Last week I introduced y’all to Pay Per Play advertising from Net Audio Ads and told y’all that they would start playing ads on Friday, February 1st. Well, it’s now February 4th and my sites have yet to serve a single ad. Apparently they’re doing a “slow rollout” of the ads only serving them to some websites immediately and then slowly adding more sites over the next 30-60 days. There’s no word on what system is being used to determine who gets ads and who doesn’t though.
The good news is that despite serious problems with their stats reporting everything in that department seems to be worked out at this point. My stats even seem to be accurately reflecting my page views which is more than I can say for some recent program openings. So now it’s just a matter of them getting enough ads ready to serve to my pages.
I’m still up in the air on Pay Per Play ads as far as wether or not they’re going to be a long term solution to my revenue needs. I like the fact that the ads are contextual just like Adsense, but I’m concerned about forcing audio on my visitors. Overall, they’re still earning a neutral rating, so check them out for yourself.
