What is an IP Number?
'IP' stands for Internet Protocol - it decribes the way information is sent and received over the internet. An IP number is a 32 bit number assigned to any device that wishes to communicate over the internet. Typically the IP number is represented as a set of four numbers in the range 0-255 - an address is usually written as these four numbers separated by dots. It can also be shown as one big number in decimal or hexadecimal.
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has issued you you with either a static IP number, which means it never changes, or a dynamic IP number, which usually changes every time you reboot your machine. The IP number that your ISP has issued to you right now is: 22.214.171.124 and that number can be used to interact with you in many ways, as an example, we use it to identify you when you access one of our sites or ad submission tools.
This is not a new technology, it was quite popular in the 90's and then with changes to different web browsers it faded away as it worked only on archaic browsers like Mosaic, Internet Explorer, and Netscape. But with recent changes with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox our IP Submitter is fully functional again and becoming quite popular, as far as we can tell it's the only IP Submitter online today.
Your success or failure with this tool will be in scheduling your ad submission properly. We use the tool daily and we send our ads at 7pm CST which is the East Coast of the US. We've found that time works best for us.
Below is a screenshot of what your ad will look like when it appears on the user's screen. The ad will only appear on the user's screen if the user is online when you send the ad, then the user can read your ad and either click the button to visit your site or close the dialog box.
