Surfbar Update in Google Chrome

Due to a change in the browser structure, the use of the Surfbar in Chrome 60, as well as other chromium-based browsers, could not be ensured.

The surfbar has been updated for these major browsers and the following innovations go into effect:

  • From now on, the surfbar will be used through the surfbar helper.
  • The surfbar helper opens itself, when the surfbar is started through the dashboard (surf now) or through the discover -button on an interest area (Animals & Pets, Cars & Motorcycles).

Note
: No changes haven been applied to Mozilla Firefox or other versions of Google Chrome.

Our developers will now focus on the development of the new surfbar add-on. Once, the new add-on has been released, we will inform you by newsletter and in our blog.

 

Surfbar Update

After having launched a site update, the surfbar has been restored for the Google Chrome browser. The offline testing was successful but we are currently encountring some minor difficulties on the live system.

Please note that the surfbar can temporarily be started through one of the interest areas.

Example: go to Animals & Pets and click on Discover to start the surfbar.

We are working on finishing the update and will report back once everything has been implemented.

 

Google Chrome Incident

Google Chrome users, who have updated their browser to version 60.0, are experiencing difficulties when trying to add new advertising campaigns or using the surfbar.

Our developers are currently working on a solution.

Until everything is back to normal, we recommend using one of the following free browsers:

Ebesucher Add-on Compatibility

Users of Mozilla Firefox, who have updated their browser to the latest version (54.0 or higher), are currently experiencing difficulties with the eBesucher add-on. Whilst the addon remains installed, it is no longer displayed in the browser interface. This incident encourages us in our aim to develop a new and better add-on. Within the upcoming days, our developers will therefore intensify their efforts in processing this task. We will announce the release of the new add-on via newsletter.

As for now, in order to continue using the addon, you have several options:

  1. Run the add-on in Firefox Portable 53.0. Firefox Portable is a portable browser version that does not need to be installed and which offers the same features as the normal Firefox. You can use Firefox Portable together but not simultaneously with any other Firefox version of your choice.

  2. Uninstall Firefox 54. Next, install Firefox 53 and deactivate automatic updates.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us!

HTML5 Replaces The Flash Player

HTML5 has finally replaced the Flash Player from Adobe and most browsers do no longer support the Flash plugin.

We have therefore applied some changes and optimized the connection test of the surfbar. As of now, we will run a quick test in Javascript which verifies whether the Flash plugin is installed. This allows us to drastically shorten the connection test and to load the surfbar much faster.

A huge advantage for all surfbar users: Most browsers automatically support HTML5 automatically and never require to install any plugins.

Final remark: In order to increase your earnings in the surfbar, we strongly recommend using the eBesucher Add-on for Mozilla Firefox.

New Design And Release of The IP-Suspension

We are announcing two important updates, as we have updated the eBesucher design and released the IP suspension.

New Design

The internet develops at an exiting pace: What has been considered highly up-to-date only a few years ago is now already outdated. We have thus spent some more basic thoughts on the structure and design of eBesucher.

We are confident that you appreciate the new design and would be pleased to hear some feedback!

The eBesucher Design Over The Ages

eBesucher exists since 2002 and has quickly turned into a promising web portal. Take a peek into the past and have a look at our former webdesigns.

Design of 2002

2002

On the 24th of October 2002, eBesucher sees the light of day and starts as a so-called “visitor exchange of the new generation”.

Thanks to an exclusive script and a variety of unique features, the site quickly turns into one of the most prominent marketing portals in Germany.

The demand for internet advertisement is high and despite a layout which at best qualifies as satisfying, thousands of members register within a very short time.

 

 

Design of 2005

2005

With more than 30.000 members, the demand for a professional webdesign increases rapidly.

eBesucher starts an official design tournament, with dozens of advertisers participating. The winner convinces with a layout that was considered as modern and original for its time.

Apparent: The design from 2005 for the first time uses the eBesucher slogan and logo, as well as a color design, which defines the website until today.

 

 

 

Design of 2011

2011

eBesucher has grown substantially over the years and many new features have been implemented. Since 2011, the eBesucher design thus presents itself in a plain outfit.

The navigation was moved in the header, which allowed us to gather additional space for the content area. The main page features a new simplicity and by placing distictive headlines, the subpages have been optimized for SEO.

For the first time, a context menu has found its way into the members area.

 

 

Design of 2016

2016The requirements for a modern website are primarily a good usability and a clear outline. Both aspects have been considered during the remodelling of eBesucher.

Extensive graphic effects were largely dispensed with. At the same time, the design is characterized by a new minimalism, which is oriented towards the latest trends in web optimization.

Whilst the main page has already been remodelled in 2015, the newest design now comes with a fresh header and is completely responsive. This enables the user to comfortably access the portal from a mobile device.

 

 

For time travellers: the Wayback Machine from archive.org allows you to display all the eBesucher Layouts from 2002 until today.

