These adverts are only displayed when people
search Google for key words you decide or on webpages that contain your
keywords ... which can also be geographical ... i.e. only displayed in Asia
or a specific country.
If you are looking for alternative ways of advertising your school, product
or services then I would highly recommend you also considered using Google
Adwords .... this enables you to have simple text adverts that link to
your own website.
You can set up your own Google Adwords scheme
automatically online in only a few minutes .... and the important part
is that you can stipulate your maximum monthly spending .. so you have
full control of your budget.
Shambles does display adverts from the Google
(Adwords Scheme) and you will often see adverts from international schools
and education-related services appear in these spaces ..... the boxes in
the top right .... of most pages ... the low cost is very affordable.
for Commercial Companies
Shambles has allowed commercial companies and organisations to list
on Shambles for free for the eight years prior to 2010 providing
that they are relevant to our visitors who are mainly focused on
In May 2010 that policy has been changed so that single entries
from primarily commercial companies/organisations will only be accepted
providing a minimum US$50 donation has been made to Shambles.
(using the PayPal donation button on the right) ....
or the website is providing free resources or services to the education
Criteria still means that only websites that have relevance to the
education community will be accepted ... so if your website is not
relevant then it will not be approved anyway (as previously) ...
so please do not make the donation.
You can establish relevance if you can find an area in Shambles
that your entry would fit in to (see above)
Others ... if your donation has not been made then your submission
will just be deleted while still in the approval queue.
Receipts will not be provided for donations less than US$200
Entries placed on the Shambles website will
remain for a minimum of one year ... in practice they will probably
be a lot longer (some have been displayed since 2002 providing still
current, appropriate and relevant) but will move down the list as
new entries are made.
Shambles gets between 10,000 and 20,000
unique visitors a day and is ranked highly in the popular search
I'm sorry that I am probably not able to enter into any conversation
about this ... because of time restraints and the minimum donation
required being small.
