Posting Rules
At “otradearena.com” we want to make sure that the site is as clean, friendly and usable as possible for everyone. We reserve the right to remove ads without refund where these breach our posting rules and/or terms & conditions. Posters that regularly break our posting rules may find their future use of the site restricted.
No duplicate ads in the same Category;
We only allow 1 ad for a particular item/ job/ flat. Please don’t post the same ad (even if re-worded!) more than once either in the same category or across multiple categories. If there are a few possible areas for your ad then please choose the most relevant. Any duplicate ads will be removed and if you continue to post duplicates we may decide to restrict your access. If you want your ad to appear back up to the top of the listings then remember that you can simply repost it. This also applies to posting the same ad on more than one “otradearena.com” site – please see below.

Post on your local “otradearena.com” ;
Please post on the site geographically closest to you. Ads will only be accepted that are geographically specific and locally relevant. This local community approach is what “otradearena.com” is all about.

Post in the correct category;
Please post in the correct category as it helps both posters in reaching the right audience with their ad and helps the users looking for something to find what they want.

No keyword spamming;
Keyword spamming is the practice of listing lots of often irrelevant phrases or words in an ad purely in an attempt to have a better search ranking (e.g. lots of postcodes or locations). We don’t allow this on “otradearena.com” because it is very frustrating to our users to find irrelevant ads in their search results, it can make ads hard to read and it creates an unlevel playing field.
