Results on Binkx Adhoc Network

So the results are in on how the Blinkx Adhoc network operates. Although the process for adding the ads and posting the ad enabled video is simple and easy, there is a major problem with the amount of communication from that goes on between the network and the site while the page is loading, causing a major load time delays.

As for payout, you'll get somewhere between 3 and 4 cents per click. Not bad considering the starting price for advertisers on the network is 5 cents.

Another issue is that some of the video posting sites will actually strip out the ads before displaying the video on their site making it a lot less "viral" than other networks.

All in all, its a interesting development that may be suitable for sites with only one video per page, but is not viable for video centric blogs that will display a number of videos at once.
