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.
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.
Comicad Network wants to hear from you!
Hello comicad network users! As you know we are a brand new comic advertising network. Emphasis on the new, which means we are growing more and more each day. More users, more ad types, and more features. Sometimes there may be a feature that our users would like to request, or an issue that pops up. Well, don't hesitate, contact us asap and we'll see what can be done about it! Simply put--
We would like to hear from you!
So if there is a feature you'd like to see on comicad.net, a glitch or bug you found, a frustrating limit of some kind, or anything of that nature, feel free to get in touch with us. You can report a glitch here or contact us on our contact page.
Creating an AD is easy on comicad.net. Simply click on the "create an ad" link from our homepage, or go to the "ads section" in your user account. Users must be logged in to create ads.
Expect all the formats you know and love like the 160x600 skyscrapper, banner and button ads. We also have a new responsive ad. Responsive formats stretch to 100% width of an HTML DIV container. This means it can be set at a custom dimension, no restrictions. Watch out, sometimes a responsive ad can be very large, depending on the location it's placed in. Feel free to contact us if you need any help with ad sizes.
Did you know about badges?
Users can earn badges to display in your public profile and user account page. These badges act like achievements and are awarded when certain conditions are met. There are plenty to earn, even some really oddball ones.
Can you get them all?
Note from developer
This website system is brand new, it's a big pile of code, so there might be some issues floating around.
I ask a little of patience if you see any error on the page. Please use the contact to report it.
The balances are not affected, so it's more statistic counter errors, outdated units and some missing quota transactions (hopefully solved by now).
I apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for helping us test/improve it.
It's FIXED! :)
EDIT: The issue has been resolved! Thank you for your patience and understanding!
We are working on this issue, and have temporary disabled the "add funds" page for a short period of time. This will not affect anyone who has added funds already and those users can continue to bid. We will post an update when the issue is fixed.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding.
What are AUTO-ADS and AUTO-BIDS?
Auto Ads are free ads that can run when a user sets their ad slot(s) to "$0.00." By default, all ads are eligible for being displayed automatically on available free slots across the network. Users must have created at least one ad in their account in order to be apart of the auto ad rotation.
AUTO BUTTON BIDS
There are two methods for bidding/exchanging:
- The main search/user profile "Auto" buttons: bid/exchange with just two clicks.
- The "comic profile" page: Reach this page by following the links on "main search", "user profiles" or "main page", and fill the form in order to bid/exchange.
The main difference between the two methods is that auto buttons will choose one ad for you (the most recent), on the other hand, by using the form, you can choose the ad yourself. As long you don't want to choose a different ad/amount/period, auto buttons will do. You can configure auto button values/behavior on your profile settings.
To learn more about auto-bids and auto-ads, please read the USER GUIDE.
