I only see My-Kannada Ad Network banners...

We only display My-Kannada Ad Network banners on your site until we have received and processed your banner. Once we process your banner, you'll start seeing the banners of other members. We process banners within 72 hours of receipt so, barring any problems, you should see member ads soon. If you don't start seeing member ads within 72 hours, please let us know. During the interim period between signing up and submitting your banner, your account will accumulate credits for every person who visits your site. My-Kannada Ad Network banners show until your banner is submitted and approved at which point, all of the accumulated credits will be redeemed.

Where is my banner?

Banners are displayed essentially at random on any of our members pages . In general, your banner is scheduled to appear on the next appropriate site after you get a hit to your site. If you want to see the statistics for your banner, you can view them in the Member Stats Section.

What is the chance that the banner network will be showing a paid sponsors ad on my site?

We don't always have sponsor ads running, but when we do to cover our cost for this FREE service. Usually our ads shows up according to the following ratios:

  • 60% member ads
  • 30% combination of sponsor ads (if any), more My-Kannada Ad Network ads, or more member ads
  • 10% Informational ads
We guarantee that members will always receive at least a 3:2 exchange ratio.

What exactly is a credit?

A credit is the unit we use to measure your banner advertising. Each time your page receives 3 visits, you earn 2 credit (3:2 ratio). As soon as you earn one credit you are immediately scheduled to be advertised on another member's site.

How can I get more credits?

If you want more exposures, visit our Extra Credits page.

How many credits does my site have to earn before my ad is displayed on other sites?

One. As soon as you earn one credit (3 visit to your site counts as 2 credits), you are immediately scheduled to be advertised on another member site. If we don't have your banner (GIF) on file, you will accumulate credits until we receive your banner, after which your credits will be redeemed for exposures on other sites.

What is a click-thru?

Click-thru is a ratio comparing the number of times your banner has been viewed on other sites to the number of clicks that your banner has received.

So, if we advertised your banner 5000 times (5000 exposures) and 50 people clicked on your banner to visit your page, you would have a 100:1 click-thru ratio.

How can I improve my click-thru?

The key element that affect click-thru is the banner design.

Banners that use humor and those that have plenty of information do best. Experimenting with different banner designs can help you decide what types of banners are most effective.

Remember that click-thru is not the only measure of performance in banner advertising campaigns. For each display of your ad, regardless of its click-thru, you are still receiving valuable exposure for your site, your business, and for your brand.

Why is my web counter showing a different number than my stats?

Each Web counter uses different methods to count up visits. Some web counters discount multiple consecutive hits from the same IP address, and others only count one visit for each IP address per day. Therefore, you will often find that different web counters give different results. We measure how many times the My-Kannada Ad Network code on your page has resulted in the loading of a banner.
