    Specifications

    Our banners and buttons conform to the CASIE standards (defined by the Interactive Advertising Bureau) for advertising. Banners are 468x60 pixels (animation is ok and less than 12Kbytes suggested), Buttons are 120x60 pixels (animation is ok and less than 8Kbytes is suggested). We do not provide Banner/Button design or creation at The Dreamtime, however if you are looking for someone to design your Banner for you we recommend that you visit: AdDesigner.com, or Grantastic Designs to locate designers and information on creating an effective Banner/Button.

    (120x60 Pixels, less than 8Kbytes in size, animation is ok)

    We offer two attractive options, our Banners appear by themselves at the top of nearly every page on The Dreamtime (except for the homepage). Our buttons appear in groups of 3 near the bottom of the content of every page. Our banner ads can provide you with a larger image that attract more clicks. Our button ads will provide you with a greater number of impressions for a good bargain. Both banners and buttons receive on-line statistics that are updated in real-time that you access with your username and password. All banners and buttons are served from The Dreamtime website to guarantee a faster loading time. They are rotated at random so that your banner will receive a wide exposure over many sections. This has shown to attract a larger audience for you and hopefully a better click through rate.
