My guess would be if all ads are blocked by PrivDog with no AdTrustMedia (AT-MAd) replacement ads, then they probably have not signed up.
I imagine once they have signed up that a replacement ad is added almost immediately.
When the ‘Deliver trusted ads’ setting is selected.
Edit: Corrected spelling.
I was under the impression that ads from AdTrustMedia are placed on the site regardless of whether the site has signed with AdTrustMedia or not. Thus, until they do sign up none of the ad revenue gets to them.
No 3rd party ads are let thru to our users.
allowing 3rd party ad servers connect to our users is a risk we are not prepared to take.
so all ads are served from adtrustmedia network.
there is no indicator indicating that they signed up at the moment. but its a problem we will add to our list of things to work out…maybe a site seal or something on a site saying their ads are protected by privdog etc…
