Frequently Asked Questions
What is difference between Landing Page table first and second levels?
Pages are grouped by the URLs, not including variables,
Consider the URL http://myexample.live/?cc=U494Lf
The variables are everything from the question mark so ?cc=U494Lf
Meaning the URL without variables is http://myexample.live/
The second level of the table subgroups using the full URLs (which includes query data)
In the above example that would be: http://myexample.live/?cc=U494Lf
We do this for several reasons.
- It is good to understand how often a particular LP is seen with an advert (First level) as this gives an indication of which are the best-performing pages.
- It is good to see the full URLs as they can provide marketing secrets such including useful tracking data.
What is Strength Score?
Strength score is a representation of the number of times we have seen an advert and thus the overall performance of an advert.
Advert strength scores show how often we have seen an advert in total, whereas other strength scores indicate how often we have seen an advert on a particular network or with a particular device etc.
What is the difference between the advert full details popup and advert full details page?
Very little in terms of content.
They both contain exactly the same information, however, the popout is an overlay and the page is an actual page with its own URL.
This means you can keep multiple pages open in your browser tab for quick access during a session.

Why do so many adverts look so similar?
Sometimes an advert may look very similar to another.
In these cases, however, there will be something subtly different with the advert image, such as it being a different size, or having a few changed pixels.
Due to this, the adverts will be catalogued as different.
Why do I see new adverts every time I log in?
We are continually live adding new adverts to the NativeAdBuzz advert catalogue.
So that we always show you the latest content first, the default order of the Advert Catalogue Page is set to Last Seen descending.

Erm, you may be in the wrong place, but at a guess, I recon it is to enjoy yourself, help each other and to leave the universe a better place than when we came to it.
Help! It’s too much I’m going insane, what should I do?
