Our site has been referenced by numerous popular newspapers like the New York Times & The San Francisco Chronicle along with being referenced by other popular consumer destinations like HGTV. If you have any media inqueries you can contact us at .gro.rotaluclacegagtrom@ofni

On our blog we have interviewed many influential voices in personal finance over the years, however we do not respond to guest post requests or requests to sell links. Those types of emails are immediately flagged as spam and discarded.


Currently we use Google AdSense as our ad server. If you advertise on Google AdWords you can use their placement targeting option to advertise on our site and other sites in the Google network.

Use the contact form below if you would like to advertise directly with us. Please note that we require a minimum ad buy of $5,000 in any direct media deal. We are also rather exclusive with which ads we will carry. We have placed relevancy first & have avoided things that tend to annoy users like "punch the monkey" ads, in-text hover ads, and various forms of automated pop ups, auto-playing videos and the like.

Our site has been successful & growing in popularity for a decade in large part because we put user experience first. We give users the options to turn ads off on our homepage. No page on our site has more than a couple ad units & some sections have 1 or 0 ads. For example, due to the limited screen size of mobile devices we do not show display ads on the m. version of our homepage. We only show a rate table on that page which we feel adds value to the user experience. That rate table is also shown at the bottom of the page to put the calculator front and center.

If you are an ad network which wants to partner with us, we recommend first testing your ads through AdSense or other certified third party networks which are partnered with Google to verify performance and use that as a baseline. We require upfront payments to test any new ad networks, as it doesn't make sense for us to take all the risk, especially if these other networks are confident of their performance potential.
