    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    I haven't made any changes to my sites in many years. I'm still running vB 3.8 along with a number of old scripts that are no longer supported, including a self-hosted script of OpenAds/OpenX to manage an inventory of banner ads that display on my sites. I'm thinking about making some changes, but I'm not current on what solutions are out there, so I thought I'd ask here what you all are using.

    I want to be able to do the following:
    • Maintain an inventory of banner ads that I show for free (generally non-profit organizations in my niche)
    • Sell banner ad campaigns to customers that want to target my site(s)
    • Have control over the display of the ads (currently I display some text and a link to my advertising page underneath every banner shown, but the text is different depending upon whether the ad is a free (non-profit) or paid campaign).

    Ideas?

    Have you considered Google DFP? It will do everything you need.

    No. I want a self hosted solution.

    Ok, I understand. I use both Revive and DFP. I use DFP with pricing tiers for some types of my direct advertisers so if Adsense has a higher paying ad it fills in the slot instead of the direct advertiser. I use Revive all other direct advertiser ad slots which don't have Adsense equivalents.
