Banner Advertising Questions.
How are ads displayed on this site?
Ads are displayed on a rotating basis (except for page-targeted ads). That is, if there are ten banners currently in the rotation, each will be displayed, on average, once for every ten pages called by website visitors. If our current average is 30,000 page views per day, each banner would be seen about 3,000 times per day. Your ad remains in the rotation until the number of days selected has expired.
The goal of Welcome Home Black Hills banner web advertising is not to annoy readers but to get them to click on your banned ad, this will take them to your website. Please keep that in mind when designing your ad banner.
