Flash versions

Link, click counter

Normally it is intended that when the user clicks on a banner, the browser will direct a page that shows more information in relation to what is being advertised. The address of this page (which can be the cover of the client's website, or better yet, a specific page for further information) is called " link ". Interempresas counts the number of times a banner or button was seen (impressions) and how many times it has been clicked the same. In the case of Flash banner, so that such a thing is possible, they have to follow some specific rules.

Click counter for flash banners

In the case of a flash banner, behavior when clicked must be set to the same. Interempresas recommends using technology clickTAG , which allows count the clicks. [See the explanation about clickTAG (in English), or view practical case (in Spanish).]

Have your banner has a button, and give it the following code:

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(clickTAG, "_blank");
}
}

The variable name must be spelled"clickTAG" (with "TAG" in capital letters and no space between "click" y "TAG") and not "click tag", "Click Tag" or any other mode. Not have to specify the URL to which the banner should link. Must indicárnosla us . The structure of Flash ads may require some type "_root. " Or "_level0. " At the beginning of "clickTAG ". The result would be "_root.clickTAG " or "_level0.clickTAG ".
