Our website has run over 600 news stories and published more than 100 pages of community information since it was launched in early 2012.
The website is fully responsive, meaning that its layout adapts automatically to suit the type device on which it is being viewed (e.g. desktop, laptop, iPad or other tablet, smartphone).
In May 2020, Google Analytics shows our readership having a device mix of 60 percent smartphone, 30 percent desktop or laptop and 10 percent tablet.
Advertising on our website
Banner advertising slots are available as follows:
- On the front page (wide banner at top of the page, deeper banner further down the page)
- In the sidebar* (top, middle and bottom positions)
- Within the text flow of recent news stories
- On specific business directory and other information pages
* Note that the sidebar appears as shown in the image above on desktop, laptop and iPad (in landscape orientation). On smaller devices, the sidebar drops down below the main content, meaning that it is less prominent (although the adverts it contains do appear larger in this mode).
Prices for website banner advertising range from £10 to £30 per month.
We can run a sponsored post (a.k.a. advertorial) on our website for a charge of £50. Posts are accepted at our discretion. In accordance with ASA rules, such posts will be prominently marked as SPONSORED or ADVERTORIAL.
