Selling Advertising and Google's Opinion

I have a site with an index page PR5 and am thinking of doing some advertising at my site. I would prefer the ads not to be the same products, but similar. Does Google have a problem with banner or text ads? I think adverts can actually make the site look more professional. I currently have my own banners up around the site, but I don't want my sites crossed linked. Also, what would be the going rate for a banner or text ad? My site gets moderate traffic. I know Google frowns on selling PR, but I really would just like some nice looking banner/text ads. I'm going to sell the advertising cheap anyways. Thanks for any help.

Why not Google Adsense? Did you try? You can match it with yoru site colors etc and looks nice. You can se it everywhere these days.

It'll probably pay more and be less hassle than selling banner ads too.

On first glimpse Googles Adsense seems very inflexable ie you have to have the ads on the right hand of the page which doesn't suit our page design - am I right in this or can they be positioned anywhere. I haven't delved any deeper as I was put off by this.

Adsense can go anywhere on the page...not restricted to the right.

auinfo: You can place the ads anywhere you want on your page. Also, to faciliate a placement that will fit your site, Google provides four differenct formats you can use:

1. 468 x 60 Banner
2. 120 x 600 Skyscraper
3. 728 x 90 Leaderboard
4. 300 x 250 Inline rectangle

Further, you can use a different format on different pages. For example, we use the 120 x 600 Skyscraper on all pages but our forum, where the 728 x 90 format works better.

Hi Wellzy

I doubt that Google could care less on what you advertize and/or promote. This is something you should look at (and worry about) from the customers point-of-view.

Banner ads do very little in terms of advertizing. Google AdSense is good except for one thing, clicking a link closes your site and takes the sufer away. Most likley they won't be back. Unless you have something like 20 million hits per day, Google won't change this. I use them on my links pages, but make sure each Link page opens in a new window.

My opinion, sign up as an affiliate with products that will suit your visitors. But read up up all the tricks vendors use to get out of paying affiliates. Then promote these instead. Works for me :o)
