Banner Migration

ArrGee asked 2 years ago
I have a total of 4 website, created in MS Office Small Business (being a noob!)

Each site has different content, but the banners are the same. Each site has 6 HTML casino banners (125×125).

If I want to change a casino, I have to log-in to each site and replace the HTML of a banner with the new HTML. This isn’t too bad, but what if I have a dozen or so sites and I want to change all the banners in one go?

Is there a way I can change the banners on one site and they automatically migrate to the rest, without having to go through a tedious log-on-change-log-off process?

OpenX is a great free ad serving platform. They have a hosted version so you do not have to download and install anything. Their instructions are very easy to follow. You would just add your website, then add the zone with the size of 125×125. Than you would add an advertiser, then a campaign, then upload the banner. You can then assign the banners to that zone on your websites. Now you can manage all your banners on one site and turn them off and on as you please. Open X can be found here http://www.openx.org/

You can also do this using redirects, so that each banner for the same casino has the same redirect, then you only change it in one place which will update them all.

Many thanks wayden. This sounds just like the solution I’m looking for. I will check it out tomorrow (UK time a bit late now!)

Also thanks to Renee. I need a system that is as straight-forward as possible so that I can easily migrate all the sites at a later stage.

Bummer! OpenX looks like a great service, but it works on PHP scripts. Unfortunatley Office Live Small Business sites do not accept PHP scripts, only ASP. Any other ideas anyone?

Actually you only need PHP if you are installing it on your server. You can just use their hosted solution and place the javascript on your page from their system. Javascript works fine with ASP. Watch their tutorial video here http://www.openx.org/docs/tutorials/video/getting+started+with+openx

A 301/302 redirect has got to be the simplest form out there.. just a couple of lines of code!

301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection.[/quote]

Sorry admin, I know I’m not supposed to post links, but hopefully this one will be overlooked since it is relevant. If not, please feel free to delete.

301: webconfs.com/how-to-redirect-a-webpage.php
302: internetofficer.com/seo/302-redirect/

Both pages show you exactly how to do it. Very simple.

If you need help let me know.

Cheers
Renee
