Several kinds of ads are available on WHY I LIKE BASEBALL. Text Link Ads, Banner Ads, Smaller Graphical Ads, and ads purchased through PROJECT WONDERFUL.
EDIT: Our Google page rank has been up and down like a yo-yo, but right now is at a 4, which is strong for the baseball off-season! (December 2010). I’m continuing to offer slashed prices on some text ads, but regular rates have been restored from the earlier sale on graphical ads.
Text Link Ads
Text link ads on WHY I LIKE BASEBALL are charged at the rate of $5
$10/word per month, for a minimum of three words for three months ( $90 $45). These ads appear on all pages of the site, including the main index page, individual articles, and the archives.
A rate of
$7 $3.50/word (discounted rate) is offered for ads that run only on the main page.
A 5% discount applies to any order that is prepaid for 12 months in advance.
A “word” is defined as just that, a word, so “Great Red Sox Tickets” is four words. A URL like www.red-sox-tickets.com would be one word, but if you go overboard and want www.omg-the-best-baseball-tickets-anywhere-at-the-best-prices.com, then we need to talk.

There is room at the top of the page above the graphical page header for a standard banner ad (120 x 600 pixels) or below the graphical page header in column two. The top of page ad costs $50 per month for a minimum of 2 months, and the column two ad (main center column above posts) costs $50 per month, minimum of one full month.
Smaller Graphical Ads
Small banners or buttons and graphics that can fit in the side columns (max width 125 pixels) are charged by height, beginning at $10 for the first 60 pixels and $5 for each 60 pixels thereafter up to a height of 600 maximum (“skyscraper”).
We also have graphical ad boxes on the site being served by the Project Wonderful ad collective. You can get an ad up and running for as little as one cent per day! That would come to a mere $1 for three months.
Ads do not have to be baseball-related, but we are a family-friendly site. So nothing obscene, overtly erotic, showing nudity or pulchritude, or graphically sexual, please. We’ve got much better sites for that kind traffic. Animated GIFs or otherwise flashing, blinking, or sound-producing ads must be approved. Unlike Facebook, we also will not take ads for sites that appear to be some for of scam, like the many versions of the Google Cash Scam.
