Adrotate Randomisation not working

Home Forums AdRotate for WordPress General Support Adrotate Randomisation not working

  • #158115



    We’re struggling to figure out how the randomisation of adverts is working for a particular page.

    If I have a group of adverts on a page of my website, and refresh several times I don’t get each fo the adverts displayed.

    This is making it difficult to sell the adspace to clients as on several occasions now we’re struggling to show their advert on a live page with both parties continually refreshing the page to see if it appears.

    The example page in question is:

    Can you shed any light on the issue?

    We’ve had several team members and clients with the same issue, we’re running AdRotate professional version 5.8.22 which I believe to be the latest version at the time of writing.

    Not much to say about it – Adverts are selected/output at random and the selection is influenced a bit by your settings such as Geo Targeting, advert weight, schedule spread and such.

    Less adverts in a group obviously means a higher chance of the same advert being picked several times in a row. More adverts will ensure a more diverse spread.

    Often if adverts seem stuck though there is a caching issue.
    AdRotate has support for Borlabs Cache and W3 Total Cache. Check out this manual to see how to set up the plugins for that to work; Personally I prefer Borlabs cache ( as it’s much easier to set up.
