Re: Ads Services eCPM -- um...ZERO?

Here goes my mini lesson, when your Banner object is added to the screen it makes a request for an ad, if an ad is returned it is known as "fill". So the fill rate is calculated based on the # of ads filled vs the number of requests made. If no ad is available you can choose to display your placeholder or leave the space blank.

Okay, I understand that now.

 

Is there actually a way to detect when this has happened (no ad) so we can remove the Banner rather than have either our placeholder image or a blank space?

 

(Edit: sorry for the off-topic post. I'll start a new thread if I have more followup questions.)

Not today, but it has been requested.

Re: Ads Services eCPM -- um...ZERO?

Is there a way to get the house ads back? I'd rather have something there than nothing at all.

What is your app?  I'd like to take a look and see what it looks like without an ad.  In general people don't like ads, so unless you can generate $$ it is better not to be showing ads.  Gives them a break from seeing ads all the time.

You could always use a place holder and display whatever content you'd like in the event no ads are available:

Re: Ads Services eCPM -- um...ZERO?

Has anyone reached $10.00 for the generated revenue and how long has it taken them to reach this amount?

It may also be helpful if as many people put their total stats as a post so we can all take a look at what is going on.  The lowest eCPM I have ever seen with other ad services was $0.03  .... this system should do at least that...is it?

The month of March BB fake apps werent around. So I am starting to get impression.
