Changes to “Like this Ad”

October 16th, 2012

We have recently moved this ad menu item into the ad detail. When you open any ad detail, the ‘like’ option will be located on the top right corner.

We figured that this is a more intuitive way, and prevent the ad menu item list from getting longer and longer!

Rank Your Ads Higher

October 5th, 2012

We are releasing this feature to enable users to rank their ads higher for a reasonable cost.

Basically there are 2 top options, one is that it will include the front page and any search results, the other one excludes the front page, which is a cheaper option, yet still rank your ad higher when people come to search on related keywords.

To keep your ad free, just do not pick from any of the top options.

When we say that we will rank your ad higher, basically your ad will be ranked in the top left corner area, as shown in the image below (the white area):

We think this is a logical and reasonable place if you want to make sure people see your ad :)

Ad Expiration Mechanism Updates

July 28th, 2012

There is a recent changes to the mechanism of the expired ads. Expired ads are now viewable to the public as well.

When an ad is expired, the advertiser is recommended to delete the expired ad and post the same ad as a new ad, to keep their ad updated in our website. If nothing is done, the expired ad can still be found by the public, but it will be displayed as an outdated ad. Expired ads may also be clean up by our system sometime in future.

An option to filter out the expired ads is provided in the search settings.

The new mechanism gives advertisers a more permanent advertising effect, at the same time keeping Adveryday ad contents updated.

Automatically Ads Text Perfection

July 17th, 2012

As there are so many types of browsers, platforms available out there to browse the internet, everyone could be seeing the text in the ads differently. In the worst case, the text could be overflow in horizontal or vertical direction.

For this, we have fit in a new feature that can automatically adjust the ads’ text when they are loaded dynamically. Text will be wrapped or truncated if they have exceeded the display area. This correction is consistent across all platforms and browsers, and enhanced the viewing pleasure.

 

Notification to the Past Ads Advertisers

April 20th, 2012

As of our new version of Adveryday, now every new ads will have their expiration dates (from 2 to 12 mths).

The old ads will also be assigned with an expiration date. But how do we decide when is the expiration date for them?

We calculated these expiration date through the creation date of ads. The oldest existing ad will have an expiration date of 6 months, start from 3 Apr 2012. While the newest existing ad will have an expiration date of 18 months start from 3 Apr 2012. The existing ads that in between will be populated proportionally between the oldest and the newest existing ads accordingly.

So much for the explanation :)

Adveryday 5.0 :: A New Day

April 9th, 2012

Finally! A better, and user friendlier Adveryday is here! We present you the version 5.0.

So what’s new? Let me list down some of the major improvements for your reference :)

  • The way you browse the ads
    First the browsing direction has been changed to left-to-right, as if you are reading a book. Not just this, the browsing interface is now even cleaner! Ads are loaded seamlessly from the previous loaded ads.

    The ads are also sorted in a ‘F’ pattern, which is much more adapt to human’s natural reading behavior. Read more about the ‘F’ pattern here: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/reading_pattern.html
  • Improvement on the ads automatically mark read
    Ads will now only be faded off when you selected at least one option from the ad menu, and click away from it. A more intuitive approach.
  • New and better rich editor for your ad design
  • Introducing expiration to the ads
    This is a very important milestone for us. In the past ads are almost permanent, however we conclude that this is not very healthy for our contents. We need our content to be fresh and more up-to-date. This is why we introduced this feature.
  • Improvement on iPhone/iPad interface and usage
    Browse the ads at your finger tips anywhere anytime.

And many other features for you to experience :)

Email Spamming Can Cost Business Loss

August 8th, 2011

All of us received spam mails everyday. These mails are mostly advertising emails that sent to you without your pre-authorization or approval. They are often being sent in bulk, and targeted mass population. People or companies who are sending these type of emails usually intend to gain business/income with less effort or within a short time. This is obviously illegal and less moral.

I cannot be sure that if this is a shortcut to bring profits. But if you are a legitimate company or you really want your business to grow, never try sending this type of emails. If people do not like the email content, the mails could be marked as spam by them manually. And if many people do this, it will certainly change how the client’s mail filter behaves. The next time an email using the same domain or server is sent, the client mail server may automatically filter the email into spam mailbox. This doesn’t not only affect the existing email recipients but also to the new recipients.

Remember, any type of email will be meaningless if they are being filtered and not seen by the recipients. Sending spam mails not only can cause this long term effect, but also defame reputation.

Paid Ad Color Adjusted

August 2nd, 2011

As title, we have readjusted the background color of the paid ad feature, for a better display and visual for everyone :)

Automatically Pick the Category for Your Ad!

July 1st, 2011

This is an idea that we have already came out for sometime, and now it is available!


When you are designing a New ad, the system will automatically pick a suitable category for your ad base on the ad content and keywords. If the system cannot tell which category the ad should belong to, the default “Everything else” will be selected.

We cannot tell you that this is 100% accurate, but it definitely will save more of your time. Moreover, we will improve this accuracy over time :)
