What's wrong in put up rather to inserted, sounds similar right? Help me please.

Rahul said: (Dec 18, 2014)  
"an" before "advertisement" is wrong isn't it?

Sakshi said: (Dec 23, 2014)  
"put up" or "inserted". Doesn't it means the same?

Renuka said: (Apr 26, 2015)  
Yes they mean the same. I don't think so there is any wrong in the sentence.

Why published in place of put up?

Ezio said: (Aug 16, 2017)  
Put out would be better as it means to publish.

It should be "The company has put up advertisements in newspapers" right?
