Adsonar – Cancellation Notice

In case you are wondering what a cancellation notice from Quigo’s Adsonar looks like, here it is. The user who received the 9 days notice (so much for 30 days) stated that they applied for the program, ran ads for a few days, then dropped them due to the drastic difference in generated revenue from Google’s Adsense.

AdSonar for Publishers

May 09, 2005


The AdSonar for Publishers Team would like to thank you for your partnership and support of AdSonar Exchange.

We regret to inform you that between May 16th and the end of the month, Quigo will cease running ads on your site and will terminate this agreement pursuant to Clause 11 of your contract.

Our data has shown that under-performing sites (with respect to overall traffic and ROI for our advertisers) affect the revenue potential for all AdSonar publishers. As we try to build a world-class online advertising marketplace, we must periodically remove those sites which are not converting well for our advertisers.

We wanted to let you know of this move in advance so you have ample time ( 9 days) to make alternative arrangements for monetizing your traffic. All monies owed to you will be paid by the end of June 2005.

Once again, we thank you for your past support and we wish you the best of luck in the future.

Adsonar Warmth

Kind of gives you a warm fuzzy feeling to know if you under perform (whatever that may be), you’ll get the axe.

See how Adsonar compares to Adsense.


  1. I don’t know, I’ve just joined the legions who’ve been cut off from Adsense with no notice, losing all revenue and losing an appeal, for no reason other than, I assume, the bored kid (or rival site owner) who decided to click one of my ad’s 200 times one evening.

    I can see how it’s easiest for them, what with so many sites out there, just to cut anyone off where there’s a problem, but can’t help feeling cheated out of a month of work, when their ads were the only ones I was running on my site, and when a 2 minute email from them could’ve let me know there was at least going to be a problem.
