The plugin is excellent, basic and yet powerful. Hope your next update will include country location of clicks

It is a great advertising management plugin.. I used some plugins before it and then deleted all , and kept Adrotate, it is simple and professionally working - even in the free copy. I recommend to have professional copy after 2 - 3 months of operating your blog, it is a must have plugin.

The plugin has a lot of options and even more on the pro version, but the documentation is lacking and it's somewhat difficult to operate and set up.

I've recently been testing a lot of plugins to manage advertising and very glad I stumbled across this one, it deserves to come up higher in searches. Many of the plugins I tried were either overly complicated or bloated, or reserved what I consider to be the two most important features (scheduling and click-tracking) for their "pro/premium" version. But THIS one - AdRotate - is just really well thought out, clean and simple, and easy to use without needing much in the way of documentation or tutorials (I'm sure that's available, I just found it very intuitive to use). It's free version has all the features I need to get started, but does offer more features in a Pro version that I'll probably update to at some (near) future date. Kudos to the developer for creating a nice lightweight plugin that covers the basic features one would need to simply display ads on your site, and know how many people click on them.
