Currently, we have two "live" ads, shown here: https://japanese.meta.stackexchange.com/ads/display/1421

I haven't actually seen them on the main page, but apparently the counter increases, when clicking the ad on the above page, too.

clicks per day

I clicked the Korean Language proposal ad 6 times & the resources ad once (on that page, not in the Community Ads meta post). Now the "clicks per day" have to increased to 6 & 1 clicks total, but these stats are not from them being shown as ads!

I have refreshed myself through about 50-60 different ads (questions and Area 51 proposals). The Korean proposal pops up every now and then, but that seems to be the up-to-date ad, coming directly from adzerk.net, not from our Community Ads. (The way to tell the difference is with the link, but also visually: the adzerk ad has "42% committed", whereas the community ad shows "39% committed".) (Related question on Meta.)

So I'm left wondering are the Community Ads actually working?

    If it becomes clear that the ads aren't working then it might make sense to tag this question with bug, which I believe alerts SO staff to the question. Commented Oct 3, 2015 at 19:46
  • @DariusJahandarie I think [support] also alerts SO staff, but I was waiting first to see if anyone came by saying "I've seen one of your ads". Since nobody has come forth (and I've polled around in chat), I think this might well be a bug, so I've gone ahead and added the [bug] tag.

This seems to have been fixed, as promised here (comment from Feb. 26, 2016.)
