Limitations of Advertisement Plugin
The oxwall advertisement plugin is one of the few plugins I regarded when I was new to oxwall (I still regard it now), it has some amazing features such as geo-targeting (yes, you can target an ad for a particular country/region with advertisement plugin), choosing specific position and pages to place ads, managing your ad and placement right from your admin dashboard and most essentially, it is free! These are awesome features, aren’t they? But is it really enough?
With no disrespect to the great oxwall developer who made this awesome plugin, I would like to say that the oxwall advertisement plugin is a way too limited to run your community website. Consider the number of people who publish forum and blog post everyday in your community website, now consider the number of people who read this topics, do you think you can do better with clicks and impressions?
Ofcourse you can do better!
Placing ads within blog or forum post will increase your click rate (ofcourse, impressions too) in an unbelievable manner, the truth is that users tends to visit the blog more often than any other page in your oxwall powered site, this traffic, most times comes from search engine and social media, so you need to take advantage of this “free traffic” and maximize your ads revenue.
