Lets see if I have this right;
On accounts, we have three options- the administrators, thats us. Who pay the bill for the AdvertServe.
The advertisers, these are the sources of our ads, the people who we are charging to place ads for-
The publishers, these are the sites whom we, the administrators are placing ads that we are charging the advertisers for.
When I get an ad order, I create a media item that contains that ad content.
To get an ad on a publishers site, I create a zone (container?) so that I now have control of a portal on their page.
To get an ad to appear in that Zone, I create a campaign that links that ad together with that zone.
The zones- if I have 100 sites, and each site has a Leaderboard (728×60) on it- and I have a zone that is a Leaderboard (728×60), do I need to create 100 different of the same zones if I am going to run potentially different content on these 100 sites, or can I have some stuff thats going to geographically target, with a heavier priority or other such targeting rules and whatever ultimately does not satisfy a targeting rules gets ruled out until something does qualify and thus, show up on the site?
In other words, if as far as what I’m running physically, is the same ad code on 100 different sites, of 5 different zones- but I have varying content, do I need more than these 5 zones?
but if I wanted to further work it out in that I had certain content for home pages and certain content for sports pages, news pages, blog pages, etc- then I would need to have a different zone for each of these?
As in, I have 100 sites, 5 items on each sites home page, so thats 5 zones (5 different sized items), and then I have 5 additional other items that show on all sub pages of a site, so that would mean I need 10 zones total, and the content on these is then worked out by the targeting rules?
