The ASE Adnet front end site will be brought in line with the latest codebase from the Version 4 development site. There are many new features that will be added to enhanced the CMS portion.

A forum will be added for publishers and to allow comments to be posted on the news/articles as well. There are a myriad of other improvements. My primary machine was upgraded to Kubuntu 8.10 which seems to have a regression in the Samba CIFS package. This bug is holding back development work for the time being.

As an aside: If you are using Kubuntu, stick with 8.04 for awhile.

I've finally released the auto increment campaignid. You are free to select whatever ID you'd like to use for a campaign up to 65535. You are limited to 2500 total campaigns now. Your old campaigns will not change and everything will be the same if you don't do anything.

Tracking Update Complete

The tracking system has been updated to provide source details. The click counts are correct for today and on, but the view counts will be wacky until tomorrow. If you leave the source on All Sources, the data will be the same as you are used to it. Tomorrow will be the first full day of proper source tracking. Remember that ASE Adnet's tracking system uses UTC.

Source Tracking Tomorrow

ASE Adnet believes in transparency. For this reason, a new addition will be made to the tracking system to allow you to drill down what revenue sources your traffic is seeing and clicking on. This additional will increase the data available to you to make better choices in the way your placements perform.

The update tomorrow has been tested on the development server, but there may be errors in tracking tomorrow. Anything should be temporary.

Front End Update Successful

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

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.
