Description

DYNAMIC WEB ADVERTISEMENT AND CONTENT DISPLAY SYSTEM

FΓELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to the delivery, presentation, and management of advertising on the Internet and specifically to a system and method for enabling dynamic campaign advertisement in accordance with real time analysis of web pages, predefined rules, browsing activities and technical requirements.

DESCRD7TION OF THE PRIOR ART

(The simplicity of browsing the web coupled with the relative low-cost of accessing the Internet, in that regard, by establishing web sites merchants, vendors and other information providers has an unparalleled opportunity to reach enormous numbers of potential consumers through advertising.)

Given the wide and ever-growing reach of the web as a source of consumer information and the increasing consumer acceptance of electronic commerce, advertisers have clearly recognized the immense potential of the web as an effective medium for disseminating advertisements to a consuming public.

Types of advertisements vary from an advertisement moving across the screen to a traditional fixed advertisement, which may appear in the unused portion of the web page.

Despite their widespread use as tools to drive electronic commerce on the

Internet, banner ads and other similar advertising and marketing mechanisms has generally yielded unsatisfactory results and thus has usually been avoided by most large advertisers. For example, in addition to the fact that banner ads are statically displayed once loaded by a web browser, banner ads and other similar marketing tools do not allow different and dynamic marketing content to be displayed within a browser window. In that regard, several approaches exist in the art for implementing web based advertisements. However, all suffer serious limitations of one form or another that have sharply restricted their desirability and use.

Unlike traditional advertising environments such as T.N or newspapers, the Internet is an interactive and dynamic media, hence the advertisement campaigns have to be adapted to this new environment.

Prior art tools for planning and creating Internet campaigns are unable to provide real time dynamic advertisement campaign. Such a deficiency may cause the campaign to be useless. For example, if ads are positioned in within a "scrolling" web-page some of the ads may never be exposed to the user view, as most users actually view only small portion of the page.

Prior art techniques which have approached the above problems provide solutions only for specific cases, such as adapting static ad resolution.

US 6,314,451 discloses an advertisement management system, which selects the advertisement to be downloaded rather than having that selection or its content embedded in the web content page.

Many patents in the prior art involve customization of content. Some relate to the customization of the advert resolution to suit the users resolution and others relate to the customization of content to suit the profiling of the users.

US Patent number 6,185,589 discloses an automatic banner resizing for variable- width web pages using variable width cells of HTML table.

While all of the previously discussed systems attempt to customize advertisements, none of them analyze the web page structure, real time browsing activities, device type and viewers' interaction, or create dynamic advertisements or content which is modified to match the user's viewing format preferences. The object of the present invention is to provide an ad management system that supports dynamic presentation of various advertising formats, adapting ad characteristics according to environmental conditions such as web events and user interaction SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides a web-page advertisement playing system that enables real time control of web-page advertisement presentation according to predetermined instruction rules, technical browsing parameters, real time events, web-page structure and content. The system is comprised of: instruction rules database wherein the rules can be added or changed by an ad designer; a first Java script program that analyzes technical browsing limitations and related web-page structure for creating ad playing instruction sets based on predefined rules and said analysis result; a second Java script for playing at least one ad wherein the ads appearance, timing and characteristics are changed according to created instruction sets and the occurrence of identified triggering events

The instruction rules and instruction sets relate to the combination of multiple ad characteristics and triggering events, wherein the activation of each ad is influenced by combinations of different characteristics and events.

The instruction rules and instruction sets also relate to the combination of multiple advertising campaigns appearing in one or more web-pages, wherein the activation of one advertising campaign may influence other advertising campaigns.

The ads' controllable characteristics include size parameters, location parameters (e.g. screen position, scrolling etc.), animation behavior parameters (e.g. motion, speed etc.), appearance period and timing conditional logic, and style format parameters (e.g. color, fonts).

The technical browsing parameters include: browser type and version, operating system type, communication bandwidth speed, width and height of browsing window, IP address, etc.

The triggering events include scheduled events, browsing events (e.g. downloading), and browsing interaction with user (e.g. mouse movement, scrolling, etc.

)•

The instruction sets include logic parameters representing ad characteristics in relation to triggering events.

The instruction rules include logic commands of ad type and preferred characteristics of ads in relation to parameters of technical browsing limitations and web- page structure.

