    Question On the Monster website OR In the Monster website... Please, which one is correct?

    I am going to e-mail to someone and I would like to know which sentence is correct...

    ...on the Monster website...

    OR

    ...in the Monster website...

    I always used in the knowing these roles:

    I see your advertisement in the Monster website...

    I see your advertisement on Internet...

    I see your advertisement in the Guardian newspaper...


    But, recently, I have seen an English person to write on the Monster website...

    So my question... which one is correct?

    HI son, I would have chosen on too, one sees something on a page. However, you get more that a millon g-hits on in a website.

    Sorry, I misread, so you would use in? Well, on gets definately more hits:

    Resultados 1 - 10 de aproximadamente 5.540.000 de "on a website.

    NO, it is not, the "your" or "the" should not be there.

    ..On your website / on the website

    Me too..!!!

    I was so focused on the on/in problem that I completely forgot one of the few English rules - never put the definite article (the) before possessive adjective (my, your, etc.).

    Sorry... and thank you to both. Very much appreciated!
