TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program http://www.trainweb.com/tech/banex.html
If your non-commercial website is currently hosted free at TrainWeb:
Your free clickable banner ad at TrainWeb is currently displayed more than 2000
times each month. TrainWeb has implemented a new feature, the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program,
which will tremendously increase the exposure of your banner ad to people interested in rail.
Not only will your banner ad appear in ad rotation at the top of almost every page at TrainWeb.com,
but it will also appear in ad rotation on the MAIN PAGE of almost every website hosted free on the TrainWeb servers!
This will greatly increase the number of people that will see your own clickable banner ad,
thus driving more visitors to your own website!
Some of you have already added the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program code to the main page of your website yourself.
Others have not yet done so due to various reasons.
There are a number of you that do web design without ever working directly with HTML code
and are not familiar with placing HTML code directly into your web pages.
Some of you have lost the access codes to your website and have not updated your website for some time.
You might find that someone from the TrainWeb Staff has already inserted the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program
code at the bottom of the main page of your website. If you do not find this code there now, you probably will
find it at the bottom of the main page of your website in the near future. We are doing this for you to expedite
matters and to get your site to reap the benefits of the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program as soon as possible.
Once you see the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program code at the bottom of your main page, please be sure
to download your main page before making any changes to it. Otherwise, you will wipe out the code when you upload
your modified page. Also, if you have not yet sent us a 200x40 pixel banner that is under 3000 bytes, please do
so as soon as possible. Once we receive your banner, we will start promoting it throughout TrainWeb!

to create a banner.
In addition to the main page of your website, you can also add the same TrainWeb Banner Exchange code to as many of
the other pages of your website that you wish. You might even want to place the TrainWeb Banner Exchange code on
every page of your website. The more exposure that you give to the TrainWeb Banner Exchange code, the more exposure
your own site will receive throughout TrainWeb.
For every two exposures that you provide of the TrainWeb Banner Exchange code,
your own clickable banner will receive one exposure on other websites hosted at TrainWeb!
The reason for the 2 to 1 ratio is so that we can provide exposure for TrainWeb Sponsors.
The financial support from the TrainWeb Sponsors make our free web hosting offer possible
along with all the other services provided by TrainWeb. They deserve your support and
we appreciate your participation in the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program.
If you have not already received an e-mail from the TrainWeb Staff containing your
TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program login information, then you should get such an e-mail in the near future.
If you would like to get started right away in adding the code to other pages on your website, or have
already received and misplaced the code, then
click here to request the
TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program login information for your website. The TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program
login information is not the same login information used to upload files to your website.
Whenever you send an e-mail to the TrainWeb staff, please tell us the URL of your website and your name.
When we reply, we will probably reply to the e-mail address under which you sent us your original request
to create your website. This is the e-mail address that we have on file as being the authorized contact for
your website. If you wish to change your contact e-mail address, the best way to do that is to send us a
request from the original contact e-mail address. If you no longer have access to that original contact
e-mail address, we will still honor your request if the request comes for an authorized e-mail address
that appears on your website.
Once you have your TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program login information, you should go to
to obtain your TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program HTML code. You can paste this code to any page on your website,
including your main page in case you accidentally delete the required code on that page.
You can also use the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program login information to view your banner statistics reports.
Below you can see a sample of how a banner from the TrainWeb Banner Exchange Program will appear on your page.
DO NOT COPY THIS CODE! You must go to
log in, and get your own code!
Having "www.trainweb.org", "www.trainweb.net" or "www.trainweb.net" as your URL prefix does not
imply that your organization endorses either TrainWeb or any of the other
organizations hosted at TrainWeb nor visa versa.
