Slider Ads Announced
Tuesday, August 09, 2011
We are happy to announce that starting September 1st 2011, BidVertiser will be supporting Slider Ads.

Slider Ads are ads that are sliding up from the bottom of the screen and show on top of the page. This ad format is incredibly popular and it generates extremely high revenues. Slider Ads are showing up only once per 24 hours per user, are completely non-intrusive and have a small close button right above them.

The great news are that we have been testing Slider Ads with our top publishers for the past months and results are fantastic, generating a revenue growth of over 200%.

The revenue payment for the Slider Ads will be listed as part of your Conversion Revenue.

As always, quality of traffic makes a difference in this case as well and publishers with high quality traffic will enjoy extended Conversion Revenue payments.

Important Notice: Slider Ads will be automatically enabled for ALL Publishers, unless disabled, starting September 1st, 2011.

If you wish to disable Slider Ads, please follow these steps:
  1. Login to your account
  2. Click "Preferences"
  3. Under "Display Slider Ads" choose "No"
  4. Click "Update"
  5. Repeat this step for each ad spot that you run
Please remember though, that allowing Slider Ads will result in higher conversion revenue and we recommend having them enabled.

Pop Under Ads for Increased Revenue Announced
Tuesday, March 23, 2010
We are happy to announce that starting April 1st, 2010, BidVertiser will be supporting Pop-Under Ads.

Pop-Under Ads are opened behind the active browser window, and are showing up only once per 24 hours per user, which make them completely non-intrusive. Actually, your website visitors won't even see these ads until they're finished browsing your site.

The great news are that revenue payouts for Pop-Under Ads are significantly higher than traditional display ads and our top publishers were making an additional revenue of over $500 per day during the Beta test period!

The revenue payment for the Pop-Under Ads will be listed as part of the new Conversion Bonus payment as a separate row in your standard monthly payment report.

As with the previous Conversion Bonus that we have announced last month, quality of traffic makes a difference in this case as well and publishers with high quality traffic will enjoy extended Conversion Bonus payments.

Important Notice: Pop-Under Ads will be automatically enabled for ALL Publishers. If you wish to disable them, please follow these steps:

1. Login to your account

2. Click "Preferences"

3. Under "Display Pop-Under Ads" choose "No"

4. Click "Update"

5. Repeat this step for each ad spot that you run

Please remember, however, that allowing Pop-Under Ads will result in higher conversion bonuses in your monthly payment, and since they will not interfere users while they browse your site, we recommend having them enabled.

Conversion Bonus Payment Announced
Thursday, March 04, 2010
We are happy to announce that starting March 2010, BidVertiser will be paying its publishers additional revenue - "Conversion Bonus" revenue.

So far, we have been paying the traditional CPC for each valid click, but from now on - publishers with high quality traffic that generate actual leads and revenue for our advertisers, will enjoy an additional Conversion Bonus at the end of each month, as part of the scheduled payment.

The Conversion Bonus payment will be listed as a separate row in your standard monthly payment report.

Now, more than ever, quality of traffic makes a difference - a huge difference. Publishers with high quality traffic (meaning, clicks that also generate conversions) will enjoy an additional revenue that in many cases - may even be higher than the traditional CPC revenue.

In order to enjoy this new Conversion Bonus, keep the BidVertiser Ads running on prominent spots (above the fold) on your website and make sure to use our most popular ad formats:
728x90
160x600
300x250
120x600
468x60
336x280

We look forward to apply the new Conversion Bonus in your upcoming payment!

New Look of the BidVertiser Ads
Sunday, March 16, 2008
You may have noticed that the format of the BidVertiser Ads has been slightly changed. There are 3 main changes applied to the ads:

  1. Title and URL, both have an underline on/off affect while moving the mouse over.
  2. Title, Description and URL can now be opened in a new window or tab when right-clicking on, which makes them more user-friendly.
  3. The BidVertiser brand name and the companion "Advertise Here" text are now blended into one section, appearing in the bottom right hand of the ad.
The above changes have been applied after reviewing requests we have received from our publishers, as well as after analyzing user-behavior.

The control that our publishers have on the ads (colors, background etc.) are kept intact and we hope that this new ad format will work well for both of our publishers and advertisers.

As always, we welcome any feedback via our customer service center.

New Pricing Structure for Referrals
Tuesday, April 17, 2007
Since we have launched our referral program, we have been closely monitoring it and we have noticed that the time frame between signing a new referral and generating revenues from that referral is too long. To address this, and to allow you to generate more revenues faster, we are pleased to announce a new pricing structure for referrals:
  • When a user signs as an advertiser and first spends $10, we'll credit your account with $5. When that same advertiser spends $50, you will be credited with an additional $20.

  • When a user signs as a publisher and first earns $10, we'll credit your account with $10. When that same publisher earns $50, you will be credited with an additional $40.
In addition to applying to any of your future referrals, the new pricing structure also applies to your current referrals that you have not been paid for yet!

How to Control eBay Ads and Set 3rd Party Ad Server
Tuesday, April 10, 2007
For the past months, we have been receiving requests from our publishers to have more control over their BidVertiser ads.

As a result, we have recently added two new features:

1. Display eBay Ads (yes/no) - By choosing "no", you can now limit your ads to only show text ads. By default, eBay Ads are set to display on all sites.

2. 3rd Party Ad Server / URL Forwarding - Allows you to serve your BidVertiser ads from a different domain name from the one registered in your account; Very useful when either serving the BidVertiser ads from a 3rd party ad server or from a URL forwarding service (commonly used in blogs or in a framed website).

To access these features, simply click "Preferences" from your Publisher Control Panel.
