Fine print

Advertising is presently sold on a monthly basis — 31 days, to be exact. Pricing is not subject to audience fluctuations. We currently serve about 100,000 pageviews per month, not counting bots and other automated “readers.” We don’t guarantee this number. We also don’t charge extra if we exceed it.

Ads are ROS – Run Of Site. Your ad appears in the specified position on every page that normally carries ads. (A few specialty pages do not carry ads in every position for various technical reasons).

Rates are subject to change monthly. Your rate is guaranteed for the entire 31-day period.

If you aren’t happy with the results of your campaign, you may cancel at any time and receive a credit for days not used.

We generally accept advertising for all legal products and services, with the exceptions of sex services, alcohol, tobacco and firearms. However, we reserve the right to reject any advertisement for any reason.
