I've been creating my own anime website and once I finish it, I plan to advertise it at anime conventions to get traffic. I would like to know what are the best conventions to buy advertising at. Preferably cons that won't charge too much but my website will still be seen plenty of otaku. Thank you in advance.

I'd say aim for the mid-size conventions. They're big enough that lots of people will see the advertising, but not so huge that the price of an ad will be huge.
You mighr want to shop around a bit more too. Some cons have different price points depending on things like whether or not something is a full/half/quarter page or in black and white versus color.

Program guide advertising is not cheap at most conventions, especially medium and large conventions. Your best bet may be to print up some flyers, make a ton of photocopies, and place those on flyer tables. That's what we've done for this site in the past.
