    Chains

    How do you setup your chains? How do you do that? I am trying to figure this out. Thanks

    Can you please explain what you mean by "chains"? I'm a bit baffled.

    I'm guessing you mean default chains right?

    OK well I use Burst and my top network so their ad code is hard coded into my site html.

    In the Burst interface they then offer rich media defaults. So I generated my fastclick codes, and then uploaded them onto my site so that they can be found at http://www.example.com/ads/fastclick468.html

    I then point all my Burst default impressions to that html file. Fastclick also offer rich media defaults, and my bottom network is banner connect, so I generated my banner connect codes and uploaded them as before to
    http://www.example.com/ads/bannerconnect468.html

    I then point the fastclick defaults to that file. bannerconnect then fills all my spare inventory, so that is where my default chain ends.

    In the ad networks you also normally have to set up a non-rich media default (so just img src and href tags) so I use this for internal promotion of my other sites, so I make a 468x60 graphic for site 2 and upload it
    http://www.example.com/ads/site2.gif
    I use that as the img src tag, and then point it to http://www.example2.com

    I do actually have a tutorial for setting up defaults at AdBalance which goes into a little more detail if you are interested:
