In this earlier topic, “reasons/advantages of advertising“, it describe various reasons you need to do advertisement. In this post, I will be talking about the various popular ads dimensions and sizes used for digital advertisement.
Ads can be served or displayed in two major ways namely:
– Text Ads
– Image Ads.
It is only the Image ads that uses dimensions or sizes, as text ads is displayed in plain text.
Ads dimension is measured in Width and height (W x H). Like the below picture clearly illustrate, the width comes first and then the height e.g 300 x 250 means 300pixel width and 250pixel in height.
Various types of popular ads dimensions and sizes
1. 720 x 90 (leaderboard)
2. 160×600 (wide skyscraper)
3. 320×50 (Mobile Banner)
4. 336×280 (large rectangle)
5. 300×250 (medium rectangle)
This is an example of 300×250 I used to promote “Write and Record” app.
