Affilight’s WordPress Plugin

wordpress plugin to insert ads

The WordPress plugin allows inserting stylized download buttons on any post on your website. This type of integration is easier and faster in comparison with directlink. The plugin is ideal for those who wants to keep the integration of ad script as simple as possible but have flexible settings for download buttons. Let’s see how it works.

Ad Placement creation

Before creating an ad placement, you need to register as a webmaster. You can register on Affilight’s landing page by yourself or our manager can register you by request.

To create an ad placement, click the button New Ad Placement.

Settings of Ad Placement

Give a name to the ad placement. For example, we will name our ad Test Plugin.

Set location URL. The URL is used for ad mediation. If you want your users to see more relevant ads set a valid URL.

Choose Traffic type. You can specify which traffic source to monetize. Leave a default setting if you are not sure which one to choose.

  • If you want to show ads only on mobile devices set Mobile.
  • If you want to show ads only on desktop devices set Desktop.

In case you limit it by one source (only Mobile or Desktop) it’s better to set up Trafficback. It is used to redirect traffic that doesn’t meet any offer targeting. For example, you send us all your mobile and desktop traffic. All mobile clicks will be monetized by Affilight, and all desktop clicks will be redirected to your trafficback URL. Later we will consider a setup more closely.

Offer List

Select Smartlink. It is a link that automatically selects the offers by a number of parameters. This way of monetization is one of the most convenient and easy to use. Particular offers or verticals can be set up (or blocked) by an Affilight manager on your request.

Integration

Trafficback URL is important for traffic and restrictions settings. If we didn’t find ads for a user or we couldn’t accept, for example, desktop traffic then some users see a page 404. If you want to avoid that, specify a page of your website or another ad network as a trafficback. Anytime our system can’t find a suitable ad or a show was blocked, your traffic will be redirected to trafficback and you lose nothing.

Besides, you can add specific parameters in your trafficback. Some networks ask to send them additional information. In our system you can use the following parameters:

  • {QUERY} is a keyword. A title of the page is used in the popup script as a keyword by default.
  • S1, S2, S3 are additional parameters. How and when use it you can read below.

If you use third-party affiliate tracker then it makes sense to set up Postback. If you need any help, ask our managers to set it up for you. Most publishers don’t need to fill it. You can find a detailed statistic about your traffic in the section Stats.

The next section is for keyword substitution. If you select Automatic Title, a keyword will be the same with the title of the page. If you select Custom title then you can write any keyword. Also, there are two more combinations. We recommend you to choose Automatic Title. It will be enough in most cases.
