Post Help with Advertising.com code

I got the e-mail that Advertising.com changed their banner code. I plan to implement it, BUT...

They say to insert a random number into the code for each page. I have nearly 3,000 pages! Under the old code, where you had to insert a random name, I had placed it on every page, and it took about 3 months to assign all those random names.

Is there anyway I can do the new code in an automated fashion?

I was thinking of inserting the same code into every page by putting it into a Dreamweaver Template. But then I'd need some kind of utility that can do a Find and Replace but replace with a random number. Does anything like that exist?

How about saving the banner code as a javascript file on the server, and each page would place a call to it, similar to like an SSI. But that code would have to include a random number generator.

I called Advertising.com and they didn't have any suggestions right off the top. "We'll check into it, and call you back".

Unhappy

yeah i had a similar problem for my site theprequels.net which is now using Advertising.com's new code on some of my 600+ html pages.

I don't have a easy answer... what i did was check out my stats and logs and find out which of my site's pages get the most visitors and page hits. Then i did those pages first (around 20 - 60 pages i think it was) the random code i just went from "00000001" to "00000060" for thr 60 pages... the other pages I will slowly change over.

Anyway i am thinking of redesigning my site anyway...

By any chance do you know what happens to referral clicks etc when you migrate from Teknosurf to the new Advertising.com code ? what happens to the existing money earned and referral stats that the old log in reporting area had ?

I make considerable amount (around 2 - 10 times more on referral clicks than from my own) ... I am in Australia and I had emailed them but no reply.....

Thumbs up

A support guy at Advertising.com called me back and said they created a banner code for me that will generate random numbers. He e-mailed the code to me.

I believe the code has my site id embedded into it, or some kind of number that uniquely identifies my site.

That's cool that they listened to me, and gave me a solution. Now I just need to put in place and see if it works!

that's great, did he by any chance say that the basics of the code will be made available to all Adserve network members ?

It would save me considerable time on the rest of my site as well.
