Banner Ads

Literally hundreds of pages on TUG run our rotating banner ads, on top of that our social media outlets and newsletters regularly funnel traffic to these pages on top of the native search engine rankings we get from google on a myriad of Timeshare related keywords.  Timeshare owners, and those interested in timesharing find these pages for the content on them, they are not just dead end pages made for traffic alone!  Many of these advice articles have been in existence for 10+ years and are updated regularly as the Timeshare industry and information change.  Your target audience of Timeshare owners, buyers, sellers and all others interested in anything Timeshare related visit these pages in droves every day!

Our ad program is designed so that all banners are equal and are randomly rotated throughout our site to generate the number of impressions purchased per level. This lets you determine the amount of advertising exposure you would like on TUG and order the level you need to create that exposure. 

  • The Bronze Level would generate 7500 quarterly views
  • The Silver Level generates 15,000 quarterly views
  • The Gold Level provides 25,000 quarterly views
  • The Platinum Level is 90,000 quarterly views

You may request multiple banners, they can either be the same or several different banners linked directly to your home web page ( or any other web page you select ).  To clarify as some Internet sites muddle the terms impression, hit, page view, etc etc.  When we mention you will get 90,000 impressions, we mean your banner will appear on 90,000 different pages loaded by someone visiting our site each month.  1 page view to us equals 1 page view, not 1 page view equals the number of "hits" that page generates by the users web browser having to download 100 different items from the page.  Rest assured you are getting what you pay for!

Our advertising fees are listed below for each Banner Level.  (note Google AdWords currently charges more than $2.00 per click for the "Timeshare Users Group" Keyword!). This also includes both a direct linking of the banner ad and a listing in either this Business Ad page or the  Resorts Ad page.

Banner Ads size requirements are 468 x 60 pixel image in gif format. This is the same size requirement as most current Internet banners.  Animated GIF images are perfectly acceptable.
