Zone is an object that acts as a selector of Ads Places.

What is it for? Each site can be divided into several virtual zones. For example, a site about the new books can be divided into the conditional zones for children, adolescents, adults and older readers. For each category of visitors is preferred to show a corresponding set of ads. The object Place allows you to solve this problem, but its solution is necessary to target each ad. Object Zone allows to solve this problem based on the selective choice of a set of ads (Place) using defined rules.

Description – the description of Zone object. This description is not used anywhere and is added solely for the convenience of managing advertisements.

Zone Rules

Object Zone analyzes current page properties and tries to find appropriate rule. If rule is found, Zone object selects Place object defined in this rule. If rule is not found, default object Place will be selected. If default object Place is set to None, will be shown nothing.
