You may have noticed that there are ads again visible on the site. (Members with Wings, as one of the perks of the program, continue to see the site free of outside advertisement.) We thought we'd run a quick review for you of what those ads and affiliate/partners mean in terms of revenue. We use several sources for our advertisements, and are in the process of seeking out ads that reflect the language which the site is viewed, so that if you view the site in German, or Spanish or Dutch, the ads will hopefully appear in those languages, eventually. Some of our ad placement services give credit for impressions (i.e. just for hosting the ad), others give credit for click-through to their site from ours only and still others for a mix of impressions and clicks. The partners and affiliates listed here generally only give BookCrossing credit for purchases clicked through from the BookCrossing site to their site, and it can be as high as 10% of your purchase there. If you're thinking of making a purchase from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's Books, BetterWorld, AbeBooks, or Chapters , please consider using one of the links directly from this page to give 5-10% back to BookCrossing. As always, thank you so much for your support.
