Ad server problems.

I use OpenX.  I finally just figured out why the zone/banner/campaigns wouldnt link. Because the size of the banner was different on both. Oops and to think all that time I spent trying to figure it out smh

Now my problem is I cannot see the banner on the website. I have used the invocation code you get from going to "Zones" and clicking on the invocation code tab.

I have went to the "Website" tab, clicked "Invocation code" generated the code and still nothing.

I have also used both iFrame and Javascript tags. I tried troubleshooting it but honestly I dont understand half of what they are talking about. Probably more than that.

OpenX tip 14

PLEASE take note that I am still pretty new to being a website creator and have NEVER had to use an ad server before. And also my browser is Firefox.

  • Okay so now its just the banner doesnt show but if you click the empty space where the ad is suppose to be it leads you the site that is advertising

  • There has been a lot of noise about OPENX. Even some NC said they are now Millionaires but me, been just a down to earth human mortal, I have seen my Income gown from about USD 15 to 1, thanks to OPENX. 

    I have never expected to become a MILLIONAIRE as some did here. My Only purpose was to help pay the NING BILL.

    In the near future I am planning to go back again to my standard Google Adsense, which is telling me I have lost thousands of displays because some problems or blocks with my Ads.

    OPENX may be good for USA based Networks and for those having large numbers but not for those of us having members in the range of 1K.

    Hope my Feedback helps.

    • What is my Point? You may be wasting your time.

  • NC for Hire
    The NC that claimed to be a millionaire was a bit confused. :-)

    OpenX should be seen as a way of monitoring ad inventory, not necessarily as a way of boosting income. If you have advertisers who want transparency then this might be useful.

    By the way, images will show after a while - there is a bit of lag if you're using the openx servers rather than your own.

    • lol after a few hours I figured out Javascript doesnt mean image. I had to use the image tag invocation code.......duh. lol I was pretty proud that I figured this ad server stuff on my own. :P  After all I am a complete newbie hehe
