Had complaints from a client and his users and now I had to go a different route.
It would be great if it was not built on a credit system, as the ads manager component is real good. This does not live up to what it could have been though.
Yes I understood the point, In the beginning of 2011, a new version will be released with the ability to don't use credits based system
You are better of not doing anything to your url'S then adding this, as the spam far outweighs the delivery from a Google viewpoint. Had a site go from #2 in a Google search to the third page two weeks after installing this. Took a lot of work to get it back to even the 1st page. Avoid at all costs!
I think you do not know what you are talking about. The links to our sponsors (which are by the way not used anymore) were in such positions (generator metatag), where it has no affect to Google or other search engines. I think that if there were some reasons why your site went down, it was certainly not because of the links there. Otherwise, there would not be thousands of users using this component (also its free version).
