PAID Advertising For Members:

  • Leaderboard Bottom (Size 1140 x 150 pixels) - this size of banner will display at the bottom of most pages on our web site as a static or dynamic advertisement.  Static means as long as the page is not changed the ad will stay in place.  When we have just 1 advertiser for that spot it remains static at all times.  When we have more than 1 advertiser for the same spot, the Ads are switched out dynamically every 5 seconds in random order.  The Ad may or may not change with every page turn depending on the number of ads we have queued.
  • Leaderboard Top (Size 1140 x 150) - identical description to the above, except in this position it displays at the top of the home page only - high visibility!
  • Skyscraper (Size 248 x 567 pixels) - this size of ad will show on the home page only.  Each Ad in the queue will change every 5 seconds whether the page changes or not, unless we have just 1 advertiser for that spot them it will remain static.
  • Default (Size 248 x 250) - Static or dynamic, again depending on the number of Ads in the queu.  This ad space will show on most article pages on the site, typically on the right side but it may be anywhere on the page although your ad size itself will not change.  You can see our 'advertise here' examples on the right side of this very page you are reading.

Advertisement Specifications:

  • File formats accepted:  jpg, gif, or png.
  • File sizes:  No larger than 1 MB total in size may be uploaded.  Pixel dimensions for each ad space are noted above in the display ad options.  It is recommended you size your ads exactly for best display.  You can be a few pixels wider or narrower; if narrower your ad will naturally display smaller than the ad space allotted.  If larger, the server will scale your image down to fit the allotted dimensions.  This may end up looking quite terrible, squished, too small, etc. thus it is best to upload images to the exact specifications.
  • Link to any page or site on the internet: At the same time that you submit your advertisement graphic file, you may enter a link to another page or site - this is where viewers will be taken if they click on your ad.  Typically advertisers link back to their own site or a promotion page on their own site.
  • Cost:  Members wishing to display graphic ads on the web site will pay $200.00 plus 5% GST per ad for a one year period.  AGGA advertising time frame has been set at October 1 through September 30.  Regardless of when you submit your ad the cost remains the same and it will run out on Sept. 30.
  • Payment:  You may send a cheque or money order to the office for the full amount due; send to Member Services address found here. Once your payment is received at the office the webmaster is notified and will enable your ad immediately.  The other option is to pay by credit card - to do so you need to call the office as payment is not accepted online. You will be notified by email when your ad becomes active.
