                  • Boost profits with ad sharing

                  Ad Sharing allows you to offer advertising revenue to users on your single site or Multisite network.

                  One of the best ways to attract new users to your site or network is to offer them a cut of the advertising profits from their blogs. Ad Sharing lets you do just that.

                  Ad Sharing makes it easy to split revenue in a fair way based on the number of impressions on users’ blogs.

                  The plugin keeps track of all the numbers for you, splitting revenue based on your selections.

                  Add this as a new feature to monetize your network and encourage your users to start generating more income for you–and for themselves.

                  Advantages of Ad Sharing

                  You’ve put in the hard work to get your network up and running so why not make some money?

                  • Fair, equitable and very attractive way to share ad revenue
                  • No need to touch the code or alter template files to insert ad codes
                  • Use any advertising partners you want – AdSense, context ads, etc.
                  • Sharing revenue motivates your users to promote your site

                  Ad Sharing
                  Easily set up your ad code and automatically insert your ads at the top or bottom of your posts

                  Ad Sharing is Easy to Use

                  You don’t need to edit theme files. Simply install and activate the plugin and choose:

                  • To display ads before and/or after your content
                  • Impressions split you would like to make with your users
                  • Code you would like displayed

                  Users can then enter their own advertising code and if they choose not to then you get 100% of the revenue.

                  To Get Started:

                  Start by reading Installing plugins section in our comprehensive WordPress and WordPress Multisite Manual if you are new to WordPress.

                  Login to your admin panel for WordPress or Multisite and activate the plugin:

                  • On regular WordPress installs – visit Plugins and Activate the plugin.
                  • For WordPress Multisite installs – Visit Network Admin -> Plugins and Network Activate the plugin.
                  Please note
                  • If you have an older version of the plugin installed in /mu-plugins/ please delete it.

                  For single-site use:

                  In your dashboard, go to Settings > Advertising to configure the plugin settings.

                  Ad Sharing - Advertising menu
                  You’ll see a number of settings in this page, let’s go through them one-by-one.
                  Ad Sharing
                  Ad Sharing Settings - Ad Sharing

                  Select your Ad Sharing percentage from the following defaults:

                  • Site 25% / User 75%
                  • Site 50% / User 50%
                  • Site 75% / User 25%
                  Ads will be displayed on the site based on the percentages you specify here. For example, using the “Site 25% / User 75%” setting, your site ads will be displayed 25% of the time, while user’s adds will display 75% of the time.
                  In this case (single-site use), the User would be users registered on your site with the Author user role. The plugin will display the Author’s ads within their own authored content, depending on the values you specify above.
                  If your authors don’t set up their own ads then the site ads will be displayed with their content and you’ll get 100 % of the revenue.
                  If you need values other than the defaults listed above, no problem! You can simply ask about that in our support forums, our team will gladly help with that!
