    Leaderboard Placement

    I work as the webmaster for a local newspaper. We're in the process of incorporating leaderboard image ads into our new layout. My boss and the heads of advertising feel that the leaderboard ad needs to be placed above the logo of the site but still incorporated into the layout. Here is the site they gave me as an example:

    http://www.ottawasun.com/

    I personally feel that the leaderboard should be located below the logo. Such as:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/15/wa...rtner=homepage

    What does everyone think?

    To me, placing the ad above the logo makes it easy to skip over. Plus it gives me the impression that the company didn't plan for that ad when designing the site and decided to just paste it above everything for quick insertion.

    Any thoughts?

    the NY's way is much better than the other example you posted. I think you should do something like NY's because it gets the attention of the reader two so it is way far better than placing it next to or on top of the logo .
