Advertising Specifications

We've been around since before online advertising was an industry. Over the years we've seen how truly intrusive advertising can be. At AncientFaces we do NOT employ aggressive advertisement techniques. This includes pop-ups, auto-play advertisements, most video ads, and other annoying advertisements.

AncientFaces accepts a limited number of IAB approved ad unit types and sizes which can be found on the Interactive Advertising Bureau website. The most common ad units include:

  • mrec: 300 x 250
  • leaderboard: 728 x 90
  • mobile banner: 320 x 50

In addition, we offer affiliate link placements. For unique cases, our sponsorship team specializes in developing unique advertising solutions including:

  • roadblocks
  • wallpaper
  • interstitial ads (rarely)
  • custom sponsorships
