SocialAds 2.8 brings Contextual Ads & Search Ads to Joomla !

context sads flatYes ! You heard it right !! Contextual Ads is the BIG new feature in this SocialAds release.

In line with our commitment to bring you the most versatile and feature rich Advertising solution for Joomla, we now introduce our next BIG feature - Contextual Ads or Keyword based targeting.  For contextual ads to be accurate, its necessary to be able to accurately find the most important keywords in a page, such that the user viewing the ads will find them to be closely related to the content he is seeing.

Keyword Density, Pattern matching, reference matching ... the list of methods that can be used to accertain accurate keywords can go on and on & this is a technology that is continuosly under improvement. Google does this pretty well with Google Adsense & Adwords products.And now, SocialAds has brought it to Joomla ! 

Search Ads which leverages contextual ads to display Ads relevant to searches is the next awesome feature. Using this, Search pages on your site can be monetized by showing relevant Ads alongside !

Both these features are a huge boost & SocialAds can now boast of a combined feature set of Google Adssense & Facebook & LinkedIn Ads all bundled in one ! Contextual Targeting can be used individually or in combination with Geo & Social Targeting if needed.

With these features, SocialAds is now highly recommended for Content heavy websites like News Portals & Blogs ! Make sure you get SocialAds for your site today !  You can demo the Contextual Ads feature here & the Search Ads feature here.

We are super happy to let you know that SocialAds 2.9 is here with Awesome New Features + Joomla 3.X Support ! Techjoomla

SocialAds 2.9 brings you a whole new Advertising Pricing Model which we call Advertising Wallet. With this new model, SocialAds introduces the concept of Campaigns & Budgets. You add money to your Ad Walllet, create any number of campaigns you want & set daily spending budgets for the campaigns. You can create Ads against campaigns without having to pay & checkout for every Ad.This not only streamlines the flow for your advertisors but also allows them to group their Ads in campaigns & manage their spend in a better way.

Selection 002

Google Ads, Facebook & LinkedIn Ads already work on this model. Note that SocialAds will continue to support both the Orignal Pay per Ad mode as well as the new Ad Wallet mode. You have the option to choose which suits you best !

If you wish to switch your payment model to the new Ad Wallet mode, we have provided a quick migration tool that will convert your user's existing ad balances to the new model on a prorata basis. The Migrator also supports a migration from Ad Wallet mode to Pay per Ad mode.

Note that from this version onwards we have dropped support for Joomla 1.5. Existing subscribers can download this release from the my Subscriptions area. Please look at our updated documentation for details on migrating to the new mode if you wish to. If you are not using one of the greatest Advertising Systems for Joomla yet, Buy it today !
