The Details


Advertisers may request a custom ad size and/or a custom location.

For each ad, advertisers specify the ad size and preferred location, URL link (when ad is clicked) and the start and end dates.

For each ad, advertisers provide placement-ready artwork for the size of the ad purchased.

Desktop Placements

Desktop placement ads are shown on the version of the site accessible by traditional computers.

The Premium Social Media Package or the Premium Mobile Placement is included in the Super Leaderboard, Leaderboard, Wide Skyscraper and Half Page ads.

Mobile Placements

Mobile placement ads are shown on the version of the site accessible by tablets and smartphones.

Advertiser is responsible for providing a Medium Rectangle ad (300×250) or a Full Banner (468×60-100) ad for mobile placement, regardless of the desktop ad size purchased.


Ad is placed at the end of a news article.


Ad is placed at the beginning of a news article just below the headline and byline.

Social Media Packages

The Social Media Package is restricted to events and promotions.

During the course of your ad run, we will post text and a picture(s) which compliment your ad, on our social media networks.

For each post, advertisers provide the posting date(s), image(s) and status text.

Different images may be used for each post. Images must contain less than 20% text (by area) to adhere to Facebook’s boosted post image policy.


– 1 post on each of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram.


– 3 posts on each of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagrm.

– Facebook posts are “boosted”, adding thousands of impressions to your ad.

Event Listings

When booked, listings are placed in our Events Calendar and remain there permanently. Listings may be placed independently of advertising.

Event listings include dates, times, location map and a short (250 words or less) description of the event. If an image is included, the Weekend rate will apply regardless of when the event occurs.

On the day of the event, the listing is shown on the front page of the website in a continuously scrolling list. Events occurring on Mondays to Thursdays are considered “Weekday Listings”; those occurring on Fridays to Sundays are considered “Weekend Listings”.

In addition to the daily scrolling list, weekend listings are highlighted in a post on the website and boosted on Facebook.

For each listing, advertisers specify the title, dates and times, location and description for the event.

For each listing, advertisers may provide one image.


What is the difference between an Impression and a Click?

Every time someone requests a web page from OakvilleNews.Org and the advertisement image is shown in their browser (on their computer, tablet or mobile device), our servers record one “impression.” Every time someone clicks on the advertisement image, our server records one “click.”

Our software is designed to ignore repeated requests and clicks in rapid succession from one browser. For example, if one person repeatedly reloaded or clicked on one ad in rapid succession, it would still only be counted as one impression or click; however, if that same person reloaded the ad or clicked on it hours or days later, it would be recorded as another impression or click.

Our software also does not count impressions or clicks from bots or crawlers (web search or otherwise). As well, impressions include impressions from social media posts, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram.
