Truth in Advertising
Here at Penobscot Bay Pilot, we pride ourselves in providing timely answers and information, as well as establishing an online community network through which businesses can actively engage with and reach a broad market of consumers and buyers.
In our sales efforts, we strive to be completely transparent with our business partners, our "Affiliates," about the business of advertising online, and with the community that turns to us as a resource. We believe that our product, and the service and technology that we provide, offer a unique and innovative platform that supports our community and its businesses and will only continue to grow as more and more people learn of our presence.
One of the key factors in making online advertising decisions today, is understanding true traffic numbers. For our advertisers, we want you to know that our traffic numbers reflect actual human readers. We filter out traffic that stems from online automated "robots," "spiders" and "web crawlers," which are used to scrape content for search engines and other automated content scraping and aggregating efforts for use on Flipboard, Skygrid and others. Our research shows that our numbers are in line with Google Analytics, which also filters out robot traffic. Please note, these robots still crawl our site and gather content to share across the Internet, providing search engine marketing benefits. We simply do not feel that it is a legitimate representation of our traffic to include those views in our statistics. The Penobscot Bay Pilot strives to provide truth in its advertising, and we diligently work to ensure information we share with you reflects the true readership in the community.
The Pilot Affiliate offers local businesses and organizations the opportunity to communicate their brand, specials, promotions, events and business information on to our website. This advertising program is designed to give businesses maximum visibility at an affordable price through online and social media marketing venues.
