Information and Exchange Rules

Q. What is Dating Ad Network?

Dating Ad Network is a free and robust online advertising engine for companies and webmasters who run dating and singles matchmaking websites. Dating Ad Network uses a state-of-the-art banner exchange system that offers a multitude of benefits, compared to other exchange services. You will get a healthy exchange rate 5:4 and detailed traffic statistics.

Q. How does it work?

You get more traffic by exchanging banner advertising. You would cut and paste a simple code into your pages — this code would display banners of other members on your site. Your banners are displayed on thousands of other dating and matchmaking websites around the world for free in exchange for advertising space on your sites.

This increases web traffic to your website and generates more sales for you.

As well, you can sell your ad space at any time. This would deactivate your banner advertising campaign but you would receive financial compensation for your unused banner impressions.

Q. Why exchange banners?

When visitors click away from your site you probably lose that traffic forever. Offering banner advertising means that you are exchanging "used" visitors for fresh ones who click on your banner on another client's site. New visitors may stay to sign up for your services, meaning more sales for you. The more traffic you exchange - the greater number of people who are likely to visit your site. This means increased sales and better profits for you.

Q. I believe I may lose traffic by linking to other sites.

Quite the opposite! You lose traffic by NOT LINKING to other sites. Think of your web site as a shop on a busy, downtown street; the more people who drop by the shop, the more your retail business prospers. If you think about it, you clearly cannot afford to opt out of a banner exchange network like Dating Ad Network! For more information see topic How it can benefit me?

Q. How it can benefit me?

All users coming through any given site will eventually leave that site. By providing links to and from other relevant sites you exchange leaving users for fresh users, thus exposing your site to a greater number of people. Increased traffic ultimately converts into increased sales.

Q. Is it easy to use?

Yes, it is very easy. Dating Ad Network is designed to be powerful, secure and easy to use. New members subscribe on the Join page and can start using the system right away. All you need to do is to copy and paste your banner codes into your pages where you want banners to appear.

Q. Is it free?

Yes, banner exchange on Dating Ad Network is free. You can also sell your banner spots for cash or buy additional advertising for your site.

Q. Why is it free?

This service is free because of a small ad exchange commission: for every 5 ad views on your site you receive 4 views of your own ads on the other dating-related websites. The remaining one view is offered to the paying advertisers, who cover the cost of running this service.

Q. Would my site be accepted?

We accept English-language high-profile dating-related websites, geared towards building lasting relationships.

Q. How and where do I send my banners so they start appearing on other sites?

In order to start showing your ads at other sites in the network you should upload your own banners first. To do this, just follow these 2 easy steps:
1. Login to your account at Login Page
2. Click on 'Banner manager' and follow the instructions to upload your banners.

Q. Can I use it on several pages on my site?

You can use Dating Ad Network banners on as many pages as you want, and you should. The more pages you use and the more traffic you exchange, the more users will come to see your site.

Q. Can I have several accounts?

Yes you can.

Q. How do I sell my ad space / impressions?

Login, click 'Sell Impressions' and sell your unused impressions. The payment will be issued to you within two business days.

Naturally, you need to have some impressions before you can sell them. To do this make sure that your impressions are "saved for sale or later usage" - this is set in Banner Manager individually for each banner spot. If you do not have your banners uploaded then your impressions will always be saved. But if you have your banners uploaded and set your impressions to power your banners - then all your impressions will be used in real time to rotate your banner ads and you won't be able to sell them.

Q. What if I see a banner not suitable for my website?

Report it. Our banner management team will investigate immediately and remove it from rotation. We do not welcome too suggestive, tasteless, obscene, confusing or offensive banners, but sometimes it is difficult to satisfy all of our exchange members. Even if the banner has been approved previously, we will review it again to ensure that it falls within the guidelines for acceptable banner advertising.

Q. How Dating Ad Network is different from other networks?

Dating Ad Network is the exclusive advertising network for the most demanding, high-profile dating-related websites with the most strict acceptance criteria in the industry. This guarantees the highest quality visitors for our members.

Our main focus is the rigid guidelines we use to keep our traffic acceptable. We only accept high quality dating web sites and work continuously to weed out cheating and ineffective accounts before they can harm the network (and our good customers).

Once our members join - they stay, enjoying a significant boost in traffic to their sites and the subsequent sales that are generated.

Q. What if I see someone cheating on your network?

Report it. It is likely that we have already suspended these accounts before you spot them. But if you see a member who is attempting to cheat, report it to us an we will take immediate action.
