    An advertising contract is a set of conditions applied to banner shows. A contract may have users assigned to it; the users may have different permissions for this contract.

    Contract owners are users who have certain permissions for a contract. Users can be assigned to a contract only if they are members of a group given the advertiser permission in the Advertising module settings.

    Click Through Rate (CTR) denotes the percentage of clicks to banner views. Expressed as percentage and calculated by formula: (C*100)/S, where C is the number of clicks and S is the number of shows. A 10% CTR banner is considered successful.

    A contract weight is a value affecting the probability of selecting the contract when choosing a banner for display. When the system selects a banner to be displayed in the public section, the system first selects a contact with the greater weight. The more is the contract weight, the more is the probability of the contract to be selected. After the contact is defined, the system tries to select a banner from this contract. The more is the banner weight, the more is the probability of the banner to be selected.
