As the offer of Amazon Mobile Ads API is approaching, so I wanted to confirm that in the competition 500 Ad requests are required every
week.So how is the Ad Request counted, I mean that by clicking that ad is the Ad Request counted or by refreshing the Ad is the Ad request counted?? Thanks -Aagam Shah
Thanks for the reply... BTW if I refresh the ad and if same ad results than is that ad counted as new AdRequest?? And another question- How to check the number of AdRequest that the app has received?? -Aagam Shah
Shah, you can see how many requests your app has made for Amazon ads by signing into the developer portal at
https://developer.amazon.com/welcome.html. Once there, click on Reporting. Then in the submenu select Mobile Ads Performance (direct link:
https://developer.amazon.com/ma/rp/adperformance.html). Scroll to the bottom and you will see how many requests the app has made and how many impressions resulted. Since this promo is based on requests, not impressions or clicks, it should not matter what ads are returned if any at all. Amazon currently has a lower fillrate whereby less than half of all requests will result in an ad.
Amazon's ad service does not support automatic refreshing, you must do that manually within your code via a timer, view change, etc. For example, if you set up a timer to refresh the ad every 45 to 60 seconds, Amazon will attempt to get a new ad every time (but may be unable to get a new ad each time depending on availability). You have to wait at least 30 seconds before refreshing the ad; Amazon recommends at least 45 seconds between each refresh. Amazon's service limits you to a minimum of 30 seconds between each refresh--if you attempt to get new ads faster it will return an error notice telling you to wait. If an ad is requested but can't be filled, you likewise must wait at least 30 seconds before trying again.
