Who visits HomePokerTourney.com?
Quite obviously - poker players looking for advice on how to host or run a poker tournament. I attract a high
number of inexperienced players looking for advice on rules or buying poker chips and cards. I also attract experienced players looking
for advice on how to build a poker table or upgrade their poker chips. If you are a poker vendor or supplier ... the visitors to my site
are perfectly targeted potential customers!
HomePokerTourney receives a huge percentage of unique visitors from Google and other search engines. I receive almost 1,000
unique visitors per day from Google alone! I also receive a large number of visitors by word-of-mouth through numerous poker forums.
What goods will my visitors purchase?
This site specializes in home poker tournament play. My visitors are not your
typical online poker players who only play over the internet and therefore have no need for poker supplies. The visitors to
this site require chips, cards, table hardware and accessories. In addition, tournament poker requires more chips,
tables, cards and other poker supplies than your typical dealer's choice poker games. Many dealer's choice home games
are limited to five to seven players who are life-long friends who have purchased their poker supplies years ago (but may be
looking to upgrade!). The typical poker tournament has more players, each needing more chips of more
colors! They sit at more tables and require more playing cards and accessories. The customers referred to you from
this site will place larger orders than the typical poker player and are highly likely to be repeat customers.
HomePokerTourney has fantastic Google search results. Imagine this ... someone watches
the World Poker Tour or WSOP and logs on to the internet wanting to find information on how to host a poker tournament
just like on television! What does he do? He goes to Google and types in "how to run a poker tournament"
or "how many poker chips do I need" or "build a poker table" and what happens? HomePokerTourney is
the #1 ranked site! He visits my site and clicks on your banner ad looking for poker supplies!

Placement on the page
Your ad will be placed in the advertising border on the far right, directly above the existing Poker Stars
banner ad. Your ad will not move lower on the page, but might move higher if the advertisers above you cease their ad
campaigns. I have a turnover of one or two advertisers per calendar month but the highest-placed advertisers have been advertising
nonstop on my site since May 2004 and will probably not cease their ad campaigns in the near future. Top placement has been
purchased by the same advertiser since May 2003 and is not available.

months, etc.. Your links may be placed on any number of different pages of your choice.
Each link purchase will consist of three lines of text, Each line is a separate link, meaning that you will receive three
links back to your site! The first line will contain a link that is blue in color. The second line will contain smaller black
text that describes your site or service. The third line contains a url that is green in color. This format will not

as any "review" page that is dedicated to one product or vendor, such as the poker chip review pages or the poker clock
If you are interested in placing a Page Sponsor ad, please contact me with your desired text and
links for all three lines, as well as the HPT pages on which you would like your links to appear.

will be linked to from the main menu on the left side of every page. Yes, that's right ... if you want me to post your
