Advertising for Advertisers:

Just thought I'd note that you can reach our readers -- at an estimated 310,000+ ad impressions per week -- for a mere $200/week, or $450/week for the upper right hand corner ad. (Those are the June 2009 prices, which may rise.) And such high-quality readers, too!

I wouldn't advertise on a blog that would have me as a reader.

Second! (High quality indeed)

OK, your ad banner has gone from snuff movie, to a woman many wish would star in a snuff movie. ;-)

All of our readers are above average in quality.

The google ad I just saw on your site was for an "internet porn attorney".

I guess if I ever need one of those I at least now know that they exist.

Pete, that reminds me, gotta go format the old harddrives again...

Admit it. Your heart just isn't into adverstizing. If it was, you'd stuff the add banners right below the "read more" link for the full article. Even more obnoxious things could be done.

I STILL don't see any ads on you site banner or otherwise! How come?

...your site, banner or otherwise.

How much will it cost for title sponsorship? "The Smirnoff Vodka Volokh Conspiracy" has a nice ring to it.

I check this sports message board from time to time. It took me at least a triple-take to realize that the banner ad didn't have anything to do with yak penis(es).

About how many readers does Volokh have, or is that confidential?

According to SiteMeter, 35K/daily, and hovering around 1M reads most months.

I'm going to pay for a banner that just reminds people that they owe me a beer. I think that it will pay off.

A mere $200 dollars a week? I don't have anything worth advertising for that amount of money. (How sad is that?)
6.11.2009 5:18pm
Prof S., I think you mean, remind people that they DON'T owe you a beer.

I wonder what percentage of readers are also commenters.

I liked that Russian bride ad that came up when Ilya did his "Voyage to America" post. I'd rather see more of those than another Ann Coulter photo.

can I buy an ad for this required reading?

Also, are you only selling ads to substantiate the deduction of your web expenses against a "hobby loss" denial?

If you have a comment about spelling, typos, or format errors, please e-mail the poster directly rather than posting a comment.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
