At InfoWorld Electric, we offer ad medallions which are arranged in a vertical
column along the right side of the editorial copy. Because it places the ad creative
in view during the vertical scroll through the text, it has a different impact from a
banner which appears only at the top or bottom of a page. And of course, multiple medallions
are run together in the column, rather than a single banner per page. The Wall
Street Journal follows a similar model. There are a variety of interesting
ramifications in terms of expected impressions and clickthroughs compared to banners, so I think
it is safe to give medallions their own classification.
