I have 4 different advertisers that I'm trying to work with. They offer banners and discount specials. Now I'm not quite finished with my training, so maybe this will be answered in a class. The example given to me so far is that a review page should be subtle so Google does not just classify it as a bridge page. Somebody is using these banners and ads, but how? I would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you. Bob

Hi Robert, honestly, my experience has shown me that banner ads generally do not sell as a well as a review page sells them with affiliate links, but there are options.

My main thing is to put ads as widgets on your site, so they do not get int the way of the reader, reading the content you write, but it's on the side. Here is a tutorial on widgets and putting up banners, essentially, you would just have to put in a code or banner image into the widget area of your site and put in the affiliate link on it so when people click on the banner, they'd go to your affiliate link: Note: In this case, the example is a WA banner, but you would just do the same thing, but use your own special banner.

Thank you for this advice. It's late for me and I need to save this until tomorrow. Bob

Always better to do this when fresh :)

In order not to be seen as a bridge page, your content needs to be much more robust than the real estate (size) taken up by ads. I kind of use a 3 to 1 ration, 3 column inches (I'm an ex-newspaper guy) of content to 1 column inch of advertising. That's just my opinion.

Sounds good. My content is much larger, and I want it on the sidebar. Thank you. Bob
