Major Changes Brewing

Discussion in 'Co-op Advertising Network' started by digitalpoint, Dec 19, 2004.

    There are going to be some major changes going on with the ad network, the biggest of which is I'm going to be opening the ad review system up to selected members to help with the process of reviewing pending ads. If anyone is interested in helping, please let me know. It's all going to be voluntary, there is nothing to gain from it and you still won't be able to review your own ads.

    Ads are going to have stricter guidelines. For example, ads that are all lowercase will not be allowed any longer soon.

    Revalidation is going to be a little more complex on the backend to prevent cheaters (for example, there will be times when Google's cache is used to determine if ads are there, rather than the site itself, which will prevent cloaking). There are going to be some other things as well...

    Going to spend some time documenting the specific guidelines.
    SEMrush
    Individual ads are all going to be classified. This will allow the ad network to easily be split into various groups as it grows.

    Anyway, just a heads up and looking for reviewer volunteers.

    Hey Shawn, I'll help out for the time being... do you think the changes that are going to be implimented will help those of us that seem to have hit a temp set-back, possibly b/c of the co-op links?

    will the classification system allow pharmaceutical websites to be allowed to the coop? I really hope so.

    Happy to help. I had been wondering how you coped with the ad approval process and had assumed you had help already. If not it must take a huge amount of time for 1 person.

    PS Made a $250 donation - how do I get updated?

    I look forward to this, some of the capitalization and grammer on the ads is a bit bad (which reflects on the site they are placed on)

    Look forward to the new improvements!
