Developer Drive:
Building a PHP Ad Tracker Data Object Design and Coding
February 08, 2012 @ 12:57:54

Continuing on from the first part of their tutorial series about creating a simple ad tracker for your web application, Developer Drive is back with part two, a more in-depth look at the actual object design and code.

In our last PHP Ad Tracker lesson, we constructed the database tables for our ad banner application. Now we are ready to construct the data object that will hold the variables and functions that will display, add, edit and delete the data in those tables.

They cover each of the variables they'll be using with a summary of what they're used for as well as the various functions to be defined and what they'll return. Following this, they get into the actual development - creating an "ads" class and defining the methods to get the current ad count, get the number of clients and pull the actual client/ad data.

Developer Drive:
Building a PHP Ad Tracker Creating the Database Tables
January 16, 2012 @ 12:48:30

On Developer Drive today there's a new post (the first in a series) from Gerald Hanks about building an ad tracker in PHP. In this first part he sets up some of the background - the database that will hold the tracker information.

Banner ads for services related to the web site owner's industry allow customers to view products that tie into the site owner's core business. In exchange, the web site owner can charge the banner ad owner for every impression (banner ad appearance) or click-through (when a user clicks the banner ad). In order to build a banner ad management system, we must first create the database tables that will hold the ad information, the client data and the activity schedule for each ad.

He includes the SQL you'll need to create a few tables - the tracking table for the ads themselves (their metadata), the clients table to handle the groups wanting the ads and the activity table to track views and click-throughs.

PHPAdsNew and Google Adsense Integration
April 11, 2006 @ 07:03:27

Surf around the web for a while and you're sure to notice something similar about a lot of the pages out there - the Google Adsense ads. They've almost become something people expect on a site (well, except for the large commercial ones), and, utilized correctly, they can have a positive effect on your wallet. In this new post from Miles Evans, he lets us in on a secret of how to use phpAdsNew to work with his Google ads.

Alright this is a powerful concept with very little effort on your part. I went over the open source PHPAdsNew in a previous review but I didn't really get into some of its slicker features, specifically when it comes to integration with your favorite contextual ad publishing system. In this tutorial I will go over how I use PHPAdsnew to help me create, track, test and dynamically rotate my Google Adsense ads.

Once you've gotten phpAdsNew installed, you're only nine steps away from reaching a setup just like his. It makes use of the customization allowed of the HTML on the adsense ads to create custom rotating ads.
