Ad Wizard Step 3
When placing your ad online, please allow an hour for it to show up in search results.
When placing your ad to run in the Printed Edition(s), the ad needs to be submitted before 3:00 pm on Thursday in order to be printed in the following Thursday's book.
All ads from both Printed Editions are included in the search results after 8:00 am on the day the book comes out for all Paid Subscribers.
All ads are subject to review by our editing staff. Any ads selected to run in the Printed Edition(s) are subject to the criteria for that edition.
All Premium Ads are reviewed by our editing staff prior to going live on the site.
Bold Book Ad
In Step 3 of Create an Ad you will have the option of running your ad in Bold in the Printed Edition(s). This will allow the ad to stand out from the other ads and is a requirement for certain categories such as Rentals or Services. Ads with a URL require the Bold feature for the Printed Edition(s). The cost is 1 credit per 2 words to run your ad with this feature. Bold ads are used to indicate Non Private Party ads in our Printed Editions. A final determination of whether Bold is needed is made by our Printed Edition editing staff once the ad is submitted.
This feature is only for ads in either of our Printed Editions.
