Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Comicad Network wishes you happy holidays.
This year, it's been quite a journey, one year ago this site was just an idea, since then, it's been a daily non-stop effort, and next year the journey continues...
My Account update
It's now possible to sort each individual column on ads, bids and exchanges lists.
New search input for ads page.
Search input bug fixed.
Ads list is now descending by default.
Account Landing page statistics
Again a new update for account landing statistics.
Now is possible to get two lines on the charts by using the toggle links below the charts, a blue one is the statistics from targeted ads (bids/exchanges), the green one is from auto ads (ads that automatically display on free slots across the network).
Default mode is the sum of both (a single blue line).
Smackjeeves no longer offers custom templates, thus it's not possible to place custom ads there anymore.
The users that have smackjeeves publisher sites will have to update the main url to an alternative location in order to continue serving ads.
The advertisers with ads pointing to smackjeeves may have more luck because the redirects from the old addresses seem to be working, so no action is required.
Account Landing page statistics
Auto ads are now included in 4 of the 6 quick statistic charts of account landing page.
Charts now reflecting auto ads are "impressions", "views", "clicks" and "CTR".
Those charts now display the sum of targeted and auto ads.
Alternate Urls: one month later...
Unfortunately alternate urls permission wasn't set for regular users (despite we have announced it one month ago).
They are now available for all users.
We're really sorry for the inconvenience.
Introducing ALTERNATE URLS
A new option has been added to the sites section called Alternate URL(s). Once your main website has been approved, you can edit it and now see a tab called "alternative urls."
Alternate urls allow your site's unit codes to run on other urls referent to the same comic/product/service.
Please note that sites like Tapastic and WebToon do not allow users to host ads on their pages...yet! ;)
You may submit several urls at once for approval.
Once approved, your ad units will run on your main-site(dot)com and your alt-site(dot)com. Be sure to add your ad unit codes to your alt site's html too.
You can have up to 2 alt urls for each main website you add in the sites section. We hope you enjoy this new option.
Comic profiles information bar has been improved
Now with a more straightforward approach, the information bar includes the content that was hidden before, such as the last 7 days chart and the current month statistics.
Available on the site and ad unit profile pages.
COMICAD.NET Info Card
Ads now display on all Comic Fury alias urls
Comic Fury provides several alias urls for every comic hosted with them:
Despite you choose only one, all the other domains are available for that given comic.
Now ComicAd Network ads display automatically on any of the domains specified above, as long the registered domain at ComicAd matches one of the domains from that group and the name of the comic in the url is the same.
Registered url at ComicAd: "mycomic.cfw.me" will have ads run on any of the following urls:
"mycomic.cfw.me", "mycomic.webcomic.ws", "mycomic.thecomicstrip.org", "mycomic.the-comic.org", "mycomic.thecomicseries.com"

Start as Outbid. Comicad.net website update! :)
Hello, we updated comicad.net recently and have enabled some new features. What are they you ask? Well, we'll tell you. Let's start with the most exciting.
Start as Outbid bids.
Users can now start a bid as an outbid. This means that you can now bid below the winning amount on ad units/slots in hopes to become the higher bidder later. Users can set a time frame like normal, then start a bid as an outbid by bidding lower than the winning amount. If the current highest bid expires, or is canceled, and your bid was the second highest, you'll become the highest bid and your ads will begin to run.
It's kind of like a bid in waiting. This way you can set bids and leave them be for awhile. Eventually you may be the higher bidder. It is still good to manually bid and beat bids by raising, or bidding higher than the current winning bid, but now users have even more options.
Keep in mind the minimum amount required to start a bid as an outbid is $0.01.
All other comicad.net updates are quality of life changes. Things that make the experience smoother, run faster etc.
