I want to place an ad on a certain page, and I have uploaded the image to MC Trade and began adding the new banner ad under Communications > Web > Banner Ads. How do I know what keyword and/or banner name to use so it shows up in the right place and on the right page?
To identify the banner ad keyword for any page hosted on your site (this excludes MC Trade hosted pages like the event calendar, directory, etc), navigate to the page in your preferred internet browser, and follow these steps:
The staff page is at the following url: http://example.com/about-us/staff.html
There are also special banner ad keywords that can be used in addition to the page specific keywords.
Banner names refer to the position of the banner on your pages. The standard names will be one of the following:
Leaderboard - 970x90px (usually at he top or bottom of a page)
There are times when the banner names may be different. The banner name can be found in the script set up for the banner when implemented. If that is not accessible, the following procedure can be used to find the banner name.
1. Right-click on the page and view the page source code - for Internet Explorer choose "View source," for Firefox/Chrome choose "View Page Source."
2. Hit the Ctrl + F keys (this will open a search box) and type: Bannername
3. The page will display the first banner ad on the page and provide you with the bannername. Any additional banner ads will be below this and you can select to "Find Next" or scroll through the page.
