  • We highly recommend that all Flash (SWF) files that are submitted to us use the industry standard getURL() method for handling links in the ad. Using the getURL() allows us to ensure more accurate tracking of ad performance via our ad system. Technical details on how to properly implement getURL() scripting in your ad are provided on Adobe’s and Macromedia’s websites.
  • If you do not have the capability to implement the getURL() method, all links/URLs should be embedded/hard-coded in the Flash (SWF) file.
  • To avoid compatibility issues, we recommend you make sure the “compress movie” option is unchecked when exporting/saving the Flash (SWF) ad.
  • All Flash (SWF) ads should be accompanied by a non-animated backup ad in JPEG or GIF format in case of difficulties encountered with the Flash (SWF) file.


We welcome the opportunity to place special/non-standard formats, but they must be cleared for compatibility with our production department prior to the posting of your ad to ensure the smooth launch of your campaign.
