FAQ about Inserting your HTML tag!

Where can I get the HTML to display banners ?

You need to log into your member area. Once you have logged in, click on 'Insert HTML'. Once you have done that, all you need to do is copy the html tag and paste it into your html files (web pages)

Can I display banners on more than one page ?

Yes. You can display a single Free Banners Network Member banner on as many pages as you like. After joining, you can get the unique html tags to insert in different pages within your website.

Can I display multiple banner ads on one page ?

Yes and No. Yes, you can display multiple banner ads on one page if the other ads are from other agencies or networks. However, you cannot display two or more Free Banners Network banners on a single page.

Does it matter where I place the banner ad on my site ?

You can place the Free Banners Network banner anywhere on your web page as long as it can be viewed somehow (hiding it in a non-resizable frame is not allowed). However, please remember, ads placed at the bottom may not generate many hits (impressions) because a user can halt the display or click to another page before the ad has completed its request. If the request is not completed, you don't get credit for it.
