How to use Google Images to Find Banners for your Campaigns

We have almost 6,000 banners available to our publishers on PeerFly. Believe it or not, that is not enough. The banners that we add to our network are those that have been provided to us by the advertiser. So, not all campaigns will have banners (yes, even those that allow banner display traffic) and some of the offers only have a few banners available and they are not always in the size you need. What can do you? Google Images has the answer (or at least one of them).

Google Images has a great feature that allows you to search by image size. It’s not really apparent how to do this at first, but it’s actually very simple.

Step 1

Go to Google Images (images.google.com).

Google Images home

Step 2

Type in a keyword for the offer you want to promote. In this example I am going to use Apple iPad 2 (3541). So, I type in free iPad.

step 2

Step 3

Type in the word imagesize: and then put the widthxheight of the banner you want to find.

step 3

In the example above I am looking for banners that are 468×60. You can search for whatever size you need though. The same would work for 300×250, 160×600, etc.

Now, you should have a nice list of banners in front of you. Download any of the ones you like and try them out on your campaign.

Use PeerFlyBanners.com

I have been working to update PeerFlyBanners.com so that you can pick and choose which banners you want to rotate. This has not been completed yet, but I hope to release it in the next month or so. PeerFly Banners allows you to automatically rotate offers within any vertical of any size from PeerFly. It’s a great tool for split testing offers and seeing what works with your traffic. I am happy to announce we recently passed 1,000,000 impressions!

I hope this makes it a little easier for you if you are trying to use banners to promote your affiliate campaigns. If you plan to test our offers at PeerFly, make sure that they allow Banner Display traffic and do not specifically restrict using banners besides the ones provided by us.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions! 🙂
