Ad rates

What follows are The Odessa File ad rates. Keep in mind that these rates buy advertising available to readers every hour of every day -- 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and that the number of visits to this website numbers up to about 20,000 per week. Recent weeks have seen an average of about 18,000, with more than 40,000 page views.

Page Sponsorship

Sponsorship of an interior page gives the sponsor advertising space above the stories on that page. Width is the full width of the story area. Depth is up to three or four inches. Cost is $150 per month on the Sports Page, and $125 a month on other interior pages.

The Home Page's key ad -- considered a sponsorship although different in configuration to those on interior pages -- is held by Schuyler Hospital.

Front Page Center Ad

Beyond the sponsorship on the Home Page, ad space is available in that page’s center section – sprinkled down throughout the promos that lead readers to stories inside. A spot is currently held by The Arc of Schuyler County a few spaces below the top ad space. Any ads below that one would vary in cost by position -- from $350 a month down to $100 a month.

Front Page, Side Ad:

$175 per month for the top spot on either side. $125 for each of the next two spots on either side. It's $100 per month if below those three and linking to another website. Those top three spots are generally taken.

$100 per month when below the top three and linking to an Ad Page created within The Odessa File (plus a $50 one-time charge for creation of that Ad Page.)

$80 per month if below the top three and there is no link. This will likely be farther down the page.

Inside Page, Side Ad:

$35 per month when linked to another website.

$180 for six months when linked to another website; $325 for a full year.

$30 per month for a stand-alone ad.

$150 for six months for a stand-alone ad; $250 for a full year.

Add $2.50 per month for ad linking to an Ad Page created within The Odessa File.

Business Card:

$5 per week, for a minimum 5 weeks. These are located on a Business Card Page, reached through links from other pages.

With a link from the card to another site: $8 per week ($5 for the card, and $3 for the link).

Six-month purchase, no link, $100; full year is $200.

Six-month purchase with link to another site, $150; full year is $300.

Classified Ads:

$2 for up to 50 words, to run two weeks.

Inside Page, full-width ad within text area:

This is a sort of sub-sponsorship, with placement high on the page, separated from the sponsorship ad by one or two stories. The ad runs across the full width of the text area. Cost is $100/month on the Sports Page, and $75/month on other interior pages. An example is the H.L. Stephens ad that runs on the Sports Page.
