I want to monetize "links"/words in my forum. But I don't to go through a third party (Viglink, Skimlinks) to do it. I want 100% of the revenue and 100% control over the advertisers, i.e. market/forum specific ads. What I would like is to do this in Ad Seller Pro. As an example if my forum, one manufacturer I would like to buy ads is Tyco. Every post that has the word Tyco automatically hyperlinks to the site, file, or pops up a box with a small description and a link, it gets logged and I get PAID.  If there is already a feature or mod that does this than sorry for the long example.

I would imagine a script needs to look at all the words on the page being viewed and goes something like Pseudo Code:

If the word Tyco is displayed then go to Ad Setting for "This is a Keyword ad for Tyco Intergrated security" and use these settings and log any clicks...

That way it never permanently links to a page, pop up box, script, etc.. or modifies the page itself. So if someone stops paying the link disappears.

The existing Ad Seller Pro menu barely has to change at all.

Under Manage Ads > Add Ads > Settings you would have all the same criteria Ex:

Title        "This is a Keyword ad for Tyco Intergrated security"
Ad Type     "Keyword Link" (This redirects you to another page, file, etc.) or Pop Up (This shows a pop up box with a small description or a service or product, links, etc.) or file

Align     Not Needed
Ad Background Color     White
Ad Border Color        Black
Ad Title or Keyword    Ex: "Tyco" or if it is a Pop Up box "Look at the new Alarm Panel fro Tyco(with a link)" or file

Start Date     01011971
End Date     01012071
Location          Not Needed

Show in all Boards     Uncheck
Show in Security        Check
Show in Access Control   Uncheck

Under Ad Locations           There wouldn't be anything as the board locations cover this. Or maybe someone would want to link words in profiles, forum stats, PM's, etc. but I won't.

As an Example I posted this. I made all the hyperlinks manually. The point of this long post is cant this be done automatically and can it be made for me to get paid?

Could be done but would require a new ad type.
And a new code edit to the main buffer to do any replacements needed.
