AdView Publisher Program Frequently Asked Questions


General

When a user clicks on the job links via your website you will be paid a percentage of AdView's revenue generated by the clicks. This type of model is sometimes referred to as a revenue share.

There are no caps or upper limits to the amount of traffic you can drive to AdView provided the clicks are valid. View more information on the publisher Terms and Conditions page.

We recommend that you keep an eye on your reports to see how much you have earned and contact us if you have any questions.

When a user of your website clicks on any of the jobs displayed in the AdView Jobbox window, you will be paid.

The amount you are paid per click can vary. We recommend you keep an eye on your reporting dashboard to see how much you have earned over a given period.

To further increase your earnings, we suggest you try our FeedAPI. More details can be found on your dashboard.

The AdView Publisher Program is one of the most competitive job content programs available on the market currently. The cost per click is variable and dependant on the value on how advertisers are paying AdView.

To see how much you are earning from clicks simply log in to your AdView Publisher Program dashboard.

Absolutely. You can use our tools on as many sites as you like although we do recommend you create yourself individual channels to track each site and product placement individually.

A full of range of channel reporting can be found on your dashboard.

Creating custom channels allow you to track the performance of individual product placements across your website or some case multiple websites.

You design your own custom channels in whichever ways are most meaningful to you and use them to view the performance of AdView Publisher Program's tools.

Benefits of using channels include: measuring the performance of the AdView's tools for your site to maximise CTR; the location of AdView content on your website such a landing page or left side vs. right side; how another domain you own is performing.

Page views indicate the number of times your AdView jobs have been shown to users on your website. Until a user clicks an actual job listing you will not be paid unless you get more than 1,000 views. (see What is eCPM? for more information.)

Payments

AdView currently uses bank transfer or Paypal.

Unlike other programs who pay every quarter, AdView Publishers are paid monthly provided as earnings reach the payment threshold of £50.00.

If your account balance has not reached the payment threshold at the end of the month, earnings will roll to subsequent months until the payment threshold has been reached.

Captured
The status Captured means that the sent clicks have been credited into your account and someone will review and process the payment. The highlighted amount will be transferred to your bank or PayPal account and can take up to thirty days.

Settled
A payment with the status Settled means that the payment has been processed and the amount has been transferred to your bank or PayPal account.

Cancelled
This status notifies Publishers that they shall not receive remuneration due to clicks which are deemed to be artificial or fraudulent. View more information on the publisher Terms and Conditions and Program Policies pages.

Refused
The status Refused appears when the financial institution refused the payment. The most likely reason for refusal is incorrect payee information, though there could be other reasons depending on your selected payment method. AdView is not always informed of the refusal reason by the financial institutions. When AdView does receive a reason for refusal, this is visible to you in your account.

Rollover
The status Rollover means the amount owing to the Publisher is less than fifty GBP, in which case the balance is carried over to the next calendar month. View more information on the publisher Terms and Conditions page.

Information required
The Information required status will be shown when the payee information is incomplete. The publisher needs to review and update their payee information.

Terminologies

AdView also uses eCPM which is the effective cost per thousand page views. eCPM is an industry standard using page views per thousand to measure earnings on your publisher account.

Paid clicks are generated from your users via any of the AdView Publisher Program tools such as the FeedAPI, JobBox window, Searchbox and Text Links or Banners. Also, Paid means paid to you.

Detailed reporting on all paid clicks is available via your dashboard.

Page views show how many times AdView job offers shown by any of the tools within AdView Publisher Program appear on your website.

CTR stands for Click Through Rate and is simply a ratio used by publishers and advertisers to show how often people who see your ads end up clicking on them.

CTR can be used to gauge how well your ads are performing. For instance, if you get 100 page views with a CTR of 10% you will be paid for 10 clicks. But it also means 90% users did not click so a higher CTR is better than a low one!

Each partner using any of the tools within AdView Publisher Program will be assigned a unique ID reference know as a publisher ID (publisher identification).

If you want to know what your publisher ID is, please visit the FeedAPI menu under the "Request parameters" section via your dashboard.

Technical

There are numerous cases that can cause this error. Depending on the error message, it can be related to one of the issues below:

Invalid psd value: This issue usually happens when the tracking code is not included in the page. The tracking code is a small piece of HTML code that includes the JavaScript tracking file. If the tracking code is placed correctly and loads the script without any problem, then you need to check the links mousedown event. There should be a JavaScript mousedown event handler for each link. Also, each of them should contain the code that is returned by the FeedAPI in the onmousedown field.

Invalid publisher ID: This error happens when there is no valid pid parameter in the URL. You need to make sure that you are using the right URL that is returned by the FeedAPI.

Invalid psrc value: This error happens when there is no valid psrc parameter in the URL. You need to make sure that you are using the right URL that is returned by the FeedAPI.

Invalid ptkn value: This error happens when there is no valid ptkn parameter in the URL. You need to make sure that you are using the right URL that is returned by the FeedAPI.

Invalid ptms value: This error happens when there is no valid ptms parameter in the URL. You need to make sure that you are using the right URL that is returned by the FeedAPI.

The expired URL means the tracking parameters carry old values and are not valid anymore. This situation happens when there is a long gap between the API call and the click. To avoid that you should make the API call only when a user sends a request, and you should not store the returned results in the database to serve them later.

Usually, this error happens when one of the tracking parameters has an invalid value but before that make sure there is not any Invalid URL error message when you validate the link. The wrong value in the tracking parameters can be the source of this issue, so you need to make sure you are sending the right value for user_ip and user_agent when you make an API call. The value of these parameters should be matched with the IP and browser agent of the user who clicks on the link.

Many times you have values in the URL that you wish Jobbox could read, then subsequently update, showing users different content based on their URL criteria.

For your users convenience, Jobbox allows you to dynamically change its content based on a user's current query.

For instance, you might want to change Jobbox’s content when a user is browsing marketing jobs or when the location changes. All this can be achieved through Jobbox’s dynamic URL binding.

For more information on how to use this dynamic URL binding, please refer to our Jobbox Dynamic URL Binding guide.

There are numerous cases that can cause this error. Depending on the error message, it can be related to one of the issues below:

The selected publisher is invalid: This error occurs when there is no valid publisher ID parameter in the widget configuration. You need to make sure that you are using the correct Publisher ID, which can be accessed in your AdView account under the ‘Jobbox’ menu.

The selected channel is invalid: This error occurs when there is no valid channel parameter in the widget configuration. You are only permitted to use channels which have been previously defined in your AdView account.

If you are using a dark background, It is recommended to enable the Light logo option, which displays the AdView logo in the desired manner.

Any Channel considered to be valid in AdView Jobbox plugin once you have defined it in your account.

By default, the widget looks for the keyword variable in the URL to extract the user searched term, and will return the related jobs based on this value. It is the same behaviour for the area, and looks for the location variable in the URL. You can overwrite these variable names by providing an alternative in the ‘Keyword’ and ‘Area’ variable names. As an example, if your URL structure follows the pattern below, you can overwrite the default variable names by setting the ‘Keyword’ variable name to mykey and ‘Area’ variable name to myplace.

http://example.com/?mykey=KEYWORD_VALUE&myplace=LOCATION_VALUE

This plugin uses the WordPress widget for displaying the jobs list. Before using the plugin please make sure your current WordPress theme can handle widgets. Then, all you have to do is add the AdView Jobbox widget onto your site.
