Do’s and Don’ts
General do’s and don’t’s relating to ALL categories.
Keep it family-safe
We like to keep things family safe, so post family-safe content. If your ad has content which you wouldn't be
comfortable viewing at work or with family members present, then it probably isn't appropriate.
Post in the most relevant category and sub-category
Please choose carefully the category and subcategory that fits closely to your ad. People want to search and
find what they’re looking for by browsing within the categories, so posting your ad in the correct category
will increase the chances of your ad being seen and responded to. All categories have a subcategory with
either “Other” or “Miscellaneous” for good and or services that you are sure do not fit with the current category

No duplicate ads
Only 1 ad per item / job / flat / service in one category is allowed. Don’t re-word your ad and post it in multiple
categories. We do not allow duplicate content ads or titles.
Title and Description
Do not put your websites address, phone number or your email address in the title of your ad. Users who do this
will have the ads deleted and will be prevented from using the site. Users can enter this information in the body
text “description” of the ad, as long as it is not considered spam or spammy. Making ads look good is a quality
experience for the Whynotad users and this we consider as beneficial as well as increasing your ads response
No links to other websites
Your ad should contain all of the information and details a reader needs to know, so there’s no need for you to
send them elsewhere to view more information. If you would like to include a single website then we allow this
in the text “description” of the ad, formatted as www.yourwebsite.com
Your ad can:
use as much space as you like
edit your ads at anytime
include contact information
No keyword spam
Users who post ads that we consider spam or spammy or that have lots of irrelevant phrases or words will be
deleted and the user blocked. Whynotad does not allow keyword spammers because it makes searching for and
reading ads very frustrating.
