    Hey to all you programmers out there that need an idea this one is for you.

    A wordpress plugin that will serve ads we choose based on tags that we have applied to a wordpress post.

    I'm not sure if there's already something out there that does that, I've only been looking for about 10 minutes but it's on my wish list.

    What ad network you're going to use?
    Most networks serve ads based on content so only! :)

    What is that supposed to do for me?

    I'm not talking about adsense, they do a fine job already. I'm talking about having a list of what ad code to place into a widget or ad placement based on what tags are associated with the post.

    So if you had a post about the ipad then you could tag it with something like ipad giveaway and then you would show whichever ad you had associated with the tag "ipad giveaway"

    There has to already be something like this out there I just haven't found it yet.

    I am also looking for same thing... Let me explain more or break in step

    A simple solution where some one can login and add text ads, banner ads and then assigned relevant tags for them... Then it will automatically place ads on your site based on tags... If you have multiple banner then it will keep rotating them... You should be able to setup % of time any banner should appear if there are more then 1.

    You should be able to see stats for ads.. Like clicks, impression... LOL if it can go deep then more better... If it can't digg even then ok but banner based on tags needed...

    It will generate code which could be place where ever i want ads......

    I got some multiauthor blogs and it's not possible for me to go and add relevant banner with every one... I can use adsense but they have limitations and i could use my own banner solution with them...

    I believe there are some option like openX for doing it but i wanted some easy solution which even a noob can manage... or may be it's time i start reading and learning openX modules...

    So if any one know such solution please point me there........

    This does it.

    hxxp://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advertising-manager/

    You can configure it to run on author, category, tags and for post and pages. Its not perfect but its the best yet that I've come across and it does everything that you (OP) have specified.

    You could create something like this by scraping the landing page of each ad/offer URL and running semantic analysis on it to generate tags. Then tag your content using the same engine. Where tags are shared, display offer.

    I could kiss you right now, it seems perfect for what I wanted, basically has everything I was asking for. Will have to play with it a bit but definitely seems like the solution I was looking for.
