How does Ban Man Pro determine which campaign to select?

 
 
Ban Man Pro selects a valid campaign in the following way:
  1. If calling by keyword, these campaigns always take priority.  In version 4 and higher keyword campaigns are now assigned to zones.  This allows you to have multiple sizes on a page and use keyword for each.
  2. Next, if no keywords are sent, or a campaign does not exist for the given keyword, Ban Man Pro pulls all evenly distributed valid campaigns for the selected zone. (Note:  If a keyword was sent but not found, Ban Man Pro will serve a 1X1 pixel image unless you provide a zone number or name.  If a zone # or name is provided, Ban Man Pro proceeds to step 3.)  Ban Man Pro pulls all valid even campaigns, determines the sum of the internal weightings, then pulls a banner based on those weightings.
  3. If no valid Even campaigns are found, Ban Man Pro next pulls all weighted campaigns.  

    Weighting System of 100:  If a weighted campaign is found, Ban Man Pro picks a random number between 1-100.  If the random number falls within the weighting of the selected campaigns, the campaign is shown, otherwise Ban Man Pro proceeds to step 4.

    Weighting System of 1000 (Version 3 and higher):  If a weighted campaign is found, Ban Man Pro picks a random number between 1-1000.  If the random number falls within the weighting of the selected campaigns, the campaign is shown, otherwise Ban Man Pro proceeds to step 4.

    Weighting System Relative (Version 3 and higher):  If a weighted campaign is found, Ban Man Pro picks a random number between 1-Total Weightings of All Valid Campaigns.  As long as at least one campaign is valid at any time, it will be selected.  This weighting system makes it easy to avoid showing a default campaign.

    In Sequence (Version 3 and higher):  If one or more campaigns have been specified in the sequence, Ban Man Pro will pick the next campaign in the sequence.
  4. If no weighted campaigns are found, Ban Man Pro attempts to pull a default for that zone size. Default campaigns are selected only if the banner size matches that of the zone size.
  5. If no valid defaults are found, a 1 X 1 pixel blank image is served.

Note:  Calling campaigns by keyword, zones by Zone Name, and evenly weighting campaigns is only available in Ban Man Pro 2.0 and higher.
