    Default Traffic???????

    Hey people! That's my first posting on this message board. Well...a few weeks ago I started www.PlatiniumCasinos.com. I got a big problem tho...I submited my site to search engines with addme.com and some other FREE sites. I don't get any hits tho . I just wanted to ask the other webmasters:

    :>: How can I get nice traffic to my website

    Also, can you please people visit it and tell me what you like or what you don't like, what I need to add or remove. This will help me so much.

    Thanks a lot, Fatrix

    Default Here....

    Fatrix, this is what I advice :

    1. Reduce the 50KB static banner.
    Everything on your page is quick, but that takes time.
    2. Try and crate an action for the visitor.
    ie : HIGHLIGHT in BOld & Red & Bigger font the "casinos" & "top5"
    3. Similarly, at the end of the text, give a link AGAIN for what to do next.

    Some food for thought ; )

    Hi Fatrix,
    I can't comment on the speed issue because I'm on a cable connection so I don't see those things. Pretty nice site, tho, for a newbie!!

    A tip - It looks like this site is at Geocities free hosting? I know you're interested in joining GPWA, but we don't allow free sites to become private members. Paid sites must be online for 3 months prior to admission.

    Search engine listings can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. You're better off submitting by hand, also.

    Good luck!!

    Thanks, Fatrix

    Mmmmm. If the name of your site is Platinum Casinos (as in the metal) you misspelled your URL when you bought it. PLATINUM is a metal - PLATINIUM is some goofy french word (no offense to the frenchies around here) :LOL:

    Default hosting

    prohosters is in the U.S. Any European webmasters out there who can recommend a hosting solution in Europe, preferably in the Netherlands or U.K.

    Heh....well...I guess I messed up. I thought the metal is spelled Platinium, not Platinum. Well...I am Bulgarian (if you haven't noticed the flag on the left of my postings) and my spelling kinda sucks....but oh well....I will see what I can do with PlatiniumCasinos.com. Anyways....PEACE TO ALL OF YA!!!

    Thanks, Fatrix

    I believe the jscript error on the page is caused by you putting a geocities site within a frame and preventing the geocities mini-frame appearing.

    I'm fairly sure this will be a breach of their T&C, I also think that advertising is not permitted on geocities (or is limited) so you're breaking T&C there as well

    There are some pretty cheap hosts - as low as $10/month, that are good.
