Become a SkateWeb Sponsor!
About SkateWeb sponsorship
SkateWeb is now accepting paid advertising in the form of site-wide
sponsorship buttons. When you buy a SkateWeb sponsorship, your ad
will appear on all of SkateWeb's "directory" pages.
SkateWeb has been online since August, 1994. It was the very first
web site devoted to figure skating, and remains one of the most
popular and best-known skating sites on the net. SkateWeb has been
Time Magazine's 1998 Olympic preview,
New York Times, the
Toronto Star, and the
Wall Street Journal;
and has always been listed as
Yahoo!'s top-rated figure skating site.
In the 1999-2000 season, traffic to SkateWeb's "front page" has been in the
range of 2,000-4,000 page hits per day (more while major skating
events are taking place, less in the off-season). Site-wide, SkateWeb
gets 5,000-10,000 page hits per day.
SkateWeb does not solicit or accept payment for adding "ordinary"
links, or for featuring them more prominently. All paid advertising
on SkateWeb is in the form of sponsor buttons that are clearly
distinguishable from the editorial content.
