New feature: revenue sharing model


Anonymous Ads uses amount of globally unique impressions as a major metric to determine publisher's share of advertising budgets.

If ad unit doesn't generate globally unique traffic, its share is 0 and it displays only our default "Your ad here" ad (that is useless in this case anyway).

We decided to change this behaviour and to display ads for affiliate programs instead. They are still displayed for free but at least there is a chance that they earn affiliate rewards.

Thus advertisers can get traffic for free and pay for real customers only.

If you are an advertiser who is interested in such a model - please drop an email to contact@a-ads.com.

Language detection algorithm changed

According to current stats ~80% of visitors are English speaking, but only ~20% of them originate from English speaking countries.

We decided to increase the accuracy of our language detection mechanism. New algorithm ignores Accept-Language setting if it not consistent with geoip data.

The stats accuracy is expected to gradually improve over the next 7 days.
