A widget or site ID is a unique identifier for a particular website/placement. Ad networks use widget IDs because they don’t want affiliates like you to cut them out of the picture. The traffic source is the middle man, so they don’t want affiliates to know where your best performing ads are running.

For example, if your native ad was on website.com, their widget ID might be something like web9928293. You’d never know that particular widget is website.com

With BuddyAd you have access to thousands of websites and their relative widgets IDs. A similar concept applies for pop and adult traffic.

Glad you asked! Here is a blog post explaining the different types of widget we provide on pop, native and adult: https://buddyad.com/blog/types-widget-ids-network-references/

We are affiliates like you: the most annoying thing we've noticed is finding a widget ID that belongs to a page... maybe you get there manually, and the ID has been altered in some way.

That's why we introduced obsolete widgets. We basically crawl each website multiple times per day and we mark widgets that are not 'working' anymore. We do this not only for native but also for pop and adult where publishers switch networks a lot more.

Then, to give you solid data to based your marketing decision on, we only crawl widgets that are active.

If you don't know what native ads are, you're behind. We decide to takle native advertising first because content discovery works like content, but delivers results like advertising. With billions of impressions every month and click-through-rates massively out performing traditional banner ads, content discovery can deliver scalable campaigns with positive ROI.

Here are some facts on native:

  • People view native ads 53% more than banner ads.
  • Click-through-rates are much higher with campaigns reaching +8%
  • Purchase intent is 53% higher with native ads.
  • 32% of consumers said they would share a native ad with friends & family.
  • Pop and adult internal spy tools are coming soon.

    We are proud to say we detect over 150k banners per day on native. This is far more than the industry average.
