    In my opinion, you cannot find where your competitors buy banner ads. There are a few sites like banner garage where you can actually buy banner ads there. You can also try emailing site owners whom you think can benefit from the traffic that you are getting from your site and propose them a deal.

    Worry more about more important things otherwise your competitors will be 6x ahead of you before I make these post.

    So true. Why would you want to spy where your competitors are buying their banner ads from?

    If my main competitor buy ads on some resourses it means that this websites are visited by my potential clients too. So I'm interested in buying ads there as well.

    Or not. Banners ads don't convert well these days.

    Yeah, I agree. But it depends on websites where you buy ads. I get very good conversion rate from some ad spaces.
