Q2: My site does not show the banner
Why does my website not display the banner?
Normaly there are two kinds of reason why a flashbanner doesn't get shown.
In most cases a wrong HTML code is responsible for problems like that. Flashbanners can't be displayed using the IMG-tag, which is used for GIF and JPG files.
Make sure you have uploaded the banner to your own server- or any other place on the internet where you are allowed to store and access files. Your banner can't stay on the 123-banner.com server, since it gets deleted after a short time. Your banner has to be downloaded and stored to another place from where you will access it later.
Often people forget this and include their banners directly from the 123-banner.com server to their websites. Then they wonder why the banner suddenly doesn't get displayed anymore.
