Use Google's free alternative, DFP
By , for WP 3.9.1

I paid $35 for AdRotate Pro and I sorely regret it. Many of the "features" of the plugin don't actually work or were so poorly developed that they are unusable. I assumed that paying for the pro version would mean I would get support to fix the bugs in the plugin, but instead the developer denied there were any problems and blamed me when his plugin didn't work properly.

Finally, I deactivated the plugin and switched to Google's free alternative, Doubleclick for Publishers Small Business. Combined with free plugin 'Enhanced Text Widget' it offers far more functionality and a far superior interface to AdRotate Pro and it doesn't cost a penny.

Only after I switched and asked for a refund did the developer admit that the bugs I had reported a month earlier actually did exist and then he fixed them. He denied my refund, but more than that, he cost me serious advertising dollars. Save yourself the trouble and go with Google/Doubleclick.

Glad I kept a copy of the old version

New version nothing like the old one, which actually did what it said it would do. You blew it, Arnan.

no no
By , for WP 3.8.2

Yeah, but I mean, I feel like if pay I will be cheated to buy it.

When I purchase a premium version, I do it because it offers me something more than the free version. But your Pro version now offers something more only because you have reduced the functionality of free version.

Very Impressive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Really Great plugin, incredibly feature rich and seemingly robust.

If I could ask for anything it would be to clean up the admin screens, and possibly look at simplifying the UI / UX for less technical users.

Great work.

All was fine... until an update made all my Ads expired
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin used to be first class... but now it's useless.

And one of the worst thing : the latest update made all my Ads expired for ZERO reason. And unfortunately I only saw this a few weeks later, having lost quite a few hundreds $.

Now I'm looking for an alternative and I will NEVER USE THIS DEVELOPER PLUGIN ANYTIME SOON.

Every update brings problems. Not worth the money.
By , for WP 3.8

Sorry to bee so harsh but this plugin - in special meaning the pro-version - is not worth the money.

Every update brings some problems like no more click-tracking, then all ads are deactivated, you have to keep your pro-version update-to-date by yourself (not automatic updates, no messages) and the help in the forum is more or less not helpful.

The good thing: it shows ads, rotates them and should count clicks when fully working. But this depends on the version.

My resume: if you need a plugin to really track all impressions, clicks and stable enough to sell ads to clients - don't buy the pro version. Use another plugin.

Deeply disappointed.

Simple, effective, powerful
By , for WP 3.8

A simple yet very effective and powerful plugin, it's easy to set up and manage my ad campaigns. Plus, it gives me the correct shortcode right on the setup page. And the reports are also very helpful; including CTRs, showing me what I need to fix or improve. Thumbs up!

Full featured - easy to implement
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin offers everything I can imagine a site owner would want or need to implement and manage ad campaigns on a WordPress site. The admin features are well laid out and can be understood quickly / easily.

Everything works on the first try - no fuss, just add a shortcode to a post or page and it's working.

Thank you!
