Run of Site

Run of site means banners may appear on all pages of the website. Run of site is useful when you want to reach a global audience.

Country / regional placements

We recommend placing ads on weather pages that cover certain countries or regions if you want to address users by countries or regions. E.g. if your desired audience monitors wind, waves and weather in the Canary Isles then place your banners on all weather pages for the Canary Isles.

Local placements

If you have a surf school or hotel near a local surf spot or marina then place your banners on the weather pages (wind report, forecast, weather stats) for this location.


Geo Targeting

Ads may be displayed according to the current geographic location of the user. This means your ad is only shown when the user is located in a certain country, region or city. E.g. if you have a travel agency and want to address audiences in Germany, Switzerland and Austria then use Geo Targeting.

Weather Targeting

As a unique option you can also place ads depending on the observed or predicted:

  • wind speed (e.g. the best sail for the current wind)
  • temperature (e.g. the best wetsuit for the predicted temperature)
  • cloudiness (a banner for sun lotion when the sun is shining).
