Question on writing javascript?

I was wondering if somebody could point me in the right direction. I am looking to write javascript code that just shows advertising to new visitors of an ecommerce site. I have the basics just not sure how to write it for audience conditions.

I'd probably go with a cookie. If they have it then don't load the ads. This could be done from the server as well. That way you wouldn't need to perform an AJAX request or multiple refreshes/redirects.

I found this article that explains the use of cookies fairly well - http://www.pontikis.net/blog/create-cookies-php-javascript

Thanks Sean appreciate that..
