The Website showcaves.com provides free information. We are not affiliated with any company or any listed cave or mine. We are not financed by any institution. We are not payed for the work we do. We are a small group of cave enthusiasts wo collect info and write up descriptions.
However, the webspace is not for free, and it is financed solely by the owner of the domain and site, Jochen Duckeck, for more than 10 years now. When he discovered the possibilities of Google AdSense, he first decided to add the search box feature and created an account. However, as a try he also started to place banners on the pages. He was not convinced, as former banner schemes never worked. But the result was very good, and allowed him to pay the website completely with the ads revenue. So he decided to leave it that way.
If you are not interested in GoogleAds Banners, there are simple ways to deactivate them. But be aware, they help to pay the server-rent, and there are really good ads which fit the topic of the website.
Sometimes people ask us to place ads on this website. The management of single ads is a lot of work, especially as the website is maintained manually. We also do not want to make compromises with the layout of our website. So if you want to place ads on showcaves.com, please do so by using AdWords. Google allows you to place ads on certain websites, special pages, or generally on pages with certain keywords. And you may choose the price you are willing to pay.
