  • Who is interested in doing a Banner Exchange?

    I am looking for any other forums that would be interested in doing a banner exchange to help drive up traffic. My site has been up for about 4-5 weeks and have about 950 registered users, in addition to several hundred anonymous visitors weekly.

    If you are interested, please post your contact info here along with your forum address.

    Thanks.

          That http://www.vBexchange.com site looks promising but there is no information on the details of the program so I will not be signing up until you guys provide the details and options available to potential members.

          For example, my http://politicsforum.com is to advertise only on certain types of forums. So what categories do you have set up?

          What software are you using for the exchange software? How does it handle slow server connection?
          I don't want my site hanging up because the banner will not load due to slow server.

          What banner sizes are available?

          How many categories do you have?

          Why is the site black? It may keep otherwise good sites away because sites with black backgrounds send a "watch out" signal to many people.

          Why is the site poorly designed? Do you not want to attract people? Why should someone join a service when the site is so poorly designed? perhaps the service quality is the same as the site design etc.

          Anyway, enough rants for now.

            >> For example, my http://politicsforum.com is to advertise only on certain types of forums. So what categories do you have set up?

            There are no categories. We check every site before we approve it. We require your site to have a vB forum and no adult content. If this grows I will consider maybe an adult vB exchange and maybe more categories too.

            >> What software are you using for the exchange software? How does it handle slow server connection?
            I don't want my site hanging up because the banner will not load due to slow server.

            It is using a php banner script that I made mods to that I found on hotscripts.com. It is hosted on one of our Dell PowerEdge servers with dual 2GHz XEON. All banners are stored into a MySQL DB so there is no issues with banners being down or slow on someones server.

            >> What banner sizes are available?

            At this time we only allow 468 x 60 If you try to add any other size, the script will not allow you to.

            >> Why is the site black? It may keep otherwise good sites away because sites with black backgrounds send a "watch out" signal to many people. Why is the site poorly designed? Do you not want to attract people? Why should someone join a service when the site is so poorly designed? perhaps the service quality is the same as the site design etc.

            In the other thread many people were intrested in this so I ran with the idea. This site is not to make money or anything.. Just a resource. I just put a page together to help out. I will be adding more to it in the next few days. But for now it will do. It is just a free banner exchange. Deciding to join it or not is your choice.

                How many forums signed up so far?
                Also, is there an option to use text banners instead of graphical?

                    Just curious....why don't I see those 4 or 5 banners on your main page where it said "Your banner goes here"?

                      Ok, if you decide to change it to a 234x60 banner I will sign up my http://politicsforum.com site
                      Otherwise no cause I need some space for another banner spot where I will sell ads.
