Banner Ad Manager
Some of the most notable advertising solutions are:
- Google Adsense, which are basically Google ads that allow you to show text and image based ads that are “contextual” to the page you are on. This means, the ads should be reflective of the content on your page. This is a good thing.
- Google Ad Manager. This is a banner management system recently introduced by Google. It allows you to control the ads that show on your site. You can create ad blocks and include banners from your clients. If you don’t have any client ads, you ad blocks can default to show Google ads. A nice feature to make sure there is always and ad up and showing. It is robust and comprehensive solution. At the present time there is no fee, but their service states they have the right to change that.
- Open Ads. This is a long standing, open-source banner management system (that’s been around for a while). Just like Google Ad Manager, it provide complex control over the presentation of ads on your website. Down side? It is simply too confusing for some users and can be over the top in terms of features for the basic publisher.
With all of these solutions, you are provided with a small JavaScipt to include in your site. We now have a section on the site that provides you with the blocks to copy and paste this code into. Now it’s time to start getting some people to your site and make some money!
