We support a wide range of advert formats - depending on page location. You can choose to have an ad displayed section wide (i.e. on up to a maximum of 10 pages appearing under a specific section e.g. Home Theater Cables, LCD TV Reviews, etc.), or on one or more specific pages; some restrictions may apply as to the type and advert placement especially with respect to the Home page and some Tier 2 pages.

Note:

  1. You remain fully responsible for the correctness of the information on the adverts you submit to appear on our site.

  2. It remains our sole discretion whether to accept or reject advertisement on our site; while we will always remain flexible and will do our best to accommodate your request - as long as this is in line with the page theme on which it will appear - yet we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to accept your requested advert format, exact placement, or publication dates.

File formats

We can show display static ads in HTML text, GIF, JPEG, or PNG format but no Flash or animated graphics.

We can show text ads and custom articles in HTML format using our standard look and feel and style sheet.

  1. Prices shown above are indicative only. Minimum order is $50 for one month; however, we offer discounts of up to 20% on advertising campaigns with a minimum three-month duration on the second, third, and any additional consecutive months.

  2. Payment is strictly in advance via PayPal and should cover the full duration of the advertising campaign; it is simply not acceptable for us to do things on hoping to get paid! In other words, adverts will start to be displayed on our site once we receive a confirmation that payment have been made.

  3. If for some reason within the first month of your advertising campaign, you are not satisfied with how advertising on our site is helping your business and would want to stop your campaign, e-mail us stating the reasons for your dissatisfaction and we will refund on a pro-rata basis, any remaining pre-paid balance for campaigns in excess of one month less 20% administration fee. No refunds will be issued once the first month of the campaign elapses, nor do we give any refunds for one-month campaigns. Why?

Please understand that we incur expenses to set up the campaign. In addition, for the period the campaign remains active on our site, we are giving up valuable ad space, apart from sending high-quality traffic away from our site that might have clicked some other ad. We believe that as with all forms of business, advertising carries its risk; if you want to enter into a business partnership with us to help you advertise your products and services, then you have to share some of the risks as well.

Important: Practical-Home-Theater-Guide.com Text Link Policy

We get repeated requests from websites, often through link-building agencies, who want to use our online advertising service to purchase a text link on our site. These websites are trying to use the text link on our site to 'jump the queue' and boost their website ranking with SEs. We sincerely feel that this is an extremely selfish act; the only way to improve one's SE ranking is by building valid content - slowly but steadily - the way we have done it since our first online presence in November 2003.

We do not like such websites, nor will we assist such sites jump the queue. And all major search engines do not like such sites too. Hence, all paid text links will get the rel="nofollow" tag. For websites that are truly interested in buying ad space, the use of the nofollow tag will not make any difference in the quality or quantity of click-through traffic; the nofollow tag will simply tell SEs that is a paid link; people who visit the website would not notice any difference when clicking links with or without this tag in the link code.
