Placement location of advertising in the Newlsetter is based on the earliest subscription date. For example if Newsletter advertising is placed on pages 2-7, the new advertiser will have placement on page 8. If a new ad is placed for a sponsored link, that ad will pe placed in the right column of the Topic page requested below all earlier placements. When a higher placed advertiser does not renew, all following advertisements will move up one place. Advertisers who have the top Sponsored link position will receive the first opportunity to obtain the Top Spot Ad location on that page if the previous Top Spot advertiser does not renew.

The image of the website is businesslike, respecting the intelligence of the visitor who is seriously looking for battery, fuel cell, photovoltaic information and applications. Quality treatment of the visitor is intended to maximize the visit and promote return visits. The advertising format, both in size and shape, provides each visitor with maximum quality awareness of the business and product and/or service, thus enhancing the image of the advertiser. Easy access to the advertiser's website is made by clicking on the artwork. It is strongly suggested that the artwork include some directive, i.e, "Click here for more information," so the visitor can easily be transferred to the advertiser's website by clicking on the Ad.
Who Should Advertise with BD?
The construction of the content is focused toward the interests of the business professional. This emphasis generally attracts upper management people from the President, CEO and General Manager categories. These people are in the battery, fuel cell, and photovoltaics businesses, but are also in related businesses which are affected by the topic materials, such as the electronics business, battery oprated product businesses, portable electronic device businesses, the automotive businesses, related government agencies, regulatory people and venture capitalists. Advertisers can take advantage of the presence in BD with these high level professionals.
The readership has been much stronger since both the web content and Newsletter are offered at no cost and involve no complex procedures to obtain the issues or access. Readers are reminded that the Newsletter and Website are made possible by advertisers. Therefore, organizations which want to have a positive presence with the professional readers and visitors of BD can enhance their image to this audience with advertising presence.
BD is prepared with a sound business, liteary and scientific background, with major attempts to limit journalistic editorializing. This reporting of news rather than the massaging of news gives readers a accurate basis upon which to build true knowledge of fields reported. BD advertisers support such independent news reporting as an extension of the honest principles which they consider important. BD does not support the positions of special interest groups, businesses which allow unsafe practices or legal organizations which threaten lawsuits to stifle information and safety. Organizations which support such a position should advertise in BD.
Who should NOT advertise with BD
Freeloaders, Knockoff Suppliers, Terrorists, Bankruptcy specialists, Child molesters, Suppliers without live customer service.

It is a statement of support for free press and open communications which are the first line of defense against unsafe practices and illegal business operations.
