Random Free Hosting Site

We'd like to congratulate  for being the winner of this month's free hosting site. At the beginning of each month we will call up our own site's homepage. Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.

Texas Wine Tours

All ya'll in the travel industry that are always asking who you should exchange links with (to increase your site's link popularity) should send a nice short e-mail to tour@texas-wine-tours.com if your site is in the travel/hospitality/accommodations business. We're sure Jim Thompson will be more than glad to exchange links with you and it will be a symbiotic benefit for visitors to both sites.

Not Enough Content

Often, small businesses will put minimal information along with their contact information on their Web site and think that's probably good enough. But today's Web visitors are looking for something more, and lots of good quality content is a great way to deliver value to your visitors and build credibility for your business. Not only that, but the search engines promote sites with more pages over sites with fewer pages. Your site will received a high ranking if it is more authoritative (has more pages) that similar sites.

Old Or Outdated Content

If you want visitors and search engines to pay attention to your Web site, you need to keep adding new content and updating the existing information on your Web site regularly. If your site never changes, the search engines will ignore your site, and visitors will not have a reason to come back. It's also unlikely that visitors will recommend your site to their friends and colleagues.

So your goal should be to periodically add new pages to your site. Each of the pages should have worthy content and be in the range of 500-750 words to gain the most benefit from a review by the major search engines.

New Sites Joining Us Or Completed Recently

Help these folks by visiting their site. All ya'll will remember how hard it is to get those initial "hits" so the search engines notice your site. So take a minute and visit their site.
