A website banner or banner ad is an image intended to promote certain events, products & services or simply to attract the attention of your website visitors.
In which plans are website banners available?
Looksomething provides you with the opportunity to add your own static images by subscribing to our Enterprise plan. Moreover, if you purchase the Google AdSense Addon, you can monetise your website by displaying Google Ads in it.
Please note that websites in Starter plans include our own Google Ads whereas websites in Business plans do not display any ads at all.
Where can I place banners on my website?
There are many available positions within our website templates for banner ads; those positions can greatly differ between templates.
Please mind, that web banner positions in each template are fixed and cannot be altered nor increased in number.
However, you can choose not to display any banners at all.
How many banners can I add in each position?
You are free to place as many banners (static images or AdSense ads) as you want in each position; all of them will be automatically rotated in order to be served equally to your website visitors.
