To fully utilize the AdFluke network, you are required to have either a blog or a website. Also make sure you have a working email address so that we can update you on any changes that would take place in the site.
First visit our page web.adfluke.com to access your dashboard.
You will then be redirected to your dashboard panel if you already have registered and logged in. If not you will have to sign up for a new account.
You will be required to input your username, email address and password. After accepting you will be prompted to log in to your dashboard.
Once you are on the dashboard panel, the first thing to do is to register your site for approval. So click on sites >> Add site. A popup window will show and you will be required to add site name, site theme, and ads which you would like to show on your site.
There is an option of choosing to link your traffic source. This would give you a higher chance for your blog to be accepted easily. After confirming click save.
You will then have to wait for your site to be approved by the administrators before starting adding banners on your site. Site approval take between 1 to 5 days.
If your site has been accepted to publish ads by AdFluke, you can immediately start monetizing your site by adding a banner.
Visit your AdFluke dashboard on web.adfluke.com. Once on dashboard, click on Sites. You will see your accepted site. Then on the right side you will click on Ad unit tab. You will be redirected to a new page where you will then have to click on Add ad unit tab. You will have the option to either choose Banner Ad, Text Ad, or Mobile Ad.
Depending on your prefference you can choose any of the three but for this tutorial we will choose the Banner Ad.
A popup window will show up and you will be prompted to add Ad unit name, banner size, and minimum cpc and cpv. Make sure you choose wisely since using higher values will mean less or no ads will be shown on your blog. The optimum value is 0.01 for cost per click and 0.15 for 1000 views. The site will automatically bid for you depending on the best ads.
If you have any third party code you can place it on the Translate stub code in order to have 100% fill rate.
Once the banner is saved, you can copy paste the banner code and paste in anywhere on your site widgets
When registering a new site on AdFluke network, you will be warned that the system recognises www site and non www site as two different site. This is because if you mistakenly choose to add a www prefix on your site and yet its not, then the AdFluke network would not show any ads on your site.
It is important to make sure your site chooses the right prefix. If you do not know if your site has either of the two then you need to do the following.
First open your browser.
Input your site url address and load.
Once on home page, click the url bar and try to edit your site url link.
Hover to the start of your url that is http:// or https://
Now you will see how your url address strats. It will either be www.site.com or site.com
