Some of the ads and banners on my website are very seasonal and reflect my campaign for Christmas shoppers. Should these be removed now that the season is past? Is there a rul

Kyle and Jay (magistudios) reckon that banner ads hinder a site, i.e they take away the focus - which of course is your content. I agree with them and am surprised at how few click throughs I've had from them in the past.

Just a thought for all you budding web designers! Banners aren't the bee all and end all!

I'm beginning to agree with that line of thought, Rob.

I would remove them.people might look at them and think this is old news and leave.

True, and that's definitely what I DON'T want to happen.

Pat

If you're gonna do any season make one for every holiday.

That's what I'll need to do! Thanks.
Pat

Yes, I believe ads should be removed when they are out of season. I replaced my valentine ads with St Patricks day ads in the beginning of march. You seem more current and involved with your page if it is "up to date".

I'd better get busy!!!

My affiliate programs automatically update the advs when seasons or special days change.

Hi Pat! I remove seasonal ads -- I get sick of looking at them, so I imagine others are, too. I also check to see how effective those ads are -- if they don't get clicked -- out they go! I like seasonal ads -- it makes my blog seem current -- like I know what's going on! I'm making sales for Easter already!

I was thinking I'd get a head start on Easter. ................Pat

Before you remove them I would see what other ads the merchants have to offer. They may have something for a season coming up or something that can be used year round.

Definitely....that's something I'd want to do. Thanks!

Pat

Hi! Yes, I would change them, I think it would show you are up to date with your site. I'm sure you'll be able to find the same products if you'd like but without the Christmas theme. Sharon brings a good point, there are more holidays to come! :)

I appreciate your input. It might be better for me to stay away from those that have such a seasonal look to them and stick to the generic product ads.

Pat

Hi Pat, Yes, I would change them. We've got St. Patrick's Day coming up and then you've got Mother's Day and Father's Day. People can start shopping early for those. I don't know if there is a rule of thumb per say, just thinking of the shopping needs for your visitors. Hope that helps my friend!

Yikes! I'd better get busy on some more blogs so I can start showing things associated with those holidays. I'm letting grass grow under my idle feet!

Pat

No worries! I bet you can take care of it all tomorrow! :-) Let me know if you need my help!!

I would guess yes, if they are seasonal.....

It makes sense to remove them, but I hesitated to do it if that was not the customary thing to do.

Pat

Yes, post ads for the upcoming holidays! Keep them rotating! Good luck Pat....
