The AdPlugg Network

The AdPlugg Network is a system that allows publishers to offer space on their websites to advertisers via RTB (Real Time Bidding). Advertisers bid on the impression and the winning bidder gets to display their ad. Enrollment is easy and once enrolled, you simply target the AdPlugg Network ad to the Zones on your site. You are then paid based on the number of impressions that you serve.
