Power Ad allows you to display AdPress Ads on any website with HTML and JavaScript. Without Power Ad, you can only display and run AdPress campaigns on the WordPress blog in which AdPress is installed. Power Ad changes this. You can now display the Ads on any website, whether they are a WordPress blog or even a static HTML website.
