More than 5,000 visitors daily use West Virginia Explorer to explore West Virginia and its travel venues.

West Virginia Explorer is among the Mountain State’s principal guides to tourism and has been for more than 20 years. No other publication has helped so many advertisers reach as many customers through innovative, well-written content. Experience allows us to engage vacationers and investors as no other publication has.

More than two million annual visitors now use West Virginia Explorer. According to an internal audit for February 2019, an average 7,160 users used the our site daily, 215,012 monthly, and 2,613,400 annually. These users visited an average of 14,008 pages daily, 420,252 monthly, and 5,112,920 annually.

We reach readers from as far away as the South Pacific almost daily, though the larger part of our audience hales from regions in which advertisers are most invested. The top 20 cities we reach, in order of daily traffic, are Washington, Charleston, New York City, Huntington, Morgantown, Beckley, Princeton, Fairmont, Pittsburgh, Clarksburg, Greenville, Boston, Atlanta, Parkersburg, Chicago, Nashville, Columbus, Teays Valley, Charlotte, Richmond.

Banner advertising provides advertisers a means to reach thousands of readers daily. Some advertisers choose to run banners on every page while others may work with our staff to create “zones” that reach specific audiences.

The simplest form of advertising we accommodate is a listing, which provides a client a link and a brief description of their product or service. A listing with us may also help your own website rank higher in search engines.

Sponsorships allow advertisers to help us provide content that benefits them as well as their audience. Because sponsorships are dependent on our editor and technical staff, they are arranged solely through the publisher.

Profile stories provide organizations the opportunity to reach customers by building positive, supportive content. Profile stories must be arranged through the publisher in cooperation with a public-relations company.
