Benefits of advertising on

1) Your message is seen thousands of times.

2) Increase traffic to your Web site. We direct our web traffic to your website.  You save money promoting your website because we bring the traffic to you. This formula has proven successful for national advertisers.  We can do it for you on the local level. We take the vastness of the web and make it local.

3) Improve your search engine placement.  Search engines do not read graphics.  When we link your ad to your website we are sure to include your name in the text so it is read by search engines.

4) You get exactly what you pay for.  Your impressions are counted automatically by the software.

5) If our site is down for any reason you are not charged.

Choose the campaign that's right for you


Your ad displays on every available page on a rotating basis. It comes to the reader and is not lost when the reader leaves the home page.  Run-of-site inventory includes leader board sized banners at the top and bottom the home page, news story pages, and all other common pages at that do not have an exclusive sponsor.  You may also choose the box ad at the right side of these pages.


Your ad campaign can be designed for a specific target audience: readers who are most likely to use and benefit from your product or services. You select the specific section or pages on which you wish your ad to display.  Your ad will be viewed more frequently in this section only and share space with other advertisers wishing to target the same audience.
