Yippy!

PayPal? We'll send you a cold hard check if that's easier. PayPal is only one option of getting paid.

To tell you the honest truth.. I have no fucking clue what is going on except that I can make money somehow and if I can make money then I can get some new stuff since my computer and programs are getting out of date. I still can't figure how to get the API ad program going, it won't work right for me.

April Earnings: $0.79 Rich as FUCK.

Hey Tom can you make it to so g-bot or p-bot PMs us when a new flash by our favorite flash/audio artist is released? Losers like me don't use rss. :(

I've made zero dollars in an hour... Out of curiosity, how many pennies does someone make from one click of an ad?


Ye

Response to Rev Share and RSS 2009-04-15 15:13:54


Are earnings right now based on ad impressions or ad clicks? Because I'm having a hard time believing that with over 8 thousand impressions on my userpage, nobody has clicked any of my songs besides one, and that there were no impressions at all for 5 days in a row.

Tom, I love you. While I won't be dropping my summer job, this means that during college seasons, I don't have to take up as much part-time work, but can instead concentrate on flash, like I've been wanting to do more for quite some time now.
Thanks so much, man!

Is this the NG ads I've been using for like a year? I don't want to sound like a dick, I genuinely can't tell what we're talking about.

+If y'all are jokin over like 30 cents everyday, I don't know if I should even mention how much I've got from this. Serious duckets yo.

I believe you will have to measure that in fractions of a penny everytime someone clicks an ad. Like Tom said, this is not life-changing or even day-to-day-changing money.

This might be a better way to think of this: You now have the option to enroll in a Newgrounds class: "Internet Advertising 101" with Tom Fulp as your professor. (As an aside, please direct any problems you have to your teaching assistant, PsychoGoldfish, LOL.)

Now, in this class you will learn that clicking on your own ads over and over and over again does absolutely nothing. Also a valuable part of the lesson plan is how you need to start thinking in terms of thousands of clicks. That means if you go about your day to day business and drive legitimate traffic to your user page and Portal submissions by creating good content, then you'll find the money starting to add up.

But you have to be vigilant. Thoughtful posts, good dialogue with commenters, and an attempt to make your Newgrounds userpage your home on Teh Interwebs could help you earn some extra pocket money. Anything less and you'll probably take a year to earn a T-shirt.

The graph only tracks items that have either made money or had at least 1000 impressions. The chart only tracks things that have made money... So taking that under consideration it hopefully makes more sense. The ads are a majority performance-based, so clicks and/or sign-ups.

For those curious, here it is again:

And swell news about the revenue system. So does that pretty much make the Flash Ads thing redundant? :P

Out of interest, how do you go about dealing with customs charge for international purchases? Kinda sucks when you win some store credit to get some free stuff only to have to pay about half the cost so you can actually have it.

The stats we get from the ad company are filtered so we can import them in less than a week. We only get stats if you made any monry, o if you have gotten 1k+ ad impressions. Without this filter, the whole system is just a big clusterfuck... you just have no idea!

So how do you put in a advertisement on your userpage?

The new revenue page includes Flash Ads revenue from the ads you have been putting in your Flash for the past year, but it also includes a rev share on ads that appear on your pages here on NG. Since you were using the Flash API system, you were part of a test group that was secretly earning money throughout March, so when you view your March stats, you should see User Page, Flash Portal and Audio Portal earnings in addition to your traditional "Flash Ads" earnings.

the ads are already on your userpage. You get a share from the in-page ad that's always been there. Youre welcome :D

Customs charges suck... Dunno a solution for that since it's down to the individual countries and what they charge to import stuff. :(

As for the Flash Ads being redundant - it is still VERY beneficial to implement Flash Ads in your Flash. They generally perform MUCH better than the ads on pages, and they go with your Flash wherever it goes on the web - which generally works out a lot better for games, since the movies just get ripped to YouTube. If you are making something that has any chance of spreading, Flash Ads bring a lot of upside. Some people put them in movies that get 10,000 views and the results are disappointing. Other people put them in games that get 100,000 views on NG, then 2,000,000 views across the rest of the web, and those numbers start to add up.

This is great! I love the interactive viewer, I missed it when you removed the old one :P

I love the new look! And finally a button on the Account page, that helps. This system is perfect!

I'm so popular, $0.05 off my userpage >:)

Thanks!

I wouldn't mind something like this. It's certainly useful on sites like Deviantart and Youtube, and would be handy for those wanting to keep track of their favourite artists without glaring at the portal in vain hope. And like DA you could have it alert about an artist's news posts, including ones not posted to the front page. It's debateable whether it should go in a seperate segment to the Inbox, though.

I see a White box where the ad space was. Is this the space your talking about or the one just under how meny stickers I bought?
