What is AuctionAds?
AuctionAds shows non-contextual eBay ads on your site. It is a Cost-Per-Action ad. You are making money when your visitor register at eBay or places a winning bid or purchase using “buy it now”. You do not make money when visitors click on the AuctionAds ad.
I only tested AuctionAds ads in my blog’s sidebar for a few days. In the beginning, the AuctionAds reported incorrect ads impressions because of wrongly generated ad code for me. I emailed them and received the correct ad code.

With over 10,000 ad impression per day, I did not make any cent from AnctionAds after running for three full days. It didn’t meet my expectation and I took it down.
Do I mean AuctionAds is a useless program? No, after reviewing it back again, I think there are few things we can do to optimize the AuctionAds performance.
