TrafficX- This free banner exchange "guarantees" traffic for your site. If you abide by their terms, and you don't receive any clickthroughs within one month of placing their code on your page, you'll get 10 free credits and get your banner placed on their font page for one week.
LinkExchange - This banner exchange service is the biggest and best-known of its type. We've used this service since June, 1996, and have found them to be reliable and competent, two qualities that are quite rare in the banner industry. You get one exposure of your banner for every two hits to your page. Banners at one time here were 400-by-40 pixels, but Link Exchange is starting to phase out this size in favor of the increasingly-universal 468-by-60 size.
SmartClicks- An innovative banner service that goes above and beyond most other link exchanges in many ways in that you can target your banner to a specific audience. We've used SmartClicks for two years and have generally been impressed, particularly with their targeting control panel and stats.

Free Web Space
Tripod- The second largest free Web page service, Tripod unfortunately subjects its visitors to annoying pop-up advertising buttons, an increasing trend among free space providers. You get 11 megabytes of space for your site. You have two options: if you're a beginner, you can use the "Quickpage" option if you want Tripod to write your page's coding. If you know HTML coding, you can do it yourself through the "Custom" option.
GeoCities- The largest free Web space provider, GeoCities recently increased the amount of Web space they offer from six to 11 megs. You start out by staking your claim in a GeoCities "neighborhood" that offers pages with similar themes to yours. You then submit an application and are given a password for use in creating your own personal home page. You are then able to use GeoCities' file manager utility to create your home page. Or, you may submit your custom home page and GIFs/JPGs graphics files using the "EZ File Upload Utility." You can also upload your Web page and other files using an FTP client such as this. Like many free Web hosters, GeoCities requires members to either display an annoying "pop-up" banner, or a regular banner at the top of their pages.
Xoom- Xoom, the people noted for their extensive clipart collections, also offer a very popular (3 million members) free Web page service. Xoom recently increased the amount of free Web space they offer from 5 to 11 megs. You may use your free Web space to build your personal or small business home page.
