Dynamic Advertising Model for WordPress
Posted on 2011-10-20
I am to be soon developing a number of websites with dynamic ad models using Google's DFP service. Ideally I want to develop these websites using WordPress, I was wondering if there was any tips or brilliant plugins to allow me to show generic grouped ad units and specific ad units on different categories, pages and posts in certain categories?
I need a default generic set of advertisments to appear in a few predefined ad slots for example: 2x MPU, 2x Leaderboard etc..
These need to change depending on what category or page/post you are on. The same ads need to show on posts that come from it's parent category, the same applies for sub-categories and pages with sub-pages.
There seems to be no solution out there! Just simple plugins to stick adsense codes into posts randomly it seems..
Now I was thinking, do I add a set of custom fields to posts+pages+taxonomies? However I feel that this would be an ministration nightmare, having to siv through masses of data. However if none were defined there would be a default fallback set.
