Banner characteristics

You must provide a banner and a tag line with the following characteristics:

  • Banner: 468 pixels wide by 60 pixels high, GIF (can be animated) or JPG, preferably less than 10K [smaller banners display faster].
  • Tag line (optional): Up to 10 words. Your tag line will be visible on browsers that do not support in-line images (e.g. mosaic or lynx).

Your banner will be linked to your website.

A banner impression occurs each time one of our page showing that banner is accessed. Exclusivity is not guaranteed, i.e. we may use rotating banners on some of our pages.

Banner pricing

Our CPM rate (CPM = cost per thousand impressions of your banner) for banner advertising depends on the page (see table above).

You select on what page(s) you want your banner to be impressed and you determine the maximum number of impressions that you want to make for a given period. The minimum order is for $1,000. Contract period is one month, renewed month by month. If the number of impression that you ordered is not reached in one month, your contract will be extended until this number is reached.

You will receive weekly statistics regarding impression of your banner by email. Statistics include a detailed list of all hosts that have seen your banner, sorted by domain category, as well as the list of hosts that have clicked-through i.e. actually followed the banner link to get to your website.

Impressions of your banner on our computers (for testing purposes) are of course not counted.

Banner setup

There are no setup fees. If you want to start advertising on MPEG.ORG, all you need to provide is:

  • A banner (see banner characteristics).
  • The URL to which the banner should be linked when people click on it.
  • The MPEG.ORG page(s) where you would like your banner to be placed. In general you do not have exclusivity, i.e. banners will rotate. You are charged only when your banner is displayed. CPM (cost per 1000 impressions) depends on the page.
  • The email address to which we should send the weekly statistics (banner impression and click-through logs)
  • A P.O. reference for $1,000 (we will send you the invoice once the impressions have reached this amount).

That's all. We install your banner immediately when we receive all that.

Terms and conditions

Prices listed are in US Dollars.

Net payment due in 30 days upon delivery of first impression during contract period, month by month.

Impression orders are subject to space availability.

Prices and terms are subject to change at any time and without notice.

We reserve the right to refuse the display of any banner, including but not limited to, banner which is misleading, inaccurate or otherwise in poor taste.
