Update: International CPM Reporting

Here's a quick update on our first reporting of international CPM earnings: Our first processing is taking a longer than originally anticipated and we expect results to be displayed by noon Pacific Time tomorrow/Thursday. Look for the new and improved MyWidgets page as well.

As we go through our initial processing -- and getting our own first look at actual rates being paid by advertisers -- we feel it's important to set some expectations and provide some perspective for our publishers prior to Thursday's reporting. To be as transparency as possible here, initial CPM rates paid to publishers will likely be characterized as "low." And in some cases, we're finding advertisers are not willing to bid on ads being displayed to visitors from certain regions. As a result, we can't guarantee CPM revenue will be earned from traffic from those areas.

As an emerging ad network (WidgetBucks launched Oct. 2), advertisers are still getting comfortable with us, and as we build credibility with them, we expect CPM rates to improve and less rate fluctuation to occur.

Again, we appreciate your patience as we offer this solution. We continue to work toward evolving functionality for our network, whether that's working with global merchants, creating more targeted CPM campaigns by country and/or category, or other solutions.

Do you have any kind of approximation on what the rates of the CPM ads?

Octavia said...

i am from india i cant see any Impressions, Clicks, Click-Rate, RPC, Revenue.

how do i see this.

|oVeS said...

i'm frm singapore,after update the new code i cant even see my widgetbucks ads frm the usual place where i place my ads. Whats going on?

Daniel Larsson said...

'Ioves', I can see your ads, don't worry!

I think it has to do with the country-ads switch that you should see CPM ads since you are surfing outside the US/CA and this is being implemented tomorrow morning.

Also, 'Octavia' the impressions are delayed as mentioned in the post. Read first, post later!

I cannot implement the 'revised' ads into my blogs?? WidgetBucks said they had updated the code which is much much shorter than before & now it doesn't even work? + no stats whatsoever on 'MyBucks' page??

Can anyone tell me what's going on?

Christopher said...

it has been a couple days now and my ads still have not reappeared since updating the ad code. Please respond.

Radu said...

In your post, i can see a printscreen with myWidgets, but myWidget does not look like yours, i can not see the tabs with Widgets, CPM Ads, Referrals. I am from Romania and i had renew the codes.

ph03n1x said...

I dont understand, at the blog widgetbucks announced that new my widgets page will be upgraded at Wednesday but today is Thursday but nothing happened :S

This is the second week of the october and our bucks didn't updated yet. At the website they says when your money increase to 50 bucks the next month your bucks will be upgraded.

Nothing happened again..

I'm start to be hating from widgetbucks...

Shocker said...

I ask again, are Non-English sites accepted now?

By the way, I just recieved my WidgetBucks check throug snailmail :)

|oVeS said...

daniel> u can see my ads? I see nothing at all not even a box or watever. No impression no clicks all r zero.

Rick said...

Can't wait to see the new features etc!

rador said...

The new look is very good, but i have some problems..

In My bucks i still dont have anything for October

And please how much can i earn of CPM ads??

Cobra said...

Come on man,
135,362 Impresions -> Revenue $0.48

135 CPMs -> 0.48$ ?
0.003$/CPM?
That's not low...that very low...
i'll give it a try for the next days...but if it continues like this, it's a waste of time...

saree said...

im sure my visitors are clicking and are intersted in the ads.. but ? i cant see any clicks..
i think there is a problem with widgetbucks..
600 impressions and 0.08$ only?
i know a site that gives 4-3.5$ per 1000 impressions.
i hope you fix it.
thanks alot.

Matei said...

What about the click's from the non-north American traffic? Will they get paid?

Jeromy said...

My stats show zero impressions, what's the deal.

Daniel Larsson said...

Looking VERY GOOD! Now we just need UK/Europe included in the Widget-ads and a little better CPM rates and we are good!

Daniel Larsson said...

Saree PLEASE tell me what site gives $4-$5 CPM and I will love you!

Cobra said...

I was hoping at at least 0.30$/CPM...not 0.003$...

tebrino said...

I currently see $0.04 CPM, which is lower than crappiest networks out there.

Lex90 said...

2000 impressions so 2cpm and ive got $0.02.. Whats the deal? Also, i suddenly got only $0.80 for 10 clicks on desktops.. Normally its closer to $0.25.. Guys, What GIVES?

|oVeS said...

Sanju said...

i am from india. i can see that some impressions are made(in terms of numbers) but no revenue is being generated from them.

Sandeep said...

Hi!
I recently joined Widget Bucks.
Here are some of my observations:

After a day or two my earning balance showed 0.28 cents. But now that earning seems to have vanished from the reports!

