Advertising On American-Rails.com

Since its inception early 2007 American-Rails.com has become a leading online resource covering the railroad industry with topics ranging from locomotives and fallen flags to railroad museums and tourist trains.  Below are a few of the site's online credentials:

  • With 175,000 - 225,000  page views per month American-Rails.com is one of the most popular railroad resources  on the Internet.  The site also receives hundreds of visitors each day searching for train rides, many related to special events such as fall foliage trips, "Thomas The Train" rides, and the very popular "Polar Express" excursions during the Christmas season (the "Polar Express" searches peak in October through December and drew between 110,000-160,000 visitors  each year during 2014 and 2015).
  • According to Alexa.com, the most trusted and accurate website traffic gauge, American-Rails.com currently lists in the top 0.0435% of all websites on the Internet. 
  • Many of the site's primary keywords such as "American railroads", "diesel locomotives," "railroad history," "fallen flags," and "freight cars," among  many others list on Google's first page.
  • Finally, as an added incentive railroad/train updates or news releases (such as new products or an upcoming excursion trip) can be posted to the website's social media presence on Facebook and Twitter; combined these currently total more than 28,000 followers

Ad Layout & Design

Most featured [desktop] ads would display a 336 x 280 pixel image, as seen on this page (This is subject to change based on what may be best for a particular advertiser.  Please note, a larger image may increase the final cost.), in the right or left column of nearly every page (for an idea of how this would appear, there are thumbnail images currently featured in these columns which open to general articles within the site).  In addition, a 950 x 90 pixel image is available, located at the top and/or bottom of each page.  Your ad may also open an article fully describing your organization's/company's service(s) or product(s) and would be as large, or small, as you would like with accompanying photos, documents, or anything else you would like included with the information. (Please note that your ad may be updated with a new image throughout the year whenever you like and for any reason.  For instance, if you are a tourist railroad and wish to highlight your upcoming fall or Christmas/holiday trains via a themed image you can certainly do so.)

It is my sincere hope you get the most out of advertising on American-Rails.com.  The idea behind the article, for example, is to increase a potential customer's/visitor's immediate interest and that they will want to learn more about your product(s) or service(s).  In addition, of course, would be included the company's website.  Lastly, if-needed I can custom-build your ad for you.  If so, please have your image and/or general information ready along with an idea of how you would like it to appear.

Pricing & Cost

For complete information about pricing please contact me.  In addition, If this is something you might be interested in I am very willing and open to the idea of running a 336x280 pixel ad for you at no cost whatsoever for one month so you can get a better idea if it is something you may want to continue with moving forward.
