On-site ads

 

Foreword

Before starting implementation of the on-site ads plugin, please make sure you have initialised the AT Internet JavaScript Tracker and selected the plugin from the Tag Composer interface.

 

Principle

The objective is to measure clicks and impressions from on-site (self-promotion) campaigns, as well as campaigns displayed on your site for a third party, and then analyse this data.

 

Setting up the plugin

The on-site ads plugin can be set up within the Tag Composer interface. Two parameters are affected:

  • Automatic click management: When a click triggers navigation or redirection, browsers prohibit the measurement of these links. This management can force the measurement.
  • Automatic click management timeout: Period of time after which the automatic click management will force the navigation, even if measurement was not able to take place (in milliseconds).
 

Tagging

To tag your ads, the tracker exposes two features, publisher and self-promotion, depending on the type of ad to be measured.

These two features then expose three methods:

  • set: is used with the tracker’s dispatch method
  • add: is used with the tracker’s dispatch method
  • send: sporadic measurement of an ad

Publisher parameters

PropertyDescription
campaignIdCampaign name (ex: [label] or id[label]) (this parameter is mandatory).
creationCreative name (ex: ([label] or id[label])
variantName of the variation (ex: ([label] or id[label])
formatID indicating the format (predefined or custom, ex: [120×40]) (see Appendix).
generalPlacementGeneral placement (text ID predefined by us, to be formatted as [label]) (see Appendix).
detailedPlacementDetails of the placement (ex: [label] or id[label])
advertiserIdAdvertiser ID (ex: id[label])
urlURL toward which the link points. The URL is linked with the advertiser ID (ex: [urlEncoded])

variant property can’t be used without creation. You must indeed define a creative name before adding variant.

Self-promotion parameters

PropertyDescription
adIdID to be created in the Settings zone which characterises the group “campaign > category > creative > variation” (ex: id) (this parameter is mandatory).
formatID indicating the ad format (predefined or custom. ex: [120×40]) (see Appendix).
productIdID of associated product (subject to the SalesTracker option)

Undesired or unknown parameters can simply be removed from tagging; only “campaignId” and “adId” parameters are mandatory.

Optional parameters (only for send methods)

PropertyDescription
elemTagged DOM element
eventJavaScript event (prevent event propagation) – since v5.7.0
callbackFunction to execute – since v5.7.0
 

Tagging an ad impression

var tag = new ATInternet.Tracker.Tag();
tag.selfPromotion.set({
   impression:{
      adId: 'id',
      format: '[60x60]',
      productId: 'id'
   }
});
tag.dispatch();
var tag = new ATInternet.Tracker.Tag();
tag.publisher.set({
   impression:{
      campaignId: 'id[label]',
      creation: 'id[label]',
      variant: 'id[label]',
      format: '[120x40]',
      generalPlacement: '[label]',
      detailedPlacement: 'id[label]',
      advertiserId: 'id[label]',
      url: '[urlEncoded]'
   }
});
tag.dispatch();

 

Tagging several ad impressions

50 impressions per page maximum

var tag = new ATInternet.Tracker.Tag();
tag.selfPromotion.add({
   impression:{
      adId: 'id',
      format: '[60x60]',
      productId: 'id'
   }
});
tag.selfPromotion.add({
   impression: {
      adId: 'id2',
      format: '[90x90]',
      productId: 'id2'
   }
});
tag.dispatch();
var tag = new ATInternet.Tracker.Tag();
tag.publisher.add({
   impression: {
      campaignId: 'id[label]',
      creation: 'id[label]',
      variant: 'id[label]',
      format: '[120x40]',
      generalPlacement: '[label]',
      detailedPlacement: 'id[label]',
      advertiserId: 'id[label]',
      url: '[urlEncoded]'
   }
});
tag.publisher.add({
   impression: {
      campaignId: 'id2[label2]',
      creation: 'id2[label2]',
      variant: 'id2[label2]',
      format: '[60x40]',
      generalPlacement: '[label2]',
      detailedPlacement: 'id2[label2]',
      advertiserId: 'id2[label2]',
      url: '[urlEncoded2]'
   }
});
tag.dispatch();

 

Tagging an ad click

 

Examples with a link

<a href="url" onclick="return tag.selfPromotion.send({elem:this,click:{adId:'id',format:'[120x40]',productId:'id'}});" >Link</a>
<a href="url" onclick="return tag.publisher.send({elem:this,click:{campaignId:'id[label]',creation:'id[label]',variant:'id[label]',format:'[120x40]',generalPlacement:'[label]',detailedPlacement:'id[label]',advertiserId:'id[label]',url:'[urlEncoded]'}});" >Link</a>

 

Examples with a form

<form action="url" method="get" onsubmit="return tag.selfPromotion.send({elem:this,click:{adId:'id',format:'[120x40]',productId:'id'}});" >
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>
<form action="url" method="get" onsubmit="return tag.publisher.send({elem:this,click:{campaignId:'id[label]',creation:'id[label]',variant:'id[label]',format:'[120x40]',generalPlacement:'[label]',detailedPlacement:'id[label]',advertiserId:'id[label]',url:'[urlEncoded]'}});" >
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>
