Backend Frontend Updates Tomorrow

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on November 13, 2009 at 12:23:57 AM
We're testing some new features to make publisher's lives easier. We'll be adding a new feature to the frontend to allow publishers to add global variables to all ads they have. The best use of this is for adding generic default keywords if the specific ad doesn't have any.

Along with that feature, we'll be doing some updates (code overhaul) to the backend to bring enhancements and fixes. We love hearing from publishers, your feedback is always welcome. Use the email address on the adcode page to send an email to us.

Minor Errors Happening - Fixed

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on September 29, 2009 at 10:03:45 PM
We are aware of some issues from the data provider side of things. We're working on stabilizing everything with them right now. Hopefully the problems should clear up soon. We'd love to rush the problems away, but it is out of our control since it isn't Adnet that has the problem. It will be fixed soon.

Edit: Looks like it is all cleared up.

Backend Update Today

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on May 11, 2009 at 11:15:32 AM
A new update has hit the production area for the backend of ASE Adnet. This update was in staging for over a week without issues but if any publisher notices anything strange, do not hesitate to contact us. The major visible thing that this update does it to hide all the variables sent by ASE Adnet so no one can switch them around. Also, this takes care of old links that lose money from being expired. Older links will now redirect to the shopping page so the publisher can get credit instead of not making money at all.

New Provider Is Live

Posted on March 21, 2009 at 10:02:59 AM
All ads have been updated to provide enhanced data from the new backend data provider. In addition to the new CPC provider, Storm is ready to be used as well. Storm ads can be generated in the normal Ad Code section. We are updating all the guides and creating new ones this weekend to give publishers information on what the changes are and how to use the new functionality. There is another update that will hit staging soon to provide enhanced data for the UK region as well.

Teaser Update Tonight

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on March 16, 2009 at 11:21:34 AM
ASE Adnet will be rolling out an update to provide the new shopping page as well as a new delivery system for enhanced banner ads. This new delivery system is called ASE Adnet Storm (or Storm, for short). Storm will only show CPA ads and the new system will be using Amazon and provide a very good revenue share of 60% or more, depending on how many items are sold in each period. With Storm, ASE Adnet will be allowing all publishers to join and show ads from the Storm delivery system.

While the adgen will be updated to support Storm, it will not be available for use until the end of the week. This is just a teaser. Mid week will also usher in the new primary CPC provider.

Big Update Tomorrow, March 13th - Updated

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on March 12, 2009 at 9:47:22 AM
Friday, the 13th, will bring a rather large update to the frontend and backend systems at ASE Adnet. We are moving the new primary CPC data provider into production and pushing out new shopping pages along with a host of other new features for ads. All guides on ASE Adnet will be rewritten and new guides will be added to explain new functionality.

We have example PHP pages as well that you can download to see how things work and even upload them to your own server for testing. This update was a month in the making.

Edit: Unfortunately, this update will have to wait till mid next week due to reporting glitches on the data provider side. We will have a teaser page up tomorrow to show off the quality of the new data, though.

Shopping Page Change

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on March 8, 2009 at 2:49:48 PM
The new update to Adnet will usher in a new primary CPC provider and with that comes a whole host of changes. You can still retain your shopping pages by pointing the include to http://www.aseadnet.com/shoppingold.php instead of shopping.php. This can be changed on your include pages right now.

The new shopping pages are much more in-depth and provide a wealth of information to help people with their purchases. New guides will be released soon on how to integrate the shopping page onto your own domain.

The planned update should take place on Monday or Tuesday. There will be no changes needed for live ads. New features will be added for live ads soon that you will probably want to update them sooner or later.

Content.ase.cc to content.aseadnet.com

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on March 6, 2009 at 1:33:32 PM
In addition to the new server, the main domain for ads will be switched from content.ase.cc to content.aseadnet.com. All current ads pointing to content.ase.cc will continue to work without issue.

ase.cc was being used to provide a smaller sized url and to leave out the term "adnet" in the domain, but ase.cc is now on adblocker's lists. When the new code is released on Monday, the adcode generator will be using content.aseadnet.com.

You can easily switch to using content.aseadnet.com right now, if you wish. The domains are aliased together.

Content1 Move This Week

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on March 2, 2009 at 4:37:29 PM
There will be a complete server move of Server1 this week. Content1 (content1.ase.cc) is on Server1. The new server will be better, faster, and stronger.

There is no planned downtime for live ads. Before the move, DNS will be updated to point content1 over to Server2 so there will be no issues with ad serving. After all the testing on the new server is complete, DNS will be updated again to point content1 back to the new Server1.

Edit: The new server is undergoing testing right now. If everything checks out, the DNS switch will probably happen on Friday and the total switch on Saturday.

Emergency Update

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on November 24, 2008 at 3:17:23 PM
There will be a critical update to fix a problem that has been happening with the US data provider. Certain merchants weren't paying for clicks, but don't worry, ASE Adnet was paying its publishers for all clicks sent. Adnet took the hit, not you.

We cannot continue this anymore and have identified the merchants responsible. They will not be shown anymore until they can start paying again. Ads might show a store or two less than normal since they are still being listed, but removed on Adnet's end.

This problem will be fixed by next week.

As expected, the roll out has been completed early. Oceania will now be shown CPC ads. There are a few new markets for CPC coming soon so please check this news area often.

There will be updates to the guides very soon.

Half Rollout Tonight

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on October 28, 2008 at 1:27:29 PM
There will be a partial rollout of the new CPC market codebase to Server1 tonight. That means that half of your readers will be seeing the new codebase. No changes need to be done on your end.

In addition to the new code, we'll be updating the guides to creating and using the adcode since there are a few new features. There will be updates to the simple styles as well a day after the entire backend is updated.

If you notice problems, make sure to take a screenshot of the error. Everything helps.

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.

Reminder: Code Update Tonight

Poster: Aron Schatz
Posted on August 2, 2008 at 8:58:16 PM
This is just a reminder that the backend for ASE Adnet will be upgraded tonight to provide additional features and to lay the groundwork for future redundancy. The update should go smooth and I expect no downtime during the update. There may be a few second of slowness, but nothing major.

Update: The code update is done ahead of schedule and everything seems to be working fine. Please let me know if you notice any errors or other issues.
