Alternatives to the Blackberry Ad Services

Hi All

 

937,720 requests
9,960 impressions
1.06% Fill Rate
218 clicks
2.19% CTR
$0.13 eCPM *
1 applications
Revenue: $0.37 * * Current Days Revenue and eCPM are not included.

 

These are the stats and revenue I am currently generating for my app using the Blackberry Ad Services.

 

Is everyone else having similar rates to me?

 

If you are using a different Ad provider for Blackberry, please can you post us the name of the ad provider and what sort of stats and revenue you are generating so that we can optimise the amount we are generating with our apps on the Blackberry network..

 

Together we can try to find a better advert services provider which is an alternative to the Blackberry Ad Service

Any help would be appreciated if you've managed to get this working on BB10, but I'm guessing you didn't do this yourself?

Re: Alternatives to the Blackberry Ad Services

Wow, the numbers are not very encouraging... I've been having issue displaying the adds from my BB10 app... I did contact the hel desk, and the only answer they gave me was a round of stat's which indicates that adds are been rederred but in the end they never display on the device...

Anybody have the same issue ?

Re: Alternatives to the Blackberry Ad Services

When I wrote my app 'Free Light' and added BB ad service, the ads displayed on my dev alpha.  Now that I have a Z10, I don't see any.

Re: Alternatives to the Blackberry Ad Services

I am developer newbie, especially as far as advertising goes.

 

Can we incorporate adsense into webworks apps? Any issues we need to be aware of?

 

And I assume it is okay with Blackberry to use advertising services besides their own?

 

I recently submitted some apps with advertising, basically as a test. It's only been a couple of days, so not a ton of downloads, but not a single impression listed. And based on the numbers being mentioned here, it's like people are being paid pennies for relatively decent download numbers? Or am I misreading things?
