Advert Serving

Post by dblevins » Thu Feb 27, 2020 8:31 am

I am new to Joomla having used wordpress for the past couple of years. I am trying to find a advert management system that will allow me to serve my adverts in a slightly unorthodox fashion....let me explain.

I have a considerable number of advertisers, (over 150). I cannot simply allocate the best pages and positions of my websiteto the highest payer, as the most popular pages can change ulmost on a daily basis. Therefore I set up a system whereby any advert could appear in any position, but weighted them so that the higest paid appeared most often.

With wordpress I used a plug in called adinserter. This allowed me to create code (carousels of adverts). I created about 60 of them. Then the plug in would select a codes at random and place the code in the posts (Articles) and place them in the three positions I had created in each post.

In that way 3 adverts were shown on each page displayed, rotating the adverts on those particular carousel.

I was therefore able to display any advert in any of the allocated positions, and place the higher payers on more carousels and/or set the code to display them for longer periods of time.

Can anyone help me find a way to emulate this system or something similar with Joomla

Looking forward to suggestions, thanks in advance
