EPage® runs classified ad and auction services for over 28,000
affiliated Web sites comprising the EPage Network. Many of these
sites are quite large and have a good number of visitors. Ads placed
on the EPage service are treated as either "local" or
"network" depending on the options a user chooses when they
post their ad. EPage uses the AdConnect.com
service to distribute network ads to affiliated sites. In association
with AdConnect, EPage users can have their ads posted to the network
for 50 cents per week..
An EPage affiliate site can support categories that are created by
the site owner (custom categories), or pre-defined categories (shared
categories) that are supplied by EPage, or a combination of both. Custom
categories are only displayed on the affiliate's site. Most affiliate
sites have chosen to display some or all of the EPage shared categories.
For sites with custom categories, EPage has done its best to "map"
those categories to its shared categories. When a custom category has
been mapped, network ads posted in the custom category are also displayed
in the shared category it is mapped to. Some affiliate sites have opted
to not have their categories mapped, and therefore all of their content
is private to their site.
ads are only displayed on the affiliated site from which they were placed,
even if they are placed in a shared category or a mapped custom category.
Network ads will be shown on all AdConnect member sites displaying the
shared category that the ad was either posted in, or mapped to.
