Word Ads

June 05, 2012 | 07:53 AM

Added a new class of ads - Word ads. Similar to Google's word ads, these simple ads just have a title, body and link. Full CSS controls allow you to determine how the word ads are presented on your site.

These ads were developed as a response to the mobile environment. Essentially, your mobile site can include word ads at the top and/or bottom of every page - plus, the system can insert word ads after each "X" paragraph in editorial. Each standard ad on your web site (i.e. Banner ad, Box ad, etc.) can be configured with a "word ad equivalent" which can become part of the mobile environment.

Each page of your web site can show up to 50 words ads. Interestingly, the word ads can be displayed in up to 4 groups - each group independently situated in the right rails. If you use multiple groups for displaying word ads, the system will automatically divide the total words ads shown into the groups.

Word ads are enabled in your Site Ad Defaults. Once enabled, every other ad type will include controls a "word ad equivalent". Individual "word ad equivalents" can be designated to be included among the standard word ads on your web site. All Word ads and "word ad equivalents" are made available to the mobile environment.

Quotes
smiley pete"Linear publishing has provided a turnkey solution for Mile High Newspapers that far exceeds anything that we could have accomplished on our own. While the capabilities of the system are impressive, what I have found most useful is Linear's willingness to implement new features and its ability to support the ones it has. The Linear system has so many features, that one newspaper will never use them all. I have looked at other newspaper content management systems, but have yet to find one that matches Linear's price, tech support and feature set."
