[Plugin: Advertising Manager] Automatically turn off ad after x impressions (9 posts)

    In practice, you might sell 20,000 impressions to a company for a single ad placement. How are users of this plug-in monitoring impressions because I don't see any options that allow one to do that. Note: if it matters, I am working with my own html ad code for ads, not a network.

    Yes - this is what is known as a full blown ad server :)

    I am very interested in what others think - I want to balance the power of this functionality with the added complexity (e.g. perhaps most people just want a widget to easily place their Adsense code)

    I am happy to be convinced otherwise...

    I second that. Having a counter that automatically stops after a certain number would be very beneficial. When handling multiple clients, it is actually a necessity.

    Ok - I have started down this path - the latest version keeps statistics on how many impressions an ad gets. Over time, we will get this functionality.

    Pls help. In my Ad Settings I have ticked 'collect stats about the number of ads served' BUT on my Manage Your Advertising page I can only see 'Views Today' - where is the 30-day history? How do I see the total number of views an ad has had?

    Thank you. Great plugin.

    Advertising manager is not there yet. It currently only displays views today. In the (hopefully near) future there will be a separate screen which displays stats.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    I'm very interested in such functionality, very important.
    When do you think it can be done?

    Thanks.
