Wow in the last couple of hours I’ve had a flurry of emails going back and forth from my Kontera rep. Since August we’ve been trying to figure out why I haven’t been getting as many impression on my blogs as I should have been getting. Seriously … I’ve only been getting 25 to 30% of the amount of impressions that I should have when I compare it to my html based website.
I’m still not sure if it’s due to the Kontera plugin I’ve been using or not. So over the weekend you might see more Kontera ads or perhaps even none at all as I experiment with a different plug and or add the codes manually on my own.
What I like about the plugin that I’ve been using – Lucia’s Kontera Control – is that I can decide exactly when the ads show up in any of my posts or comments. The new plugin that Kontera just created allows the ads to be blocked from certain categories but that’s forever … we don’t necessarily want or need them blocked forever.
Ideally if I could get the plugin that I want to work, to work properly, I’d not have Kontera in any of my new posts for a few days (that was how I had it set up originally) so that my regular readers could be ad free. As it is it’s set to show Kontera in all posts, excluding two categories, right away … but since something isn’t working quite right there aren’t too many ads showing up. So I guess it shouldn’t be too irritating for my regular readers, but it’s still not set up quite the way I want it to be.
Hopefully I’ll get this all figured out over the next week and I’ll soon have more Kontera ads showing up when and where I want them to show up. I hope!
