Website Traffic Trend 10/2023 - 3/2023

RFCafe.com Web Statistics October 2022 - March 2023

Things are looking up for RFCafe.com website statistics. The trend lines for Page Views, Visits, and New Visits all have a positive slope. I have put a lot of effort into making pages compliant with Google's "Mobile Friendly" requirements, so that probably has something to do with it. Also, you may have noticed that I have been modifying and re-publishing some of the earlier RF Cafe webpages. That involves updating the narrative, verifying hyperlinks (many go dead over time), and cleaning up older graphics. Much has changed in expectations from visitors - especially from the early days in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Competition for visitors is fierce. As always, thank you for your visitorship and stewardship.

Two plans are available. Please contact me, Kirt Blattenberger, with any questions.

  • Banner Plan: Hyperlinked graphical Banner Ads in page borders + Highlighted Ad(s) on Vendor Pages + thumbnail logo in right border | $300/month
  • Standard Plan: Hyperlinked Highlighted Ad on Vendor Pages + text listing in right border  |  $40/month

All Banners will be randomly displayed in any of the six (6) page border positions (see screen capture), so every company's Banner will have an equal chance of appearing.

A random number generator determines which company's Banner Ad will go in a particular position, and no company's Banner Ad will be displayed in more than one position for a given page view*. I wrote the PHP code myself and it is very simple and foolproof.

You provide a pair of industry-standard Banner graphics are needed for page border impressions - one 160x600-pixel graphic for the vertical format and one 728x90-pixel graphic for the horizontal format, and also, a 330x400-pixel graphic for the Highlighted Ad impressions on Vendor pages.

  • Contract Length = 3 months
  • Price: A flat price of $300 per month is charged, with a standard 3-month term ($900/term).
    • Additional Banner Pairs* (up to a maximum of 3) may be purchased at discount rates to increase the odds that your company's Banner Ad will be displayed:
      • 1 Banner Pair  = $300/month
      • 2 Banner Pairs = $270/month (-10%) x 2 ($540)
      • 3 Banner Pairs = $255/month (-15%) x 3 ($765)
      • 4 Banner Pairs = $240/month (-20%) x 4 ($960)
    • * Each Banner Pair option adds another set of Banner Ads (160x600-px and 728x90-px) into the random display engine, thereby doubling your likelihood of being displayed. Unique Banner Ad designs and hyperlink URLs can be provided with each additional Banner Pair.
    • If your company is a parent to other related companies, the above additional Banner Pairs can be applied for each company, up to a total of three (3).
  • Banner Ad Specifications:

    728x90 - Width = 728 px, Height = 90 px

    160x600 - Width = 160 px, Height = 600 px

    File Format = JPG, GIF, or PNG (static, no animation)

    File Size = 45 kBytes (maximum)

    Hyperlink = Points to your company website

    A separate URL may be provided for each of the 2 Banners.
    Content = Text & graphics
  • Highlighted Vendor Page Ad Specifications:

    Width = 330 px, Height = 400 px

    File Format = JPG, GIF, or PNG (static, no animation)

    File Size = 45 kBytes (maximum)

    Hyperlink = Points to your company website

    Content = Text & graphics

    Vendor Page Placement = Up to 5 pages related to your products and/or services. Please review the Vendor Page list to determine where you would like to be (must pertain to your business). Additional pages are $5/page/month.

  • A unique Highlighted Ad graphic and hyperlink URL may be provided for each Vendor Page on which it is displayed.

Standard Highlighted Ad Pricing:

  • Price: $40/mo. for up to 3 Vendor pages on RF Cafe, and $3/mo. for each additional page.
  • These ads appear only on Vendor listing pages.
  • Ads contain textual content and a company logo.
  • Contract Length = 6 months
  • Highlighted Vendor Page Ad Specifications:

    Width = 330 px, Height = 200 px

    File Format = JPG, GIF, or PNG (static, no animation)

    File Size = 35 kBytes (maximum)

    Hyperlink = Points to your company website

    Content = Text & graphics

    Vendor Page Placement = Up to 3 pages related to your products and/or services. Please review the Vendor Page list to determine where you would like to be (must pertain to your business). Additional pages are $3/page/month.

  • See Important Notes below.

Important Notes:

  • Pixel dimensions and maximum file sizes listed are firm. If you have trouble meeting the file size, I will be glad to help - there has never been an ad I couldn't fit into 45 kBytes.
  • I do not collect page traffic or link click statistics for advertisements. Your website server statistical analysis is a much better reporter of inbound links from RF Cafe than I or anyone else can provide.
  • To the best of my knowledge the page layouts shown are representative of all pages on RF Cafe.
  • I make page layout changes from time to enhance performance.
  • The rel="sponsored" tag is inserted into all coded hyperlinks.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
