Most common web-banner formats in Norway (mest vanlig banner formater i Norge)

After some research, I (believe) I have found the most common webbanner formats in Norway.

Both the ad agency McCann Norge and webproduction company Jucicy agree that these are the 3 most common sizes: - Board: 468x400
- Topbanner: 768x150
- Skyscraper: 180x500 (can have different heights)

Microsoft Advertising Norge say they use mainly

- 300x250

- 234x60

But, they also have: 728x90, 160x600 and 180x150

This is the overview from VG banner formater
Format Pixler (bredde x høyde) Maks kB
Toppboard 768 piksler 150 piksler 50 kB
Nettboard 468 piksler 400 piksler 60 kB

Webchat on your website using Gtalk or Yahoo

Olark, previoulsy known as (which was a MUCH better name btw), offers easy and free webchat functionality to your website. When you are connected on Gtalk it will show on your website without revealing your username.

Really great if you have a webshop for example and want to chat with your customers.

Great work Olark!

Download Youtube videos easily

Gazzump (previously known as Farkie) downloads and converts Youtube videos, MySpace playlists, movies, audio, images, and much more into several different formats such as mp3, avi, mov, etc. Its kind of slow at times, but still usefull if you want to for example check out a video offline or listen to a song as a mp3 that you cant find anywhere. (Example: The fantastic song "Bonkers" by Dizzee Rascal & Armand Van Helden is not available on iTunes, nor have I found it in any shop, but its on Youtube...)

Only bad part about Gazzump is that you have to register.
