Personal Web Site Promotion

There are active discussions on here asking for people to like or follow on Facebook and Twitter, I thought it might be an idea for members to promote their own websites. If you post your website address and click on two or three other members links and go and look at their site, and if possible like them on Social Network sites - FB, Twitter, Stumble etc.

It will encourage members to promote your site if you say whose site you have visited and what action you have taken to promote their site.

This will help their SEO with Google and providing members reciprocate, it could help us all in promoting our individual sites.

I believe that Google are no longer giving credit for links into a site via a links page, but do put emphasis on links from Social Network sites.

Also, if you have the time and inclination, you could post some comments (positive please!) about the sites visited.

Anyway, here is my site - I will check out any members sites that are listed (at least the first dozen or so!

Great Idea, Tony. I found your site easy to navigate, and liked how you had things set up. Your FAA store integrates wonderfully - it looks so easy to purchase right there on site!!!

My site is http://www.lorettaluglioart.com. i wonder if there is an advantage of having a blog vs. a website? I have gone to each site here and liked/followed. Great site Tony! I will come back here and ad others.

Hi Loretta thanks for the comments. Have liked your site.

As you will have seen, I have a blog as part of my website. I find it keeps the content fresh without having to put too much time in in constantly updating the website. You can also publicise forthcoming events etc,

I created my site so people that meet me in "real life" (art shows,etc) will be able to find me later. I have business cards with the address on it so I am curious to see if I get any sales from FAA through my website.

There are General Forum Discussion posted Directories for...... Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Stumble, Pinterest,

You can put the title into Discussion Search, and find those threads.

EDIT :

" So if you do list your site here, please play the game and take the effort to do something positive to promote the sites that you visit. "

Tony, Basically that is exactly the purpose for those directories which Beth, and others have put together, I believe.

Here's the one Jean put together for Pinterest :

Thanks to everyone who has posted so far and promoted the sites they have visited.

I appreciate the link to the discussions about Twitter, Facebook etc., but this thread is for members to visit other members websites and promote them through these social network sites to help increase the sites search rankings and to introduce them to other possible visitors..

Unless the members who list their own sites here view and like or favourite or Stumble etc. other members sites, nothing will be achieved.

So if you do list your site here, please play the game and take the effort to do something positive to promote the sites that you visit.

Many thanks

Tony

Thanks Barbara!

I tweeted one of your images. :) (loved it!)

Here's the tweet: Here's a sweet image from artist Barbara Griffin:barbara-griffin.artistwebsites.com/featured/road-… via @fineartamerica— Sweetabow (@Sweetabow) May 10, 2013


Unsure if you'll be able to see that embed, but it was the "Road to Duck Pond" pic. :)

I had some time this morning over my coffee, so I picked a few recently posted sites and visited them all!


Philip Sweeck: I like the layout of your site - the stark design is a perfect complement to the photography. I really like your work, it has a certain darkness but it's soft at the same time. I bookmarked your site and will go back to explore more of your images. You have a clear style and I always appreciate that.

Natalie Sweetabow: Nice layout - the blog style works well, but I wish there was more room to show your images! Your work is radiant and joyful and tells me you're a very happy person. I didn't find any bad links or problems in my visit. :)

Zeana Romanova: The black background of your site is a a great showcase for your work. I really like some of the birds! I like your post processing techniques with the photos, too. I found your site easy to get around in, too. You have a wide variety of work!

Loretta Luglio: I like that your images are front and center, and the thumbnail function of that site is really nice! You also have a clear style and I like that you tend to draw from similar, saturated and rich color palettes. It gives a lot of cohesion to your portfolio, which is nice.

Kirsten McCoy: I like the black background and the function of your site - nice to see big images, and they load quickly. Very lovely work, I just adore how gestural and free you are with brushstroke and color. I enjoyed exploring!

Cynthia,

Your work is incredible! I loved going through your site--the imaginary locales are so dreamy. :)

One major problem I noticed, is that you do not state your name anywhere on your site. Knowing your name, if even only your first, would make a more personable impression.

I shared your prayer flag artwork on my FB and liked your page. :)

Thanks for your feedback about my site--it's a thought I had too, I guess I'm still sorting out how I want to balance the talk with the images.

Hello everyone! I am going to make an effort to visit all of your sites and vote on the contest pages as well! I believe Tony Murtagh is correct, this helps each of us get more visibility and pulls our sites and pages to the front of searches if we help each other. Thanks Tony! My Photography Facebook pages is https://www.facebook.com/a1000words and one of my contest pages is at http://fineartamerica.com/contests/national-tv-photo-contest-2.html?tab=vote&artworkid=7404126. I hope you all take the time to Like my Page and Vote for my Contest Page! Vivian

@ Natalie - thanks for your comments and suggestion. My apologies for not noticing until now. I may take your advice and put something about discount codes more prominently.

@Natalie, Thanks! I need to put my name back on - I had a crazy internet stalker a few years back and I removed all my identifying info from the site - I've been meaning to add it back in more prominently - I'll make that a priority. :)

@ Cynthia - I totally understand the fear you'd have--that sounds terrifying, and I'm sorry you had to experience that. Like I said, even just your first name or a pen name gives people another another way to link your art to you in their minds. :)

@ Greg - Just my .02. I hope it helps. :)

Thanks Cynthia, I like your description of "dark and soft at the same time".

Great website you have and amazing imaginative works that are worth revisiting. I love the series of the animals inventively reaching out for the food that's hanging above them, made me smile : ).

This thread started well and received some positive comments but now seems to have died - partly because I have not had much time recently to follow everything up.
This is what I originally posted :" If you post your website address and click on two or three other members links and go and look at their site, and if possible like them on Social Network sites - FB, Twitter, Stumble etc.
It will encourage members to promote your site if you say whose site you have visited and what action you have taken to promote their site.

I believe that Google are no longer giving credit for links into a site via a links page, but do put emphasis on links from Social Network sites.
Also, if you have the time and inclination, you could post some comments (positive please!) about the sites visited.

I have now totally revamped my site and would really appreciate any positive or at least constructive comments. I will visit as many sites as I can and if possible promote them on social media sites

@Randall - checked out your site and you have some wonderful images. Tweeted about site but other social media links dont appear to be working
@ Rosemary - like your website and visited and liked your web page.

Don't forget everyone that this will only work if everyone visits and likes/promotes at least one other site.

This morning I just modify the look of my website.
Having my own servers does help cut the technical communication down :)

This is the new look:
