Advertisers must provide their own Internet ready ad or ad text. BibleStudy.org does not offer a professional ad creation service.

Button Ads must be 120 pixels wide by 60 pixels deep and be 6,000 bytes (8K) or smaller in file size.

Ad Rotation / Ad Location / Ad Size
Unlike many other sites, ads are NOT rotated with other ads in the same ad space. Text-based Ads are placed in their own ad box. The exact size of the ad box, size of ad text within the box, and the exact positioning of an advertiser's ad within a Web page(s) (unless otherwise agreed to) are determined soley by the site and at the site's discretion may change at any time. Examples of text-based ads can be found on the site's main page. Ad locations on any site page(s) are available on a first commitment to purchase ad space basis. The site reserves the right to limit or increase the type and number of ads on any of its Web pages at any time.
Ad fees stated in Emailed quotes are guaranteed for only seven (7) calendar days from Email's sent date. Ad locations stated in Emailed ad quotes, unless otherwise stated, are not guaranteed.
All ads must be reviewed and approved before going live on the site. The Site reserves the right to, at any time, reject or cancel any ad space purchased, including those that may subject the Site to criminal, civil or other liabilities. All decisions made by the site regarding or related to site advertising are final.
The site is willing to work with potential advertisers on ad formats, sizes and options different from what is publically offered. Please Email us your proposal and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
BibleStudy.org will competitively match the advertising fees found on any similarly popular Christian or Bible-based Web site for the same quality ad locations and ad formats. Additionally, the site may, from time to time, GUARANTEE an advertiser receives (for those purchasing ad space based on a fixed monthly fee) a minimum number of views per thirty-day period. If, for whatever reason, the ad is not viewed the average number of times promised by the site, it will stay on the site FREE until it reaches the average.
Ad Pricing / Ad Performance
Ad fees are either based on a flat monthly rate or on a pay-per-click basis. Pay-per-click advertisers will be given access, during the duration of their ad term, to the site's ad tracking software to guage the number of clicks they receive per day. All ad fees are based on advertiser providing an Internet ready ad. Ad performance reported to advertisers who purchase space based on a fixed monthly rate are based on the total number of times the Web page(s) an advertiser's ad(s) are located on are served to site visitors. This ad metric is called ad impressions.
Definition of Ad Month
Ad space is offered per thirty (30) calendar days (ad month). Advertisers can request their ad(s) be placed immediately on the site or on any calendar day within ten (10) days of finalized ad agreement.
Ad Pricing Discounts
The site periodically checks ad fees charged by other large and popular Bible-based Web sites. The site prices its ad spaces at a DISCOUNT given the distinct ad spaces it offers (e.g. text-based ads in their own ad box) and what is charged for similar ad offerings (ad size, location on page, etc.) on Bible-based sites with similar audience and popularity.
Purchase of Multiple Ad Terms
Advance purchase of ad space is limited to no more than six consecutive ad months (180 days) of ad space.
The site reserves the right to REMOVE all ad(s) by an advertiser, without notice, if ad payment is not RECEIVED by the site within Five (5) Calendar Days of the beginning of an ad term. The site also reserves the right to remove all ads by an advertiser if ad fee paid by check or charge is delayed or otherwise cannot be credited to our account in a timely manner. Ad space(s) of ad(s) removed from the site will, at site's discretion, become immediately available for purchase by the public. Ad location(s) on the site are NOT guaranteed to or reserved for advertisers whose ads are removed due to payment or other issues.
Notice of End of Ad Term
Advance notice of the end of a particular ad term is Emailed to advertisers. The site reserves the right to remove all live ads by an advertiser if they do not notify the site via Email, before their ad term ends, of their intention to purchase additional ad term(s). The site does not guarantee the availability of an advertiser's previously purchased ad location(s) if they decide, after an ad term has ended, to purchase ad space.
Payment for ad space, in U.S. dollars, must be received by the site within (5) Calendar Days of the beginning of an ad term. The site reserves the right to pro-rate an advertiser's ad term if only partial payment of an ad term is received. All ad fees are non-refundable.
