Only Premium members can advertise on WoodAlert (aside AdWords). Premium Members have the possibility to advertise their business on several portal sections, including Directory and Member pages, Market, Jobs, Conferences and Tradeshows or News. There are 4 advertising possibilities:
Banners should not exceed 1MB and should have one of the dimensions described above. The following types of files are accepted: GIF, PNG, JPG or SWF. For flash files, you will need to specify the target URL with ClickTag, in order to properly register the ad clicks in our reporting tool. The URL may not be hardcoded in the SWF file. Animated banners must have the animation length 30 seconds or shorter.
Ads must take up the entire space of the image size you've chosen, and they can't appear sideways or upside down. Image ads must be relevant to the advertised site. Ad images must be clear and recognizable, with legible text. We don't allow unclear, blurry, or unrecognizable images to be used in ads. WoodAlert doesn't allow flashing backgrounds or other distracting ads, ads that mimic our content or layout, ad behaviors that might trick a user into clicking the ad. Image ads and the content they point to must be "family safe."
Views and clicks
When a site user/visitor accesses a page which contains a text ad
, it is recorded as 1 view. A 300x250 banner
is recorded as 3 views, a 336x280 banner
is recorded as 4 views and a 160x600 banner
is recorded as 5 views. Premium Members automatically receive 10000 views/month, meaning 120000 views/year. They can increase this limit or publish ads exclusively using their admin panel. There is no click limit. Premium Members can access their admin panel and check ad performance within the last 30 days using our stats reporting tools.
