How does your credit system work?

Up to half of the spots in your widget will be populated by third party content - these are links to other publishers' articles that are related to the article where the widget loads. Any time a reader clicks on one of these links, you earn 0.5 credits. Once you have a credit balance greater than 0, links to your articles will begin to appear in the widgets on other publisher’s sites. Every time a reader clicks on a link to your content on another publisher’s site, you spend 1 credit.
