Developers avoid clicking on banner ads that don’t provide any value and disrupt their workflow. Take advantage of three carefully selected ad units on Stack Overflow and give your brand maximum exposure to the world’s developers without preventing them from finding the programming answers they’re looking for.

Sidebar : 300x250

This ad unit is the only one that users with a reputation above 200 will see.

Top Leaderboard: 728x90

This ad unit is the most visible on the site.

Middle Leaderboard
Mid-page Leaderboard: 728x90

This ad unit is only shown when there are two or more answers to a question.
