How do I get listed in Vendora ?

Easy, simply visit our "suggest a site" page HERE. Enter all the relevant details, and submit.

How long will my site take to be reviewed ?

Vendora receives a large number of site suggestions each day, and therefore we cannot guarantee when it will be reviewed, however it is usually within 3 working days.

My site has been rejected, now what ?

Unfortunately, not all sites can be accepted into Vendora, some because they are incomplete, some because their content is not relevant to Vendora or is offensive.

My site has been accepted into another category, why ?

When Vendora reviews sites it may decide that another category is more appropriate. A common error is submitting a commercial/shopping site into a general interest/non-shopping category.
Sometimes the person submitting the site to Vendora wasn't aware of a better category and we assist them in getting the best from their listing.

Where is my listing in Vendora ?

When a site is accepted into Vendora it can take up to 24 hours for the site to re-index and show your listing.

Sites submitted to Vendora are listed in the following order:

1. Those sites that are paying for a priority listing (in descending order)
2. Those sites that are linking to us.
3. Chronologically (date submitted to Vendora)

Based on that criteria you may find that your site is not listed at the top of your chosen category. If you would like priority listing, please see our page on improving your listing using free and paid methods HERE.

What advertising does Vendora offer ?

By default, all listings in Vendora are free.

However, it's well understood that most people looking for a site will click on the top links they see. 

To give site owners the best chance of taking those top spots Vendora works on a Pay Per Click (PPC) basis. That is to say that advertisers can choose where they want to appear in our directory/search results and pay for each visitor we send to their website. 

You can bid for placement in two sections of , the category listings and the search result listings. Category listings are viewed by users navigating our directory structure, search results as the name suggests are the result of using the search box and entering keywords to search for.  Sites are listed in order of bid amount.

More information can be found HERE

How do I create an advertisers account ?

Simple, just follow the link HERE and enter your details. You can get up and running within minutes !

How soon can I start advertising ?

Once you have created your advertisers account ( here ) all you need to do is deposit funds into your account (minimum of £25). That money is used to fund your advertising, being debited each time a visitor is sent to your site (at the price you set).

Category bids and keyword bids ?

You can bid for placement in two sections of Vendora, the category listings and the search result listings. Category listings are viewed by users navigating our directory structure, search results as the name suggests are the result of using the search box and entering keywords to search for.

When do my bids take effect ?

Keyword bids take effect immediately, category bids take effect when the site is reindexed overnight.

Can I be listed in multiple categories ?

Non-paid listing can only appear in one category. Paid listings can appear in multiple categories ONLY if the site is relevant to both categories. To add your site to other categories, login to your advertisers account, view the sites already in your portfolio and select the "add to another category" from the Options link. From there follow the onscreen instructions to select the additional category. 

I have an advertiser account with a sister site..

Vendora / Cheekyminx / UKML and other directories we own share the same advertiser system. For your convenience, if you have sites listed in one or more of those directories you can manage your advertising from a single advertiser login.

What is the minimum bid amount ?

You can bid as little as 5p per click.

What happens when my money runs out ?

When your site is down to the last £5.00, you will receive an E-mail notifying you that your account is nearly empty.

Someone else has bid the same amount as me ?

When two or more advertisers bid on the same category/search-phrase at the same price, Vendora will give priority to the first advertiser to bid that amount.

Bid optimising

When entering a maximum bid for a category or search phrase listing,  Vendora automatically adjusts the actual cost per clickthru to no more than 1p more than the competitor bidding less than you, and no more than your maximum bid.

For example, if you're maximum bid for phrase "WIDGET" is 10p and the 2nd highest bid for that phrase is 5p, then your actual bid cost will be 6p.  This means that you don't need to continuously update your bids to be one more than your competitors, saving you time and money.

What about clicks from outside the UK ?

Vendora only charges for UK clicks. Simple !

What about fraudulent clicks ?

Vendora employs various methods to prevent click fraud. For security reasons we cannot disclose the steps we take. In the unlikely even that you think you are being incorrectly billed for clicks, report it immediately HERE

Do you run an affiliate scheme ?

Vendora operates a comprehensive affiliate scheme, with various rewards for people who link to us. Full information can be found HERE.
