That’s not a problem. BittAds uses tags so that you can divide content and show specific ads on specific locations and pages. I copied this from the admin area of BittAds to give you an idea of how it works:
bitt.zone allows you to divide your website or network into different areas.
When creating an ad, you will be able to choose which zones to display it in.
Example: bitt.zone = ‘finance’;
bitt.location allows you to specify different pages or areas within a zone, for instance “frontpage” or “registration page”.
When creating an ad, you will be able to choose which locations to display it in.
Example: bitt.location = ‘registration page’;
bitt.keywords allows you to specify keywords associated with this page.
When creating an ad, you will be able to display it only on pages that contain specific keywords.
Example: bitt.keywords = [‘video’, ‘mercedes’, ‘bmw’];
The shape indicates what kind of banner this is. This helps distinguish the ad spot from other ad spots on the same page.
Using this within your templates will give you the results you require. On my site I have gone a step further by creating a custom field in my weblog to enter special ad tags that will be written to the page and then picked up by BittAds allowing you or your client control over ad display from the EE admin.
I have just launched a site (in the last hour actually) that required a solution for managing banner ads.
The requirements were fairly simple as the advertisers in this case are sponsors so it’s not run on a PPC basis. I tried both Open X and Google Ad Manager and found both overly complicated, GAM even had display problems with the site as I suspect the js used was having trouble with the url structure of my EE site.
In the end I went much more user-friendly option in BittAds. It lacks some of the features of the other services but is also much simpler to use.
Hope this helps,
This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
Question though. How would I handle ads displayed on category pages. I’m using categories to distinguish site sections i.e. Sports, Lifestyle etc and my url structure is http://www.site.com/article/category/sports...
Any one have any ideas?
