Learn How to Create a Default Banner for Your Doofinder Search

The purpose of banner advertising is to promote a brand, a product or attract the attention of your visitors to certain promotions.

At Doofinder we know how important this is, so we have the option of incorporating banners in the search of your online shop in a very simple and effective way. You can define banners for specific search terms, but what if you want the banner to appear on any search made by the users on your site? Well, now you have the option to show a default banner for all the search results. :grinning:

To create a default banner you need to access your Admin Panel and go to the Banners tab, inside the Search Engine in which you want it to appear.

 

After clicking on the ‘+ Add New’ button, you will see two options :

For the banner to always appear before a search, both options need to be selected, as the first activates the banner and the second makes sure it is displayed automatically. In the case of the default banner, you should not add any term in the field Search Terms, as the name suggests, this banner will always appear when a user searches on your site. The final step is to add the image of the banner (a URL or file) and the link.

Once you have saved the changes, your banner will be ready to be displayed when your potential customers use the search box of your online shop.

 

You need to bear in mind that you only have a default banner and if you create one and another later, the last banner that you save will appear as the default banner. Furthermore, you should know, that if you have created a banner to be displayed for certain terms, when these certain terms are searched they will override the default banner. In this case, it is best that the search terms you have linked to the banner have a Broad Match, to avoid the banners overlapping.
