Advertise with the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL)
Thank you for your interest in advertising with the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL). Our audience includes students, pastors, church leaders, and lay people across most denominations of Christianity.
Web Site Advertising
With millions of monthly page views and over 600,000 unique visitors every month, www.ccel.org provides access to a large, faith-based audience. Our monthly fees guarantee that each banner ad will have at least 100,000 page views (frequently ads get closer to 120,000 or more page views).
- The top position on the right side of a page on our site is $750 for 3 months or $2,500 for one full year.
- The second position down is $500 for 3 months or $1,750 for one full year.
- The third position down is $400 for 3 months or $1,400 for one full year.
For Web site advertising, you will be allowed up to four (160 pixels wide by 160 pixels high) banners. If you use multiple banners, they would rotate in the position (we suggest a very different look when using multiple banners). You may start with one banner and add additional banners later. We sell ads on a CPM basis only.
The advertising rate for our monthly newsletter, The CCEL Times (which currently has over 85,000 subscribers), is $300 for 3 months or $1,100 for one full year. The newsletter uses the same size banner and goes out the first of the month.
Here are the links to all previous issues of our newsletter.
Account and Payments
In order to advertise with us, an account must be set up for you. To do that, we need your full name, your postal address, Web site URL, and telephone number.
All advertisements must be 'family friendly' (suitable for all ages) and inoffensive to our CCEL users.
We require prepayment. An invoice can be emailed to you once we have the necessary information. We accept payment by check or through Paypal.
The above describes our most popular type of advertising; however, it is targeted at smaller campaigns. If you are interested in a larger campaign (a million page views or more per month) with larger banners (160x160, 728x90, 468x60, 300x250, 350x325, or 320x50-mobile), please contact Nyna Sykes.
PageRank is a link analysis algorithm used by the Google Internet search engine that assigns a numerical weighting to Web sites with the purpose of "measuring" its relative importance. Google ranks www.ccel.org as a PR7 on their PageRank scale with PR10 being the highest.
