Advertising And Sponsorship Opportunities
Grow your brand and make direct sales with this rapidly growing site and its passionate readers
AmazingRibs is by far the #1 most popular barbecue and grilling website in the world and it ranks among the top 50 food websites in the nation.
The site features tested recipes, education, techniques, tips, science, mythbusting, and buying guides. Advertising on AmazingRibs.com is a great way to build your brand or make direct sales.
Think about this: In 2014, precisely 11,329,386 unique visitors came to AmazingRibs.com while only 3,500,000 people attended baseball at Yankee Stadium. That's three times the amount! And 2015 is on track to hit 45,000,000 pageviews.
According to the rating service comScore, AmazingRibs.com was ranked in the top 50 in total visitors in the food category in the US among tens of thousands of food sites including commercial sites. This placed the site ahead of such monsters as Emeril, Saveur magazine, Lean Cuisine, and Oscar Mayer (and they have Wienermobiles)!
Our rapid and steady growth is due to its prominent ranking in organic (unpaid) Google Search and other search engines. The site is fortunate to have more than 30 important keywords listed in the top 10 on Google, Bing, Yahoo! and other search engines. This is a reflection of quality.
We use Google Analytics (GA) to track usage statistics. GA is generally considered the best and most reliable source of traffic stats. Qualified prospective advertisers can contact us and we can supply you with reports direct from Google.
We use third party auditing services to measure the demographics of the site, Google and Quantcast. They differ significantly because measuring demographics is an inexact science at this time. Here's a typical snapshot:
53% No Kids
37% No College

Menu of ad options
We believe strongly in the wall between editorial and advertising so all our ads are sold by third parties. Here is how to select the spaces you want and how to contact the party who sells it.
There are many location and rate options depending on your budget. Below is a tasty menu.
(Space A) Leaderboard 728 x 90 pixels
(Space B) Top Rectangle 300 x 250 pixels
(Space C) Skyscraper 300 x 600 pixels
Spaces A, B, and C are best suited for major corporations with significant ad budgets. You pay per 1,000 pageviews (CPM). Ads are run of site, meaning they appear on thousands of pages. This means your ads enjoy maximum visibility and impact. You can buy for as long or short as you want, or set a dollar limit. Contact us.
(Space D) Google AdsWords
These ads are well suited for small to medium sized businesses. Google AdWords offer ads that charge you only if someone clicks on it, known as Cost Per Click (CPC). Advertisers go to their site and bid on a list of keywords that appear in the articles on each page. Google AdWords are text only, and you can put a picture in your ad with VSW. If you work with either of these services, you can specify that you want to be on AmazingRibs.com or simply arrange to have your ads placed on sites related to your products.
