Adnium as a Traffic Source

Adnium is an adult-only CPM-based ad network. They offer two ad formats: pop-unders and banners for you to choose from. The following guide describes a complete setup that is required to track their traffic with Voluum and report conversions back to Adnium.

Before You Start

There are some things you need to have before proceeding with the rest of this guide:

  • An active Adnium account with some funds added.

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An offer, and optionally, and lander.

  • An SSL-enabled tracking domain, as a recommendation.

Once you have everything, you can go to the first step.

  1. In Adnium, click your profile icon in the top right corner of the screen and select the My Profile option from the drop-down menu.

II. Create a Campaign in Voluum

The second step is about creating a campaign in Voluum. This will provide you with a campaign URL, that you will submit as a destination URL in Adnium. In order to do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Creating an Offer Element article to learn how to do that.

  2. (Optionally) Create a lander element. Read the Create a Lander Element article to learn more.

  3. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with the Content.ad traffic source template, so you can use it and skip most of the manual setup. In order to use this template, perform the following steps:

    1. Go to the Traffic sources tab.

    2. Click the New traffic source button.

    4. Click the Load template button. The New traffic source form will appear.

    5. In the Traffic Source postback URL text field you will find an URL template. It should look like this:

      https://api.adnium.com/v1/advertiser/conversion/add/?token=[GENERATE_API_TOKEN]&atrack={conversion}&amount={amount}&subid={YOUR_OPTIONAL_SUB_ID}

      You need to update it with an API key that you have obtained from Adnium. Replace the word [GENERATE_API_TOKEN] with the API key value that you have copied to the clipboard. Your modified traffic source postback URL should look like this:

      https://api.adnium.com/v1/advertiser/conversion/add/?token=f8e3279c9712b965a260874e6c7131f1&atrack={conversion}&amount={amount}&subid={YOUR_OPTIONAL_SUB_ID}
    6. Click the Save button.
