technologies is how it quickly and easily draws those
who would otherwise be disconnected, together. This is
highlighted through the popularity of social media,
blogs, forums, and other kinds of platforms where people
gather to trade opinions and ideas on a variety of
topics. One such website or platform is Nairaland,
hosted at Nairaland.com.

clearly laid out navigation, visitors to Nairaland.com

Using Nairaland.com: How Nairaland Works
Nigerians can use the Nairaland forums as either a
visitor or registered user. Of course, registered users
are likely to enjoy more benefits than a guest browser.
This is as guest browsers are not able to participate
actively in forums through activities such as posting
messages and responding to those messages from others.
Another member perk is the birthday shoutout registered
users enjoy when their birthday rolls around as per the
address they provided. Finally, registering at
Nairaland.com is easy and free.
Importantly, there is a space on the Nairaland
Nairaland.com main page for advertisers to benefit from
the platforms high traffic volume. By simply selecting
one of the "how to" place targeted ads options listed on
the site, advertisers can begin the process of placing
banner ads on the website. For starters, those persons
wishing to utilize the targeted ads feature of the
website must be registered users.
Targeted User Advertising At Nairaland.com
Once registered, they are expected to use the
recommendations of the Nairaland team. These
recommendations include ensuring that the banner ad is
well designed using high-resolution images and graphics.
Of course, a professional graphic designer can help you
with the same. In addition to a high-quality design, the
banner ad must meet certain size specifications. These
size specifications require that the ad is a borderless
ad that is 106 pixels in length or height, and 318
pixels wide. Finally, the final banner image must be in
either .png or .jpg format and less than 30KB in size.
Ads that have met all the above requirements can be
uploaded to Nairaland.com/campaign in addition to a
landing page URL (this link will be where users are
taken after they click the uploaded ad).
After upload, users simply wait to see if their ad will
be approved by the Nairaland team. If the ad is
approved, users can rest assured that Nairaland.com has
a robust algorithm to ensure advertisers get what they
pay for by way of traffic. Online betting or forex
trading ads, health remedy ads not verified by NAFDAC,
MLMs, and HYIPs, and otherwise morally, or ethically,
questionable ads, are those likely to be rejected by
Nairaland's Nairaland.com team.
