To welcome in the new backend system, a new simple ad style has been added. It is a 600x250 sized single product ad. It has the unique ability of showing rating star images instead of a text based rating.

This is all done using CSS and there is new CSS classes to make this happen. The guides will be updated soon. Check out the new simple style.

Adcode Generator Updated

The adcode generator has been updated to provide the base for the new CPA ad system. As you can see, there are many improvements. When the new ad system is updated on the backend, you'll be able to see what other countries see on your own site using the new smoke test feature.

As for now, the generator will only do the normal CPC ads. Once the backends are updated, everything will come together. Updating your adcode with the one provided by this new generator will ensure a better transition over to the new ads. There are some new geotargeting options to really help target ads.

This means that ASE Adnet will not be showing your alternative adcode since we can pay for all types of traffic. If you notice any problems using the new generator, please let me know.

I almost forgot... there is a new simple ad layout for 300x250 and it looks great. It is a single product unit, please check it out.

New Simple Styles

As promised, there has been an update to the simple generator to provide enhanced layouts for current styles and a few new styles as well. The brand new size is 600x200 which is a single product unit and it looks great.

The only thing I couldn't test is how it looks in IE7 so please give me feedback on that angle. You'll need to hard refresh the adcode page to grab the new javascript.

Once again, if you want additional styles, just let me know and I'll do my best to make it happen.

New Banner Styles Soon

As publishers join ASE Adnet, their requirements for custom banners change from site to site. There are a few nice new styles that will be making their way into the simple generator.

Expect new styles for 728x90, 336x280, and 160x600 at the very least. These will be in addition to the current styles. There will also be modifications done to some of the current simple generated styles to fix some minor things. It will be a CSS update, so if you used the simple generator, you won't need to update your code to get the fix.

Expect the new additions on the 4th.

More Ad Sizes

I see the benefit of adding new sizes to the simple generator for publishers that cannot make use of the advanced functions of ASE Adnet. I'm pleased to announce the addition of two new large format single ad units.

In addition to the new ad sizes, these new format have extra information including the store rating and the merchant logo image. Users of the advanced generator can now receive this information by setting the new option of "Show Extra Fields" to yes in the generator or adding the variable "var aseadnshowextra=1;" to your code. I'm in the process of creating and updating the guides for the simple and advanced generators.

I would also like to add that the 125x125 and the 180x150 ad units have been updated. The new look is great. I will add new link only units soon to the simple generator so please send me the sizes you'd like to see the most.

Thank you for being a part of ASE Adnet.

I'm please to announce enhancements to the simple ad generator that most people use to give you more options at your fingertips. You now have the ability to select what font you want to use for your ads using the simple generator.

Remember that the advanced generator gives you full control over your ads using CSS.

The simple generator also has two new ad sizes that show a single product, great for product reviews. The new sizes are 450x160 and 400x100 and are noted with "(S)" for single.

The simple generator now shows the selected colors by the options. The "Chart" link is now a colored box you can click on. If you manually enter a hex color, it will also show in the box.


A note; if you ever find any bugs or problems, please don't hesitate to contact me. If you need any help with anything regarding Adnet, shoot me an email.
