Not too long ago we were discussing timers and whether or not they mattered. Well the conversation is sure to start up again as Fast Easy Traffic is now offering the option of forcing a timer with it’s Extended Exposure Ads.
The concept is that if you want to, you can set your site to only give out credits if the viewer is there for the full 8 seconds. If they tab surf or start watching a movie they won’t get credits.
But there is a twist.. If you turn this setting on and a member views the site and tabs out, when they come back it’ll ask them if they want to wait the whole 8 seconds for triple the credits.
I’m intrigued by the concept. I’ve thought about it in the past having a timer that only counts down while the site is in view. But I wasn’t sure if it would work so I never tried it out.
Of course it’s too early to say what the results will be. I’ve setup a test with two links, one extended turned on and one extended turned off. So far no difference but I’ve only had a handful hits =P I’ll post an update!
