STOP REDIRECT ADS

Post by Wout000 » Sun Feb 08, 2009 5:36 pm

What to do in the event of REDIRECT ADS

Getting the creative IDs for banning purposes:


For tracking undesirable creative to their IDs in the sharethefiles.com ad system in order to disallow them if the event arises:
We suggest the following: download the tool: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/966
How to use this (http://jimbojw.com/wiki/index.php?title=Tamper_Data)

1. Open up publisher page where undesirable creative was viewed
2. Go into Firefox Tools on the publisher page and click on Tamper data
3. Click on publisher page or specific creative on the publisher page and watch the tamper data pop up box.
4. As soon as you look at the TD box you should see z5x.net tag (see screenshot bellow)
