FAQs

What am I supposed to do with this site?

This site provides a list of places where you can promote your site and/or products and services for free. You can browse the listings alphabetically or by category.

Can I really advertise in all of these places?

All of the sites listed have free places to promote your web site. You may have to look closely for the link. Some sites, however, limit the types of ads that can be placed, such as sites about collectibles or sites about cars. However, about 60-75% of all the sites listed will probably be useful to you. PLEASE FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON EACH SITE. We offer this list as a service, so please do not abuse the list.Please do not "spam" anyone's site and do not post websites or ads that are not relevant.

There are so many places listed here! What's the best way to tackle this list?

Grandpa suggests going through the entire list once and bookmarking all the sites that look promising. Some sites, particularly classified sites, only keep your listing or ad up for a limited period of time. You will need to resubmit when your ad expires. Keep all your standard information (URL, email, description, etc.) in a small text file so you don't have to retype everything at each site--just copy and paste from your text file. Grandpa updates the list with new sites about every month, so make sure to check back often to see new places you can promote your site. If you don't have enough time to submit to 10,000 sites, you can use our ADVERTISING SERVICES which will submit your site to search engines, directories, and free for alls for as little as $14.95.

Why are there still sites that are not found?

Websites come and go so fast, it's impossible to make sure every link is good. We do run a link checker on our site every month and remove the bad links that it detects. Sometimes the link checker doesn't catch all the bad links (if the page is redirected, for example), and sometimes even new links go bad within a day. 80 - 90% of the links are usually good.

How did my site get on this list?

We scour the internet looking for sites to add to this list. We also get emails from people who suggest sites to put on this list. If for some reason, you do not want your site to appear on this list, email support@ecki.com and let us know.

My site used to be listed as a free place to advertise, but now it's not. What happened to it?

If for some reason our link checker returns a file not found, the link is removed. Or if the link checker can't get to the site for three months (because of a slow server or bad DNS), the link is removed. If your site was down but is now working again, please email support@ecki.com and let us know.

Why do you do this?

Grandpa believes that providing a list of free places to advertise is a way to help small businesses grow on the Internet.
