How to set up a banner

Banners allow for custom content to be displayed above the search results when searching for a specific term, catching the eye of the visitor to expose them to relevant information of your choice.

  1. In the navigation, go to Tools Banners
  2. Ensure the correct engine is selected from the dropdown at the top right of the screen
  3. Click the New button at the top of the list
  4. Fill out a name for the banner in the Name field. This is only for your own reference and will appear in your MyCludo banner overview
  5. Enter at least one search term, each added by clicking the plus icon. Triggering terms are not separated by comma, but added individually using this plus icon. Remember that you can make use of special syntax to cover abbreviations or certain patterns – see more in Best practice for banners
  6. Use the visual content editor to create the content for the banner. Clicking the code icon (<>) in the menu allows for HTML editing
  7. Optional: Add a start and/or end date for the banner from the From and To fields
  8. Optional: Add a target audience in order to only display the banner to certain visitors (requires the Audience feature)
  9. Click Save
