Once your initial Deposit, aka Account Balance, runs out.

So this way you do not need to manually monitor your Advertising Account Balance to make sure your Ads do not go off-line due to your Account Balance hitting Zero.

11 My purchase of Advertising on Anoox was rejected. Why and what can I do?
Your purchase of Advertising on Anoox Network can be rejected on 3 main grounds:
  • We do not have enough Traffic for the Advertising that you have submitted. In which case you will be informed of this fact and given opportunity to modify your Advertising submission: by improving your Ad details, Ad Keywords, Ad Targeting, etc..
  • Your Advertising and/or your Site does not meet with our Editorial standards, in which case generally it is not possible for your Advertising to be accepted. In such rare cases we give you one opportunity to write to us and explain why you think your Advertising should be accepted.
  • We have reached the maxim number of new Advertisers/Ads we can accept for the Day, or Week or Month. We need to have such a limit since as a small non-profit Search engine & Social network we have limited resources to work with, so once we reach a certain number of new Ads for a given period, to ensure that we are giving best Traffic to current Advertisers, we need to pause to process pending Ads before we can accept more. NOTE: as current Advertisers you are exempt from this limitation
12 Why is my Country not listed in list of Countries I can target my Ads to?
We list a country in the Country based Ad targeting list when we have Minimum of 100,000 views per Month from that country. If you still want to Advertise, then you should select "World Wide" as the target of your Ads. But just make sure that your Ads have a Global appeal, such as you are a Hotel appealing to World Wide tourists, offering Software for sale, Web Site hosting, etc. etc. and not a business with local appeal only.
