The difference between "Banner block (script)" and "Banner block (iframe)"

“Block script” shows the content directly in the page code, so some complicated kinds of banners may not work.

“Block iframe” creates a frame of a certain size and creates a banner inside. Some ad networks, where the showing in frames is not provided, may not work with this variant. If you create a banner on HTML, it's important to add the attribute target="_blank" to the links.

How to hide banners from bots?

Use “Banner block (Script)”. Create a stream in the campaign:

  • Type “Forced”;
  • Filter “Bots: Allow”;
  • Action “Do nothing”

Why does the page open in the frame when I click the banner?

Add the attribute target=_parent to the banner link:

<a target="_parent" href="..."><img src="banner.png" /></a>

Can I use a redirect?

Yes, use the “Redirect” scheme in the stream. If you use “Banner block (iframe)” choose redirect “Redirect for iframe”.
