Integrate messages in your website's Address (URL) Bar and turn it into an Advertisement Box. You choose your text, pages/posts, and destination
Address Bar Ads is essentially a new way to communicate with your users. Use it to update your users about a new post or offer on your website, or use it for advertising purposes. You define the destination URL, which means you can send them to any URL that suites your purposes.
The Link Key can be placed before your message (AKA Ad Text) or after your message. Although the default setting is placing it before your Ad Text, many users prefer placing it after the message, increasing the Call to Action.
We decided to add the Featured Icon buttons looking to add some spark to your message, making it more visible. The 20 icons chosen are generic icons that we believe will be helpful for a wide variety of messages and ads. Note: Adding Featured Icons is completely optional!
Unfortunately, some Featured Icons are still incompatible with some browsers, which means that they might not be visible to some of your users.

Address Bar Ads appends your message in the URL hash of your address bar, placing your messages characters in the address bar one by one. Unfortunately, this currently causes flickering on some browsers (notably Google Chrome) while loading your message. As of now we have not found a solution for this problem. Hopefully we will fix this in the next version of Address Bar Ads.
