Flash and Image
 
Ok this could be a problem with regards frequency but I'm not sure.

I've added a Category - header banners
I've added two banners to the category one flash and one image.
Flash is set to mega high and the Image to low frequency.
I now create a billboard with the Flash and the Image as the two banners and set it to select at random.

So heres the problem, The frequency of the banner will both be the same if I'm thinking correctly because the billboard doesn't apply a frequency.

The billboard doesnt apply the frequency, however it still applies on an ad by ad basis. Therefore your Flash should appear about 5 times more (thereabouts). Is that whats happening?

Doesn't appear to be like that. Getting about 50/50. I'm guessing because the billboard picks at random it picks either flash or image. Then if I had say 5 images in the category they would then be randomised by frequency.

ok. I think I see what you mean.

If you have 2 ads in a billboard and its set to randomly show 1 (1 being an image and 1 being flash) then yes, you have got a 50/50 chance of seeing a flash ad and an image. From there, your frequency kicks in.

Does that sound like the problem?

Yup for me anyway :). Which might mean a problem for others.

At the moment we use the flash as the fillers and the image banners tend to be from people paying for adverts. I suppose the way round it would be to add/repeat the same flash banner 5 times and add 1 image to the billboard. Or change number depending on Ratio required.

ya. hmmmm. I wonder if adding a frequency to the random ad billboard selection would sort it. Ill ponder it.

Thanks again for your helps and feedback
