How It Works And How To Use Advertising In Your Hosted Site

The insertion of advertisements on your hosted site is not required, if you decide to do so you have to keep these few important points in mind:

  • Advertisers offers advertisements to be displayed on your hosted site, they pay you for displaying ads and it's expect from you the maximum fairness about it.
  • As you are free to disable or remove advertisements from your hosted site at any time, advertisers may decide not to buy more advertising space on your hosted site, permanently or temporarily, according to the advertising campaigns they made available for your hosted site.
  • The market value of advertisements may change from time to time, it's subject to seasonal trends and then, in the same way, the proposed rates may vary over time, as well as vary the available advertising formats, because, you know, the world changes.
  • The more you earn and more we earn. Altervista and advertisers have all the advantage of encouraging the inclusion of advertisements on most sites and, since no one is obliged to display advertising, try to always offer the best rates and the best formats available on the ad market, that thou may be always satisfied with the performances of the ad system and motivated to continue with us.
  • Altervista has some exclusive agreements with advertisers, therefore you can place on your site only advertisements that are in your control panel, unless you do not have specific agreements with Altervista that authorize you to include other forms of advertisements.
  • Being fair is crucial in the ads system: both you and the advertiser have to gain from advertising on your hosted site, fairly. You have to pay attention to the quality of contents you produce and publish, you have to display advertisements correctly on your hosted site, with the right proportions (do not accumulate banners).
