By The Numbers

Mark McGwire's Bat

In the past twelve months, we have delivered over 7 million ad units on 2 million page views to 900,000 visitors who spend an average of 3 minutes on our site. This represents a 40% year over year increase. These visitors are fathers looking for information on bats before they buy. 83% of our readers are male and 45% are between the ages of 35 and 44. They also have money and are spending it. Our conversion rates on major affiliate sites range between 3% and 8% depending on the month and product.3

The Problem

Ty Cobb's Bat

Despite all that success, advertising hits a few stumbling blocks. Most notably, the rapid uptake of ad blockers. The best data suggests 25% of internet users implement an ad blocking app. To add to that problem, third party ad services delay the delivery of ads to speed up web pages. As such, many readers get to the content before the ads have loaded. Some argue less than 50% of displayed ads are never even seen. (See source links below).

Our math is simple enough. If 25% of our readers are using ad blockers and 50% of the remaining 75% never see the ad, then over 500,000 people on justbatreviews.com NEVER see a single branded ad on the site. Vendors and manufacturers are paying for many of those unseen and unnoticed ads .

The Solution


The problem is easily solved—convince JustBatReviews.com to host banner ad images directly on the site in prime locations. When the site hosts the ads, ad blocker apps cannot block the ads as they are part of our page, ads will be displayed at the same time as content and prominent placement will make sure the ad is seen. Ad blocking, delay in loading and bad ad placement can all be solved with this easy fix.

Done. We are convinced, are you?
