Rotating Self Advertisement

Hi Yola, you know what would be AMAZING? Something that no other site builder offers? Rotating self ads for my site... what do I mean?

Imagine you have several services that you want your clients to know about but they might not know to look for them. So if on my site, on the right hand column I could create images that advertise my other lesser known services while my visitors roam my site, the nice ads of mine will be in the right column for them to see. I think calling them suggestions would be better than ads. I think that would be awesome.

The thing that would make this work is if it could randomly place picture in the right column, I could do this manually but it would take a long time and it would be a lot of effort to keep it fresh. So if I add images to a widget that does that automatically my life would be easy.

The only way around this would be to use flickr gallery and use images there to serve as these adds, but they are not clickable to a page that would better describe the product or service.

Maybe you already have this and I dont know, but if not, i think it would be great.

Thanks team YOLA!

Hi, if you want to rotate a picture on every page load or automatically change every so much seconds, you can use a JavaScript banner rotator if you want! Go to the following URL for a banner rotator generator: http://www.htmlbasix.com/banner.shtml Then, when you get the code, you can just drag and drop an HTML widget and paste the code in where you want it and it will either change the image every page load or change every seconds you set (You can change how it changes on the generator)

Yes, on my homepage, on the side bar. There is a ad on the side. And it changes every 15 seconds or so. Check it out at http://www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc if you want!
