Advertise on the Isle of Wight Index

The Isle of Wight Index (Wight Index), is a well established index of Isle of Wight based websites, set up in 1997. In its simplest terms it is the Yahoo! Directory of the Isle of Wight.

The history behind this website is one of the key reasons for it’s success in the UK’s major search engines. The website is totally independent and completely unbiased. Visitors submit websites to be included within the index, these are then manually reviewed and categorised. Additional Isle of Wight related content has been developed and this sits alongside the main web directory.

As a result of these outstanding search engine results, the Wight Index receives 1,750 visitors every day.

Banner Advertising Opportunities

Each area can only have a limited number of sponsors, and the spaces will be allocated on a strictly first come first served basis, with each advertiser being given the opportunity to renew each year.

Each sponsor on Wight Index will receive an advertising button, professionally designed, appearing on the chosen page.
