HispanicBusiness.com Ad Specifications

Supported Placements

HispanicBusiness supports advertising in the following placements:

  • Banner ads

  • Newsletter ads. Note that reporting differs substantially for newsletter ads than for banner ads.

  • Classifieds

Supported Media Types

HispanicBusiness will accept the following media types:

  • GIF-formatted images

  • JPEG-formatted images

  • SWF-formatted Flash files

    • Flash files need to read the clickTAG variable that is being passed into it and then navigate to that URL that is stored in the clickTAG variable.

    • More information on Preparing Flash for Click Tracking can be found here!

  • JS client-side script

  • Rich media types including expandable ads such as Pointroll or Eyeblaster (see below for additional specs)

Unsupported Media Types

HispanicBusiness cannot support the following media types:

  • HBI-hosted RTSP streams, including Real streams and QuickTime streams

  • Client-side scripted dynamic advertisements which rely on nonstandard javascript and which cause pages on which they are served to fail on popular browsers


HispanicBusiness strives to be compatible with most third-party ad server tracking methods. This involves a series of redirections pointed to the browser when the content is downloaded, and when the ad is clicked. HispanicBusiness currently tracks:

  • The number of times an ad is placed over the course of a campaign (impressions). Note: HispanicBusiness does not track the number of times the content of an ad is requested by the browser.

  • The number of times an ad is clicked over the course of a campaign. Note: this tracking is for banner ads only. Other placements may or may not support this tracking. Also, if the ad is hosted by a third party, the amount of tracking that can be relayed from HBI´s server to the third parties, and the amount of tracking that can be relayed from the third party´s server to HBI´s server, is subject to a certain degree of variance.
