Best Free Banner Exchanges
You will find on this post what I think is a selection of the best free banner exchanges to join. You are able to earn literally thousands of banner credits just by taking some code from these sites and displaying it on your website or blog. You are credited by the banner exchanges each time you get a unique visitor to your site, as your information is embedded into the code. It is a pretty neat way to rack up quite a lot of extra advertising without you having to do too much effort after a little time spent initially.
The great thing to remember about banner ads are they continue to work for you non-stop, 24/7. They are pretty much a set and forget type of advertising continually beiung shown as long as they have a steady supply of credits assigned to them. In this day and age, time is precious and this just makes sense to get these working for you as a way of working smarter.
Check out these banners for how to get free banner advertising by reading the simple instructions.
Note: Some of the Best Free Banner Exchanges are also free manual traffic exchanges also.
Finding the information you need on the banner exchanges
After joining some of the sites, you will need to find and save some extra information from them. You will need to find a place on their site where they give you a little snippet of code to display on your website or blog. On different sites they may put it in different places, but it isn't usually too hard to find. You can get an idea of what to look for in these examples below.
From the main menu in Hitlink, first click on 'Manage Ads' and from the drop downmenu choose 'Ad Exchange' which will show you the above page. Then you will copy the code from the box (number 2)
