Option to set a minimum connection speed

Dear eBesucher member,

We have yet implemented a new feature for every premium advertiser and sponsor. eBesucher now allows you to filter those IP addresses which fall below a manually defined connection speed. Whenever the connection speed of a surfbar user is too low, the website that is promoted through the traffic exchange may not be able to be displayed completely, this can have an effect on the website statistics, as well as on the statistics of the advertisement partner.

If you choose to define a minimum connection speed, please enter the members area and click on ‘Traffic exchange’ and ‘Manage pages’. Next, choose the respective website and click on ‘Edit’. The ‘Connection speed’ -section lets you define the minimum connection speed of the user that accesses your website. If the connection speed does not meet the demands, the user will not be able to visit your website.

Note to all users of the traffic exchange: Please make sure that you leave enough bandwidth for the traffic exchange. If your connection speed meets the demands of most advertisers, you will benefit of a larger pool of websites that can be displayed and you are less likely to run out of ‘active websites’ when using the surfbar. Do also keep in mind that even if your bandwidth is quite large, the effective connection speed can be very low in case your internet connection is used for a variety of activities.

Filtering of IP addresses which are located on a blacklist

Dear members,

With immediate effect, we now offer all our advertisers and sponsors the opportunity to filter those IP addresses that are listed on a DNSBL blacklist. The goal of such a blacklist is to collect IP addresses whose devices are infected with malware. This can be relevant for advertisers, since in terms of page load times and the average quality of the impressions, the traffic originating from those IP adresses can be below average.

We have however decided to not completely exclude such traffic from our service, since the terminal device (pc, laptop, etc.) can often not be assigned to a specific IP address. Especially mobile internet connections (UMTS and LTE), corporate networks, as well as hotspots and wireless Internet connections, which are usually connected to several devices and where the IP address can not be assigned to a particular terminal device, are affected of this. In addition, after an initilal registration on the DNSBL blacklist, IP addresses often remain listed for weeks, as their status is not being reviewed very often. When taking into consideration that a dynamic IP address is regularily assigned to a different user and device, the DNSBL Filter ultimately blocks legitimate traffic from accessing your site.

We therefore believe that every sponsor and advertiser should decide for himself, if he wants to ban IP addresses which are being listed on a blacklist. If you choose to activate the filter, please access the members area and click on ‘Traffic Exchange’ > ‘Manage Pages’, then access the website of your choice and click on ‘Edit’, choose the ‘Browser-Targeting’ -TAB and activate the field that blocks IP addresses which are listed on a DNSBL blacklist.

Raise of the minimum amount of transferable points

The minimum amount of points that is required to perform a transaction has recently been raised. The new limit is now at 200 MTP (mail exchange points) and 2000 BTP (traffic exchange points). We hereby intend to relieve the server by restricting the interface traffic on slightly larger transactions.
We hope that the current solution is acceptable and thank you for your understanding.

New features for the traffic exchange

Dear eBesucher member,

Today, we have implemented an update for the traffic exchange. After an extended testing period, we are now ready to release three new features.

1. Scroll page content

The fade-in effect “scroll page content”, ensures that the advertised page in the surfbar automatically scrolls from the top to the bottom and from the left to the right. Any website with a lot of content can thus increase the visibility and present more content to the visitor. Whoever values that large parts of the website are being displayed within a short amount of time, should consider activating this option. The additional cost for this feature is only 0.2 BTP for each impression. Have a look at the sample video.

Scroll page content

2. Fullscreen advertisement: Turbo-Mode deactivated

As an alternative to the former feature, a webmaster can now also request having his site displayed as a stand-alone advertisement. In this case, the turbo-mode will be deactivated and your site will be advertised exclusively, no other website will be promoted. Please note: Since your ad will take over additional advertising space, double time costs must be charged when using this feature (costs for promoting the website * 2)

Fullscreen advertisement

3. Advanced visibility test

The advanced visibility test is a further measure that aims to ensure a consistent stream of high quality traffic. If this feature is activated, our system will use the HTML5 Visibility API in order to assess whether the page is displayed within the visible area of the visitors screen. The impression will only be counted unless the visibility test delivers a positive result.

Advanced visibility test

Those new features will be available to all premium members and with immediate effect. In order to apply the changes to your site, please enter the members area and click on ‘Traffic Exchange’ –> ‘Manage Pages’ then go on the respective site, click on ‘Edit’ and choose the ‘Page-TAB’ in order to apply the changes. We look forward to your feedback and hope that the extensions will be a benefit to you.

Some important features, such as a new interface, are set to be released in the near future!

Converting To A Different Form Of Organisation

We hereby want to inform our members that our business, which has formerly been acting as a one-man-business (Evgeny Anisiforov e.K.) will be transformed into a limited liability company (TurboAd GmbH). Turning our business into a limited liability company will bring more security to our users and customers, through the subscribed capital stock and applicable legal requirements. It goes without saying that the limited liability company is the legal successor of the individual company and will take over all current business relations and contracts. Nothing will change for our customers and members.

Please note that this process is solely a change in legal form. The owner and staff will remain the same and everything will continue as before.

Best regards,
Your eBesucher Team

 

eBesucher is now also available in French!

Dear eBesucher member!

Our community grows at a rapid pace and is gaining worldwide popularity. After an enduring but careful translation, we are happy to announce that eBesucher will now be available in the French language. French is one of the most widely spoken languages and the official language in many countries.

The translation enables members from French speaking countries to use our service more efficiently, as many functions and opportunities on eBesucher should become easier to understand. In this regard, we hope that we will get the appropriate feedback and the eBesucher will continue to grow in France and other respective countries.

Cease this opportunity and refer new members to eBesucher! Do you have friends or acquaintances who speak French? Refer new members and we pay you a lifetime commission of 8% on the earnings of your referral. You now have the opportunity to advertise your personal referral link in French speaking countries. Your personal referral link: www.ebesucher.fr/?ref=USERNAME

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Geo-Targeting improved

We have implemented a minor but nevertheless important update: The Geo-Targeting function has been improved – within the traffic exchange, you can now define the origin of your hits in percentages! For Example: At least 43% of your visitors should come from the US, not more than 12% from Norway and the remaining hits from any other country.

This extension allows you as an advertiserto weigh the countries in the traffic exchange. Despite the focus on a particular main country (e.g. Germany), it is possible to define one or moresmaller countries in order to reach out for a more elaborate dispersion of your visits. On the other hand, we also expect that more active sites will be available in the surfbar.
