Advertising and link exchanges
Big-Boards.com is the largest and most relevant directory related to online communities and more particularly message boards and forums. We receive over 7000 unique visitors daily, generating more than 30000 page views. Our traffic mostly consists in people looking for active message boards they could join to discuss a specific or more general topic, as well as forum administrators either interested in their statistics and board evolution (when they are listed) or interested in learning by example how to grow their online community, or finding out the appropriate software for their needs.
We are both interested in link exchanges and advertising on our pages. The most simple packages are described below, if none of them meets your needs please feel free to contact us for a custom quote.
We accept payments through PayPal, and only PayPal.
We are interested in exchanging links with you if:
If your site fits these requirements, please use the keywords form below if you want to exchange links for specific keyword-related pages, or use the contact form for any other placement, specifying your website URL, where you would like the link to your site to be on big-boards, and where the link to big-boards will be on your site.
- Your site has good and unique content. We do not exchange links with template, turnkey or cookie cutter sites.
- Your site is related to the page you want to exchange links with. If your site deals with online communities / forums, most ad placements are available, if it is focussed on another topic, you may only exchange links with the pages associated with a related keyword. See the keywords section for more details.
If your site is not directly related to big-boards, there are good chances that it is related to one or more keywords from our directory structure. Each listing in big-boards is associated with one or several keywords from our directory. It is possible for you to get a text ad on some or all the pages related to one or several given keywords (as long as they are related to your site's content. This is great for two reasons:
The pricing for keyword campaigns depends on which, and how many pages are associated with this keyword on our site. The form below allows you to get a quote depending on the keywords you are interested in.
- Since this is targetted text ads advertising, the visitors to these pages are more likely to visit your site and be interested in its contents
- It is proven that search engines give more importance to a link to your site when it comes from a related page, which will be the case for all links generated by such a campaign.
- If you would rather have your link only shown in the directory or on specific board pages, please contact us for a custom quote.
- Boards keep being added to our directory on a daily basis and price is indexed on the number of pages on which your link will be displayed. By purchasing a link for several months, you save not only because of the discount we make for longer purchases, but also because the price is likely to increase.
The partners area is present on all pages of the site. We only accept new sites in the partners area through link exchanges. To become a partner you need a site that is related, has a similar page rank, a similar number of pages indexed in google, and to link to our site from every page of yours. Please use the contact form to discuss partnering.
