A news blog for Seattle's Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhoods


Advertise on PhinneyWood

PhinneyWood.com is the only dedicated neighborhood news source for Phinney Ridge and Greenwood. Since launching in July of 2008, PhinneyWood has grown to 20,000 unique users and more than 100,000 page views a month — and still growing.

In a unique opportunity to reach a large number of Phinney Ridge and Greenwood residents in a single place, we offer advertising starting at just $150 a month.

Check out our Advertising FAQs below, then email our advertising manager, Jennifer Sandmeyer, at nextdoormediajenni@gmail.com.

What makes up an ad on PhinneyWood.com?

We have three different ad sizes:

1)  180 x 180 pixels image, which links to the website of your choice. The image can be a logo, message or even a photo of your business. You can see the ads right now in the right-hand column of this page. They rotate randomly but evenly through the six spots on the home page and the story pages (so if we have 12 ads, your ad will be seen on 50% of the page views).

Cost: $150 per month. (We also offer a FIXED position for $350, so your ad will be on every page view.)

2) 970 x 35 pixels banner. This premium ad position is at the top of the page, right below the PhinneyWood name and picture. We sell a maximum of three banner ads per month that would rotate through that position, so your ad will be seen by at least 33% of the page views.

Cost: $500 per month.

3) 300 x 250 pixels rectangle in a FIXED position below the third story on the home page.

Cost: $300 per month.

With any size ad, we offer a 5% discount for three months and a 10% discount for six months. Phinney Neighborhood Association Business Group Members receive 10% off (in addition to three- and six-month discounts, if applicable; does not apply to graphic design services).

What if I don’t have an ad created?

We work with an affordable graphic designer who can create an ad for you.

How many page views do you get?

We’re averaging more than 100,000 page views with 20,000 unique users a month. And we’re still growing.

When will the ad run?

As soon as you or the graphic designer provide our ad manager with the ad.

Can I change the ad image and/or text during the campaign?

Yes, any time you need to. Just email the new information to Jennifer Sandmeyer at nextdoormediajenni@gmail.com.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes! You can either pay in full by check or credit card. Payment must be received before the ad goes online.

Can I buy ads on your affiliated blogs in Ballard, Magnolia, Fremont, Queen Anne, Wallingford, Maple Leaf, University District and Wedgwood-View Ridge, too?

Yes! For more information, please email Jennifer Sandmeyer at nextdoormediajenni@gmail.com.

Are there some kinds of advertising you won’t accept?

We will not accept any offensive, spam-like or questionable ads. We reserve the right to refuse any ad submitted to PhinneyWood.
