    Default 728x90 Monetization Bar - Rotate up to 3 ads

    Could the Monetization Bar be set for unlimited banners in rotation instead of just 3? If unlimited is not possible, at least 10.

    It would also be a nice option to have banners expire after a certain amount of days and stop showing.

    I'm its possible but I can tell you Dan is going to not recommend that. If you had 10 ads to show, how long would it take to show all 10?

    The visitor could be gone by then. And if you make them rotate fast enough to get all 10 in will they have time to even read them? Beside seeing 10 ads fly by will just annoy visitors.

    If you use adsense that will count as your 3 per page.

    Always keep in mind this theme is setup with what works. If 10 ads in the leader board was a good practice, Dan and his team would have set it up for that.

    If I am running adsense, I don't rotate at all just let the one ad sit there. If I am doing any other type of ad I never do more than 2. Thats just me.

    Default Unlimited or 10 ads showing

    Sorry, but I disagree....

    Ads change every 4 seconds, and most visitors are at my blogs for at least a few minutes reading new posts, and sometimes longer. 10 ads would rotate in 40 seconds giving at least two views of each ad per reader minimum at my blog.

    I think it is better than looking at the same three ads for several minutes.

    Was there an official response to this in the end? I wouldn't mind being able to rotate 4 ads.

    If you want to rotate more than 3 ads there are plugins and scripts you can use to do so.

    For example you could just load an iframe of a rotation script.

    The rotation code loads every banner, so if you have a lot of banners it will effect your load time.

    Another factor is say you have 10 ads and the views just missed clicking the first ad.. That visitor is not going to wait 36 seconds to click an ad.

    The only thing you should be doing with the rotator is testing ads to see which convert the best on your site. and eventually only rotate a couple high converting ads.

    Default Plug-Ins to rotate Ads

    Where do you get those plug-ins? We actually purchased another theme because it rotated ads.

    Dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Search

    Just search for: rotating ads or rotation

    Also google is an excellent way to search for plugins.
