Key consumer areas of the website where we place banner advertising include the glossaries (e.g. Herbology101), the directories (see inset), and the articles.

Advertising on the glossaries can benefit additionally by targeting specific keywords or taking exclusivity for a particular term. By choosing specific keywords, your ad will be one of a select group of ads that will be shown on those pages. With exclusivity your ad can be the only one to ever appear on that page.

Ads can be straight images (including animated gifs) or Flash ads. Click on the example link beside the price to see a sample ad of that size and format.

Keywords and Exclusivity also allows you to "exclusively own" pages (they will only carry your advertisement) or select keywords where your ad will be part of the rotation group for that page.

General Ad Rotation
ads in general rotation appear throughout the site on a randomly-generated basis. They appear on all pages not designated Exclusive or limited to specific keywords.
Keyword Ad Placement
Certain pages search for ads that match assigned keywords first, and then pull from the general rotation pool if they do not find matches. Examples: Supplier Listings pages look for ads designated with the keyword "Supplier" first; the Herbology101 pages seek out ads that match "herbology", "herbal medicine", "homeopathy", "naturopathy" or the specific herb that is being displayed. Keyword ads also appear in general rotation.
Exclusive Ad Placement
If a company is willing to "own" or "sponsor" a page, no other ad will appear on that page. Exclusive ads may also have keywords attached, and will automatically appear in the general rotation. Exclusivity will not be granted on any Directory pages.
