How to start with Adserver Online.
Firstly, you need to create a new site. A site is just a container ad server uses to collect all the zones of a website on which you will display ads together. Therefore, sites need to have one or more zones to function properly.
Secondly, create zones and place invocation code on to your website. A zone is a defined area on a website and your ads will be displayed there. A zone’s invocation code is a small piece of code that should be placed on to a website to display relevant ads.
Then create a new campaign. An ad campaign is a set of related advertisements that an advertiser wants to display. Each campaign that an advertiser has, needs to have at least one ad. Otherwise, there will be nothing to display.
Finally, create a new ad. An ad is a creative (or your content) with associated properties that together comprise an online advertisement. Please note, your ads and zones need to have a corresponding ad format if you want them to run properly.
Just follow these simple steps and you will be ready for more advanced tweaking of your ad campaigns.
