There are now 2 Sponsored Ad boxes at the bottom of the search results page and 1 on top.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In line with our objective of providing more transaction opportunities for our sellers,  we’re replacing  Premium Listing with our brand new feature, Sponsored Ads.

The Sponsored Ads feature works by displaying your ad in one of the 3 Sponsored Ads boxes laid out together with the search results page when a user searches for a particular keyword/category. There will be 2 slots on the upper corner and 1 slot on the lower corner of the search results page.



 

In contrast to Premium Listing  where the ad’s exposure is dependent on its number of ‘times exposure’, the exposure of the ads displayed in our Sponsored Ads boxes will rely on the “bid” placed by the seller as well as other factors.

The frequency of your ad to be displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes depends on your ad’s relevance score, your bid amount, the duration you set for the bid, your ad’s recency and the number of ads competing for that particular category.

To get you started, follow these easy steps:

 1.       While signed in, click through the ‘Manage Ads’ menu to be redirected to your list of active classified ads.

 

 2.       Select the ad that you want to be displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes and click ‘Boost using SG’

3. Select ‘Customized Exposure Package’.

4. Under the ‘Sponsored Ads’ section, select the duration of your bid to determine how long you want your ads will be displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes. Indicate the amount of SG that you want to bid for that particular number of days.

5. Make sure you read and agree to the Sulit Gold Terms and Conditions by marking the check box at the bottom part of the form. Click Submit once you’re done.

Again, our Premium Listing feature has been replaced by the Sponsored Ads.

 

FAQ:

 

What will happen to my ads that have been applied with the Premium Listing feature?

If you have applied Premium Listing on your ads on or before January 23, 2013, the equivalent amount of SG used in those ads will be converted as bids in the Sponsored Ads boxes following the duration that you’ve availed for that particular ad.

You will also receive the pro-rated amount of SG that you have used in availing Premium Listing.

If you haven’t received your refund yet, you may send us an e-mail at support@sulit.com.ph.

 

How much Sulit Gold (SG) is required to avail the Sponsored Ads feature?

The minimum amount of Sulit Gold required to place a bid in the Sponsored Ads box is 20 SG per day.

However, please note that different keywords and categories may require a minimum bid higher than 20 SG depending on the number of ads competing for that keyword/category and the average amount of bid placed by the owners of those ads.

There is no limit in the maximum amount of bid your ad can place for a keyword/category.

 

Will I have an idea how much Sulit Gold (SG) to bid in order to secure my ad’s placement in the Sponsored Ads boxes?

Before you can place a bid, the system will suggest the minimum amount of SG that you can bid to assure your ad’s chances of being displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes. 

If you place a higher bid than the suggested amount, you get a higher chance of getting displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes. On the other hand, placing a bid lower than the suggested amount by the system lessens your chance of getting your ad featured.

How long can I place a bid for a particular keyword/category?

You may place a bid for a particular keyword/category up to the last day of your ad’s lifetime.

However, if your ad’s total lifetime exceeds 90 days, you may only place a bid for a maximum of 90 days. Please note that the total amount of bid you placed will be divided by the duration you set, this will determine your daily bid amount.

Example:

Ad’s current lifetime: 60 days

Amount of bid placed: 1800 SG

Duration: 60 days

Daily bid amount: 30 SG

 

What are the factors that the system considers in order for it to display ads in the Sponsored Ads boxes?

The system considers the ad’s relevance score, its recency and the amount of bid placed with the ad.

Placing a very high bid for a particular ad doesn’t guarantee that the ad will automatically be displayed in the Sponsored Ads boxes. The bid is just one of the factors being weighed in by the system when displaying ads. The ad’s relevance score determines how the ad fares well with the category it belongs to and the keywords that it possesses. You may check your ad relevance score by accessing the ‘Search Ranking Analysis’ section of your ad.

The ad’s recency is determined by its posting date.

The bid is the amount you put in, which may be higher or lower than the suggested amount by the system depending on your preference.
