Advertise blended tile example

Sponsored tiles appear on the main Home page, and topic Home pages. These are blended adverts, in that they blend with existing content on the page, and require no artwork so can be an easier option for busy clients. They come in different styles, depending on the content.

Tiles appear as an image with link text − they are labelled as sponsored content and sit within the main body of:

You can choose a single page or multiple pages for your sponsored tiles, so your adverts can appear on pages which are directly relevant to your business. The list of topic Home pages can be found in our website footer.

How it works

  • companies select the Home page(s) they wish their sponsored tiles to appear on, subject to availability
  • there will usually be no more than two or three sponsored tiles per page
  • designs differ depending on where the content appears on the page − this is intentional
  • once a page is booked, then only that company's sponsored tiles will appear on that page. (Note that sitewide banner adverts will also appear on the page)
  • sponsored tiles will be randomised between a group of tile slots − there is no preferential order of presentation. This is to keep the adverts fresh.
