A banner ad is a small framed graphic in .gif format. It has a brief "mouseover" describing the graphic. Because the graphic is linked to your Web site, a click on the graphic takes the visitor directly to your site. The cost is $25.00 per year for a small banner ad similar to the one on the right (roughly 150 pixels square), which is designed to be shown in the right gutter of the page. You must provide the graphic, which is your property and can be run on other Web sites.
Banner ads traditionally appear on a Web page that has some relation to your ad. The rate of the ad depends on its size of the banner, increasing by $25 for each 150 pixels in any direction. If you wish to have your banner appear on multiple pages, please contact us at publisher@ILovetheFingerLakes.com. We would be happy to discuss rates.
Please note: The cost for a banner ad on the home page is $300 per year for the small size and goes up from there. This page receives the greatest number of visitors (36,373 in 2010).
Feel free to inquire if you have something special in mind.
