What is Display Advertising 

Display advertising is all over the web today.  Anytime you go to a website and you see an advertisement (typically on the top or on the right side of a web page) that can be clicked on you are seeing a display advertisement.  These ads are typically shown on a cost per thousand impressions basis.  Depending on the site and the quality of your ad pricing per thousand impressions can vary greatly.  Display advertising is a great way to build your brand awareness online.

How Arabic Display Advertising in the Middle East differs



Typically you will get more impressions for your spend in the Middle East than you would get in the United States.  It is important to mention that many of these impressions might not be of value to you.  There is an abundance of spammy sites in the Middle East that run Google Adsense to monetize their sites.  Many times you don’t want your ad to appear next to this kind of spammy content. That said, since the Cost Per Click in the Middle East is low you can get a lot of reach at a low cost but you need to make sure your targeting is precisely optimized.


Arabic  – عربي

Many companies make the mistake of just translating their display ads into Arabic as opposed to redesigning them for an Arabic audience.  Arabs read from right to left and ascribe different meanings to colors than westerners might ascribe to them.  It is important to keep these and other Arab usability principles in mind when creating banner ads.



For some reason click through rates appear to be higher in the Middle East than in other regions.  Many of these clicks are unqualified and will not result in a conversion so it is important to take this into account when doing display advertising on Google Ads or another ad network in the Middle East.  In addition to this you may find that your conversion rate is lower than it might be in Europe or the Americas but typically you will have a lower Cost per Acquisition (CPA) due to lower bid prices and less competition.



arab culture

Cultural factors in the Middle East can not be ignored when doing advertising in Arabic.  Religion and other cultural factors play a key role in Middle Eastern marketing.  It is important to choose a marketing agency that is aware of cultural differences in the region to avoid offending your audience or missing out on a sale due to poorly worded ad messaging.




All display campaigns require at least 2 ad variations at all three of the major banner ad sizes (160×600, 300×250, 728×90).  If you are unable to provide us with banner ads for your campaigns we can design them for you.
