How can you explain that ads were displayed only 13times but then clicked 25 times.
Are the site visitors coming to this Publishers blog only to come click ads? The funny part is that when you visit the publisher's site to look at the ad placement, you will now see the ads at the footer of the site.
So visitors get to this publisher's site, scroll all the way down to the end of the Publisher's site just to click ads without engaging with other content at the top of the site.
If you were a member of our accounts team and saw this stat, will you suspend or leave the account?

Welcome aboard Alamin9582. Share your thoughts on my last post and let's move on from there.
Yesterday, I had a discussion with a Nigerian blogger and I believe that discussion needs to be had with other bloggers too.

In my little time of working with NG Adverts, I have learnt a lot and I have also seen a lot of things that needs to be fixed in our ad network ecosystem. So I'm going to try to list the much I can and also update this post as I remember or encounter new issues.
1. Bloggers' Impatience
Blogging is a business and it requires patience for it to grow. Ask any blogger that's doing well today and they will tell you this same thing. So if you don't intend to give your business time and watch it grow over time, just simply find someone to work for and stay on salary.
2. Impatience With Indigenous Ad Networks
As we all know, when it comes to ad networks, the major competition are the companies abroad which includes Google.
Have you ever thought of how much is wired out monthly from Nigeria in advertising revenue to these companies abroad?
That money being wired out is enough to create massive jobs in Nigeria; but what do you see, bloggers are busy writing negative reviews about Nigerian ad networks even when they have violated the Program Guidelines set by these networks. You forget that these reviews only encourage local and international advertisers to use the service of the ad networks abroad.
Before you will say that I am biased on this issue because I work with an ad network, listen to this; as at the time of writing this, you will not find any negative review on the web about NG Adverts. That's to tell you that we have been consistent with paying our Publishers who keep to our rules.
So when you see a genuine company that is poised to pay you your earnings, it is your patriotic duty to help it grow. I'd rather have a local Nigerian ad network not pay me than one abroad after I have published for them and I'm sure I didn't violate any of their terms and conditions. If this ever happens, I will see my effort as my donation to help that company grow than to start writing a negative review.
The worst about this matter is that some bloggers just copy other bloggers' negative reviews without investigation; how dumb can that be?
Nigerian bloggers stop killing genuine Nigerian businesses with your reviews; we are all in this struggle together. I am not trying to make any excuse for ad networks with a track record of none payments, I'm just saying, there are better ways of handling matters like this.
I will rest my case here. Do share your thoughts with me on these issues I've raised so far. Show more
