Weight: Suppose an advertiser gives you 3 different images and they want to have you display all 3 of them to determine which one is getting the highest click-through-rate. You can add 3 banners all assigned to the same campaign and assign them all the weght of 1. This means that as the campaign is running, the 3 images will be displayed an equal amount of times, all getting displayed 33.3% of the time. Perhaps the advertiser wants you to display one of the banners more frequently, then you would weight that particular banner higher than the other two banners. It would then be displayed more times than the others according to the weight of the banner.
