How to Advertise on Mondoweiss

As a mission-driven, nonprofit news organization, we accept advertising only from sponsors whose practices do not violate our values. Foremost among these is the principle of equality and full human rights for all who live in Israel/Palestine or who are refugees living in exile from their homes in historic Palestine.


All advertising on is static display/banner ads (no moving images, sound or video). We offer three sizes:

Leaderboard (728 pixels wide x 90 pixels high), at a
cost of $2 per thousand impressions (CPM)

Square (250 pixels w x 250 pixels h), $2/CPM

Skyscraper (250 pixels w x 500 pixels h), $3/CPM

Leaderboard ads appear in one slot at the top of all site pages (home page, posts, static pages such as “About”). There may be up to four ads rotating in this slot at any time. Square and Skyscraper ads appear on posts, in the right margin to the right of post content. We display up to two slots for each of these sizes, with up to five ads rotating at a time in each size. Square ads are always above Skyscrapers . Evidence suggests readers stop seeing advertising that remains the same over time, so we rotate advertisements in each slot to maximize readers’ attention.

Space is sold in increments of 25,000 impressions (minimum 50k). Depending on site traffic, location and size of ads, advertisers on Mondoweiss have received between 3,000 and 10,000 impressions per day on average (no guarantee is offered). Mondoweiss makes no representations or guarantees as to how long an ad will run for a given purchase of total impressions.

Mondoweiss also offers advertising in our emailed newsletter, which readers can subscribe to by choosing between our a daily or weekly digest. Ads are displayed in the form of a horizontal banner ad (750 pixels w x 150 pixels h) which appears at the end of the newsletter. The cost is $75 for one week of advertising (which would include 6 daily emails plus one weekly). 

Those who advertise in our newsletter have typically received around 13,000 impressions per week (no guarantee is offered) and have been receiving a CTR between 0.30-1.14%.
