemented just yet), all the styles will be updated.

There is also some good news for international CPC pricing. I'm currently going over a few different providers and will have more information soon.

Staging Area Updated

If anyone is interested in testing the new higher quality CPA ads (Amazon), please let me know. Amazon ads can show for the UK and the North American region.

Once the Amazon ads are rolled out, new publishers with lower quality traffic will be able to join on a CPA only basis. Unlike Ebay, Amazon's ads provide great data for keyworded products.

I'd like anyone with a good amount of UK traffic to contact me and try out this new data provider. It should be fairly stable ;)... no promises, though.

Server2 Backend Updated

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 29, 2008 at 2:48:51 PM
Everyone on the network should know by now that I usually do updates quickly and I decided it was a good time to roll out Server2's updated early.

I plan on doing Server1 later tonight since the update progressed so smoothly. If you notice any weirdness or anything, just let me know. Make sure to grab the new adcode to grab the latest features offered by the new backends.

Version 2 is here and we are on the way to make additional money that wasn't realized.

Server2 Backend Update Tomorrow Night

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 28, 2008 at 8:44:17 PM
Tomorrow night at around 11:00PM EDT (or so), the Server2 backend will be updated to provide international ad sources to further improve the markets that Adnet can payout on. After the rollout is completed, the beta staging area will be once again updated for another CPA data source to test its feasibility for ASE Adnet's publishers. The new data source will be of a higher quality than the Ebay CPA that will be rolled out and will be available after extensive testing has been done.

I would also like to hint that international CPC product comparison is coming to ASE Adnet. It is my hope that ASE Adnet will be a one stop shop for all product comparisons for every region of the world. Now is really the time to jump on to get more people involved with ASE Adnet.

Backend Update This Week

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 27, 2008 at 3:10:34 PM
ASE Adnet will be rolling out the new data provider on its backend this coming week. Expect no delays during the rollout. Server2 will be updated first and then Server1 will be the day after.

This means that the ASE Adnet will be able to show ads for every region from now on. We are also working with additional providers to increase the value of products being shown which will give an additional boost for publishers.

If you have any questions about this transition, please let me know at aron@aselabs.com.

To everyone that is currently using the beta staging test backend, it will be updated after the full rollout for additional data providers. You are free to leave the staging backend in use, but be mindful that there may be errors from time to time as this is a non-stable backend.

New Data Sources Soon

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 19, 2008 at 11:19:45 PM
The network is coming along very nicely and I'm happy to report that certain publishers have been testing out a brand new update to ASE Adnet to provide its own geotargeted ads. No longer will ASE Adnet be limited to North America for making money. The new provider (Ebay) is CPA, but I'm also working on international pricing sites as well.

With Ebay, I can open up ASE Adnet to many more people that I would have otherwise rejected since quality is not a concern for CPA. Remember that these new data providers will give a boost in revenue that currently wasn't being realized.

I'm planning on giving a very large percent of the CPA revenue from the new data provider to entice more people to join. Once the new ads go live, every new publisher (except pre-approved ones) will be placed into the CPA only side of things and if the traffic looks good, the network will switch over to CPC in the related markets.

Yes, there is another ad network that does this as well... But, ASE Adnet gives you the power of control. You make the ads, you control the content.

As a publisher myself, I can't think of a better network to be with at this exciting time.

(Sorry, I had to pat myself on the back after that coding session)

Total Monetization Of Traffic Soon

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 14, 2008 at 10:54:12 AM
This post is related to the post below that updated the front end to provide new revenue sources. I'm pleased to say that the search and testing phase of new revenue sources (IE: paying all traffic) is well under way.

There are a few things to work out with the data providers, but I believe that I can work out any problems that may happen. If everything works out as I expect it will, you can expect a brand new international auction provider (guess which one) to provide CPA payouts on traffic that ASE Adnet wouldn't currently pay for.

While this isn't like the standard CPC that you are used too, it is an additional boost of revenue that otherwise wouldn't be available. In addition to that, this could lower the standards bar for other publishers as well. The new backend system I'm working on can switch between showing data providers and it can switch to a CPA provider if the traffic provided is bad (IE: Non converting clicks) or doesn't provide a good CTR from the normal ads.

I'm currently testing the new ad system on ASE Labs (only the articles section). If you are not from North America, visit ASE Labs and see one of the articles. You'll notice that the ads are completely geotargeted to providing relevancy to your location. Go ahead and click on the ad (if you aren't in North America) to see where it leads.

If you would like to test the new system, just let me know. I can only accept a few light traffic people and be aware that there may be issues (nothing major).

Front End Update Successful

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 10, 2008 at 10:24:09 PM
Since you are reading this, the front end update was successful. Please let me know if there are any problems (especially with reporting). You'll notice a new field on the revenue report selection for the source. It is only "Primary" for now. As soon as there are more sources to make you money, it will be posted here.

Thanks for your continuing support of ASE Adnet and there are bigger updates to come.

Edit: Forgot to mention that this update brings Adnet's front end back inline with Version 4 (fully at http://www.aronschatz.com) so once everything is updated, it will provide the same features as the Version 4 test site.

Front End Update Tomorrow

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 9, 2008 at 6:38:52 PM
Changes are in store for Adnet and the start of the changes will be happening tomorrow. The front end (this site and the reporting areas) will be updated to provide the ability to use more data providers with the backend and handle the reporting issues that come with that. I'm planning on doing the update tomorrow night (that would be Sept 10th).

The site will go offline for a brief time and will return as soon as the update is finished. There will be no changes to the backend so your ads will continue to run without problems.

A backend update is coming later, but I'm staggering the updates. The backend update is minimal for the time being as well.

This update brings Adnet into a better role to provide more revenue directly. We will be partnering with more providers to give the publishers (you) extra revenue from currently non-monetized sources. When this happens, the geoadcode area will be removed since Adnet can provide revenue for everything.

I'm always interested in what the publishers think about the changes, not only will this update provide new Adnet features, it also brings Adnet's codebase back inline with ASE Version 4. The next step is a simple upgrade to provide the forum and you'll be able to comment and such on there. I'm pleased to continue updating ASE Adnet to the fullest it can be.

To all the publishers: Thank you for your continued support. Adnet's growth will always go into helping bring you more profit.

Working On More Than Product Shopping

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on July 21, 2008 at 1:27:14 PM
ASE Adnet is looking out for its publishers and will soon be able to offer more than just product pricing information. We are currently look at a few different types of data to use on the Version 2 network for ASE Adnet. When there is more information, it will be posted. There are some interesting things including international support coming.
