Eternal truths:

The Chipdir welcomes advertisers as it is a way to keep the site free for the visitors.
The visitors have never complained about the Chipdir carrying advertisements and some see it as extra information. Some may filter the ad's out, but those aren't usually the people which make good potential clients anyway.

It took a while to determine the right price per adview and currently it's about $0.002 upto $0.01 per adview (also called $2 to $10 CPM), depending on amount, specialization, work to put it in etc. The standard price is $0.005 for a minimum of $100 per month. This is the price for an ad at the top. At the bottom they cost 50% and half-way the pages 25%.
