    I've just finished coding a rotating banner ads system and I have implemented it on my website and was wondering for how much should I charge for those spots?

    They will be counted per impression so I'm looking for prices like $ * = * impressions

    According to Google Analytics, it gets 34291 visits, 28205 are unique, 136662 pageviews per month average.

    These ads will be shown on all of the pages on my website including the most visited page which is the redirect page.

    Yes thank you for reminding me, I forgot to mention this in the OP, but I haven't figured out the sizes yet, some suggestions would be nice. :)

    It depends on your site. (quality, engaging type, not for "google" like MNS )

    Please visit BuySellAds.com to study the ad rates based on traffic, etc. Then, you would be able to figure out on how much to charge for the ads.

    Higher traffic commands higher ad rates. Again, it depends on what kind of category/industry types.

    See the chart here to give you the idea:

    If your site is just a URL shortening service that means engagement is going to be really low. I don't think I would pay more than $0.50 - $1.00 per 1K impressions (advertiser perspective).
