How To Set Up Performancing Ads Exchange Ads

It seems my post about the Exchange Ads system by Performancing Ads raised as many questions as it answered. People are excited about the possibility of making money and getting free ad exposure on the new ad network. However, they’re confuse as to how to set up the exchange and how to book their exchange ads on other sites.

Performancing Ads really does need to improve their FAQ and add more details on how their system works. I’m sure they will be doing that soon, if they’re not doing it already. Their number one concern was to get the network up and running. In the mean time, their lack of detail information is allowing me to write some great exclusive content. 😈

How To Set Up Exchange Ads

Setting up an exchange ad is the same as booking your own ads. In the Publishers section of the Performancing Ads control panel, click on “Exchange Ads” and then the “Create New” button. Select your 125×125 button to upload, enter the URL where you want to ad to point to and choose the categories that best fit the ad and hit save. That’s it.

You can upload as many exchange ads as you want. You don’t need to limit the ad to your own blog either. If you wish to promote something else, you are free to do that. In my above example, I am running my blog ad and a Performancing Ads referral ad in the exchange. Performancing Ads will rotate the ads evenly among my credits.

How To Book Exchange Ads

You do not have to book where your exchange ads shows up. This is all done automatically. The Performancing Ads software finds the best matches for exchange ads based on the ad category and the site category. Once you’ve uploaded your button, the system will take over and exchange your ads with the most targeted sites.

Since Performancing Ads gives every new publisher who signed up 2,500 exchange ads credit, everyone should be taking advantage of this by uploading an exchange ad. If you haven’t uploaded an ad yet, I recommend you do so now.

        Hi john,

        I did read your post, I just hope they have a better support than feedburner and google does. I lost all of my subscriber from yesterday up to today, I guess performancing ads will not allow something like that happen in their network. Cause this could be really frustrating.

    2. Wow, that’s a funny comment.

    Is there any way to see how many credits you currently have? I’ve searched the site and I can’t find a figure. Am I missing something, or is it simply hidden?



    1. John Chow says:

      There are not stats at this time. However, it will be added later.

    John isn’t using Performancing Ads to sell the 125×125 ad spots since he has no problem selling all 8 spots privately for $500 a pop! He has however posted about how its still a great network to be a part of for the free advertising simply by being in the marketplace as well as the exchange ad systems.

    John will end up making more from the affiliate earnings than most of us would by selling ads! Good job John! πŸ™‚

  8. Thanks John for making this easy for us

  9. So do you get 25,000 credits for signing up or 2,500? In this article you said 25,000 but in the current article it’s 2,500.

    1. John Chow says:

      All new publishers get 2,500 free credits that they can use right away. I made a mistake when I said it was 25,000. I’ve corrected the article. Thank you.