I have a mix of traffic from across the world and my websites are receiving hundreds of impressions per day but that does not seem to be reflected in your reports. This could be because I added your code recently and your reports are behind by a couple of days.

What kind of payments can be expected for CPM Ads as well as CPC Ads?

Thanks & Regards,
Sandy

Ankil Sanghvi said...

@ widgetbucks :Nice changes guys.Keo it up !

blessedchristian said...

just want to know what fraudelent click you have detected to terminate my account i need further explanation. because i never click my ads because of your international rule. im from the philippines how can i click my own ads please make some review.http://blessedchristian.weebly.com and noypi.zoomshare.com im just started out.my site are new so im also a newbie.please consider! thanks widgetbucks.

haidi said...

hi i can't see the CPM impressed after lot of traffic come to my site with widget.

SlickR said...

WOW reading some comments I realize what a bunch of fucking retart idiots (excuse my expresion)but its true are using this ad network. If you don't read the updates and/or email morons why complain? All ur fucking ads are showing.

Anyways everything works great, GJ widgetbucks!

Someone4U said...

Hmm..
Nice changes there guys...

The adcode changes, etc everything is going good for me.

However, I am SLIGHTLY disappointed with the average CPM rates.
For me, it is around $0.25 CPM. That's $0.25 for each 1000 impressions. I am still testing it though..

Good luck WB guys.. and wish you success

Glenn said...

What a low CPM...

Impressions: 1,538
Revenue: $0.05

Hope it will increase soon, else I will have to leave WB...

Widgetbucks is great, I saw the picture of you guys giving some dude a big cheque, can i get 1 when i reach my payout ;)
im liking the idea of CPM ads, widgetbucks is getting better and better every day, have voted for u to win open web awards!
you can see how the ads are on my freebie site mopages.co.cc. they look decent. And with regards to payouts im sure they'll improve soon - theyve just launched CPM ads give it some time!
//\\//\\(())
p.s. CPM ads are displaying zero for me but banners display, but am happy with CPC earnings theyre good. and like i said im sure cpm ads will sort themselves out *hopefully...and p.p.s i like the widgetbucks shirts!

saree said...

this site gives 3.5$/CPM
http://pay-ads.dr.ag/

have fun! ( and it also supports paypal )

Armands said...

I agree CPM rates are way too low.

|oVeS said...

this is weird how come u all can see ur impression generating while mine i haf at least 100 visitors coming but yet my impression is still ZERO. WAT IS GOING ON!?!

madbigt said...

Widget team why do i have no impressions still, zero across the board.I have updated the code twice. I am about to give up. I have sent emails to your support team and have not heard anything back what gives?

Dennis said...

I was having a problem with widget ads but after the upgrade and a reinstall of the ads all is working well

Dennis said...

Can you tell me why I don't see the referral in my bucks and why there ia not a current value of my bucks? My ads are working well. motorhometraveltips.com

Matei said...

Impressions Revenue
3,514 $0.01

come one man give me a breake...

Team WidgetBucks said...

All - I've just published a post that addresses many of the questions asked here. http://widgetbucks.blogspot.com/

I'll also work on getting to questions unrelated to cpm.

Barnabas said...

saree: the site you mentioned is only gives CPM for countries: Australia,Austria,Belgium,Canada,Denmark,Finland,France,Germany,Greece,Iceland,Italy,Netherlands,New Zealand,Norway,Portugal,Spain,Sweden,Switzerland,United Kingdom and United States. - No Hungary...

by the way still something else is rotating instead of the usual widgetbucks header on my page, no impressions and clicks generated what is quite strange because I had quite many visitors yesterday and the day before. check it yourself: http://magyarbeteg.blog.hu

Bikes4sale.in said...

I have an Indian website - www.bikes4sale.in

I cant see any impressions or CPM rates,

Kerkenez said...

my impersions not seen there is possiblty to be cheat that widget

mogenius said...

regarding Saree's post, that site is wierd it causes redirection when i try putting it on my pages, but pays well, ive reviewed the highest paying CPM/CPC networks (appart from adsense) on this page:
http://mopages.googlepages.com/ads

p.s. Widgetbucks is 2nd on my list :)
//\\//\\(())

blessedchristian said...

will still give my earning after you terminate my accounts?

NLSL said...

Can you see the Widget in my blog?
2refresh.blogspot.com
The code it's right but I don't see the Widget.

mogenius said...

I've implemented pay-ads.com on www.mogenius.co.cc
could someone tell me if it causes page redirections?
you want to join/find good CPM/CPC companies i recommend www.bestads.co.cc

Christensen's Marketing said...
