It is a recommended website for new players who want to gain an insight into the sport and players just looking for more information about the sport. The author, David King, has supplied information and graphics to many of the dart books that have been published in recent years.

I have tried to make advertising easier, and I hope that there is something here that will fit all budgets. I can offer page graphic links in the form of a pre-set header and footer banners: text links, and unique full-page article pages to all potential advertisers. There should be something here that will fit your requirements.


Header and Footer Banners

Page banners are becoming more popular with some marketers, and indeed they are popular on Darts501.com. As of July 2021, the page banner offer is changing. The homepage header/ navigation and footer banner links become one offering. As every marketer knows, the homepage is always the premium placement, and like internet searches, we cannot all be No.1. Therefore, I will now be offering individual pages header and footer pages. So, if you are unfortunate not to secure the home page, you might be lucky enough to pick up one of the other popular pages, and there are many of them across this website.

Clients that purchase a placement will automatically have the first refusal to renew, and this can be done at any time while your advert is live.


Mobile Navigation

When the website is viewable on some tablets, and smartphones the top page navigation ribbon is reduced to a mobile icon activation menu. This makes navigation easier for small devices. The displayed header advert also disappears. However, it reappears at the base of the open mobile navigation list. So you could say it is relocated when viewed on tablets and smartphones. This gives the best impact on your logo banner.

Your link from the header and footer advert can first link to an internal webpage which automatically passes the link to your website. I offer this two-stage action is to prevent adblockers not displaying your graphics link. When graphics are used as external links, adblockers can identify them as adverts when in some cases they are not. Hence to say this is an easy and effective workaround. Please indicate your preference when ordering.


Article pages

The most common request is a complete article page with links to your website or client's website.

I can create a complete new article page for you using your text. Articles should be a minimum of 600 words, and there is no stipulation on the external links you may have.

Article posts have their unique page optimised to your spec, containing DO FOLLOW & DO INDEX meta code. Unless you specify differently, links are not marked sponsored unless you request this to be the case. The pages also have a unique meta description to explain your page and meta keywords to help direct page landing for search requests.

The article is linked via the website's news section, and once published, a NEW sitemap.xml is created and submitted to my server and Google for page indexing. In addition, a Google page inspection and request to the index are also made. A screenshot of this process is taken showing this process has been followed and supplied to you.

Article page remains on the website for 12-months from the date of publication. You can renew this for a further 12-months at any time during its publication period. After the advertising term has finished, the article and link are removed from the website and server.


You can supply support graphics, or I will create graphics FOC to support your article.


Text Links

I accept text anchor links on most pages. However, you may not be the only external link on these pages. The exception is the homepage and paid article pages that an outreach marketer may have supplied. I do not add additional links to the marketer's supplied pages or the homepage.


Darts501.mobi is a stand-alone mobile website. The new Darts501.com supersedes this site. However, the dedicated mobile version still has a loyal following of users and is now well established. It is designed for smartphone use; however, it works across tablets and PCs. Darts501.mobi contains a dart leg scorer and checkouts sheets, a shortened version of nicknames and walk-on's, a dart checkout chart and a World Champions list. The Mini Darts501 in your pocket!

Responsible bookmakers sponsor most of the professional darts watched on TV and via the internet. The nature of the sport and football, cricket, horse racing, F1, rugby, and other competitive sports could not function without their sponsorship.
