Without revenue from advertisers, most blogs, newspapers, television and radio networks would not be in business.
This website is no different so it is important to us that our advertisers experience a very high return on investment and we work with each advertiser to ensure they are happy with their investment in our efforts.
We have updated our advertising rates and placement opportunities for our Havana Journal Network of websites (pdf will load in your browser) so businesses seeking to promote their products and services can advertise to a targeted Cuba-interested audience that most likely would purchase their product or service.

For a list of Cuba keywords and Google search results. This means that your ads will be seen by people that are interested in Cuba related issues.

HavanaJournal.com is a world renowned Cuba information resource covering Cuba business, culture, politics, travel and Cuban American issues for individuals and businesses preparing for a post-Castro post-Embargo Cuba.
Scarcity of Cuba Advertising Opportunities at other Cuba Sites: We did a thorough search for medium to high traffic Cuba related sites and found over 50 worth reviewing for our 2011Cuba Select Ranking review. We created several top ten lists based on different ratings criteria so advertisers can see the placement of HavanaJournal.com in each list. Note that most sites are run by individuals or small enterprises without ad space, universities, non-profit organizations or websites owned, controlled or influenced by the Cuban government. We were only able to find one site with an ad rate page but it is a narrowly focused pro-Embargo anti-Castro political blog.
Traffic: Thanks to our many years of hard work, unique content, incoming links, nearly 4000 members, dozens of high search engine placements etc, we are fortunate to have tens of thousands of unique visitors every month, many of them reading many pages of content that is relevant to their interests. So, we enjoy new visitors and repeat visitors literally every minute of every day.
