Hizook is one of the top robotics news websites on the internet. Our audience is almost exclusively academic and professional roboticists. We currently exceed 25,000 pageviews per month and our YouTube channel has exceeded 3.6 million cumulative views.
For folks looking to advertise on Hizook, we offer the following three possibilities:
Reputation is everything to us. Sponsorship as a two-way street between Hizook and our Readers: we receive financial resources to write world-class articles and develop unique products; readers are exposed to high-quality products and / or companies. You (the Sponsors) will benefit from exposure to thousands of academic and professional roboticists, but ultimately our primary concern is that you're a damn-good outfit that provides real benefits to roboticists -- ie. we're very selective.
OK, that said... we have the following advertisement placements available to sponsors on the right-hand sidebar:
|Tier 1 and Tier 2 are virtually identical, except that Tier 1 occupies the first two ad slots (numbering 1-2) that sit "above the fold" and are immediately visible upon pageload for virtually 100% of Hizook's visitors (see graphic at right; learn more via Google Labs' Browser Size Tool). Because of this, Tier 1 ad slots command a 20% premium. Tier 2 slots (numbering 3-N) sit below the Tier 1 slots.|
The rate for this quarter is $7.50 CPM, with an estimated 17,000 impressions / month. This results in the following rates for right now:
|Tier 1:||$7.50 CPM x 17k impressions x 20% premium =||$153.00 / month|
|Tier 2:||$7.50 CPM x 17k impressions =||$127.50 / month|
The CPM rate and/or estimated impressions are subject to change between quarters. Billing will occur at the onset of each quarter.

Affiliates links may be placed all throughout the Hizook website, linking directly to relevant products. Generally speaking, we seek out affiliates relationships directly with established programs -- the canonical example is Amazon.com. However, if you have an existing affiliate-tracking system and would like to be considered for inclusion on Hizook, contact us.
There are numerous Google Adword units (text-based) on Hizook's webpages. Notable locations include the right side-bar below the Sponsors and Affiliates, and also at the bottom of each Hizook article. You can enroll in Google Adwords and target these advertisement placements at your discretion.
