|Ad Duration||Banner and text advertising
are available in time increments tailored to meet
your needs. The run duration can be as short as
two weeks. Ad contracts are available with
discounts for extended runs.
Your metrological organization is not required to maintain its own web site in order to advertise at MetrologyMetro.
|Ad Banner Placement||No ads will ever be placed
at the very top or very bottom of any MM page.
This space is reserved for MM's use.
Advertisers can choose on which page, and can suggest which location/section/category on that page that they would like their ad to appear, provided the location is available. Therefore, it is important to first check and see if your desired location is available. A slot becomes available due to an ad cancellation or contract expiration (that is not renewed).
Only one (1) ad per advertiser per page is permitted.
MM will deliver, along with banner ads, an optional 12-word tag line composed by the advertiser. Tag lines appear below the ad banner.
Ad Banners are to be e-mailed to MM as a graphic file attachment (e.g. filename.jpg or filename.gif) no later than two days prior to the scheduled start of the ad. Your entire banner (no "hotspots") may be hyperlinked to an address of your choice (which must be approved by MM for suitable content) if you so desire. In the text of the e-mail message (not the attachment), please specify the connecting URL/http address to link to your advertising banner. In this e-mail, you should also include your optional tag line to be placed under your banner. Please specify which words in your tag line that you want linked to this URL/http address. Send to: email@example.com.
Ads may be changed on a
weekly basis as long as MM receives it two days
in advance of placement. Your current contractual
agreement will remain in effect for the new ad.
|Rates||Minimum ad run-time
is fourteen (14) days. Maximum ad run-time is six
(6) months, after which a new agreement can be
made. Prices quoted for ad placement are valid
for the entire contracted period.
You are guaranteed that your ad will run 24/7 on
a particular page, for the length of the
MM does not deal in impressions, but in raw visitors to our site. This is the real statistic when considering a sales conversion (visitor-to-sale). CPM and CPC rates are ineffective for the type of exposure we are providing, and therefore are offering flat rate fees.
MM offers a variety of pages on which to advertise. The rates are structured so that all metrology organizations can afford to advertise somewhere at MetrologyMetro. Sample rates follow and are subject to change without notice.
These rates apply to banner and text ads.

Note: All ads must be pre-paid before placement. Payment, along with a signed contract, is required three (3) days prior to the first day that the ad is scheduled to run. If all of the appropriate materials are not received by MM before the scheduled deadline, then the ad will run on the third day after the payment and signed agreement are received.

Payments should be made
and mailed to (including
the signed contractual agreement):
102 S Clay St
Zelienople, PA 16063-1127
If a check is not honored by the bank for any reason, the advertiser will have 48 hours to provide MM with the payment, made by certified check or international money order, at their expense, before all future scheduled advertisements commence. No further advertisements will be run until the account is current. There will also be a $30.00 US$ service charge.
The cancellation deadline is 6pm Eastern Standard Time (EST), two business days before the date the ad is scheduled to run.
For example, if the ad is supposed to start on Wednesday, June 5th, then the notice must be received by e-mail no later than 6:00 PM on Monday, June 3rd. If an ad is supposed to start on Monday, June 10th, then the cancellation notice must be received by 6:00 PM EST on Thursday, June 6th, to account for the non-business weekend days.
Any advertiser that submits a cancellation notice, which is received by MM after the cancellation deadline, is bound by the current agreement. The ad banner will be posted for the length of the agreement, and the advertiser will receive no refund.
Prices are valid for the entire period of time for which you have contracted. Current prices are subject to change without notice.
MetrologyMetro reserves the right to make changes to the advertising program and to this site, at any time, without notice.
MetrologyMetro has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you may cancel your advertisement at any time, subject to the cancellation deadline and terms discussed above.
