  • About our banner ads

  • The 468 x 60-pixel headline banner ad is featured at the top of the forum page, directly beneath the cross-menu. This placement has been proven as the absolute best for banner ads in a forum setting. Your ad will go into shared rotation with other ads (typically 6-8). Rates are as follows:
    • 30 days for $95 ($2.75/day)
    • 90 days for $175 ($1.94/day)
    • 180 days for $275 ($1.53/day)
    • 360 days for $450 ($1.25/day)
  • Your ad will receive approximately 77,000 page impressions per month. This is a SHARED, non-exclusive space. Our system selects a random ad with every page load (i.e. it is put into rotation). Your ad expires when your purchased time runs out. We cannot guarantee the number of impressions you will get.
  • How do I start an ad or renew?

  • Simply navigate here and upload your banner and set target website address. You will then be given the choice of length of time your ad will run. Once you are checked out, your ad is up and running. Simple as that!
  • What if I’m graphically challenged?

  • No problem! We will design your banner ad for you! Generally turnaround on this process is around three days and the cost is $100. Contact us for more information!
  • How is my ad performing?

  • In your profile area, you will see an option for “my ads”. Within that area we have provided the ability for you to track impressions and clicks among other important variables for your campaign.
