Banner Ads should be 120 pixels wide and under 30k. For other sizes contact Architecture Ink. Banner location is on the left vertical margin, which is a high visibility area. The paragraph below and accompanying graphic, from Google's AdSense web site, illustrate the relevance of ad positioning:
Certain locations tend to be more successful than others. The “heat map” below illustrates these ideal placements on a sample page layout. The colors fade from dark orange (strongest performance) to light yellow (weakest performance). All other things being equal, ad placements above the fold tend to perform better than those below the fold.
