Volvotips offers all information, service manuals and parts catalogs of all classic Volvo cars and youngtimers like the 940 and 850. It takes a lot of work to collect all information, scan images, publish the service & repair manuals and verify all information. Especially when you realize I’m doing it all alone. But it’s a hobby for me and I think it’s really fun to do: I want to share all my knowledge and all information I have of the older Volvo models with the world. I’ve been a Volvo-fan all my life and I want to share all that I know about these cars with the world for free!
Fortunately I’ve got full support of Volvo Car Corporation and Volvo Cars Heritage: Volvotips has been given exclusive permission to publish all service manuals, part catalogs, brochures and all other documentation and publications that Volvo has produced in the past.
There’s still a lot of work to be done: I want Volvotips to be the biggest and most complete Volvo-site on the web. All information, details, history and background info of the older Volvo-models must be found on this website. At this time about 30% of all information is online, so 70% must be published in the next year.
The reason why I’m offering an advertising-program is pretty simple: since Volvotips uses a lot of traffic and runs on a pretty expensive server I need to cover the costs of running this website. With the huge amount of data this site consumes per month and the growth this site will make next years these running costs will increase a lot. That’s why I need an extra income to cover these costs. I’m using some rotating ads now, but it simply doesn’t cover these costs at all.
Volvotips ranks at the top of search engines and attracts visitors that are looking for the right information of their car:
- looking for the model history and development of a Volvo (including exclusive pictures of prototypes)
- tutorials and how-to guides for fixing small things on a Volvo
- service & repair manuals for the Volvo they own
- parts catalogs for the parts they need for their Volvo
- all background information of certain Volvo models

The advertisement should be supplied by the advertiser. Just mail it to me and I will add it on the website. The right size for the advertisment which you want to have can be found below.
The top banner advertisement has a image size of 728 x 90 pixels and will be placed just below the navigation menu. The biggest benefit of this advertisement is its position: the visitor will see this advertisement right away! And since the banner is the biggest size it will be noticed very quickly.
The top banner will be rotated with 2 other banners.
See the image below how the top banner is positioned. Click on the image for a larger version.
Right sidebar banner
This banner is shown at all pages and will be best seen when a visitor is reading an article. The bannersize is 200 x 48 pixels. The biggest benefit of this banner is that the reader will see it while he’s reading an article or using the online service manuals. And of course: it’s cheaper than the top banner.
There’s also a bigger size sidebar banner available: 200 x 96 pixels.
