Nick Halstead's Blog:
How to make AuctionAd$ dynamic with PHP
May 07, 2007 @ 10:30:00

On the Programming and Management blog today, Nick Halstead has posted a quick look at how to make the AuctionAd$ you include on your site a bit more dynamic.

Before you read the rest of the article (you may not be interested in the coding side) the end result is that I have built an AuctionAd$ display system that adjusts the keywords it uses based upon the visitor clicking adverts. This means that your visitors will automatically adjust what is displayed for them by clicking or not clicking on the adverts shown.

You still have control over the keywords you use but, instead of a supplying a single keyword, you supply a list that it initially selects from and then adapts based on your visitors interaction.

He shows his method - grabbing the keyword information from a SQL database that has a weighting system based on the number of mouseovers for the ad for that keyword. The information is stored in a SQL database and is updated dynamically via an ajax request.
