Ad Types


TREASURE BOX - Maximum exposure! This section has a click rate about 4 times higher than regular ads. Feature your product on the Front Page, right in front of everyone who visits BHUZ. The Treasure Box also appears after the first post of every thread on every page. Promote a special sale or featured item to over 260,000 viewers every month with a picture linked to your website. Send us a picture up to 275 wide x 200 high pixels. Optional short text underneath.


PICTURE ADS run on most of the thousands of BHUZ.com pages. Ad placement is generated randomly and changes every time a page is refreshed. The top 6 positions on the Forum are reserved for always-on-top placement at an extra charge. All picture ads share a space - usually 2 advertisers per space.


WORD ADS on the Travel or Featured Event Forums - Your events, with detailed information, will be listed on the BHUZ Front Page Forums, with click-thru to your website. To advertise here, create a new thread in these forums and follow the instructions.


RETAIL SWAP MEET FORUM & FRONT PAGE SHOPPING BOX - Stores and commercial vendors can post in the Retail Swap Meet section of the Forum Shopping category. Add your own pictures, links, and descriptions of items for sale. This is a very affordable and effective way to reach your customer. Your post will also appear in the Shopping box on the Home Page of the site.