The system further includes a campaign wizard for enabling campaign designers to create instruction rules by selecting relevant ad types and scenarios and selecting the preferred characteristics of the ad presentation.

The system supports any type of media format that is supported by a browser including images (gif, jpg, bmp...), flash, video (mpeg, asf, rm, ra, mp3, wma, wmv, mov, qt...) etc. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

DETAILED DESCRD?TION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The main concept of the present invention is to enable real time control of web- page advertisement presentation.

Today campaign advertisements cannot be changed dynamically according to real time analysis of browsing events and specific characteristics of the displaying device. As described in the background, limited solutions are provided for adjusting ad size according to the screen resolutions.

It is further required to allow the campaign manager to determine campaign preferences in regard to dynamic browsing activities.

The present invention suggests a new campaign management system that enables a campaign manager to determine ad type and performance parameters. These preferences are translated into campaign instruction sets, which influence the presentation of the web- page advertisement. The activation of the advertisements is performed by a Java script program that is activated once the user starts to download the relevant web-page.

Fig. 1 illustrates the technical environment in which the present invention is practiced. User terminals (10) are connected to the network (12) using a browsing application (14) and can access available web-sites, which are located at designated servers (16). The advertisement campaign management server (18) comprises of an ad database (2), a campaign management application (22), and a campaign rules record database (24). The campaign management application activates Java script programs (26), which can be located at the management server or optionally at the client terminal.

The campaign management operation as suggested by the present invention is detailed in the following paragraphs.

Fig. 2 illustrates the block diagram of the campaign management application. The application is mainly comprised of two components: the campaign design wizard (202) and the ad composer (201). The campaign design wizard enables the campaign manager to determine the campaign type and scenario and to select the relevant publishing web- site and presentation preferences according to pre-designed advertisement formats and scenarios (203) and optionally based on publisher web-page format (204) (such as frames, scrolling etc.). The wizard's application yields an output result of campaign rules. The ad composer which is implemented as a Java script program determines the specific ad campaign scenario preferences in real-time according to the predefined campaign rules, real-time analysis of the displaying device capabilities and web-page structure and content. This process of ad composing results in a set of instructions (205), which determine the operative activation of the ads.

Fig. 3 illustrates the real time interactive process of the advertising campaign operation. At the first step, the user initiates a request for downloading a web-page (301).

In return the respective server site returns an HTML web-page, (303) which contains a command instruction to call the advertising servers (302) and activates an initial Java script program (304). This initial script is programmed to identify the user system characteristics (305), including its browsing capabilities. Optionally, this program further analyzes the publishing web-page (305a). All of this information is transferred to the advertising server. On the advertisement server's side, the ad composer determines the campaign type and scenario (307) and assigns the respective ad content source location

(308). The ad composer's operation instruction sets and relevant information of ad content are transferred to the user's device browser including a calling instruction for activating the main Java script. At the next step, the browser calls the main Java script program (309), which is active during the browsing session of the specific web-page and controls the presentation of the campaign advertisement. The program first analyzes web- page structure and content (310). This analysis result, combined with the instruction sets, determines the ad presentation operation (311) in accordance with triggering events.

The whole process of the campaign operation is initialized by a single HTML tag command, which activates the initial Java script program. There is no further need for any other HTML objects within the web-page; all advertising campaign operation is controlled by the Java script programs and campaign rules. The embedded HTML tag need not to be replaced at any time during the campaign or between campaigns; only the Java scripts and campaign rules are changed.

Fig.4 illustrates a flow chart of the ad composing process. [This composition operation is processed by a designated Java script (the initial Java script)]. At the first stage the campaign type is selected according to the pre-defined campaign rules and the publisher web-site content and format. At the next stage the operation scenario of the respective campaign type definitions and parameters are selected according to user system and browser application, based on the campaign rules. For example, the campaign rules may define the proper range resolution of an ad image and the ad composer selects the best possible image resolution within the defined range according to technical limitations of the user's device.

At the last stage, all selections and preferences of the campaign operation are translated into respective instruction sets. The main Java script uses these instruction sets in order to activate the campaign presentation accordingly.

