Ad Tags

An Ad Tag is an HTML tag that is placed in your source code in the location where you want ads to appear. Ad tags are used by the AdPlugg server to know the exact place in your source code to insert the ad. This placement affects where the ad will be displayed on your site.

An AdPlugg Ad Tag looks something like the following:

<div class="adplugg-tag" data-adplugg-zone="topbar"></div>

The above tag tells the AdPlugg ad server to render ads for the Topbar Zone in the location where the tag is placed on your site.

Ad Tags and WordPress Widgets

If you are using the WordPress Ad Plugin, Ad Tags are automatically created when you add the AdPlugg Widget into a WordPress Widget Area but you can also add Ad Tags directly into your WordPress template source code.

Getting and Placing Your Ad Tag(s)

Note: you may not need to do this if you are using the WordPress Ad Plugin (see above).

  1. From inside the AdPlugg Ad Manager, go to Download then choose Snippet.
  2. Read the onscreen instructions or scroll directly to the bottom and press the "Get the Snippet!" button.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions and place the AdPlugg JavaScript SDK in your source code (if this hasn't already been done).
  4. Copy and paste each ad tag into the place in your source code where you want the ads to appear
