Banner Ad Information
There are several opportunities for your business to reach the Gameops.com audience. Banner ads are available on several locations on Gameops.com. We have built the site to feature the banner ads on the top of nearly every page to maximize exposure.
Our ads feature a unique link to the specialized game operations market, reaching from high schools to professional teams, across all sports and event marketing. We do not bill for click-thrus, but what we do offer is the very unique chance to market, promote and connect your product to our audience.
Over half of our current advertisers have been with Gameops.com for several years, so the ads are proving effective for many businesses and vendors. Ad space is limited to keep our site clean and to enhance the messages of our advertisers.
Available on a per month basis:
"Gameops.com has provided Raymond Entertainment the exposure we have been looking for in such a niche market.
Numbers don't lie and the click thru hits we have been getting on our website from Gameops.com have been awesome!
Jon is constantly delivering a better site and Raymond Entertainment will be surfing with Gameops.com the whole way."

Our ads do not offer guaranteed click-thrus or provide stats regarding page views or hits, since these are often difficult to track and a poor measure of traffic related to your success (see below for details).
We have a couple stats from the last couple years (from Awstats/Gameops.com) to show overall traffic patterns. Again, we track AD VIEWS for our advertisers, which is the most valuable number to consider your marketing success. For example: We had 19,958 ad views in December 2006. Ads are cycled through a random selection of 8 ads, so each one received about 2,495 impressions in that month.
|Stats||Unique Visitors ||Number of Visits ||Pages ||Approx Ad Views per ad |
- We do not post ads on our store
- Be cautious with web metrics. Numbers can be irrelevant or misleading. We tell you how many times your ad was seen (top of the page) by viewers....which is what matters.
- "Pages" can be misleading. This web "page" you are looking at is actually made up of several "pages" put together . Depending how your site is built, the number of pages can be very misleading.
- "Hits" is an even more misleading number. For example, in Dec. 2006 we had nearly 700,000 "hits". We don't list that number since it means nothing to our advertisers. People saw our advertisers banner about 2,500 times that month. I can tell you we had 700,000 "hits", but that doesn't mean anything if you want actual visitors who actually see your ad banner.
- Gameops.com is the number one web site for our industry, established in 1998 and growing ever since. No one else comes close in web traffic.
