Advertising on Orkneycommunities.co.uk


We are pleased to offer opportunities to advertise on Orkneycommunities.co.uk, on the Orkney Image Library, and on the main Orkneycommunities home page.

Our statistics suggests that these pages are viewed by more than 1500 distinct visitors each day, with significantly more at peak times, so you can reach a wide audience by advertising here. Even better, any income from this is ploughed back into Orkneycommunities to continue improving services for our members and our visitors!


 Placement on Orkney Image Library page  Placement on main homepage

On the Image Library page there are positions for 120x150 pixel advertisments in the right hand column. Position 1 is always at the top, position 2 is always second and the ads in the positions labelled 3 rotate their order to get an equal time spent in third position. Ads on the Image Libary page can also be displayed with the pages for three Image Library Images of your choice.

On the main Orkneycommunities home page there are two positions for 400x50 pixel banners, labelled 4 and 5.

Ads can be in gif or jpg format, and gifs can be animated to display a number of frames. A web address can be associated with the ad, so that when it is clicked it takes you to that web address.
