A banner exchange is a free service designed to help you advertise and promote your website.
By inserting a small piece of code we supply, onto your web page,
you will display banner ads from other exchange members,
and in return, your banners will be displayed across the exchange network.
You should join so that you can find customers and build your traffic through FREE advertising on a variety of websites. Most other banner exchange programs allow you to use one banner at a time. We know ads do better if there is a variety, so we allow you multiple banners. When your banner is about to be displayed, our program selects one of your multiple banners (according to the weight you have assigned) to be displayed. There is no need to download any special software. Our server handles everything for you. Including real time stats.
We also give you a 10:9 exchange ratio. Most other banner exchanges give you a 1:2 or 2:3 exchange ratio. Our exchange ratio is one of the best in the banner exchange industri.
