Very low fill rate

Hello,

 

 I used this service last year and the fill rate was already low  (around 30% if i remembered correctly). Now i reactivated my app 2 months ago and it is at 2% fill rate...

 

Am i missing something ? Is there any way to improve this ?

Re: Very low fill rate

Well for example for this month i have : 

226,437 requests
5,051 impressions
2.23% Fill Rate

 

This seems really really bad ...

So i was wondering if there was something to be done to have a better fill rate (maybe an option/configuration somewhere I missed ...)

The best thing to do is to look for alternatives.

The reason behind low fill rate is that Millennial Media and Jumptap left BB Advertising service. So no one serves ads for your requests.

 

Using BBAS: for July I have 9 mln requests.... and $6 revenue. LOL.

Re: Very low fill rate

Good to know, I was about to include some ad's into some of my free apps but it doesn't seem worth it at all.
