Along with the refresh of ThinkVitamin you’ll notice that we now have four lovely new advertising slots available on the right-hand side of every page. 

Previously, ThinkVitamin was part of The Deck. While The Deck was great we wanted to have more control over which ads we published on the site. Also, we wanted to give you more than one slot to advertise in. Hence, our decision to create our new ad slots.

Each ad is 125 x 125 and the ads rotate around the four slots. As a launch special we are offering the first month at a discounted rate of $395 per month, per ad (usually $495). And we only have two slots left for February!

Just email editor@teamtreehouse.com/blog to secure your place on ThinkVitamin.

Go to our Advertise page to find out more about our page views and target audience.

On another note, we’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this. Do you think it’s a good idea? Do you think the price point is right? As readers, how many ads are you prepared to tolerate in exchange for free content? If you’re a potential advertiser, is a 125 x 125 ad enough? What else would you be looking for?

We’d love to hear your ideas.

  1. As a reader, I certainly do not mind seeing 4 square ads, they are not intrusive and hopefully they advertise quality software/services.

  2. Hello, Seems like a good price for 160k users a month. Are these stats still up to date? it seems according to google your traffic has rock-bottomed – http://trends.google.com/websites?q=thinkvitami

  4. Whoa! That's not right. According to our Google analytics visits are up by 25.52% since we did the refresh. I need to look into why that graph is looking like that. I'll get back to you.

  6. “Your ad will be viewed approximately 167,000 times per month” – does that number represent unique users, visits or page impressions?btw”'It's important to keep in mind that all results from Trends for Websites are estimated. Moreover, the data is updated periodically, so recent changes in traffic data may not be reflected. Finally, keep in mind that Trends for Websites is a Google Labs product, so it's still in its early stages of development and may therefore contain some inaccuracies. In the future, we may consider ways to improve the accuracy of Trends for Websites by allowing owners to contribute additional data from their sites.”

    The placement of the four ads are just right, in my opinion. While they are not “in your face”, they are still very visible, which is an obvious plus for the advertisers. As for the price, all you can do is wait and see over the next few months to see how many advertisers there are. And, eventually how many will return to repeat.

  9. Actually, our numbers have gone up (thankfully!) and we're getting around 187,000 page views per month.

  11. I think it is a fair price point and when I get my product for this niche in shape I would certainly consider buying one of them.125×125 ads are effective and non intrusive IMO.

  13. The price is pretty fair for the amount of pageviews and visitors. And the ads are not intrusive at all. As the marketing manager at my company I would consider it if it fell within our niche.

  14. I think that works out at about $2.65 CPM (cost per thousand) which is pretty good value, I think (as long as you have that much traffic). $495 divided by 187,000 = $2.65 per thousand – hope my maths is right!

  15. I think this is a good idea and a fair price point for this type of advertising.

  16. The ads can be another Adwords alternative. But you have to test out to see the conversion. In my opinion, if you know google adwords well the profit could be promising.

  17. I think this seems like an excellent website to advertise with.. I will be in touch!

  18. I think this is very useful for the current state of economy..

  19. I agree that the price seems fair for the amount of pageviews and visitors. The ads are in a good spot and not all over the site which turns visitors off.

  20. online advertising is the Thing nowadays. forget the old methods of media advertisements, we use Internet now.

  24. I have just visited a blog that talks about cystitis symptoms. I have not known this disease until now. Cystitis disease involves inflammation or irritation of the bladder wall. Some symptoms of this condition are, urinary discomfort, urinary urgency and frequent in urinary. Be alarmed of this disease, be guided and keep yourself healthy at all times.

  25. Wood burning stoves are great furniture for your house because they come in number of sizes, colors and styles that will go along with the beauty of your home. There are people who prefer to have a wood burning stove because it cost them cheaper than that of electric generated. In addition, it gives a warm welcome to your visitors especially to a cold winter night.<a href=” http://www.woodburningstovehq.com/category/pell… pellett stove

    I really don't mind advertisements, they're all part of the business. It's when they get in the way with what you're reading; let's say a printer reviews would be hard to discern if all they have on the page are tons of ads aboutall printers. The tendency is to get distracted with whatever it is you're trying to read about.
