Hi There,

 

did anyone else than me installed AdRally

(the Company who bought Corona and offer its own Mediation / AdNetwork)?

 

I will soon share my Experience, but would be interested whats your Experience.

Hope Im not the only one who is testing it out.

Thanks

Chris

Chris - there are several other developers testing it out, but not many yet. We are still testing things out and working out the kinks.

a few words, even though its very early:

 

- good support

- I love the ad zones

- Android: rather low eCPM, BUT not enough impressions to judge

- iOS: great eCPM, with only 2 days being live (almost 5$ from start on).

 

so the first impression is very good.

I didn't know this was available. Is this open to everyone? I don't see AdRally listed on the plugins page.

elbowroom - it is not yet widely available. We are still in a beta stage. But it will come soon.

just to let you know: eCPM is between 5-6$ easily on iOS.

 

We will probably go with AdRally for our next big project.

wow, that's also a great ecpm for android!

 

regarding admob: have been using it, but got very low ecpm. but i didnt have a lot of impressions, so hard to tell.

but if adrally gives 5$+ on both platforms, its great to go with for sure.

Do you have any comparison with Chartboost?

My eCPM with Chartboost is about $2+ monthly average.

hi ingemar,

 

android chartboost:

 

2013-10
Google Play
100,318
200,329
326,728
18,167
5.56%
188
1.03%
$238.71
$0.73

 

so a eCPM of 0.73$ for 330k impressions in one month. But usually i get a 2$ ecpm with chartboost.

maybe 2-3$ on ios.

 

 

so as it seems right now, adrally outperforms chartboost, at least for me. but for sure i really do need more impressions with adrally :)

 

yesterday i hit an ecpm of 8$ with adrally on ios, so its like 6$ now on average. if it stays like this, awesome.

android went down a bit, its more like 2$ on average.

 

maybe some others have some stats too?

Thanks @dingo.

It looks promising. Once AdRally goes live it looks like something I should seriously consider.

the only Problem I see for now with AdRally.

 

It shows me nice eCPM from around 5$

BUT, at the same time i see Dau/View Ratio from around 5:1 ... so what in my case would mean (only one fullscreen per day)

a fillrate from 20% !!!!

 

Even if it gives better ecpm with this fillrate. Applovin for example gives me 4$ but with a much higher fillrate.

Therefore overall Profit is still better with AppLovin as it looks like.

 

This I/We have to consider.

 

how is ur experience in that?

Ok, checked again..

 

seems with AdRally i have a 3:1  DAU/VIEWS what means for me a 30% Fillrate.
 
At AppLovin I had 4.92$ ecpm with 100% Fillrate, compared to AdRally 5..49$ ecpm with 30% Fillrate
 
Therefore I get a 492:164 or a exactly 3:1 Applovin:Adrally PROFIT!!!
Dont come blind with high eCpms, Fillrate is also very important.
 
Whats ur experience?
 
Therefore I have a big Question to Corona:
Will u give us now a AppLovin Plugin, or because Corona came bought by Fuse (AdRally) we can completly forget about.
 
For ur Users, us, it really looks we would have a great Deal also with AppLovin. 
 
Hope U give an answer.

Greets

I agree. Filtrate is very important. Do you know the distribution of your users? 

For example do you get 30% filtrate even for users in North America? The low fillrate reminds me of iAds.

hi guruk

 

i have 1.2 views per DAU.

but maybe you deliver much more impressions?

 

but yes, basically a mediaton ad network should be able to deliver a 100% fill rate....

Yes should be I have 80% Users from US Will See, i switched back to 90% Applovin to see if my theory is right . If not would loose around 35% income ! Really hope corona offers soon a applovin plugin And for testing Adrally gives a minimum 90% fill rate

To clarify, DAU/View does not equal fill in AdRally. DAU is collected from the startSession callback while views are collected directly from our ad partners.

I understand,

but in my case its exactly like that:

 

App Starts (StartSession) and ONE Fullscreen per Day.

Therefor I can say exactly how many Requests and how many Impressions...

 

So here its StartSession = Request ... and as its not more than one Fullscreen ... one FullScreen = 1 View.

so its a great indicator for FILLRATE :) True or not :)

 

And even I would be the happiest about... its just 3:1 ... Three AppStarts give me one View.

We've opened up the AdRally plugin forum.  I'm going to move this to the forum.

Guruk -  DAU/View is not a reliable measure of fill rate within AdRally. In the case if showing 1 ad a day, unless you show an ad at startup (highly recommended) it is entirely possible to experience a session without experiencing a view. 

 

AdRally does not currently offer any visibility into fill rate, this is however something we will certainly look into for future releases.

tlong thanks for your answers.

 

i think its really important to know the number of ad requests, or at least to have the chance to use another provider when a request fails.

 

we do not need to see a 100% fillrate, but need to have options to get a good revenue.

@tlong: how can we know that we are not "wasting" any impressions? eCPM is great so far, but what about fill rate? I would love to at least be able to fill up with different ads.

 

thanks!

Do you mean there's no callback when there are no ads available?

That's a serious flaw in my book. I find it difficult to believe that they can have 100% fill rate in every market. I don't have to see the actual filtrate recorded anywhere, but I expect to get a callback when an ad request hasn't been able to be filled at least.

I guess i need to correct my statements after reviewing the plugin.

 

adrally.checkLoaded()

 

if none is loaded, we could show an ad from a different provider.

 

So the question is only about the fillrate now :)

Phew, that's a relief! With this news AdRally is back on my to-do list once the plugin is available.

 

@dingo

Just a quick question. Is the AdRally plugin you're testing part of the ads.* API, or is it separate?
