Website Advertising

We accept jpgs, gifs, and standard Flash ads.

  • The maximum file size is 39K (39936 bytes) for all ad types.

Ad Dimensions

Ad space is available in the following dimensions:

  • Leaderboard (728x90 pixels)
  • Wide Skyscraper (160x600 pixels)
  • Medium Rectangle (300x250 pixels)

Animation

Ads should loop no more than 3 times, and stop after 15 seconds.

Flash

Your Flash ad must meet these requirements or it will be returned to you.

  • Size and Dimensions: The same as above.
  • Flash version: All Flash ads must use versions 5-8.
  • ClickTag: Camera-ready ads must use the clickTag variable so that we can track clicks. The proper code looks like this:

on (release) {
if (clickTag.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(_level0.clickTag, "_blank");
}
}

Note: Your actual destination URL will not be in the.swf file itself.

  • External Calls: Additional components, such as video, should be hosted by you, and the correct paths should be in place in all coding.
  • Expansion: Our ad slots are iframes, so your ad must be able to expand out of the frame to be visible.
  • Additional Information is available here:
