We highly recommend Google Chrome browser for AdPeriscope Adult Ads Intelligence Tool. The platform has been built and thoroughly tested on Google Chrome. We expect that other browser's based on underlying webkit framework should perform equally well (such as Safari and Opera). However, with Chrome you are more or less guaranteed a good performance and proper page rendering.

We support Chrome and other webkit based browsers (such as Safari, Opera etc.) currently. That does not mean that the site will not load on other browsers. However, there may be occasional hiccups and rendering issues on other non-webkit based browsers such as Mozilla (aka Firefox) and Internet Explorer. Please bring those to our attention and we will fix them asap. We do highly recommend using Google Chrome, if possible.

An ad with higher rank is usually shown before with lower rank. Our scale for ad-rank ranges from 1-5, 1 being the higher and more desirable value. One of the primary function that determines the ad-rank is the relative bid price or cost per click (CPC) or cost per 1000 impressions (CPM) that an advertiser is willing to pay for an ad. Because of the dynamic nature of the real time bidding auction, the ad-rank is rarely stable. It fluctuates on a daily basis. However, a trend in ad-rank or an average ad-rank is a good parameter to identify whether an ad is doing well.

We have created two parameters ad-strength and ad-gravity to define the performance of any given ad.

Here are the primary differences between the two quantities

Ad-Strength () Ad-Gravity ()
Measures the performance of an ad over its entire lifetime Measures the performance of an ad in recent few weeks
Higher value means better Higher value means better
This quantity can only increase with time This quantity can increase or decrease depending on the ad's recent performance
A value of zero (0) means that the ad had no traction. A value less than 10 means that ad had very little traction A value of zero (0) means that ad never had any traction in its lifetime. A value of one (1) means that the ad had traction in the past. A value > 1 means the ad has traction currently
Bottomline: If you want to know the performance of an ad over long time period, use this quantityBottomline: If you want to know if the ad is performing well recently use this quantity

All slider bar filters have a numerical value associated with it. For example, ad-strength, ad-gravity, alexa-rank and days running all are numerical. Typically, you want to define a range for such filters to get specific results. The sliders allow you to define the range by selecting the minimum and maximum values. The slider handle on the leftmost side controls the minimum value and slider value on the rightmost side controls the maximum value.
