Post and Manage Advertisements

- What kind of advertisements can I post?

Advertisements in all categories are welcomed. However, we prohibit the advertising of any item that is illegal. Please read the User Agreement for details.

- I could not find a category that fits my advertisement. How to suggest one?

If you desire a new category or sub-category, please Contact Us. We will consider your suggestion in next website update. But we cannot promise to add any new category probably because of existing database design. Before a new category is available, you may post your advertisement to a closer category.

- Is there any limitation on the format and size of advertisement description?

Currently, the advertisement description should be in text format only. HTML format is not supported. The size of advertisement description can be up to 5000 characters.

- Why do I have to set an ad password when posting new advertisement?

You need to set an ad password (any word) by yourself when post an ad item. The ad ID and associated ad password are required to access (update, modify, extend, delete) your ad later. Setting a password for each ad now is required when post new ad. We received many requests in the past for setting a password because the ad owner wanted to modify the ad. We have limited resource to handle user comments or requests. Now we ask the user to set the password when posting so that you can extend, update, modify or delete your ad later all by yourself. You need to write the ad ID and ad password on your note.

If you forget the ad password but want to manage your ad, you may continue to Contact Us. Please mention your ad ID when you send request. We may set an ad password for you. If you forget the ad ID, you may search ads on our website using one or more most important keywords from your ad title and description, and try to find your ad from the search result. The ad ID is part of the URL (shown at the address box of your browser) of viewing the individual ad page.

- Should I give my email address and phone number when posting new advertisement?

They are optional. If you hope ad viewer contacts you via email or phone, you may add these contact information. If you just want others to visit your other related website, you may leave these fields blank and type in your other link/URL. Please be aware, if you provide your contact information, they are visible to all individual visitors and search engines. Your contact information could be shown on search engines' result page or cache. Please read our Privacy Statement for more information.

- Is there any way to keep my ad on top of the search list?

Yes. We provide a feature "Update" on Manage Ad page. It does not change the content of your ad. It just changes the last modified time (one attribute we stored in our database) of your ad as current time. The search result list by category and ad owner name now is sorted by the update time (last modified time). The latest is shown first. Every time you "Update" or Modify your ad, the last modified time is changed to current time. So, your ad can be displayed on top of the search list (except featured ads) by just "Updating" your ad.

- How many times can I "Update" my ad?

Currently there is no limitation on updating any ad. You can update your ad at any time.

- What are the benefits to use the "Update" ad feature?

In addition to keeping your ad on top of search result, here are other benefits:
  - Save your time to post your ad.
  - Reduce the number of duplicate ads.
  - Avoid your ads being deleted. When we see duplicate ads, we may delete one or more of your duplicate ads, or sometimes delete
    all of your posts if we see too many duplicate ads from you.

The most important, visitors can find your ad:
  - Your ad is displayed on top of search result by category on our website.
  - Your ad could be indexed and cached by major search engines after it is online. The visitors of these search engines could find your ad
    by searching some keywords that exist in your ad content. They click the link to our website and view the details of your ad.
    If you delete your old ad because you want to post a new one with same content (avoid duplicate posts), the visitors from search
    engines will get a message that the old ad has been deleted. There is no way to redirect them to your new ad.

So, we encourage you to use the "Update" feature.

- Can I post same or similar content advertisements in same or different categories?

NO! Please do not post the same content ad in same category on this website. Your advertisement can be searched by keywords no matter in what category. We do not check duplicate posting when submitting new advertisement. Sometimes we allow 2 similar content postings in different categories. However, we could delete any posting from wrong category without notice. One or all duplicate ads from the same owner could be deleted too. We recognize the owner by name and the IP address. Please do not post your same content advertisement to every category. If you are abusing the free service, all your posts could be deleted without notice, and you may be declined to post any more ads on this website.

- How long does an ad run?

All ads can be online for 365 days by default. Ad owner can Extend the ad up to 365 days for free before it expires. An ad can be extended unlimited times. Ad owner can Delete the ad at any time. An ad could be deleted by our team for various reasons include but not limited to duplicate postings.
