Free Movement is now accepting advertising. Placing adverts is handled through an ad agency, buysellads.com and an advertising pack for those interested in placing adverts is available for download:


The decision to accept advertising one is due to a combination of factors. One is that some development work on the blog will be needed in the autumn, which requires real actual money. Another is that Free Movement is more than a hobby these days and absorbs rather a lot of real actual time. Time is money, as they say, and ideally I’d like to be able to recruit an assistant, which would improve the blog’s coverage of immigration law issues. Another is that there are a lot of real actual readers these days, as you can see from the chart for the advertising pack. At 155,000 page views for July 2014 Free Movement is probably one of the most popular legal blogs in the UK, and as a specialist blog may be an attractive proposition to advertisers, which may avoid the need for alternative means of generating funding.

The alternative to advertising is a “leaky paywall”, which I came this close to implementing about a year ago. A certain number of page views would be free, after which payment would be required. That remains an option if advertising does not work out.

If interested in placing an advertisement, click on the ad space in the sidebar or visit the Free Movement page on buysellads.com. I’m happy to answer queries but do not want to have to handle payments, keeping track of taking ads down at the end of a fixed period and all that, which is why I’ve elected to use an agency.

  1. I don’t see any real actual ads though. Actually, on one of my other favourite websites they have a neat feature called “adblock”, which you can pay for. But it is really dependant on there being ads in the first place.
