Advertisements in radio are also for very short period of time.Also information given is very less. In television, advertisements need to be paid.Amount paid depends upon time the advertisement is shown.

For e.g. if you are looking for pastry, you just have to click on title given as "food". Then the data regarding food will be displayed. You can choose from there "pastry".Then information regarding different restaurants or food stores will be displayed from where you can choose from which shop you need to buy pastry.
