    I'm starting a free web hosting and I' trying to find a feasible way to make advetising revenue. I was thinking of doing what GA-Sports has done to http://www.frontofficefotball.com with the bar accross the top. However, instead of links to sites, I'd put a text advertisiment. Could this work. I'd be an SSI code, so i could update it frequently and members wouldn't have to display a banner. What do you think?

    well it's an idea and i say give everything and anything a trial run and measure the effectiveness of the method you use.

    A small graphic with a text link can be very effective.

    If you were joining a free host, would this be suitable replacement for a banner?

    (ignore the popup, it's something different)

    Definately In the eyes of the people hunting for free hosting, the less forced advertising at the top of their pages, the better.
