What is daily budget?
Daily budget is the amount of money you allow us to distribute between ad units during a day in exchange for a share of their impressions. You can check this article to understand the topic better: https://a-ads.com/blog/2019-08-11-how-does-daily-budget-work/.

How can I see my ads published on your sites?
Actually, there's no easy way to do it, but it can be done. First, you need to know the sites that promote your ads. Go to your campaign page -> Traffic sources -> Exclude from campaign (e.g. https://a-ads.com/campaigns/34372/ad_units). Here you can see a list of ad units that display your advertisement.

What is goal tracking?
Goal tracking allows advertisers to analyze the traffic sources that bring visitors to their sites and to optimize the advertising campaigns. When you switch the "Goal tracking" option on, A-ADS adds a suffix to your ad link. This suffix allows you to identify the publishers that generate sales for you. You can reward those publishers via the goal tracking API and get more impressions from them. Goal trac

What is quality range?
Ad unit quality is defined by our bot on base of several criteria: site content, length of domain name, errors in html code, rating on Alexa, etc. High quality ad units are those placed on the sites, that our bot liked best. Newly created ad units usually have 0.125 quality by default; those on better domains might have 0.25. After moderation their quality might be fixed. Ad units with quality lower than 0.125 are usually really low quality ones, and you probably don
I paid for a campaign but it doesn't generate impressions
There might be several reasons for that. For instance, your advertisement might be banned or not yet activated (it takes up to 8 hours to verify and approve the ad, although usually ads are moderated rather quickly). Another possible reason might be that your daily budget is too low. Campaigns with daily budget less than 0.00000100 won't spend. Yet another possible reason might be that your campaign doesn't contain enough traffic sources. Also it could be a bug. First of all, please, chec

How to fix a high bounce rate?
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%. This difference is due to the fact that A-ADS is not a pay-per-click network: advertisers pay a fixed daily budget and get a share of all the targeted traffic. Since advertisers don’t pay for clicks, there is no need to filter them. Bad clicks may increase the bounc
