Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you allow for text link advertisements? – Currently no, sorry. Results from testing shows that image or display based advertising is more successful on a picture heavy site such as MariasMenu.
  • Do you provide advertising prices per month? – We have seen advertisers get more bang for their buck with CPM (Cost Per Thousand/Mille) and PPC (Pay Per Click). If you would like to opt for PPC or monthly rates, please contact us.
  • Do you provide RSS feed advertising? – Over the last couple of years, we have noticed a decline in RSS feed usage, so it didn't make sense to focus on RSS feed advertising. We recommend you opt for our weekly Newsletter Sponsorship that reaches close to 18,000 email subscribers.
  • Do you accept cheques? – Sorry, we do not have the facility to accept cheques. However, credit card payment processing can be done through PayPal – the world's most trusted merchant processing platform. They accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and others…
  • Do you have any specs for the advertisements? – Yes and we also retain the right to remove any that do not meet the following requirements: family-friendly, little or no animation and links to any illegal websites. Ad image formats supported include: gif, jpg, jpeg & png.
  • Do you do sponsored articles? – We have tried this in the past and realized it's not what our readers appreciate. We also have to turn down requests for guest blogging, sorry.
  • Do you have a limit on the number of ads sold? – In order to provide readers with a better user experience, maintain our independence from advertisers and reduce costs to all concerned, we have our ad space managed by Google Adsense / Google DFP and BuySellAds ad server technology. We realized that too many ads distract our readers and too many competing ads gave less exposure and ROI to our advertisers, so we're limiting the number of ads being served on this site.
  • Can you issue me an invoice? – Yes, sure. Please contact us and we'll be happy to provide one as per your requirements.
