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.

UK High End CPA - Sunday

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...

High Quality International CPA Soon

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.

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.
