Scrolling Text Ads - Free advertising on other peoples sites
This is a bit of a blatant advert but the guy that has done this also hosts the counter on my personal site for free so its time I returned the favour. I'm one for trying to avoid popups and adverts as much as possible and when I received something about this in my email I was scepticle but decided that I had faith in the guy. I can't say it better than the site so here you are:
This website is an advertising exchange of Scrolling Text Ads. After you sign up (for FREE!) you will be given a line of HTML code to be put on your website (we'll help you out with this if you don't know HTML). The code will cause your visitors to see a Scrolling Text Ad.
Why would you want this? For every 4 times you show an ad on your website, an advertisement for your site will be shown on someone else's site 3 times. This lets you get more traffic at no cost to you.
Why Scrolling Text Ads?
This new type of advertisement has several advantages over other forms of ads:
They're seen. Click-through rates on banner ads are at an all-time low. Internet users have become "blind" to anything that is animated or about the size of a banner.
They're not annoying. Pop-Ups and Pop-Unders are often closed before they even have a chance to load. Pop-Ups also lead to unhappy users and a diminished image. On the other hand, Scrolling Text Ads are set aside in the corner of the screen and can be closed easily. Furthermore, our software is designed so that the same user will not see more than one Scrolling Text Ad every fifteen minutes.
They're not blocked. Almost 40% of Internet users use Pop-Up blocking software. And with major ISPs like EarthLink announcing built-in Pop-Up blocking, this number isn't getting any smaller.
Everyone's placement is the same. Whenever an exchange lets it's users choose the placement of their ads (for example, all banner exchanges and text exchanges), they run into problems. If they give credit for impressions, it becomes a game of who can give the worst placement. If they credit for clicks, the ads become extremely irrelevant (what's the chance of someone clicking on an ad for rare cactus seeds?).
What's in it for us?
Remember how for every 4 ads you show, 3 of your ads are shown? The ad left over is pooled together with the left-over ads of other members and is sold to advertisers by us. This helps pay for the cost of running the service.
On the other hand, a 4:3 ratio is still a great deal. Traditionally, banner exchanges have a 2:1 or 3:2 ratio (if you're bad at math: 4:3 is the best for you).
Okay that was a bit long but here is the link to the site if you are interested and check out my URL=http://www.topfunwebsites.com]TopFunWebsites[/url] if you want an example of how it will look.
