Why is this service free?
Shopsofmalta.com was created in 2006 as a school development project by a young team of individuals. As time passed, our team's knowledge and experience grew and through the success of Shopsofmalta.com the team individually gained high positioned professional careers within the IT sector in Malta and even abroad. Since Shopsofmalta.com was the mother project that launched the team's careers, the team felt it essential to keep this alive and so a decision was taken to keep on developing Shopsofmalta.com from being a simple link directory to a fully grown website. In 2010 we launched a 'Do It Yourself' approach, thus lessening the amount of work involved from our behlaf to keep the web site active, cost effective yet still challenging to the team. Since Shopsofmalta.com gave alot to the team, in return the team keep it alive with a target to see it grow into one of the leading FREE advertising portals on the Maltese islands. Of course, if you wish to help us then feel free to place a link back to http://www.shopsofmalta.com on your websites at your own will. In turn this will help us help you too!

Since we manually process each listing before it appears and receive reports on any update to listings, this should not occur.
