    Advertising (learn more)

    Advertise virtually anything here, with CPM banner ads, CPM email ads and CPC contextual links. You can target relevant areas of the site and show ads based on geographical location of the user if you wish.

    Starts at just $1 per CPM or $0.10 per CPC.

[co-op seems broken] What are alternatives?

Discussion in 'Co-op Advertising Network' started by vinyl, Mar 28, 2009.

    Those are NOT facts (I dont want to accuse), but it SEEMS that:

    1) Ads are not validated for quite long - many people have "pending review" for weeks/months, including me
    2) Stats aren't working after mid of Jan
    3) Removed links are still being rotated
    ..and certainly something else, too.

    Those things arent OK, cause we all know that wrong link strategy can bring as much harm as benefit, aside of the fact that, under those conditions, we all give space to what kind of links, expired ones? ;-(

    = I need COOP alternative, unfortunately. [ Ill definitely give DP some time to tell us all whats happening, but if that doesnt happen (VERY) soon, after years of being member in coop, Im gone. ]

    SO, question is simple: what services do you know, that work in the same way as DPCoop? (free to join, coop, seo-friendly, php-include.. ) Only one I know is Link-Vault, and Im quite sure that DP was the site that inspired them (as they went online like a month or so after DP) = they don't count.
    Are there others?

    + of course, is there any explanation coming from the developer(s)/staff about whats going on? (cause my thread is just one of many on this issue, so maybe i missed something)

    Thanks!

    ViciousSummer is one the persons responsible for approving ads but she is strangely adamant that there is nothing wrong with the co-op ad network...

    Unfortunately there is no alternative. All the others suck big time, mainly because they don't calculate wait based upon impressions, only by page rank and indexed pages.

    Unfortunately there's no decent alternatives... I looked around and like hasen said, they all suck.

    Maybe if the COOP becomes a paid service, all of us would benefit

    It's hard to find a good alternative.

    So there's nothing else out there that pays for link weight? I have about 100k in weight that I'm not using, and I'd like to get something for it.

    So, coop: dead/sued, and nothing better than Link-Vault?

    If eBay lawsuit is the main reason behind the current coop situation (where nothings works + where theres not a single explanation FOR MOHTS!!!!!), I will first be glad to go away, cause its stupid to even think of staying on network that, even if owners didnt silently abused hundreds of thousands of sites, didnt say a singe word, but not about lawsuit, than about total-feature-disaster!

    No, the admin of the co-op is still around, they are just ignoring it for some reason. There are dozens of people who would volunteer to keep the co-op going, but Shawn seems determined to let it die.
