In the third and final article covering phpAdsNew, Harish Kamath explains how to use the program for generating the reports that advertisers love for keeping track of how their campaigns are doing. He also explains how to get some information very useful to administrators, and how to manage phpAdsNew.
No more spillovers or extensions! No sequels or prequels! The moment that each one of you has been waiting for: the third and final part of my phpAdsNew series!
With that Oscar-ish style of introduction out of the way, letís get down to business, shall we?
In the first two parts of the series, I outlined how to set up the phpAdsNew application in two different modes. In the first part, I showed you how to configure the tool for a single website and in the second, I gave you detailed information on how to integrate this software across multiple websites. Along the way, you also became familiar with many phpAdsNew specific terms such as "publishers," "zones," "advertisers," "campaigns," "AdViews," and so on.
In this third (and final) part, I will concentrate on the mundane, and probably the least interesting bits of the application. I'll start by giving you more information about the "Statistics" and "Reports" sections. While these sections may not be of any particular interest to developers, they play a critical role in the attempts of webmasters to attract potential advertisers to their website(s). Next, I'll walk you through some of the important sub-sections of the "Settings" module -- this is the place where you can tweak and fine-tune your phpAdsNew installation so that you can get the most out of it.
On a personal note, I'll admit that this is first time that I've had such a good response from readers. Not a day goes by without an e-mail in my Inbox regarding phpAdsNew. So, keep that feedback rolling in!
