Bot Coding is variables that you can enter into the poster to create dynamic ads that will automatically generate unique content to help with your posting success.
You can add these variables located below anywhere inside your add or under "Bot Coding" Tab. For more information on how these work please view this example.
All information that you input under More Options tab is automatically saving under "Bot Coding" Tab. Your city and category selection is saving there too. Please go here
You can also use keywords/variables in ad_template.txt file (it is in the program's folder) to make keywords global, i.e. applied to all ads at once. If you input keywords above {BODY} keyword (it is template for ad body) then these keywords will override the same keywords in the ads body. If you input keywords below {BODY} keyword, then your ad's keywords will have more priority.
You can click Preview button under HTML Description tab to see the actual view of the ad without keywords (click it several times to see mutations).
