Sometimes our advertisers are unhappy because they see extremely high bounce rates for A-ADS traffic. Tracking systems might show a bounce rate of up to 99%, while the bounce rate for other networks might be something like 25 - 70%.

What is the minimum daily budget I can set?
A-ADS has no minimum daily budget, you can set any amount that suits you, but note that the amount would have an impact on the connected ad units, expected clicks, and impressions. We recommend setting a daily budget higher than 0.00001 BTC, because due to the rounding errors and probabilistic nature of our algorithms it might not be spent, or could be spent without a result.. The larger the budget, the longer the campaign and wider the targeting - the more predictable results.
How do I optimize my traffic?
In our experience, it’s best to deactivate the ad units that don't work for you and run some experiments, meaning using a small daily budget to test the rate at which traffic will convert, using different settings, then making a decision on how you configure your campaign, based on the results of your experiments.