Fig. 5 illustrates the web-page analysis process. One function of the analysis process is to locate empty spaces in the web-page for placing the campaign ads. There are two basic approaches for identifying empty spaces. The first approach (501) is to explore the page structure "inch by inch" and check the relevant tag definition for each page area. Areas containing "body" tags type are marked as empty. The second approach (502) is to search for empty spaces within the HTML tags, which define the page structure. The concept is to check the tag text and image components and estimate the area that they occupy according to font definitions and user device screen resolution. The estimated area is compared to the defined tag size for identifying empty spaces.

The web-page analysis further relates to page format and content. Identifying the keywords within the page text can be used to relate these keywords to ads (for example highlighting a keyword which is associated with the relevant ad) or even selecting the relevant ads accordingly. The identification of page format properties such as "framing," "scrolling," or background can be used for adapting the ads accordingly. For example the ads' colors may be changed according to page background.

In some cases the analysis procedure can be followed by editing the web-page structures. For example, a web-page's background may be changed or a long text paragraph structure may be edited to enable the positioning of ads at more attractive locations.

Fig. 6 illustrates the real time process operating the campaign ads. This process, which is handled by the main Java scripts, tracks all browsing activities including user behavior such as mouse movements or selections. The program identifies triggering events such as timing schedules, scrolling operation or mouse movement in order to activate new ads or dynamically operate the ads (e.g. animation). All of these operations are preformed according to relevant instruction sets, which define the triggering events and their associated actions. The instruction sets and rules relate to multiple ad characteristics and triggering events, hence combinations of different triggering events and rules influence the ad activation and presentation, and the activation of one ad may influence the activation of another.

Fig. 7 illustrates the campaign wizard operations. The first function of the campaign wizard is to enable the campaign manager to plan the campaign by determining its exposure definitions of population size, category, etc. The manager is presented with the relevant publishing web-sites and selects the appropriate one according to his campaign management policy. These campaign management tools are well known in the art and need not be detailed. According to the present invention, it is suggested to provide the user with' design tools that enable the campaign manager to determine guiding instructions, which will affect the real time presentations of the campaign ads. The manager is able to select the preferred ad type and scenario and determine his preferences regarding all controllable parameters of the ads such as resolution, appearance timing, location, etc. The parameter's activation can be defined with association to triggering events, (e.g. changing ad size or resolution according to user behavior).

Types of campaign advertisements vary from an advertisement moving across the screen to a traditional fixed advertisement, which may appear in the unused portion of the web page. Advertisements in the present invention may gradually come into focus on one side or may even be an animated advertisement, which moves in place or across the page. If the advertisement cannot be displayed on the particular page, the system will choose the next best advertisement format for that particular user. The system supports any type of media format that is supported by a browser including images (gif, jpg, bmp...), flash, video (mpeg, asf, rm, ra, mp3, wma, wmv, mov, qt...) etc.

The parameters of the instructions for controlling the ad presentation can include all physical properties, attributes and display techniques of an object, including and not limited to size, shape, geographic screen location (upper, lower, upper-left, lower-right, right, left), movement speed and direction, and appearance styles (fade, flash, zoom). It can also include timed events, from page load or time lapse of ad load as defined during or a time interval thereafter page load. The web page administrator can assume full command over global campaign parameters by definition of an advertisement/content policy, which applies boundaries to geographic screen locations and advertisement/content types on their web pages (e.g. permit ads in empty spaces only, permit movement over content, define a transparency level for ads when permitted to move over/overlay content). The advertisement administrator must then adhere and will be restricted to instructing adaptive information within the permissible parameters as defined by the web page administrator.

All of the manager's selections and preferences are translated into campaign rules and commands. These command rules are used for the real time composition of the ads according to analysis of the user system and browsing limitations as described above. According to alternative options the campaign wizard application may include a ready-to-use pre-packaged library of campaign configurations, which will require only the attachment of any standard image file and can be instantaneously launched for those who opt not to construct their own step-by-step campaign. The complexity of instructive and adaptive qualities of timely campaign appearance and behavioral characteristics are virtually unlimited.

While the above description contains many specifities, these should not be construed as limitations on the scope of the invention, but rather as exemplifications of the preferred embodiments. Those skilled in the art will envision other possible variations that are within its scope. Accordingly, the scope of the invention should be determined not by the embodiment illustrated, but by the appended claims and their legal equivalents.
