Adfly is a framework that allows you to monetize websites with advertisements. It currently has over 2 million users and doesn't need an account. You just set it up on your website and let people place ads on your site for money.
In this article, we'll cover everything you need to know about AdFly, from what it is to the different advertising methods available and what data centers are used by Adfly. Hopefully, this will help anyone who may be interested in using AdFly or any other similar services.
How Does AdFly Work?
The AdFly system works by a central server hosting the adverts. When a user connects to the Adfly server, they will provide the script embedded into their chosen website. This script will be responsible for placing an advert of some type onto the site and generating revenue when somebody views that advert. The system requires you to put an Adfly code on your site to receive revenue generated by that site's visitors.
Many different sites use the system's servers, and the users of AdFly have to make allowances for this. The important thing to remember is that although there are many different servers such as the Content Delivery Network (CDN) or Adfly's own datacenters, if you are running your website on an outdated platform or with an old browser, then the Adfly system will not work correctly for you.
The other thing to remember is that the technology behind Adfly relies on your website getting as many page views as possible to generate enough revenue to pay for the hosting costs. If you are using advertising on a particular site with a very small audience, it may not be worth your time.
The Ad Types
When using AdFly to place ads on your site, there is a large selection of different types of ads available. These include:
- Video ads are similar to normal display ads, but they will have a video as the main focus of the advert instead. You can choose from a rectangle or 336x280 box-shaped in-stream ads, and these will be displayed on your website by the Adfly server. Banner Ads - A banner ad is an advertisement that stands out large using an image that is usually less than 160 x 160 pixels wide. These advertisements are usually used in the footer section of a website.

Popunder Ads - Popunder ads are displayed on your browser when you are on a different website or page. This means that the Adfly ad will appear as soon as you navigate away from your current page. However, only one popunder ad per user session will be allowed to display, and the other popunders will be automatically closed.

-Image ads have a transparent image loaded by Adfly when a certain user is visiting your site. These images ads are suitable for many kinds of pages and are loaded very fast.
- Naked URLs are the clickable text links displayed on your website and linked to other web pages. These advertisements give more weight to the visitors on your website as they can directly take them to another webpage of their choice.
