Google Admanager Integration

This product targets ads to usergroup, script, forum. That way you can
  • address ads to these targets.
    Example: Target all users except moderators in your favorite forums on index and forumdisplay directly in Google Admanager! (see Attachment 88883)
  • Adsense Advanced Statistics. Have a detailed view which usergroups, scripts, forums bring best adsense results. You have a detailed view about all targeting values.
    Example: You see that your announcement forum has a CTR of 8% and an eCPM of 25 $. Unregistered users bring an eCPM of 15 $ while registered users only have an eCPM of 3 $.
By the way a maximum of 6 adsense ads are allowed, when using Google Adsense in combination with Google Admanager.

1. Install product
If you upgrade: Allow Overwrite: Yes

2. Change template headinclude
If you upgrade please also do this. Add to end of this template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

3. Google Admanager Configuration
Configure Admanager like I write in #2 post in this topic.

Version History
9.11.2008 1.2 Solved a bug for forum targeting
8.11.2008 1.1 Improved forum targeting. Forums are shown with real names. Unlimited forum levels supported.
1.11.2008 1.0 Forums are targeted by using forumids. 3 forum levels supported.

Works with vbulletin 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8. This product works perfectly with vbSEO. This product doesn't make the vBulletin 3.8 implementation of Adsense work with admanager.

Update. After waiting some time forum targeting finally works. Google Admanager takes really long time for custom targeting. After waiting for some days I can check my inventory with custom forum targeting.

This mod and vbSEO

Thank you for this mod. I've just installed it and am wondering if anything needs adjusting for those of us running vbSEO?

For example, vbSEO rewrites forum names to this format...


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

... where words are separated by a dash rather than an underscore.

I assume that you are doing your magic before vbSEO rewrites the URL (I haven't noticed any changes yet, but I've just installed). Or, should I rewrite the forum names using dashes before entering them into Google Admanager?

Please advise.

Thanks again. -- Rik

This mod works perfectly with vbSEO on my own forums. This mod takes original forum names for its own from vbulletin and changes its names to apply with google name rules. (Google only allowes for example a maximum of 40 characters which are only allowed to be alphanumerical).

As these normalized google admanager targeting forum names are of course different from original forum names I have programmed a small script (see post #2) that gives you this normalized list which you just have to copy&paste to admanager.

It is very important to only import this normalized list of forum names!

Thank you for your reply. I'm glad no adjustments must be made for vbSEO.

I'm looking forward to seeing targeting results.

Thank again. -- Rik

You just have to import 6 standard vbulletin usergroups:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Unfortunately it is impossible for me to automate Google Admanager Settings as they are not within vbulletin. But I hope it is as easy as it could be. If you have suggestions to make installation process more easy, you're most welcome!

If I have other usergroups (and I do), I can enter them in too? Will it work?

IDs from primary usergroups are sent to Google Admanager automatically. If you have more primary usergroups, they are sent to Admanager. To track additional primary usergroups, you can of course put their IDs in Admanager.

I added your question to FAQ.

I'm not currently using this mod and this is more out of curiosity than anything else, but would it be possible to allow ad targeting by thread tags - ie an advertiser could target all threads tagged with 'automobile repair' or 'french literature' or . . . anything. Seems to me that could be pretty valuable.

Yes, that would be easy to integrate.

This product was designed for 3.8.x and is working fine on my vbulletin 3.8 rc2 forum. Do you have any problems?

I want to include "how many posts has user" in targeting. I need your suggestions for upcoming version 1.3. Google Admanager only has string targeting values, so it does not know that targeting value 5 is less than targeting value 20. So it is not possible to say Google Admanager: Target from 5 to 20 posts. Instead you can only click on "posts: 5,6,7,8,9,10, ..., 20".

What values do you think should we put in this new targeting criteria posts?
