JSearchAd is a lightweight easy to use Joomla! plugin that opens up the value of the Banner component in Joomla! even further.
Once installed, by simply adding meta keywords to your banners, when a user searches your Joomla! website, if they enter a keyword that matches what you have specified in the meta keywords, the banner is displayed. This means the users of your website will see the banners you want them to.

By pushing your users to areas of your site, you can increase conversion more effectively.

Tip: Set up Google Analytics on your Joomla! website and look at the search terms being entered by your users to ensure you trigger banners for your most common searched terms.

JSearchAd can also automatically set the necessary utm variables for Google Analytics tracking. This means you can easily see in your analytics which banners are performing the best.


I've been looking for a while for a way to better target my joomla banners on my search results page based on the search entered by my users. So when I came across this extension I had to download it.



It was very easy to install (basically the same as any other plugin) and configure. There's only a few options. As I had banners already setup using the normal joomla banners component and I have always enetered meta keywords against each banner I create, it just worked. The banners that matched the keywords I enetered into search to test just appeared. Brilliant.



It seems so simple.

I can't comment on the google tracking as I don't have analytics installed but I will try this now.
