Guaranteed CTR

On top of page banners and targeted minibanners, we guarantee a click-through ratio of at least 1%. We reserve the right to cancel a campaign (and refund any unused money) at any time if, in our sole discretion, it becomes clear that a campaign is not well suited to the site. We try only accept campaigns that we think will do well.

Sponsor banners are interspersed with other banners in such a way as to avoid banner overload; the interleaving of your banners with other sponsors and bartered banners can be adjusted to meet your requirements.

Bonus Email Sponsorship

Such clickthroughs are counted as equivalent to clicks on the banners themselves for the purposes of meeting the 1% CTR guarantee.
