Publishers may place Metaconex ad code on pages with content restricted based on the Metaconex’s publisher restrictions regulations, although this content will likely get fewer advertisements than other unrestricted contents.

1. Traffic source

Sites on the Metaconex foundation and including sites that place Metaconex ad code cannot get traffic from some certain sources. For example, publishers are not allowed to participate in pay-to-click programs, send spam emails, or display advertisements generated by any software application. In addition, publishers using online advertising must ensure that their pages comply with the Metaconex Site Quality Guidelines.

To ensure a positive experience for Internet users and Metaconex advertisers, sites that display Metaconex advertisements must not:

  • Display Metaconex ads generated by software applications, such as toolbars.
  • Loaded with any software that may trigger pop-ups, redirect users to unwanted web pages, modify browser settings, or interfere with web page navigation . It is your duty to ensure that no ad network or affiliate uses such methods to drive traffic to pages containing your Metaconex ads.

2. Invalid clicks and impressions

Publishers are not allowed to click on their own ads or from landing pages on the Metaconex foundation served through their own accounts or use any method to unnaturally increase impressions and/or clicks, including manual methods.

With the exception of rewarded inventory, publishers cannot ask others to click or view their ads or implement false methods to obtain clicks or views. This includes, but is not limited to - offering pay to users, promising to donate money to third parties to ask them to view ads or search, or placing images next to individual ads. .
