Choose rel=nofollow or noindex in banner options

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

time and again a customer asks us to add a nofollow tag to the banner link, whether it makes sense or not, and because I see there is no way to edit link rel-tags for only one specific banner, I usually unlink the "real" banner from zones, create a second HTML only banner, where I enter the desired code with the banner file as image source, and link this one to the zone(s).

Working well, but tracking does not work. If I allow the html code to be changed for tracking (default), this code will end up in the page source:

… title="xyz" rel="nofollow noopener"target="_blank"><img …

(missing space before target!) while the original code was either one of those (no difference in result):

… title="xyz" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank">
… title="xyz" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">
… title="xyz" rel="nofollow noopener" >

Anyway, my first "Feature Request" is to add a simple option at banner details to enable/disable rel=nofollow.

Second request is an option to enable a direct link for a banner instead of the Revive delivery URL, which sadly would disable tracking, but having a direct link is another request from some of our customers. For now I also create a HTML only banner to make this happening.


PS: I found there is a way to add rel="nofollow" for all banners, just mentioning, but this does not help me.
