Leaderboard Ads appear between Sections in The Report. Ad placement changes each time the screen is refreshed.
- We have limited inventory for Leaderboard ads which are sold on a first-come first-served basis. Purchases are limited to a maximum of 3 consecutive months at one time.
- To claim space in advance for certain dates, you must purchase them with a credit card or ACH/e-check. Please choose dates carefully, as we will not credit or refund or switch dates once purchased. On the first of each month, we open space two months out for purchase. For example, on November 1, you can purchase in January; on December 1, for February; etc.
- You are allowed to use a “placeholder ad” if you are purchasing in advance. But it is your responsibility to get us the correct creative and associated URL two business days before your ad goes live. There is no switching of one creative for another once the ad goes live.
- Select the start date and length of time for the ad to run. Days are publishing days, which are weekdays only, so do not include weekends or holidays in your purchase.
- If you want to run your ad from Friday through Monday, you will buy 2 days. Do not purchase Saturday or Sunday as we don't publish on the weekends.
- 10 days = two calendar weeks (10 weekdays)
- A month = four consecutive calendar weeks (20 consecutive weekdays)
