    Question What Size Banners Do You Prefer?
    Listing "IAB/CASIE Recommended Banner Sizes". Please vote for the ones you prefer most. You may vote for a multiple number of banners, but only once (meaning: you have to tick all of the ones you're voting for first and then click "Vote").

    Thanks,

    Geno

    Come on affiliates. Vote! Express your preference for creatives.

    Geno, I would like to see some creatives in smaller file sizes. Say 10K or less.
    Anything above 15K takes too long to load for those that are still on 56K modems.

    Smaller squares, like 100x100, are also good.
    Even though they call the 250x250 a "popup," one of those can work really well as part of a page, with the text around it. (like on some news sites).

    Never thought of that with 250x250, I'll have to maneuver a page or two around and try it. That might just salvage those disastrous content pages I've got out there that I've been whining about.

    Geno,

    The smaller file sizes are preferred here, too.

    234x60 graphics, my favorite size, are a real prize as one can line 3 of them across the top of one's page at 800x600. TigerDirect has some great 234x60 graphics as did IBM when they were in affiliate marketing.

    Any button less than ~180 pixels is good if one is using a 25% column width at 800x600 though I prefer 149x151 and 124x126 to try to keep Norton from whacking my graphics.

    Flash graphics are out, no questions asked.

    Here in the Texas hill country we have antiquated phone systems and are very lucky to connect at 26.4 Kbps. The man who owns the local ISP downloads at 12 Kbps at his house in the western part of the county.

    My favorite is 88x31. I can organize lots of them into a price comparison or cascade them down my navigation by click popularity. They can be manipulated and organized quite easily and best of all, most every merchant has one. In my experience larger ads simply get ignored.

    Please understand that this is NOT a "Geno thing". I have decided to post this poll, as I believe that its results will be of value to all AMs (of course, myself included).

    Thank you for voting, everyone! Looking forward to more votes.

    Help AMs make your life more fun!

    Not to open a can of worms or anything, but shouldn't we all try making a move toward sizes that will not get filtered by ad blockers? A banner that is 5px narrower and 5px deeper (or vice-versa) than a standard size would not be difficult to work with in most cases.

    True. However, it is more than likely standard size banners (or one size or another) that you'll be working with. Otherwize, the picture and the text in the picture will get considerably distorted. Say, you use only square banners at your sites; and the only square thing I have is 250 x 250. However, you like to use your own 119 x 119 thing. Wouldn't you rather prefer working with a 125 x 125 banner in this case (as opposed to 250 x 250)?

    CC,
    ITA. However, just 1px variance will suffice. Example: 467x59 or 469x61 124x124 will meet the needs. One pixel each direction will not distort picture. Often I make these changes just for good measure. A 125x125 square looks just as good at 124x124.

    I have found that 120x60 worked the best. In regards to ad blockers if the banner is a static image simply create new image in photoshop or fireworks that is a tad bigger and with a transparent background. Then paste the banner in that image. The banner will remain the same but the overall image will be larger.
