1. Petsearcha.com is run as a family business, we our selves love animals and have had a vast experience of cats, dogs, birds, horses and many other animals. We therefore understand the problems involved in advertising to find homes for animals.
2. Petsearcha.com has excellent ratings on the major search engines, we are currently listed No1 for the UK on Lycos, Excite, UK Plus, No2 on Yahoo, Altavista and Google.com. We also have top 10 listings on many other lesser search engines and directories.
3. The website has been searched on the internet to attract a specific type of visitor. Our search terms are "pets for sale", "dogs for sale" and "cats for sale" etc... searching simply for "pets", "dogs" and "cats" would obviously produce many more visitors to the site. However, we currently have 5000+ visitors a month to this site, all of whom are searching for pets or animals FOR SALE! Petsearcha.com can offer you access to people specifically interested in buying animals, as oppossed to general classified magazines and websites which attract visitors and readers interested in all types of purchases.
4. All credit/debit card payments made online to Petsearcha.com are processed by Worldpay plc (part of Natwest Bank plc), (see Security Statement from Worldpay plc), a guaranteed secure server. At no time, whatsoever, does Petsearcha.com have access to your card details.
5. Should the animals which you have for sale change during the time your advert appears on Petsearcha.com, e-mail email@example.com and we will be pleased to ammend your advertisement - including photographs at no extra charge.
6. Many people are cautious of advertising their pets/animals on the internet. The system operated by Petsearcha.com is exactly the same as any magazine, the prospective buyer will contact you by telephone, and you can then assess their suitability to purchase as normal.
7. An advertisement on Petsearcha.com wil give up to 60 words for £10.00, (£15.00 plus photo) and will be on-line for 60 days. Users will find it virtually impossible to place an advertisement of 60 words in any magazine or newspaper for £10 a week let alone 60 days.
8. Many breeders of pets and animals now have their own website, however, very few can be found on the internet. It is one thing to have a website designed, but the price paid very rarely includes submission to search engines. A website on the internet is of no value whatsoever unless it is searched. Petsearcha.com will include a free link to your personal website at no additional cost thus, due to its high search ratings, driving traffic to your site.
9. When your pet/animals have been sold, let us know and we will place a banner stating sold on your advert.
10. Latest statistics state that 36% of the adult population in the UK is connected to the internet, and that there are currently 8 million people buying on-line. With 5,000 visitors per month on Petsearcha.com, this would mean that around 3,000 people visiting the site would be prepared to answer your advertisement.
