NOTE: I reserve the option to refuse ads which I do not feel are appropriate for the RF Cafe mission.

3rd-Party Advertising Options:

ClustrMaps for January 4 through April 22, 2018 - RF Cafe3rd-party advertising on RF Cafe is being provided by Google Ad Words, IHS (GlobalSpec), and Yahoo!|Bing Network. Please contact them via the provided hyperlinks for information; customer service agents are available for assistance if needed.

If this page is still available by the time you click the link, it has a good synopsis on click-through rates (CTR) and cost per click (CPC). For the general Technology category, CTR is 0.85% an CPC is $0.20 based on ad impressions on websites like RF Cafe that might host Google Ads. Keep in mind that Technology includes everything from cellphones and televisions to power dividers and coaxial cable. My guess is that cellphones and TVs make up a much larger portion of that 0.85% than do power dividers and coaxial cable.

Important Notes:

  • Discounts are not offered at this time.
  • 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.
  • 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, but regardless of the layout, your ad(s) will retain relative location order.
  • 78x26-px logos in upper right corner are provided at no additional cost, and are subject to size, location, and format change as deemed necessary for optimizing space usage. These appear on all pages with every page view.

* I usually run third-party advertisements or my own RF Cafe software ads along with private advertisers in the banner slots, at a display rate of about 1:10.
