Adwords shenannigans

I had a fiendish problem to solve today. A client wanted their adwords to link to a page that didn’t actually exist.

The page was a search result but he wanted the advert to link to a different search result every day.

Sad to say, Google don’t give you that facility, but with a bit of clever coding, we are proud to announce that Brown Bear Media do!

It did entail a bit of ‘going round the houses’ with Adwords pointing to one website where we recoded the url depending on date and then shunted the user to the right page, but it works beautifully and allows us to help our client try and improve their advertising.

I really enjoy techie coding days like today and if that makes me a bit of a nerd, well hooray for nerds!
