What are banner adverts and how do they work?

A web banner or banner ad is a form of advertising on the web that is delivered by an ad server. Basically an advertisement is embedded into a web page, whether it's the homepage or any other page, and it links back to an advertiser's website. This method of promotion can help businesses to attract more potential customers to their websites and make more sales.

Banner adverts are also known as display or image-based ads and they are widely-used on the web. They're popular not just because they're a cost-effective way for advertisers to promote their products and services online but it also helps increase brand awareness and attract the right kind of traffic.


How can you make money from online advertising?

When you display banner adverts on your website, you also add a custom snippet of code that identifies you as an ad publisher. So, every time a visitor clicks on an ad on your site, that click is recorded as coming from your site and, as a result, it generates revenue for you. If that visitors ends up buying a product from the advertiser, you also have the possibility to earn a commission, but that depends on the merchant program that you've signed up for.
