  • Ok, i need help with ad management..

    Ok, i belong to the following systems:
    • ValueClick (uses javascript to display ads)
    • CJ (i belive it uses JavaScript)
    • fastclick (same)
    Since it is really annoying to have to go through and insert the code on every page, and assign unique identifier names (value click makes me do this, and I havent implemented CJ and Fastclick, but I think they require it too), is there a script that I can use to display ads that these guys supply me and inser a random identifier in each place in the code that I specify?

    I have no experience with this, and I really need to implement fastclick and CJ asap, does anyone know of any good FREE scripts that can do this, or if any can?

    You can find huge listings of ad management programs at www.cgi-resources.com and www.hotscripts.com

    My advice is not to worry about putting a unique identifer for each page, but use one of the ad management scripts available (or OrbitCycle.com, which I use) and just put the ad code in there.

      yeah, i've been looking there...I'm just not sure If it will work with the javascript that these companies provide me with....

      Any script recommendations? I'd rather host my own script then use a remotely hosted solution.

        Usually, you can get around the JavaScripts. Usually, there is the JavaScript code at the beginning, then the actual image and URL addresses towards the end. If you only use the parts in your banner rotator, you might be able to get it work. It's worth a try.

          here is the code that valuclick gives me...
          Code:
          <!-- VC active -->
          <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
          <!--
          // ValueParameters
          ValueHost = "[b]CENSORED[/b]";
          ValueLoaded = false;
          ValueID = "[b]this has to be unique[/b]";
          ValueVersion = "1.1";
          ValueWidth = 468;
          ValueHeight = 60;
          //-->
          </SCRIPT>
          <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript" SRC="http://oz.valueclick.com/jsmaster"></SCRIPT>
          <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
          <!--
          if (ValueLoaded) ValueShowAd();
          //-->
          </SCRIPT>
          <NOSCRIPT>
          <A HREF="http://kansas.valueclick.com/redirect?host=[b]censored[/b]&size=468x60&b=[b]has to be the same as set above[/b]&v=0" TARGET="_top"><IMG BORDER="0" WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" ALT="Click here to visit our sponsor"
          SRC="http://kansas.valueclick.com/cycle?host=[b]censored[/b]&size=468x60&b=[b]has to be the same as set above[/b]&noscript=1"></A>
          </NOSCRIPT>
          <!-- vc active -->
          so what would I rip out of this to add into the banner rotator? Or will it break the ad?

            Check out: AdCycle - http://www.adcycle.com

            IT allows you to use javascripts, etc - CJ, and FastClick, and the whole lot...

                Actually, I'm not so sure it works with ValueClick, but I think it works with Fastclick and others, for example. You would take out the part here:
                Code:
                <A HREF="http://kansas.valueclick.com/redirect?host=[b]censored[/b]&size=468x60&b=[b]has to be the same as set above[/b]&v=0" TARGET="_top"><IMG BORDER="0" WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" ALT="Click here to visit our sponsor"