IP-Suspension

The IP-suspension enables an advertiser to receive so-called unique impressions. Applying this feature ensures that during a time interval which is defined by the advertiser, a visitor only gets to see the advertising campaign once.

Until today, using the IP-suspension was restricted to members that have signed up for a premium membership. Ths restriction no longer applies. As before, using the IP-suspension costs 1 BTP per impression and allows the advertiser to optimize his advertising campaign.

The settings for the IP-suspension can be found in the members area, see: Visitors > Manage Pages > Edit  > Costs and Consumption.

IP Suspension

Surfbar Upgrade

We have developed a new feature for the surfbar which allows to display websites that contain a framebreaker in all webbrowsers.

Info

Since websites that contain a framebreaker are disrupting the frameset of the surfbar, they could – up to now – only be displayed to users that are running the eBesucher add-on for the Firefox webbrowser. Since this imposes a restriction for advertisers as well as users, our developers have spent some thoughts on this and have elaborated a simple as well as practical solution.

Surfbar Upgrade

Provided that the surfbar is accessed through the dashboard (Surf now), the user can now visit websites that are loading a framebreaker, irrespective of the used browser. Whenever the system determines a website that loads a framebreaker, the dashboard discontinues the surfing session by hiding the control device of the surfbar.

Next, the website that loads a framebreaker will be displayed as a fullscreen advertising in the browser window of the surfbar. The dashboard acts as a control device and indicates the amount of time that the website will be shown. After the time has elapsed, the dashboard automatically reopens the surfbar and the surfing session continues.

Fullscreen

Besides the dashboard, the new feature can also be accessed through one of the interest areas (Discover), as well as through the surflink options of a shared surflink (Surf now).

New cost structure

As for now, sites that load a framebreaker could only be displayed to users who were running the Firefox Add-on. However, since not all of our users are using the add-on, we were unable to match the high demand from the part of our advertisers. This has forced us to double the costs for advertising those sites.

The upgrade of the surfbar allows us to display websites that load a framebreaker in every browser. This enables us to revoke the regulation of the double costs. Furthermore, since websites that load a framebreaker can only be displayed outside of a frameset, it is required to advertise them as an Entire page. The advertising costs thus do not change. However, advertising a website as an entire page increases the visibility of the advertising campaign.

Advantages

For users as well as advertisers, the upgrade of the surfbar has many advantages.

For Users

  • Enhanced Usability: the upgrade presents itself as a practical alternative to the Firefox Add-on.
  • Irrespective of the used browser, all websites can be displayed.
  • Users that are surfing without the eBesucher add-on will be able to see more websites, this has a positive effect on the earnings.

For Advertisers

  • Websites that load a framebreaker have a higher reach.
  • Websites that load a framebreaker can be displayed in all browsers.
  • Enhanced visibility at the same costs.

Manage Advertising Campaigns Through The API

API

New features of the eBesucher API now allow you to modify specific settings and to request the current data of an advertising campaign. Thus, in order to modify the consumption rate as well as your personal bid and in order to retrieve the number of the received impressions, you no longer have to log into your personal account.

The new API features at a glance:

  • Modify the consumption rate as well as the bid.
  • Calculate the consumption rate as well as the bid.
  • Calculate charged costs within a custom time period.
  • Calculate the received number of impressions within a custom time period.

Using the API is free for all members. The number of API requests can be influenced by signing up for a premium membership.

Share Your Surflinks on Social Networks

The following recommendation goes out to all those who wish to earn more bonus points: Share your surfbar or individual surflink with friends and acquaintances! Keep in mind: ever since we have released the multi-device feature, the surfbar can be used an infinite number of times, provided that each user possess a public and unique IPv4 address. All of the bonus points that have been earned this way will be credited to your account!

Surflink

In order to recommend the surfbar to a friend or an acquaintance, a surflink can be shared easily via a social network such as Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. In this regard, we have released a new feature which makes sharing surflinks on social networks even more convenient.

This is how it works

Enter the members area and go to Traffic Exchange > Surflinks. Here, choose the surflink that you wish to share with your friends. The following website will display the link along with the following buttons to you social network:

google Google Plustwitter Twitterfacebook Facebookpinterest Pinterest

By clicking on a button, a browser window to the respective social network will open. You may be asked to log into your social network account, please do so. The surflink is automatically displayed and you are able to describe eBesucher in a few words. Example:

– “Discover new websites and support me in collecting bonus points!
– “Find out about new stuff on the internet – with eBesucher.com!
– “Discover the diversity of the online world. and support me by collecting bonus points!

Last but not least, you have to publish the post. When your friends or acquaintances access it, they will be directly directed into the surfbar and you will earn bonus points for the websites that they visit. Of course, the post can be shared repeatedly and on different social networks.

Payout

Since many of you have raised this question: There is no limit regarding the maximum amount of bonus points that are eligible for a payout. You and your friends can visit as many websites as you want and turn the points into real money, once your balance amounts to 2 Euro. You can request a payout in the members area, see Points > Payout.
