Q: What is default or unsold impressions?

A: In the event that no paid ad campaigns are available at the specific time requested by the publisher site, a "default banner" or Hooqy in-house ad will be shown. Publishers do not earn revenue off in-house ads so we recommend you implement your own default/alternative re-direct ad.

Q: How do I setup default / alternative ads?

A: Publisher can implement a default/alternative ad during getting ad code.

Q: Why is there a discrepancy?

A: Generally, there are some factors that may affect the counting of impressions: Internet surfer's connection speed. How publishers setup their codes. Network issues

Pop killers/blockers for pop-unders. However, pop-under's count discrepancy is usually about 15%-35% (due to pop-up blockers), in-page banner is about 5%-10%, and pop-in banner/interstitial is about 7-15%. If you are seeing a count discrepancy greater than 25%, please contact our publisher support immediately since that is above average.

A: Hooqy does not allow ad codes to be generated from user accounts as we have experienced on several occassions where publishers generate ad codes that our advertisers are not looking for.
