Ad specs

  • Ad size: 240 x 200 px; your ad must be exactly this size.
  • No flash or movement in the ads, please.
  • Ad formats need to be .JPG or .PNG files.
  • Please include a border on your ad if the background color of your ad is white.

Please note:

  • You probably won’t get a lot of clicks; consider this a display ad vs an ad designed for clicks and high conversion.
  • You can change out your ad and/or website link at any time on our easy-to-use ad management interface.
  • You can pay by check, PayPal or credit/debit card.
  • The ads rotate. If, by chance, you don’t see your ad one time when you visit, know that it’s in a rotation and it will show up soon;  all the ads get equal air time.
