    Default Banner down on page

    I have 468x60 betfair affiliates banner down on page. When I click on it I am redirected to comeon, wbx etc. Never to betfair affiliates.

    Is it on purpose? If yes, what kind of marketing is this. I am curious if I can use it as well.

    Can you share the site or the banner to study it?

    Funny, i have a banner from ComeOn! Sport Casino Poker and i've been redirected on Betfair...
    Sounds tricky to push 1 banner and have another redirect...

    Any admin that could clarify?

    Must be a geo-targeting thing, because I clicked on the same banner and was directed to the place where I should be.

    Probably is indeed, but usually the geo targetting is done before. Does not make sense to push a $$ banner for €€ countries for example, they would not click and guess the landing page is in €.

    The banners at the bottom of page rotate. (if you refresh the page, you will notice the banner will change)

    I checked the banners I came across (ComeOn!, Betfair, Firebrand, WBX, Affiliate Republik and 777 Affiliates) they are each directing to their proper pages. Then I double checked the ad server location of ComeOn! and Betfair, all were set to their proper links.

    That is interesting.

    Sherlock can you possibly check from a different system from the same location, just to help rule out it is that system you are using? That would rule out a redirect trojan or anything on that workstation.

    Testing from the Philippines.
    No issue today, the Slotland Affiliates banner has the proper redirection.
    Was not the case yesterday.

    I will tmr. Already in bed.

    Just checked from different browser (FF instead of chrome and looks fine). Even in chrome I do not see anything unusual, the proxy domains are casinocity.com, no injection etc.

    I would suspect the crazy Chrome cache. It makes problems at my site as well. It is aggresive.

    We've spent considerable effort to see if we could find a problem, since obviously we would consider it to be a very serious matter for banner advertisements to not be working properly.

    By way of background, we use the openx ad server platform on all of our websites, including gpwa.org (openx.com.

    In terms of questions raised in this thread, in the case of the GPWA website, we do not currently utilizing geotargeting, so the theories that location might influence what happens do not make sense to me.

    Since Anthony was not able to reproduce the issue reported in this thread, he referred the issue to our technical staff to see what they could find.

    Although we have not been able to reproduce the issue after considerable testing, we believe it might be possible for a banner image to be inappropriately cached, either by a browser, or by a local isp inappropriately attempting to avoid fetching an image. If that were to happen then a cached version of a different prior image from the display of a prior page could be served that would click to the advertiser associated with the current image that should have been served, but that was not due to the inappropriate caching.

    Although that would not be proper behavior, we might be able to prevent such inappropriate behavior by introducing a cache busting string into the banner url. We are investigating the situation further and may implement such a change.

    Just a quick note to say that to be resilient in the case of improper aggressive caching, we have now added a cache busting token to the html code used to request banner images. That should preclude any future mismatch between the banner displayed and the click destination.

    Sounds like there was routing issues with a provider in the path and like Michael suggested, there was probably some caching taking place that answered some of the queries due to the routing issue.

    If you see strange stuff like this regularly, especially when it affects your own sites where you know the answer or link you should be provided with, it does sound like your isp, or possibly a backbone provider or large isp in the area is doing some caching of content.

    You can also verify this. Hover your mouse to the image and then right click on that ad. What is the URL that's there? Is it the correct one? Or the one that gets redirect? If it's the corrected URL, I think the problem lies on some URL redirect or some sort.
