Putting spaces between advertisements


So I run a website called www.jsjoneswriter.com. Recently, I put up two advertisements through GoDaddy Affiliates. The problem is, two of my banners are too close to each other.

What I don't want:

Banner 1 Banner 2

When I want

Banner 1 (__(Add a bunch of space, here)________________________________) Banner 2

Sorry! This discussion wouldn't let me just space Banner 1 & Banner 2 apart. Just pretend there's no (____) but just a lot of space. That's what I do want to have on my site :)

I'm trying to figure out in html how to space them further apart. Below is the html. Any advice helps.

Hi Jeff, I guess you are looking for a quick answer? You'll need to change you inline anchor ( <a> ) elements to inline-block anchor elements. then you can add margins. Try adding a style property to the first advert.

<a href="*" style="display: inline-block; margin-right: 30px;"/>

You can adjust the gap by increasing or decreasing the margin pixel ( px ) amount. Remember to test this on mobile as your customers may be viewing your site from a phone.

Thanks, Phil! Helpful
