About Us

MBlink.it is the fledgling URL shortening/tracking service recently introduced as an added service to existing Mediabids customers.

As a recent addition to our Per-Inquiry Print Advertising program, MBLink.it allows advertisers to place banner ads on publication websites as part of their performance-based ad campaigns. Advertisers and publications will now be able to track the activity and effectiveness of these banner campaigns conveniently from their MediaBids account.


MediaBids.com is the premier marketplace for buying and selling print advertising. Advertisers and publications can interact to buy and sell advertising in a wide-variety of print media (newspapers, magazines, journals, directories, shoppers, newsletters, trade magazines, college newspapers and direct mail) using patented online tools.

How We Started

MediaBids, The Newspaper and Magazine Advertising Marketplace, was founded in Winsted, CT in 1999 to allow print publications to broaden their market reach in a cost effective way while giving advertisers a web-based system to purchase advertising in a competitive environment.

Since its online launch in 2003, MediaBids.com has become the leading online print advertising marketplace, bringing together more than 7,000 publications and 15,000 businesses on its web site. MediaBids' easy-to-use platform has attracted a wide range of users, from small sole proprietorships to large national corporations.

Mission & Vision

MediaBids aims to simplify and streamline the print advertising process by providing a website that both centralizes relevant publication information and provides tools that enable both buyers and sellers of ad space to conduct transactions more efficiently. MediaBids' vision is that with these tools, advertisers will increasingly view newspapers and magazines as a choice medium to promote their products and services - thus allowing newspapers and magazines to continue to be a viable information and social resource for our communities.
