Ad Schedule

Creating an Ad Schedule so that you can easily start and stop ads would seem like a necessity for any blog or content provider.  Surprisingly however, many blogs have no way to schedule ads.

For example, say that you run a blog with even just three ads on it.  Advertiser one has paid for three months starting in January, advertiser 2 has paid for 1 month starting in December, and advertiser 3 has paid for 1 month starting in February.  With just this simple scenario, if you are placing ads on your site yourself it can become a nightmare each month to figure out which ads should be live and which ads should be turned off.

Even more annoying is the fact that each month you have to go into your source code to add and remove ad code.  If you are using a CMS, you may be able to modify settings in your CMS administrator to add and remove ads each month but this is still a hassle.  And what if an advertiser wants to run an add but wants it to start and stop on a day other than the first of the month?

With free ad management solution‘s such as AdPlugg, why bother with the nightmare of trying to manually add and remove ads when you can just schedule them!

Ad managers such as AdPlugg make it so that you can schedule ads easily.  You can set start and stop dates when you create the ad and change them anytime that you want.  At anytime, you can view a list showing each ad, including when it started (or is going to start) and when it stopped (or is going to stop).

AdPlugg’s WordPress Ad Plugin is so easy to install and configure that you can get controllable ads in about the same time as it would take to put up just one unmanaged/hard coded ad.

So try it out and let us know what you think.  If you’ve ever tried to turn ads on and off manually, you won’t believe how much easier an ad manager makes things.  If you are just getting started with putting ads on your blog, why not make it easy on yourself from day 1 by using an ad manager.
