I've been getting a few questions asking about a "good configuration" from a few Sphider users over the past few days. The following configuration, based on experience, has proven to be ideal:

***Ad Network Configuration***
This configuration is, in my opinion, the best way to configure the ad server to work with Sphider as it allows you to monetize search results as well as allowing others to show ads on their sites for extra income.

Two channels will need to be created, Ads for Search and Ads for Content.

When creating the Ads for Search, prefix the name with an underscore like this: _Ads for Search. This will keep the channel hidden from publishers yet still allow advertisers to select it. This is the channel you would use for your Sphider integration (see way at the top for the code).

The second channel, Ads for Content, should be configured with no extra limits - as is.

The work flow simplified. By configuring the channels above, an advertiser can select to be seen on your search results AND/OR on your content network. When a publisher creates the ad code for their site, it defaults to the Ads for Content channel. Remember, the ad server has its own indexer and will deliver ads based on page content.

***The End Result***
By configuring the ad server this way, you have effectively created your own Advertising Network just like (do I dare say it? nah) the big search engines.

What is an add channel?
You setup content channels in the ad server once it is installed. You must have at least one channel in the ad server. Depending on how you want to structure your setup, you can have just one channel, or as many as you see fitting your business model.

Publisher ID?
This is the publisher account number which ads are to be tracked from. Every ad server comes with a house publisher account, 1002.

Adserver location?
The location of the ad server. If you are looking at the code I have provided, this is the URL path to the XML feed.

Hey, great work!, i have a question, it`s possible to use this code with OpenAds Server? i`m actually using this one, because i had problems with Inclick. Help please, and thanks for this.

Openads can't do the sponsored links since it doesn't do the same thing inClick does - Keyword matching, bid-for-placement PPC, text support via XML.

What problems did you have with inClick? If you were having issues with getting things started, you can ask us for assistance.

You will need to download and install the ad server designed for Zend Guard, not Zend Optimizer. You can download this from our website.
