What are TextAds?
TextAds are a simple, polite, and inexpensive alternative to banners
and other online advertising. Use them to:
- direct viewers to your website, for selling or informing.
- express appreciation
- honor a respected or loved one by dedicating a message
- display any brief, positive message
How do TextAds work?
A TextAd is inserted into a box on a webpage just like any other content.
Visitors see a small text box with your message, including a web link if
desired. For example:
The text box displays one TextAd at a time, changing with each visit to
the website. You pay for a selected number of impressions – the
number of times your ad is shown to a visitor. Your ad appears in random
order rotation with all other TextAds.
How do TextAds compare to other online advertising?
TextAds provide all of the benefits of other forms of online advertising
without the annoying downsides. There has been a considerable amount of
backlash by users as many online advertisers have resorted to more and
more desperate attempts to capture user's attention. Pop-up ads, Pop-under
ads, full-page ads. These are just a few examples of advertising that many
users find to be intrusive. So much so that several companies have begun
distributing software that lets users block all traditional forms of
advertising. TextAds, by comparison, are small, effective, and most
importantly, respectful of users. They cannot be blocked by ad filtering
software and have proven to be quite successful.
How much to TextAds cost?
TextAds are inexpensive. The cost for 3000
impressions (our minimum) is only $15.00,
which is just five tenths of a penny each time your message is shown to
a visitor to the Archive. This makes buying ads so inexpensive,
practically anyone can run their own ad.

What is PayPal?
PayPal is a popular and secure online payment system used by many online
merchants. When you sign up for PayPal, they will collect your credit
card or checking account information. When you make purchases using
PayPal, PayPal debits your account directly. We do not collect any
credit card or other financial information from you. This provides an
additional layer of security that many users find comforting and is
just one of the reasons PayPal is used by many of the buyers and sellers
