Reach the target audience for ads
The best and easiest way to target the “right” audience for your website’s ads is the usage of variety WordPress ads manager plugins. I definitely advise you to use them and make your life easier.
Let’s observe how to use WordPress ads manager plugins on the example of Aparg SmartAd plugin. Besides the great number of useful plugins for ads making, Aparg SmartAd provides you an opportunity to adjust your ads' audience in the WordPress. Each ad campaign you can control by Include and Exclude fields. You can add posts, categories, pages, and tags in each field. Through it, you can regulate who can see these ads. On the Include field, you may add the best category for your ad. The opposite one you can do with the Exclude field and limit unnecessary categories.
For example, let’s observe the case when you have WordPress blog divided into two parts: politics and sports. Supposedly, you have to post the advertisement of sports brand. Of course, you don’t want to post it in political part, because it will not interest them. But the sports part is the exact place for this ad. In this case, you might add sports section in Include field. Perhaps, your post can be the advertisement of Nike. However, you have an article about Adidas in the same section. The ad of Nike is not acceptable with the article about Adidas. So, you can add the article about Adidas in the Exclude field. Thus, this ad will be visible for each reader of sports section, apart from them who will read the article about Adidas. Remember the Exclude field is more powerful than Include field. Great!
