Missing an opportunity
« on: May 19, 2008, 09:26:04 PM »
I have been informed that if websites have links to each other this helps with your google/yahoo rankings etc. I was just looking at the members list & only a few have put up their website details, so if you have a site you might want to update it so that it will help your ranking.
If you have a links page on your site please add balloon chat to help us out as well.
You never know who may be looking at the site & they may need a twister so to have a link to your website may even get you some work :)

Hey Graham,
Next job on my list before getting on with the birds is web site.  I will be sure to make a link.  I like this site by the way.   Yes I am a total creep.   :D

What about making a temp site as I mentioned before, just a few pictures & number will be helpful for you. It could be up & working in a few hours?
I'm glad you like the forum, I had one of those moments earlier tonight that are very thought provoking in a good way. Will tell you more when I see you next.

Hi all.
Graham is right about the links. I should know I was the one that told him.
Looking around the forum I don’t see a lot of web addresses on the profile or the post.
Just having your web address on a post is a must if you won’t Google to start placing your page higher in a search. The Googlebot searches forums as well as web pages for links and any information that will help the searcher with there enquiry.
Another thing that helps is linking to other sites and having them link back to you.
I understand this can be awkward as you don’t won’t to send people to another twisters site., but I have noticed a few face painters in the forum that are just starting out, maybe link to them and have them link back to you. It’s give and take when it comes to the almighty search engine. It’s not all about keywords.
