How does Individual Ad Weight Work?

Discussion in 'Co-op Advertising Network' started by joeychgo, Dec 14, 2004.

    In your pool of advertisments - for each ad you choose the "Weight"


    Someone please explain how this works. I assume a '1' means top priority - so if you ahve 3 ads, the ad with 1 will get shown more then 2 - but I would like a better explanation...

    Its the other way round - 5 is top weight - 1 is bottom
    all ads at 5 will get the same weight each as all at 1
    1 ad at 5 and 1 ad at 1 - the one at 5 will get substantially more showings than the one at 1
    etc

    any percentages between the numbers?

    i.e. Out of every 100 impressions

    a 5 gets ____ impressions
    a 4 gets ____ impressions

    etc....

    I thinks it's like this:

    Say you have 3 ads.

    Ad A - Weight 1
    Ad B - Weight 1
    Ad C - Weight 3

    Total individual Weight: 5

    A gets shown 1 out of 5 times.
    B gets shown 1 out of 5 times.
    C gets shown 3 out of 5 times.

    So it's in 'internal' fractal determining priority.

    You must have been bored yesterday digging through 3 month old posts. :p You are correct. It is now 15 and that is the best amount of weight.

    I believe this was changed after people asked for a little more control over the percentages.

    So if I have 5 ads, and each one is set to 1, then each ad gets shown the same amount of times, right?
