Setting The Priority Level (Optional)

By default, BuySellAds detects the highest priority for a channel and sets the priority level tied to the site in Adzerk to that level. However, it may not be the best priority level for the zone.

You now can choose the level and manually optimize how it should be served. After you have selected an Adzerk Priority, save all changes.

Adzerk Priorities are designated by a number: 1 is the highest priority while 100 is the lowest.
