How can you be sure that paying $60 gets you in the top five for a certain county? What if 20 people in that county pay $60? I am sure this has been discussed but I couldn't find it. Same goes for guaranteed being on the first page?

How about letting us know what county you are in?

I am in San Diego county. Last year, I decided to pay up for the top spot. It was not available. I received the following email response:
I am sorry but all the top 5 positions for the county(ies) you wanted have already
been sold. We sell a 6-15 position, and it is available. A 6-15 position means
that your listing will come up from 6th through 15th when a search for your county
is made. This insures that your listing is always on the first page of listings
that are displayed as only 20 are shown on each page. (In addition, if a top 5
position comes available, your listing is automatically moved up to it at no extra
charge for the remainder of your listing term).

If you desire to purchase this 6-15 position, please pay the below invoice within
15 days.

Positions will be activated when payment is received.
I paid the reduced fee and signed up for the lower position. I have been getting hits! Definitely worth what I paid.

We only sell 5 top 5 positions. If you order something that is not available you will get the opportunity to purchase the best available positions for the counties you order.

Oh OK, I was just asking before signing up. I do Duval, St. Johns, Clay, Alachua and Monroe in Florida.
