How does your credit system work?

Up to half of the spots in your widget will be populated by third party content - these are links to other publishers' articles that are related to the article where the widget loads. Any time a reader clicks on one of these links, you earn 0.5 credits. Once you have a credit balance greater than 0, links to your articles will begin to appear in the widgets on other publisher’s sites. Every time a reader clicks on a link to your content on another publisher’s site, you spend 1 credit.

What does my ‘remaining credits’ balance mean?

Your credit balance is the amount of new visitors TrendMD will deliver to your website(s) by promoting links to your content on third-party sites in the network. 1 credit = 1 new visitor back to your website(s) from third-party sites in the TrendMD network.

What affects my ‘remaining credits’ balance?

There are 3 events that affect your credit balance:
  1. Adding money to your account by setting a weekly budget will increase your credit balance.
  2. You earn 0.5 credits for every click that occurs on a third-party sponsored link featured on your website(s)
  3. Your credit balance decreases by 1 credit when a reader clicks on a link to your content featured on a third-party site

What happens when my credit balance goes to 0?

Links to your content will no longer be seen on third-party sites in the TrendMD network. You can add more credits by modifying your weekly budget.

How do I add credits to my account?

You can add more credits by modifying your weekly budget.
