Nuffnang Reveals Click-Rating System

This week alone, there are 20 different campaigns running concurrently on the Nuffnang network involving thousands of blogs. That being said, some bloggers tend to get repeated ads week after week and some receive ads in a lower frequency in spite of the network ad revenue growth for the past year being 90% month after month.

The truth is many factors affect a blog’s selection in being delivered a Cost-Per-Unique Visitor ad, among many is the ad placement on the blog and whether a blog is Glitterati or not.
However, another very very important factor that advertisers look at is often the historical click-through ratio that a blogger gets for a previously run campaign on his/her blog. The more clicks and the higher the CTR that a blogger gets, the more likely that a future advertiser will choose to run a campaign on the individual blog.

I just received an email that I have been selected for an ad campaign; what do I need to do?

  • The email that we sent to you is just a notification to inform you that you have been selected for an advertisement campaign. All you need to do is to ensure that our Nuffnang codes in placed in prominent locations on your blog and wait for the campaign to run on the date stated in the email. If your blog has a bad ad placement as is found to drive a very low CTR, advertisers may withdraw the ad from your blog.

I am running an ad campaign on my blog, but have no earnings.

  • Firstly, do check your email if you receive any notification about incoming CPM advertisements, or check your Buffered Earnings under Earnings if you have any new mCPM campaign running for that particular ad unit. If you have, the campaign is running and the earnings will only be credited when it ends.
  • If there are no email notifications or any new mCPM campaigns in your Earnings section, then the ad that you saw is a CPC campaign.
  • CPC campaign - Launched on advertisers' request. Will show on all blogs under Nuffnang network which have 'Show Global CPC Ads' selected under their Blog Preferences in Blog Manager which are not serving any CPM campaigns at the moment it is launched. Pay bloggers based on the number of unique clicks by their blog's unique visitors on the ad unit which is displaying the CPC ad. Will cease once it reaches its maximum clicks and update all bloggers' account whose blogs generated genuine clicks during the campaign. If a blog showed the CPC ad but did not generate any clicks towards the campaign, no earnings will be updated.

I have not been able to paste the Nuffnang codes into my Wordpress/Xanga/Multiply/Livejournal blog.

  • Free versions of do not allow the use of Javascripts nor the editing of their template's HTML. However, hosting your blog by using's files on your own domain will allow you to do so if you are able to set the file permission settings through your FTP.
  • At the moment, Xanga Themes does not support the use of javascript as it prevents the "< script >" tag to be inserted when placing a HTML code into their widgets. Only the old "Look & Feel" page allows the user to insert javascript. You may find the Xanga support forum thread about this here
  • Multiply and Livejournal do not allow 3rd party advertisements nor the editing of their blog HTML. From our knowledge so far, the blogs that allow you to do this are blogger platforms such as, the old ‘look and feel’ version of Xanga, full paid versions of Wordpress, and
