Is your website https, if so just put in http for the url. You can upload the banner here so i can check the size if you want. Hope that helps

Getting a good response for the ads, thanks so much everyone as it hopefully drives some traffic for you and helps me keep IBH up and running.

I plan on doing this. Right now I am waiting for a funds transfer into my Paypal account. Hopefully it's there next week. It's one more thing I'll be able to check off my list!  ;)

Question: There are now so many adds at this point that via rotation, some of us - or our adds are not visible at times?

Is this how it works? 'Cause I am not there at the moment.....11:50 PM today.....

Thanks for clearing this up....

refresh the page, it will come up - there is only so much room there, it was bound to happen once a lot of ads were sold  ;)

OK, so I was right....just checking....

Sooooo, we know to do that, how will others who look at IBH know that - to see all that we have to offer.....that's the 69,000 dollar question.....

I am not a 'puter wizard, please explain..... :D

1.) CTR = click through rate      1       
2.) eCPM = effective cost per thousand impressions       4970
3.) eCPC = effective cost per click       $4.02
These are the numbers for all week

Please explain what this means, I know I had one click thru to the shop.
What are eCPM and why are there 4970 of them.

If I had only 1 click thru to my shop, why did this cost me on average 25 cent a day and the last day $2.35?????
I just like to understand what this all means...
Thanks a bunch.....

The 4970 is how many times your add was shown. The click is, 1 person clicked on your ad. The 4.02 means that is how much it cost you for that click. The more people that click on your ad the cheaper that will be. Not sure what you mean by the 2.35, the ad space costs the same all the time, the more clicks you get, the cheaper the cost per click will be.

Just wanted to bump this up! We are still keeping the discount coupon for Handmade Artists members live, which is a 50% discount. Considering the amount of full price ads we have sold and continue to sell, it must be a great deal.
Plus you are helping us keep IBH free!

Bumping this again. We have people paying $10 a month now regularly, we didn't offer the discount to IBH members on Handmade Artists.
So take advantage while you can!
