Banner Advertising on Paphos Life


Meet The Banner


The banner advert appears on the top and bottom of each forum page, and on all the pages of the main site.

Currently, a maximum of 25 slots are available for advertising. The ad rotates each time it is viewed.

Page views vary significantly depending on time of year and weather etc. However, since Paphos Life started 6 months ago, we have been regularly attracting over 12,000 page views per day. Initially this was mainly on the forum, but as the other parts of the site have been rolled out they have also proved popular.

On each page view, 2 banner ads are displayed. On the forum, they appear at the top and bottom of the page, and are rarely if ever visible at the same time. However, because of the nature of the forum, they both get viewed. When a topic is loaded, the top banner is displayed. When the most recent posts are read, the bottom banner will be showing.

On the directory, again, two banner ads are shown, but one of them is in a portrait orientation, to fit in the side panel. When you buy an ad slot, we will create both the portrait and landscape versions for you. They can have different graphics if you want. However, on clicking, they will both point to the same link.

What this means is that a banner ad with a single slot, should be seen at least 25,000 times in a month.

What’s more, the banner ad is noticeable too. It changes each time the page loads, and on the forum, it is surrounded by useful site links. So people will look at it.

In addition to the banner ad, you also get an enhanced directory listing. This can include features such as a slideshow gallery, a sample of which appears below.


Sample Slidehow


We don't expect you to program your own slideshow. All you do is supply us with the images and text, and we will do the rest. The same is true for every other aspect of your advert.

Incidentally, if you are thinking of including a slideshow full of text, like our example, we don't recommend it. Text in graphics isn't readable by search engines and screen readers. We only did this because it is an example, and because the data is repeated below anyway.

The Packages

If you viewed the above slideshow you will know that two packages are available. These are explained below. If you click the "Order Now" button, you will not be asked for any payment. You will simply be presented with a form which you can fill in, and we will get straight back to you.

Once you have decided on a package, and are happy with it, we will then take payment. We normally take payment via a secure online payment gateway, though other methods are available on request. Please note that we are VAT registered, and the quoted prices are ex VAT.
