Charter Boat Advertising
Why Pay for an Ad on FloridaGoFishing.com when I can get free or low cost ad's elsewhere? The #1 reason is we have a target audience who trusts our resources. Because we charge a realistic price for our ad's, there are not 1,000 charter ad's on our site. Too many choices can be confusing for potential customers. If the customer sees fewer ads, they are more apt to make a quick decision and pick one. If you are the first to advertise for your area, you will be on top of the list, increasing your chances of booking the charter. Less is more in this case. Get a big discount on advertising when you purchase a Directory Ad and a Display Ad Combo pack. Click to open the Charter Boat Directory page to view it live.
Your ad pays for itself after only 1 booking!

"No Follow" Links
In 2012 Google has cracked down on the policy of Link Exchange Programs due to widespread abuse. Google ranks websites based on "natural links" and paid-ad's obviously are not natural. We suggest all advertisers make their paid ad's "No Follow" which is easily done by us adding simple code to the link to your site. We will not do this unless you request it, so let us know if you want your links this way.
