Banner Ad Pricing

  • Banner advertising is sold at a flat rate of $10 CPM. This means for every 10 bucks you give us, your banner shows up 1000 times on our site (this is often referred to 1000 "impressions").
  • Price does not vary with different banner sizes. We do this because it's simpler. Send us your banners in the sizes you'd like them to appear from the list above, and we will distribute them across the impressions you ordered. (Note: we typically recommend sending as many sizes as possible, but really there is no set rule for what works or what doesn't with this — sometimes an ad works best targeting one particular spot, other times the "shotgun" approach works better.)
