In This Issue:
We'd like to congratulate Village Street Bed and Breakfast 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.
We've been mentioning Link Popularity for years now. Link Popularity (how many site pages on the Internet link INTO your site) is the most heavily weighted element of the major search engines. They see links INTO your site as "votes" for your site. All things equal...the site with the higher Link Popularity goes on top.
We maintain a listing of accommodation directories that our lodging and accommodation clients may visit periodically and register their sites. Though the focus of this list is toward accommodations, the fact is if one were to click around a bit after getting to the directory you would find an appropriate place to register just about any site.
One shortcoming of the list (for clients checking the list often) was discerning which directories were added since their last visit. We've now added a script that will (hopefully) keep track of your visits and show a "NEW" icon next to any directory added since your last visit. Of course your first visit will most likely show all the directories as being new.
Anyone may visit our Directory List by clicking on the link in the footer of our homepage.
Recently, we've been receiving a number of queries about how to interpret the data provided in the eight reports we provide to our clients through eXTReMe Tracking (your site's hit counter). If you're interested in how these reports may help you make sound business decisions about your site, we've provided an informational article for you. It may be accessed through the link on our homepage under the "Helpful & Informational Articles" section or by clicking HERE.
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.
