Banners are shown at the tops of most pages at QTH.com and will look like this:
Your ad banner, like the one above, will randomly appear on various QTH.com web pages, along with other banner advertisers. Currently, each banner is shown over 20,000 times per month, for each "rotation" you purchase. You may purchase multiple rotations, at a discount, for even greater exposure. The number of ads you will receive will vary somewhat per month, based on the number of other current advertisers, but at least 20,000 banners be shown for each rotation you purchase.
So... what is a 'Rotation'? -- Let's say that there are 100 advertisers, and each of them has bought one Rotation. This advertiser would then have their banner appear once for every 100 times a banner is shown. Now, if an advertiser bought TWO rotations, their banner would show up TWICE AS OFTEN... so their banner would appear twice for every 100 times a banner is shown (or one out of 50). If that advertiser bought THREE rotations, their banner would show up 3 out of 100 times a banner is shown.... etc. Each rotation purchased effectively increases the amount of times that your banner will be shown. An 8x Rotation purchase means that your banner will be shown 8 times more often than someone that purchase a single 1x Rotation. Currently, for every rotation you buy, your banner will be displayed at least 20,000 times. If you have further questions, feel free to contact us.
