On the "Search Content" page type in a keyword in the search box and click on the search button.  A list of content that contains the keyword in its title and/or description will be displayed.


4. What if I cannot find what I am looking for ?

We rely on the providers of online content to add their download links to our directory.  If you cannot find their product here then they probably haven't heard of us or have decided not to add download links of their products on our website.  Tell them about us !


5. Are the downloads free ?

The advertiser will show in their listing if the download is free,  free to try first  or  if you should pay for the download. 


6. How do I add my own content ?

To add your own content follow these 3 simple steps:
6.1 Before you can add a listing you must be a registered user and choose a username and password.
6.2 Choose ADD CONTENT from the menu to add your own link(s).
6.3 Then choose ADD LISTING to activate your content and display it on our portal.


7.  How much does it cost to add a listing / file on the directory ?

Content can be added for free - OR - you can choose a fixed daily rate at which to sponsor the listing.  Sponsored listings are given better exposure on the directory and you will receive more visits to your website.  To add your content and list it for free simply choose a daily rate of $zero when adding your listing and provide a download link.  There is a minimum charge of $15 for all listings with a daily rate greater than $0.  If you choose to upload a file then you'll be charged a small storage fee per MB of file size per day, in addition to the optional fixed daily rate.


8. How do I add my content listing for free ?

Add your content and then choose to add your listing at a daily rate of $zero.

9.  Why use a daily rate ?

The daily rate will determine how your content is displayed.  Content with higher daily rates are displayed first in the search result.


10.  What about click fraud ?

Unlike some other search engines, you do not pay us for users that click on the links you add to our directory.  There are no opportunity for click fraud from competitors fraudulently clicking through on your listing.  For a fixed daily rate you can receive unlimited click-throughs at no extra charge.


11. Can I update my content and listings ?

Yes, you can log back in at any time and update the details of your content and terms of your listings.
