Hi, I have a website about widget news with around 2,500 visits per day. This large widget store site (alexa rank between 7000 and 8000) has approached me saying he wants to place an ad on my homepage (I think he wants homepage).

My questions would be : do you think I should do it? I already have around 3 adsese ad units on each page that i don't wanna touch. Would placing this paid ad affect me in any way from a SEO perspective?

What would be the best way to do this, meaning should i just add an image banner? he suggested some kind of banner that contained several links to his category pages, but I don't wanna do that.

Also considering my daily traffic what would be a fair price for me to ask in case i decide to place an image banner on the homepage?

As long as you use a "no-follow" tag for the banner - I can see no SEO consequences for placing a banner.

As for your secondary questions, it is up to you to decide what type of banner to use and pricing will entirely depend on your market, your location and the amount the buyer wants to pay.

In some markets 2.5K visitors is a vast amount of traffic - in others it is tiny!
