Where will my links be placed?
Your links will be placed on our own websites (or
those of our partners, if you order partner inventory)
which best fit the criteria you choose.
When will my links be placed?
It typically takes less than 3 business days to place
an ad purchase. The delay accounts for approvals and
setup. However, all billing begins only once your
ad is accepted by the webmaster and approved to go
go live within the following 24 hours.
How long before some search engines see my
Since Text Link Brokerage no longer sells direct
text links on a network of websites, it is doubtful
that the larger search engines will index your site
as a result of buying most advertising. However, there
are numerous options available to get indexed quickly
and thoroughly. Our customers focus on generating
leads and sales rather than search rankings. Although,
all of our customers do see a nice boost in search
rankings that occur as a "natural result"
of quality advertising.
Some search engines can take between 1 and 3 months
before they "see" and publicly show links.
Some links will be faster, some will be slower, all
depending on the search engines' schedules of spidering
the sites carrying your ads.
How long do changes I make in my URL or anchor
text take to go live?
You can make changes to the outbound URL and anchor
text for your links in the client control panel at
any time. Due to some users attempting to sneak adult-oriented
ads into mainstream categories, all changes require
the approval of an administrator. This process is
generally done within 24 hours, and your changes take
effect on the sites at that time.
Why do I have to buy 3 months in advance
instead of one?
Setting a 3-month minimum gives a fair guage of whether
or not a campaign is paying off. Therefore we have
set this timeframe as the reasonable expectation of
results. This gives you a reasonable timeframe to
see the results of your campaign, at which point you
can decide whether to continue your ads, purchase
more, or evaluate why the ads are not helping you
Why don't you tell me what sites I will be
Due to the potential "spam" nature of Text
Link Brokerage's previous method of selling text link
ads, customers would not know where their links would
place. It really surprises us that people would pay
sight unseen, but it does happen.
At any rate, the "new" Text Link Brokers
does not engage in any questionable forms of advertising,
and we focus on quality advertising that generates
leads and sales. All customers will always know in
advance where there ads will place.
Can you guarantee me a PageRank of...?
Update: Buying PageRank is a very
bad, long term business strategy.
Experience has shown that inbound links (IBLs) from
sites with a favorable PageRank can improve the PageRank
and search result position of your own site. However,
it's impossible to guarantee that your website will
receive a specific PageRank, or that it will appear
in a specific spot in search results, as a result
of your new text link ads. Each search engine has
a different algorithm for determining search results,
and you will do better in some engines than you will
