Contextual Targeting

In addition to targeting users per country or by audience, we are also able to target banner advertisements based on the context of page content and user interest. For example, a travel ad for Greece could only be shown within the context of Greece on our website, making sure that the ad is relevant to the user. We offer a wide range of targeting options based on keywords, subject areas, geographic topics and even time periods. All targeting types can be combined and we are happy to provide you with a custom quote.

Exclusive Bookings

We can also offer exclusive bookings on our website, meaning that no other ads will show apart from yours. These come at a higher price which depends on the precise targeting parameters, time of year and general market conditions. Please get in touch to receive a quote.

  • Movies or TV shows about history

Sponsored articles cost $650 each as a one-time payment and the sponsorship will remain on that article in perpetuity. Most articles reach thousands of readers every month.
