Banner ads run across the top and bottom of each page. And, like sidebar ads, banner ads switch whenever a reader clicks on a new page. Content stays fresh and readers pay attention.
To see for yourself, refresh this page or click to a new page. Notice what happens to ads in the top and bottom banner space?
Also, when a reader prints an article or page, banner ads print with it! Most importantly, banner ads load first on a page, meaning other advertising or content isn’t there to compete for that all-important first instant, another great way to catch reader eyes.
We know these are important advertising spaces and limit sales to only 6 ads at any given time. This means your ad appears at the top or bottom of a page 1/3 of the time or on 1 of every 3 pages a reader hits.
- Viewers? Based on our current community of readers, your ad will get about 750,000 page impressions per month (110,000 visitors averaging 2 visits and going to 3.4 pages). And, as our community grows, views go up.
- Value? Your Cost-Per-Thousand (CPM) impressions is about $1.00! Try beating that rate. Not going to happen.
Size and Pricing
- Banner Ads are 726 pixels wide x 88 pixels high – $750/month or $1800/3 months
Create Your Ad
- A good ad has few words and contrasting colors. It should link to your website so readers will get more details and can contact you. If you want help on this, let us know.
