_________________________________________________________________________________________________ To place an ad, you must email us: PetraGrail@yahoo.com To prevent fraud, we need the following information: 1) Your name 2) Your address 3) Your phone number and times you are available, if needed 4) Your e-mail address 5) Business name and address if different from above 6) Proposed text of ad 7) Your web address if your site is related to ad. This can make it easier for us to evaluate the legitimacy of the ad and/or product. In some cases, we may ask to see a sample of the item. Websites find this necessary because we receive offers for highly offensive items "disguised" as outwardly inoffensive materials. So we have to be extra-cautious. Please understand this caution benefits you too; you wouldn't want your ad to appear along side one promoting bigotry or a criminal offer. If the ad is deemed suitable, we will notify you and provide the cost for running the ad. If we can edit it down to save you money, we will seek your approval for any changes. You may pay by check or by money order. We expect to offer PayPal payment soon as well. Placing an ad with us constitutes acceptance of our ad policies as stated on our Classified Ads page. If you have not already read these, please take a moment to do so before submitting any ad. TO INSERT INTO A LINK SECTION ON A SPECIFIED PAGE, EMAIL US. WE OFFER SPECIAL PRICING FOR MULTIPLE INSERTIONS. NEGOTIABLE TERMS. NO FLASH MOTION or ANIMATION ACCEPTED, other than simple gif files. "Classifieds" $50 per line per year (no minimum number of years). AD MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE. To guarantee an ad runs by 1st of the month, payment must be received by 10th of the preceding month. Generally, we put up the ad as soon as check clears. So you may receive a few extra free days if this occurs prior to the 1st of the month. Note: PART OF A LINE IS BILLED AS A FULL LINE. So be sure to edit your text as tightly as possible. We are happy to help you do this. Feel free to submit a "rough" draft for us to edit down. Pictures, hot-links, and display or animated ads are now being allowed on our site, but we reserve the right to reject any ad which may have a negative visual or software impact on the page in question. HITS: This site was launched on July 12, 1998. At that time, the hit rate was about 50/week. By the spring of 2001, the hit rate had topped 2,000/week, and it continues to grow, and is currently around a third of a million page views per year. That's a growth rate of roughly 50% every two years. By 2011, we now expect half a million page views per year. Various pages in this website rank in the top ten on Lycos, Google, and other search engines for various terms related to our content. We will consider placing ads on most pages in the links sections, but we are avoiding adding top-of-the-page ads because this site is meant to inform, not generate ad revenues. Preference is given to ads that enhance that mission. No agencies. Principals only. MAX OUT YOUR IMPACT: If we find your ad-link especially informative for our visitors, we will consider bulk-rate pricing in which we will place your ad on multiple high-hit pages in the links sections.
