request a specific ad

Asked by: jglazner 498 views User Questions

Is there a way to request a specific campaign and media combo? What i’m trying to do is this. Say on page one i have a zone with 3 text banners on them, lets call them A ,B, C. Now say that a user clicks on link A, that link then goes to a specific product page. Now on the product page i would like the exact same ad (but only that ad) to show up again. Is there a way to request a specific campaign & media type?

    You could do this, but it’s going to require a little programming work on the product page.

    First thing you need to do is modify the redirect URL for the text ad. For example, the URL might be http://www.example.com/page1.php — you want to tack a parameter on to the end of it like this: http://www.example.com/page1.php?adword=CampaignA

    The second part of the puzzle is passing the value of the “adword” parameter to AdvertPRO as a keyword and this is where the programming work comes in. See the following for details on how to implement this: http://www.advertpro.com/docs/1.0/html/manual/integration.html#keyword

    After that’s done, you can target your campaign at that keyword. To do this, edit the campaign and select “Keyword Targeting” from the “Change View” drop down on the right. Enter your keyword (i.e. “CampaignA”) into the box for targeted keywords and save your changes.

    Finally, you need to make sure that keyword targeting is set up correctly for the zone. Edit the zone and make sure that “Keywords” is selected in the “Exclusive Targeting” box. What that setting is going to do is let your campaign rotate normally, even when its keyword isn’t matched, but when its keyword is matched it will take 100% priority and be shown to the visitor.
