Your ads – on ZU.
We’re happy to have you advertise with us. ZU has several ad locations, each with its own pricing. We offer text ads on the right sidebar, underneath the “Friends” affiliate list, a banner underneath each post, a banner at the top of the temple that rotates between several ad campaigns, a banner underneath the search bar, and banner and text ads within specific news posts. If you’ve thought of another place you’d like to put an image-based ad, and want to see if it’s alright to purchase that ad space, simply tell us where you’d like to place the ad and we’re happy to work with you to get the ad where you want it, within reason.
We will not place ads within our Zelda content pages (such as http://www.zeldauniverse.net/spirit-tracks/ and subpages), so please do not ask about those. Ads on the sidebars and above and below posts and pages will also appear above and below the Zelda content.
In addition, all material supplied must be family-friendly, as children do often visit this site. We will reject advertisers seeking to place links and banners with explicit content. Furthermore, no ad campaigns about ROMs, warez, or any practice of which the legality is disputable are welcome on ZU.
