Author Center - Promote Your Software

Promoting Your Software on aFreeGo.com

aFreeGo.com offers a large number of high profile advertising slots throughout the site where you can promote your software at a very reasonable cost.

 

Home Page
The Home Page is the page displayed when visitors visit www.aFreeGo.com.

 

Category Pages
Every high level category (eg Business and Productivity) has its own Category page which is displayed when visitors click on the category in the navigation pane to the left.

 

SubCategory Pages
Every sub-category (eg Business and Productivity / Time and Clock Tools) has its own SubCategory page which is displayed when visitors click on the SubCategory in the navigation pane to the left. These pages are where the high level software listings are displayed. Advertising slots are displayed at the top of every page before the software listings are displayed. This is prime real estate when it comes to advertising, as the Ads are displayed at the top of every page before the visitors scrolls down the listings displayed on that page.

 

 

 

Advertising Slots
On every page that allows advertising, there are a number of different types of advertising slots.

 

Feature Pick
The Feature Pick slots is the prime advertising slot on a page and is generally found near the upper left of the content display area, above the 'fold' and in the visitors attention viewport.

Feature Pick slots are always Targetted (not Shared) - see below for more information on Targetted vs Shared.

 

Premiere Listings
Premiere Listings slots are high profile advertising slots on a page that are generally found either near the upper right of the content display area, or directly below the Feature Pick slot.

There are up to 5 (five) Premiere Listing slots on a page (Note that the Home Page only has three), with the first four being Targetted slots and the last slot on the page being a Shared slot - see below for more information on Targetted vs Shared.

 

 

 

Targetted or Shared ?
We refer to Targetted or Shared listing slots in the descriptions above. Please see the explanations below for the nature of these slots and differences between them.

 

Targetted Ad Slots
Targetted Ad Slots are dedicated to the software that is listed in them for an entire month at a time and are dedicated slots - your software will be the only software in that slot for the entire month.

To be eligible to be displayed in a Shared Premiere Listing slot, your software listing must be compliant with the PAD v4 standard and already listed on aFreeGo.com
