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, and we have actually added two more. Skimmed Gold is a half fat (and sized) version of a Gold Banner. It will be shown half the time. Periodic Gold is a pay-monthly version of the banner, which is perfect for seasonal ad campaigns or one off promotions.

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.

Polemi Concentration Camp

As you approach Polemi from the B7, you pass the Kamanterena Winery on your right. Just beyond that, if you are paying attention, you will see a lookout tower that wouldn't look out of place on a WW2 movie.

Ayia Napa Sculpture Park

The Sculpture Park in Ayia Napa was built in 2014, and since then has been delighting tourists and locals alike with its eclectic range of art work. Last summer we visited the area and had to include it on our itinerary. What started as an orderly photo shoot soon descended into an excited clamber along the many paths that criss-cross the landscape of the park. Far too numerous to feature them all, we present some of the many weird and wonderful sculptures you can see when you visit this wonderful park.

A short walk through the countryside around Kallepia

Now that we are getting the occasional dry day again we thought it time we started our selection of blogs on walks in and around the countryside of Paphos. For our first excursion we are visiting the village of Kallepia, situated near the Ezousa Valley and Minthis Hills Golf Course.

Ezousa Estuary

A couple of years ago we stumbled across a sad little memorial at the mouth of the Ezousa River. We thought we would check it out again a few days ago, to see what the area looked like after the rains. The question was, how would we get to it?
