Before you create a module to display a banner advert on your website, you’ll need to set up banners, clients and categories in the banner component.
Once you’ve done this, here’s the final step in the process…. displaying the adverts on the page.
The Joomla 3.1 Banners component lets you organise the adverts you allow on your website.
Whether you are selling advertising space or allowing free adverts linked to external websites, this is a component to keep track of the number of impressions and click-throughs that adverts receive.
You can use it as a simple way to track the click-throughs and impressions on your own marketing graphics too.
Joomla 3 comes with a banner component as standard which helps you to manage adverts on your website.
You can organise adverts into clients and categories and track the number of impressions and click-throughs each advert receives.
Here’s the guide to getting started….
Creating categories in the Joomla 3.1 Banner Component is great for organising your adverts and can also help you to display adverts in various positions and on different pages on your site.
For example, if you have a website which sells pet products, you might only wish to show adverts relating to dogs on the dog product pages and only relating to cats on the cat products pages . Setting up categories and clients can help you do this easily.
If you only have a small number of adverts on your site, you may not need to utilise the categories and clients sections.
Getting the type of content right on your website is vitally important, but you can’t please everyone all of the time so how do you decide what you should include on your website.
