How to Create a New Click Rotator

My Click Boss Pro lets you create as many click rotators as you want. Simply fill out the following fields and then click on the Save button to create and add a new rotator. Once the new rotator has been saved, the screen will refresh and display the URL you will use to send traffic through the new rotator you just created.

Important: After the rotator has been created, you can list your rotators and click on the new rotators description to access a page where you can add links to it.

Please note that not all fields are required. Just fill in the fields that you need, for the click rotator to perform in the manner you desire.

The only required fields are: Rotator Description, Rotator Type and Rotator Style. All other fields are optional.

Here is a list of the available fields and their uses when creating a new click rotator.

Rotator Description:
Enter a description for this rotator. The description is used to help you identify this particular rotator in lists that contain multiple rotators.

Rotator Category:
You can optionally assign this rotator to a category. You can type in a new category name or select an existing category by typing the first few letters of a category and then selecting it from the dropdown list that appears. Some rotator listings allow you to search and sort by category.

Rotator Group:
You can optionally assign this rotator to a group. You can type in a new group name or select an existing group by typing the first few letters of a group and then selecting it from the dropdown list that appears. Some rotator listings allow you to search and sort by group.

Rotator Type:
Select the type of rotator you would like to create. You have the option of creating a Series, Rotate or Random rotator.

Series rotators deliver clicks to the first link until you have sent the selected number of clicks. Once the first link has been sent the selected number of clicks, the next link in the series will be sent clicks. Each link in this rotator will be sent clicks until it has been sent the selected number of clicks.

Rotate rotators send clicks to all links in a rotating fashion. Once a click has been sent to all links in the rotator, it starts sending clicks again starting with the top of the list.

Random rotators send clicks randomly to the links in the rotator.

Rotator Style:
Select the style of rotator you would like to create. You have the option of creating a smart or dumb style rotator.

Smart style rotators perform all tests selected and set to determine where a click will be sent.

Dumb style rotators ignore all tests except maximum clicks to send to a link and duplicate click handling settings.

Duplicate Click Handling:
This setting determines how duplicate clicks coming from the same IP address are handled. You have the following options.

Default Action – The rotators type and style determine how duplicate clicks are handled.

Send To Last Visited Link – A duplicate click is sent to the last link in the rotator that the click previously visited.

Send To Default URL – Duplicate clicks are sent to the rotators default URL.

Off – Duplicate click handling is turned off. A click could be sent to the same link multiple times.

Default URL:
Enter the URL you want to send all clicks to if there is no link in the rotator remaining that this click can be sent to. For example, this URL will be sent clicks if all links in the rotator have been delivered their set number of clicks or all fail any tests used to determine click eligibility.

This URL supports the pass through query builder language. Please see the manual section on pass through data handling for more information.

Rotator Code:
If you want to define a specific code to use for this rotator, enter it in this field. It must only contain letters, numbers or dashes. Leave this field blank to have an auto generated code created for you when the rotator is saved.

Notes:
You can keep any notes about this rotator you want in this field.

Rotator Link:
This field will contain the link to use for this click rotator after you click the Save button. This is the URL you use to send all traffic through this click rotator with.

You can add an optional sub ID to the end of the link “&sid=yoursubid” if you need to track sub ID’s for each rotator.

Once you have filled out the desired fields, don’t forget to click on the “Save” button to create the new click rotator.

After you have created a new click rotator, you will need to add links to it. Adding links to a click rotator is covered in the Managing Click Rotator Links section of the manual.
