1. Where will my banner be shown?

The Refer A Site network is actually a network of banner exchanges with a total of over 14,000 member sites. Together we show over 40 million banner impressions every month on all types of web sites. Over 95% are business sites. So that member sites have more incentive to give us a prominent spot on high traffic pages we adjust swap ratios according to where our ads are shown. The better the placement, the more exposure their banner gets.

I get a lot of folks that want a list of pages where their banner will show. Well, if I wanted to provide that it would be a full time job just keeping track of constantly changing web sites. Plus, my competition would love to get a hold of such a list. The bottom line is this... I run a very clean exchange. I reject any site that might be offensive to any member. No porn, hate sites, etc. not even sites that might be borderline.

I can't give you any specific time or web address to see your banner in action but if you have a lot of time you can browse our network until you run across it.

2. Can I target my ads?

Yes. You can choose to advertise across our whole exchange for maximum exposure or you can  choose to have your ads shown in up to 6 of the following categories/zones:

Art, Automotive, Books, Business Services, Contractors, Events, Finances, Health, Home, Internet, Kids, Organizations, Personal Services, Real Estate, Recreation, Retail.

3. My account is not showing my banner. Why?

Either your account is awaiting administrative approval or you don't have a banner uploaded.

4. I purchased impressions. Do I have to show banners on my site?

No. If you're not interested in earning additional impressions for your banner I won't twist your arm. Paid is paid and trade is trade.

5. I want to cancel my monthly banner subscription. How do I do that?

You can cancel your banner subscription by contacting customer support.

6. I forgot my user name and password, can you send them to me?

Not a problem. Go to the log in page and use the retrieval function. Simply enter either your user name or the email that you used when you signed up and your information will be emailed to you.

7. I just signed up for a swap account. Where's my 1k sign-up bonus?

All active swap members whose accounts adhere to our terms and conditions are eligible for the bonus.

8. How many banners can Refer A Site show for me and how fast?

That depends upon the size of your order.

Subscriptions will show in 30 days. Orders larger than 200k will take up to 90 days. Max delivery per order is 5 million impressions in 90 days.

9. How many visitors can I expect to get to my site using Refer A Site?

That depends on the appeal of your product and your banner. The average click rate across the whole exchange is right around 0.2% or 2 visitors per thousand impressions.

10. When I click my banner while in "Banner Management" nothing happens. Is it really pointing to my site?

It's probably working fine. When you view your banner using the "Banner Management" feature it is only showing you the image without a link to your web site. To see which url your visitors will be routed to, go back to your Members Home Page".  Click "Website Details". Here you will find your target URL listed in the text box right after where it says "URL*". Click "[ visit ]" to go to that URL.

11. The swap member code isn't working. Am I doing something wrong?

The code works. The most frequent problem is that it gets corrupted somewhere between Cut and Paste. Try grabbing the code again. If you still can't get it to work, try viewing the source code ("view" and then "source" in MS Internet Explorer) of the web page our code is on. Compare it with what we gave you. Some html editors and word processors like to discombobulate certain symbols so try to always use a simple editor like notepad when adding scripts to your web site.
