Summary

This is an ad which takes an embed code that appears as a "popup" in the middle of the page, which the user must close. You must size the embed code to fit the popup appropriately. You can choose the frequency for which it should be displayed to the user. By default, it displays once per page load every 5 minutes (300 seconds).

Event Tracking

In addition to core event tracking, this ad format also tracks these events:

  • Official Views: The number of times the ad was presented to a user (not the number of times it served)

Embed An Example In Your Media Kit

Customers who wish to embed the example on some "Media Kit" page on their website can do so in one of two ways:

  • Option 1: If you have Wordpress and the Broadstreet plugin, you can use this shortcode anywhere in any post to render the example.

    [broadstreet ad="30417"]
  • Option 2: If you do not have Wordpress, or choose not install the Broadstreet plugin, you can embed this javascript code snippet into your post:

    <div street-address="30417"></div><script>
    (function(d, s) {
      // CLICK MACRO AND CONFIGURATION SECTION
      var destination = '%%CLICK_URL_ESC%%';
      // DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
      var js, bjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      js = d.createElement(s); js.async = true;
      js.src = "//ad.broadstreetads.com/display/30417.js?sa=1&"
        + (window.broadstreet ? 'init=0' : '')
        + (destination.indexOf('CLICK_URL_ESC') >= 0
          ? '' : '&destination=' + destination);
      bjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, bjs);
    }(document, 'script'));</script>
