AdBull Quick Facts:
The patented AdBull contextual based cursor ad unit is the only type of ad unit AdBull supports. These ads work by changing the nature of the cursor for some seconds and create a floating, clickable ad box that follows the user's cursor. After a while the box becomes attached to the bottom of the page and remains there until clicked away. (You can see a demo of AdBull's cursor ads in this demo page by AdBull; just click the blog's logo)
The ads are contextual and publishers have no control over what is displayed through their websites' cursor ads. AdBull's inventory is somewhat limited and they reassure publishers that their ads are totally safe, as they explain in their "safe" webpage.
The program works with CPC commissions, pays on a NET 45 schedule and has a minimum payout of $100; nothing special here.
Installation is simple enough and the program's control tools are basic but do the job. AdBull's website is good, explaining every aspect of the network through easy-to-digest FAQs (here and here) and user-friendly navigation. Support is equally good and quick to reply.
Even though AdBull claims they have no competitors there are other networks that utilize cursor ads so their ads are not completely unique. Nonetheless, AdBull is the only network solely focused on serving cursor ads only.
Many people find cursor-hunting ads obtrusive and others are worried about their apparent loss of control. Nontheless, AdBull's cursor ads are completely compatible with any other ad type (apart from other cursor ads. we hope!) and are certainly effective at displaying the advertisements (you can't help but notice them!)
