Over the years I have stumbled across various free website promotion systems on the internet. To my way of thinking. Almost any link to your site is a positive thing. As a result its in your interests to create as many links to your website as possible.

You may not see the immediate benefit of joining all these promotion services. Some of the services may be a complete waste of time. But like everything on the internet. Its a numbers game.

The more people that join the service, (over time) the more hits will be eventually generated. So the services that are desirable are the services that have been around for awhile.

Be diverse in the type of service that you promote yourself under. Don’t stick all your ‘eggs’ in one basket. What looks like a large company may dissapear tomorrow. This is the nature of the untamed internet.

Moderators dont like spam sites or links. I personally DO NOT allow spam sites on my lists. I think many other webmasters feel the same way. So avoid sounding and appearing to spammy.

Real Website Worth?

What is your website actually worth? There are numerous services available on the internet for determining the value of a domain or website.

In my opinion, beauty (or value) is in the eye of the beholder. Its hard to undervalue a good domain name. What value to place on a (soon to be) "Brand" that will be catchy enough to stay in the publics awareness?

Anyway, I found what I think is a pretty good service for checking a domains value. Located at realwebsiteworth.com. Webmasters can obtain a FREE widget to display their (or anyone elses..) domain statistics.

Lazerzap.Com

Twitter.Com

I may not agree with the monetary "value" that they place on the domain name or website. But the widget certainly displays some interesting information about the domain being currently referenced.

Probably worthwhile enough to make a Blog entry about.. (*wink) Just look at the comparison from above (lazerzap.com) and left (twitter.com). Lazerzap.Com doesnt compare with Twitter.Com very well.

*sigh Maybe one day.. (hehehe)
So we can use this widget to compare websites? Hmmmm.. So how does Twitter.Com compare to Facebook.Com? (Yes lets turn this Blog entry into "the old Facebook Vs Twitter thing again"..)

Well.. See for yourself...

Facebook is (currently) beating up on Twitter.. Ohh.. (Poor little birdie..)

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

This is all Wikipedia (currently) says about website promotion:

“Website promotion is the continuing process to promote a website to bring more visitors to the website. Many techniques such as web content development, search engine optimization (also known as SEO), and search engine submission, are used increase the traffic to a site.”

Well obviously they havn’t heard of Top 100 lists. Otherwise known as Top Sites lists.

The idea is that a webmaster will find an interesting list and join it. A small percentage (depending on the webmasters promotion of the link) of visitors to that webmasters site will click the link to the Top sites list.

A ‘vote’ for that referring website results at the Top sites list.

The visitor is then shown the Top Sites Ranking. Where they may (and do) click on other (related subject?) websites that are also members of the list.

And so the circle continues. To the benefit of all. Webmasters and Visitors.

There are many many many of these lists already running. I think you will find that most subjects are already covered. Just do a search for Top 100 and your subject. If not. You will most likely find a site where you can setup your own list on any subject you desire. (a damn good stategy)

When looking for a decent Top Sites list to join.. Because there are so many to choose from.. Look for an active webmaster.. (ie: Not just the standard Top Sites Layout) Also look at how many hits per day/week/month the site is generating for its members. (The better Top site lists provide this information)

Warning: Dont join lists that have websites you really dont want to be associated with. For example. If your a strictly G rated site. Try and join G rated lists. If your adult rated. Do us all a favour and stick to your adult rated lists. The search engines and other bots etc. can and do make assumptions based on this data.

Also as a warning. Making a page just for your Top 100 links is a bad idea in my opinion. The reason being.. Incoming visitors to your site are presented with a confusing page that only seems to consist of (animated?) Top 100 links? (Too easy to hit the back button and pick another site methinks..)

Plus if a visitor wants to vote for your site. They have to find the page. Find a link they like the look of.. It’s really off putting. Much better to have your ‘voting’ links on a select few ‘interesting’ pages.. or Sidebar perhaps.. Footer?

As a webmaster, if your internet image is important to you. I suggest that you do not make this mistake. Even though it seems to make perfect sense to just stick all your voting links on one page. I dont recomend that you do it. :)

Here are some pointers to signing up for a Top sites list:

Have a banner for your site available. Banners can be as simple or complex as you wish. (Note: You may need to resize it to accomodate the Top sites list you selected)

Dont forget to install your voting code onto your website! Otherwise you may get a short term benefit from random hits. But most Top sites systems will automatically flag your site as inactive and eventually lock you out.

Well I hope this posting has prompted a few webmasters into action. For those that get involved.. Have fun joining and setting up the code for your new Top Sites Website Promotion! To the others I say.. Better luck next time. :)
