If the url is just for impressions you probably want to use that in a onload() function.
But check with your client for a better instruction.
If it’s for clicks (clickthrough url) you can usually replace the previous url with it.
Your adcode is not a working code. It links to nothing and does nothing but shown the %asset%.
If your new URL is the clickthrough thing then your code should probably look something like this:
<a href="https://ad.doubleclick.net/ddm/jump/N30602.3511163THEATERBLOOM/B22426889.242439591;sz=200×200" target="_blank"><img src="%asset%" /></a>
That can happen if you use a dynamic group. The size needs to be exact for adverts to show up correctly.
You can however try to use “auto” for the size. This works sometimes, but depends a bit on how your theme deals with that kind of stuff.
Your impressions are not inflated because of that, only the “current” advert is counted in dynamic groups. Regardless of actual visibility.
A common workaround is to either resize all adverts to be the same size, or if that won’t work make the smaller advert images bigger with a transparant background. Then they appear the same size, but the actual file will fit your settings because of the transparant stuff.
Indeed that address seems to belong in Thailand. However, AdRotate Geo thinks it’s in the US.
The database GeoLITE from Maxmind is not the most accurate, so that’s probably why.
I don’t make that database, I just use it. So I Can’t really change that unfortunately 🙁
If it’s a server error or some kind of server config thing it will (should) be logged in the error_log.
The loop doesn’t just break/stop working, there must be an error somewhere. Or if there isn’t and all code works, just not how you want, there will be an obvious misplacement of your snippet in the header.php – Or where you added it.
Without further information there isn’t much I can tell you unfortunately 🙁
If you put the code correctly under your
<!-- BANNER SECCION -->comment that should work fine.
If your theme can’t deal with that, then your theme has issues.
AdRotate (Pro) doesn’t use or touch the loop in any way, so whatever you do with that, it should not break or change how the loop works.
Check your error_log file to see if there is anything in there – Maybe that sheds some light on what’s going wrong. You can usually find that file in your hosting dashboard somewhere.
Moved to installations and setup – Not a bug.
When using Geo Targeting a small array with your location data will show up in the Geo settings. Make sure this shows actual (partial) geo data. If something is wrong with the server or lookups an error may show there instead.
If you’ve recently changed settings, quota’s or geo service you may have to remove the ‘adrotate-geo’ cookie in your browser. The location in the array is stored there.
Removing the cookie and then reloading any page with Geo Targeted adverts or resaving the settings will generate a new cookie and thus new geo location data.
If the advert is “just” not there, make sure your adblocker is not hindering things.
That’s several years ago 😉
I Googled for an example, but all I could find is ad servers like Media.net and Adsense offering that kind of advert premade. It doesn’t seem all that popular anymore, but some still offer an advert like that via their accounts.
I’m not aware of a site using AdRotate who has a wallpaper advert.
But I have set up adverts like that in the past as I described.
Pageviews and advert impressions are not the same and can not be compared as such. Though similar trends can be observed. More pageviews of-course also generates more impressions.
However, me visiting a bunch of pages on your site may generate, say, 4 pageviews (1 visit/session) does not generate 4 impressions perse. This is because of the impression timer in AdRotate. You can configure the impression timer in Settings > Stats. Some people prefer it to be shorter, or match the average session time of visitors.
Bots not showing up in analytics is not so strange. For example Google filters most of that stuff out so you never see it.
AdRotate (Pro) is not that sophisticated for bot detection so that may skewer the stats a bit from time to time. Hence the bot filter you can configure yourself.
I’m not sure why your site uses above normal lookups, I don’t have similar reports from others and usually AdRotate Geo tracks lookups pretty accurately. So unless someone is actively refreshing pages and deleting cookies (or not using them at all) there shouldn’t be a reason why you would use up all lookups per day other than that they are actually being used. Bots or otherwise.
Probably some caching issue down the line 🙂
If you mean a wallpaper or background advert, sure.
You can stick your code for that in a advert as normal. Most of the time it works as is.
Then place the wallpaper advert somewhere in the footer of your site.
Yea, Auto may work. Setting 0px ofcourse also hides the advert if there is one 😉
If you use Jetpack, take a look at the Widget Visibility module.
Your site doesn’t load for me but usually if something like this happens the size in your group settings is wrong. If you’ve set it to auto, try a real size that matches your adverts.
If you’ve used more than expected lookups your site may be visited by a lot of bots.
You can configure/change the bot filter in Settings to catch more of different bots and crawlers.
If you consistently go over the daily quota (with real visitors) you should look at using ipstack or Maxmind.
Usually that’s something a theme does. Like a endless scroll feature or fade effects or stuff like that.
Looks like the widgets have a height set, I think as part of the group settings.
Removing the sizing in the advert should fix that.
Alternatively you may want to look at a Widget logic plugin to hide plugins for certain categories.
Some themes still output empty widgets, having them take up some space. But that depends on the theme of-course.
HTML5 adverts don’t really lend themselves for the dynamic function.
Default rotation is more suitable.
As far as I know there is no play/pause button for HTML5 adverts.
