With over 100,000 active members displaying 5 million ad impressions a day, LinkExchange is the web's largest advertising network. Our mission is to help web sites promote themselves. LinkExchange members show ads for other members and paying sponsors, in return for in-kind advertising and a host of additional services.
LinkExchange was launched in March 1996 by Sanjay Madan and Tony Hsieh to help web site owners drive traffic to their sites through free banner advertising. The LinkExchange network includes both commercial and non-commercial sites and provides its members and paying advertisers with the most extensive reach of any online advertising channel.
LinkExchange offers an opportunity for web sites of all sizes to advertise across our vast network. Every member earns free advertising on the network, but we also provide a whole host of advertising packages for paying advertisers. With unparalleled reach, targeting, and affordable prices, advertising on LinkExchange offers small and large businesses one of the most effective ways to get exposure online.
LinkExchange was acquired by Microsoft in late 1998.
