Advertising Production Specifications
Our official production specifications for banner advertising on GeoCities are:
  • GIF or JPG file format
  • 468x60 pixels
  • <=7.5 K file size
  • we can alternate among multiple banners
  • we can update with new banners weekly
...however, we will try to accomodate any special requests. For example, if you have already prepared another banner size that is relatively close to 468x60, let us know -- we can probably handle it. We do encourage the use of animated GIF banners, as our experience indicates that animated banners are more effective at attracting click-throughs to your site than static images.
Once you have finalized an advertising sales contract (contact our sales office for more information), you can send us your banner(s) in one of two ways. If they are located in a directory on your web site, email Karl Sowa at ksowa@geocities.com with the URL, and we will retreive the banners from your site. You can also just email the banners as an attachment. [Note: If you are a homesteader interested in submitting a banner as part of our GeoRewards program, you will be emailed instructions on how to submit your banner when you apply for GeoRewards. Please do not send your GeoRewards banner to the above email address. Thanks!]
Be sure to include the following information in your email:
  • banner name(s)
  • the exact URL you would like the banner to be linked to
  • any requests for specific placement locations within GeoCities
  • text you would like to appear below the banner
Thanks for your interest in GeoCities!
