7. Free Advertising for your WebAlias
a. How does the WebAlias free advertising program work?
We believe that when you join The WebAlias Network, we become your partner working to build as much traffic to your website as possible. Advertising is a great way to generate traffic, but is usually expensive. We are now going to change that.

Not only will we automatically create for you full-size banner ads (using the text you specify in your WebAlias Network account setup), we will even run those ads throughout our site - all at absolutely no cost to you! Of course, if for some reason you'd prefer not to participate, you have that option.

This is how it works: several times a day, our free advertising system randomly selects a large group of member sites, generates full-size, professional-quality, animated banner ads for each and places them into the advertising rotation on our website, right next to our paying advertisers. When somebody clicks on your ad, we send them to your website - what could be better?

Please be advised that the system will not select your WebAlias if you have access restrictions in effect at that time.

b. Free advertising sounds too good to be true - is there really NO catch?
There are no hidden fees, membership charges or add-on fees. And because this is NOT an ad exchange, there is nothing you need to do in return for the advertising.

c. What will my banner ad look like?
We have many, many unique ads that our system can use for your WebAlias. All are full-sized (468x60 pixels), professional-quality, and animated.

To see some actual ads we have created and displayed for members, click here.

d. Can I create my own banner ad and give it to you to run?
Unfortunately, no. Although we would like to offer that option right now, we cannot - at least not yet. One reason for this is that we simply don't have the facilities to store a banner ad for each and every member of The WebAlias Network. Another reason is that we need to be certain that every ad is of the highest quality, so we simply create them for you.

e. What do you suggest I use as my advertising text?
Welcome to Madison Avenue! Writing good advertising copy (the term for this text) is not simple, so you should think carefully about it. What you're striving for is text that catches the viewer's interest and draws him/her to click on your ad. Keep your words and your message truthful, clear, brief and easy to read and understand.

f. What restrictions are there on my free advertising?
Even though we do not charge you for this advertising, we do expect you to participate in a professional and responsible manner. Because your banner ad will be part of a rotation that includes those of paid sponsoring advertisers, if your ad is inappropriate, it will reflect poorly on us as well as on those other advertisers - something we cannot allow.

THEREFORE, PLEASE BE ADVISED:
1. DO NOT use vulgar, obscene or inappropriate language! Our staff reviews all the text before the our system generates its banner ads, and any ad we deem unsuitable or unprofessional will not be created. You also risk deletion of your WebAlias if you blatantly disregard this policy;
2. We will not run ads promoting adult-oriented content, illegal or inappropriate activities or any other subject matter that we deem unsuitable for viewing by all visitors to our website.

g. What if I don't want you to advertise my WebAlias?
If you don't want our system to generate and run free banner ads for your WebAlias, simply leave the two lines in your account information regarding advertising text blank.

Any time you want to participate, simply update your account information and include the desired text in those two lines.
