  • Whats the max file size you would allow for 468 x 60 banner ads?

    I am using Php ads New to deliver non generic banner ads that my ad clients custom make for display on my forum...

    My web master set a 30k file limit

    But I just got a STUNNING 147k banner

    It was more a mini movie than a banner - it was awesome looking!

    But I asked em to reduce it - I got it back reduced to about 58k...

    And it looked a little leass sharp and less impressive.. bummer..

    whats the vibe out there on banner file size allowance?

    Wahts the max reccomended?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your call really, considering though that for users who are restricted to a dial-up internet connection, files of this magnitude will take far longer to load and will generally slow the page down.

    I tend to stick somewhere around 20k-50k for banners on my site.

      It will take someone on dialup about 30 seconds just to download that 150K "banner" and that isn't counting the rest of the page. It has been shown that for every 5 seconds after the first 12 seconds, you will lose 10% of your visitors as they move on to other sites... so that 150K banner will cause you to lose about 30% of your visitors right off the bat. I limit any banners to 15K or less.
