FAQ
  • Q: How does a banner exchange work?

    A: After signing up to the banner exchange and uploading your banner graphics, you place our banner codes on your website. Depending on the number of impressions (banner displays) and clicks, your banner ad will be shown on other members' websites: the higher the number of impressions and clicks, the more often your banner will be displayed.

  • Q: What's the exact ratio?

    A: The ratio depends on your CTR (click-through rate).

    At the JBE we offer a sliding ration scale of up to 1:1 ratio.

    CTRRatio
    < 0.1080%
    0.10 - 0.2085%
    0.20 - 0.3090%
    0.30 - 0.4095%
    > 0.4099%

    For example: users with a CTR of less than 0.10% get 80 impressions of their ads for 100 impressions sent; users with a CTR above 0.40% get 100 impressions for 100 impressions sent.
