Ad King Pro allows you to easily manage, track and report on your on-site advertising. Upload, link, go.
There's a secret bonus to using this plugin...which I'll get to shortly! But for now I'd like to start at the beginning: I was happily using the marvelously excellent "Ad Injection" plugin but then its author disappeared while modern browser ad blockers totally prevent its output from being displayed.
John Morris makes a great little "Ad Blocker Detector" plugin (also available on this official WordPress repository) but that only works with shortcodes, which "Ad Injection" doesn't use so I had to go looking for a new ad manager plugin. Thus, "Ad King Pro," which does use shortcodes!
The funny thing is, however, that browser ad blockers like "Adblock Plus" haven't targeted "Ad King Pro" yet (or else there's some serious software sorcery going on here!) which totally negates my need for an ad-blocker detector plugin...at least for now!
So that's the "secret bonus" to using "Ad King Pro"...your ads won't be disabled by a browser's ad-blocking extensions/plugins!!!
This isn't a plug-n-play plugin, but it's a very good tool to take out a lot of guesswork trying to run multiple advertiser sources on your site.
Use this, some widget visibility magic, and some css, and you're set - but you still have to work for it.
I give it 4/5 because the back end still needs some minor work, especially when it comes to using titles for target URLs - that makes tracking lots of ad types harder than it has to be.
But hey, given how much this plugin does, not looking pretty shouldn't be a determining factor!
I'm working to understand it all. It's pretty easy for the most part. Couple of small issues, but Ash has been great at getting back with answers.
Great plugin! Implemented within minutes and simple for end users to manage.
Client is particularly happy with the reporting features of the plugin.
