Admob to stop publishing mobile web ads; try out ZestADZ Mobile Advertising

We heard the news a few days back that Admob is going to stop publishing mobile web ads. It would essentially mean that mobile web developers would need to use Adsense to publish ads on mobile.

While Adsense is a great platform, it is still a new platform on mobile.  We believe that there will be some difference  between how Admob worked (as a company, its API) and the support it gave developers vis-a-vis the new offering.

So here’s our offer – please try ZestADZ for monetizing your mobile website.  And why should you use us?

- Superb Self Service Platform

- Truly transparent / open in sharing the Campaign information, click prices, actual performances through reports and API.  See http://zestadz.com/static/publisher_api,  http://www.zestadz.com/static/approve_ads

- Wide sales reach, 220 people in over 12 countries. See the post of our upcoming blog about this information.

- Real time analytics – again – see the upcoming post about this.

- Superb customer support: We will be available over the phone or via email. We will always respond to your queries. If you violate our terms, we will not ban you and simply block your account depriving your hard earned money.

New Data Center in Chicago plus We’re at 6 Billion Impressions a Month..

We are happy to announce that in April, we setup an additional data center in Chicago. This data center was setup so that we can have additional capacity (in ad serving and data processing) and also because we did not want to have a single point of failure at one data center.

We have been using the new data center for hosting some of our apps, the most important of which is the ZestADZ Mobile Analytics (http://analytics.zestadz.com).  We will begin ad serving from this data center shortly enabling distributed ad serving.

With this new data center – what we have is increased capacity to process more ads, redundancy and an improvement in the overall quality of service / up-times provided.

6 billion impressions a month
We are also happy to announce that we are currently delivering over 6 billion impressions a month.  We’ve grown 300% in terms of traffic compared to the same duration last year. We’re hoping to double this in the next couple of months. Hoping that we have the support of global mobile publishers.

More updates coming up
We have exciting new updates coming up, so keep watching this page.

Komli Media acquires ZestADZ

Dear ZestADZ Advertisers and Publishers,

We are extremely happy to announce that  we have been acquired by Komli Media – Asia Pac’s leading ad network.

It has been a long journey for us at ZestADZ. We started as mobile ad network focussed at a few regions in Asia. We eventually expanded globally with a footprint spanning US, Germany, Spain, UK, Netherlands, Italy, Russia, South Africa, India, Indonesia, and a couple of other regions.

We have grown significantly and are currently delivering about 5 billion ad impressions each month spanning all of these regions.

This growth & global presence was a result of a modest self funded operation lead by a great team at Chennai, India and in the US.

We are now very excited to be a part of Komli, a company that has demonstrated exceptional growth in the last 3 years.

This acquisition is going to help our advertisers and publishers by:

- enabling us to tap into the wealth of experience that Komli has and apply it to mobile, thereby delivering better value to advertisers.

- enabling us to leverage Komli’s leadership team lead by Prashant Mehta to accelerate growth and adoption of mobile advertising in general.

- enabling us to leverage the massive Komli’s field sales presence in over 10 countries to generate better yields for publishers.

- delivering better technology and mobile advertising with the availability of more resources.

Komli is committed to investing significantly in ZestADZ to establish market leadership. We’re hoping that we will have your continued support through this journey.

About Komli: Komli is Asia Pac’s leading ad network. Komli has over 200 employees spread across a dozen offices in New York, Redwood City, Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangalore, Sydney, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Vietnam, London along with Chennai and Des Moines, IA which are the newest additions with this acquisition.

Thank you. Link to press release.
