Ad campaign ideas:

Default[edit]

The default campaign is what everything falls back to once another campaign is completed (campaigns can be set up to run for a certain amount of time, or a certain number of impressions, or a certain number of clicks, etc.) These should almost certainly be simple text ads, with very little formatting other than style elements such as font characteristics.

Each of these ads will be linked to their definition on en.wiktionary.org

Campaign: Word links[edit]

This would be an HTML ad, full-size banner ads (468 x 60 pixels) to be placed at top of people's pages. They wouldn't be quite the same as Word of the day, because we can't set it up to be automated that way. But we could build a list all WOTD words as ads.

Test example[edit]

lay to rest verb: to lay to rest
 1. to bury
