Advertising on TheBookGuide

Why advertise here?
According to Alexa we are the most popular book collecting site in the UK. You can see a sumary of the numbers here.

Our Google Analytics stats record that for the 30 day period 31.12.16 - 29.01.17 visitors looked at 31,737 pages generated by our website.

More than a third of these visitors now view the site on a mobile device and use it to plan trips which often involve visiting fairs, bookshops and auctions in their quest for old books.

Our pages enjoy high Google ranking and we consistently appear in the top search results for many common book related search terms.

What does it cost?
For just £10.00 your advert would be displayed for a week and will be seen by many of the thousands of dealers, collectors, and readers, who use our site every week.

As an introductory offer, four or more weekly insertions of your advert will save you 20% and give you the option of a free image background or the inclusion of your logo. Special rates apply to advertising on TheBookGuide home page - please ask for details.

What do you get?
We will design a 120 pixel wide advert button for you, similar to the examples in the right and left sidebars, incorporating up to 10 words of your choice. However, we are happy to discuss your specific needs and wherever possible, include your own designs, artwork, and company logos.

Your advert button will appear on all the pages of the diary, directory, guide, or calendar of your choice and can be linked to the following:

Bookshop Guide - An announcement added to your existing listing (60 word maximum). Or a direct link to your own website.

Book Fair Calendar - up to 60 words describing your event, added to your listing as soon as you buy at least one week's £10 advert button.** The advert button can be linked to your enhanced listing or to your own website.

Book Auction Diary - up to 60 words describing your auction, added to your listing as soon as you buy at least one week's £10 advert button.** The advert button can be linked to your enhanced listing or to your own website.

Bookbinders Directory - An announcement added to your existing listing (60 word maximum). Or a direct link to your own website.

Products & Services - linked directly to your own website.

Site traffic continues to grow - and although Alexa only tracks visitors who have installed their tool bar - our ranking using their metrics gives some indication of TheBookGuide's relative popularity.

ALEXA GLOBAL RANK (30.01.17) - TBG 234,218, PBFA 873,385, ABA 1,152,463, The Ephemera Society 5,089,542, Sheppards 11,049,356 - lowest number is the most popular.

** It's worth noting that early booking will ensure that your enhanced listing could be promoting your event for many months before your button ad appears.
