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.

Okay, this may be a dumb post but here is my situation. I am running google adsens ads right now on my website. Basically I would like all usergroups excluding people who donate and are senior forum members to have the ads. Is this the mod for me? Will it let me speficify which groups will see ads and which will not?

With this product you can target ads for primary usergroups. Custom private groups are also supported. Are your donators in a custom primary usergroup?

Anyway, this product may be a bit "overkill" for just target ads to usergroups. You can do that with conditionals.

There are Primary custom usergroups and Secundary custom usergroups. Be sure they are in primary custom usergroup (so they are not in usergroup 2: registered users any more). You can also target secondary usergroups with this modification, it is a matter of five minutes.

I know it might be a tad off topic....I'm able to get all image ads served from GAM to show up inside actual forum posts. My issue is with text ads. Anybody have any tips or a way to serve them inside posts please ?

For text ads, go to Upload Creatives for and then choose: Creative Type: Rich Media. Then you can enter any html code you want, including text of course. Great to know is, that in "Rich Media" you can also enter another Google Admanager Placement code! That way you can put Google Admanager Adsense Placements in your Creative Types that are trackable within Google Admanager including all its analytic skills!

(added to FAQ)

Thanks, I know how to create text ads in GAM ;-)

When I use the html output from GAM to show all the ads, only the image ads work within the posts an NOT the text ads ?

I have all the ads displaying perfectly when using them within the VB templates. My issue is when I try to include them in a post or announcement. Give it a shot...try posting a standard post and you'll see what I'm saying.

Hello,
First let me say I love the idea of this mod. Im am using 3.8.1
when I use the hack it shows up under the "New Post" and "whos online" tab but not on the home page. I ahve changed settings back and forth with no results. I can put the code in my header and it shows on the homepage. When I click eith link that works, mine is there and the one from the hack shows up too.
Note: It works great on my test forum. I am running the default skin. The main board in a custom skin. (maybe thats the problem)

Any suggestions?

You can only target special vbulletins sites with custom Targeting key:Script which you can set to index, forumdisplay, showthread. Try to use this custom targeting and report if it works.

Is it only possible to target criteria for a pageview as a whole, or would it in any way be possible to track the number of the post the ad is shown: $post['postcount'] (if shown inside a post)?


(Works perfectly for 3.7.4)

There's only one way I know to have different targetings on one webpage with Admanager.
Example:
  1. On the webpage is one ad slot
  2. You can run a line item on this ad slot. The tag of this line item is another adslot. In this tag you can also include additional targeting values.
  3. Make sure that all data for the adslot are fetched in headinclude.

If you like this mod and use it,click Install
