  Make your best offer for each category chosen for your 30 day ad space. The ads from the 30 highest offers will be rendered into 30 reserved spot ad space. These 30 ads are presented in order by price, starting with the ad with the highest bid price and time posted. Ads with bids not in the top 30 are randomly generated and are displayed in the 10 slots below the reserved spots at each page refresh. Your ad's position will adjust in accordance with the posting and expiration of other people's ads.

To place your bid, review the price shown for the current highest listed bids. Determine how much you want to bid for each category. Currently you can have your ad posted at an introductory price of $1. Let's look at some examples. Point [D], illustrates a bid price that will put the ad at the first reserved position upon submition for this category. The offer price at point [E] will put this ad at position 4, after the ad with the same price bid from someone with a earlier posting. At point [F], the offered bid is not in the top 30 bids. The ad will be randomly generated among other ads in this category and displayed in the lower 10 ad spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q How do I know exactly at which position my ad is rendered?
A When submit your payment at final review (see Step 3), we inform you approximately your position at that moment in comparison with other posted ads in that category. Depending on new postings and expirations, you ad's position will change. Higher offers will lower your position, but ad expirations may elevate it. There is an account management section ("My Account") for you to review the current standings of your ads.
Q Can I increase my offer price if I see my ad is appearing too low on the ad space hierarchy?
A Your offered bid is locked for the 30-days. If you are interested in having your ad in a higher spot, we encourage you to make a brand new offer. There is no limit on how many ads you can post!


  Final procedure in posting your ad is review your aproximated ad position and grand total [G] for all of your ad offers. Because this advertising system is dynamic, the ad position in the final review is not guaranteed. If another advertiser submits a higher or equal bid during the time you execute the final submission step, your ad position will be adjusted accordingly.
