Header/footer advertising

Posted on

Header/footer banners:

These are premium banner advertising slots which appear in the header and footer across every page of the website, including the Home page. Advertisers have complete flexibility over their artwork design in this space.

How it works:

  • There are three header/footer banner advert slots on every page of – one slot in the website header and two in the footer
  • These advert slots are shared slots, randomly serving the artwork of a maximum of four companies between them
  • This means your advert will appear randomly in one of the three slots (appearing in either the one header or two footer spaces) on a page for an average of 75% of visits to
  • To see how the large adverts change randomly between the max. four companies, and to see the actual advert size (above image may not be true to size), please visit different pages on
  • Your advert links to a page on your website.
