Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by this site. I want to ask a favor of everyone who comes to this site .. for the next few weeks I want everyone who has not done this already to check it out. This post that I did on our Las Vegas Business Site is about art. Everyone who knows me knows how much we are into art and how much we love to photograph everything we see.

Take a couple minutes and go to the links in this post for me. I would appreciate everyone who checks this out for me. The links in the post will lead you to a site that has some of the coolest photography that we have ever seen. They really have a way with art.

Their site is well maintained and the styles of art that they are selling are fantastic. We are getting a portrait done by them and should have it very soon. I will post some pictures here when we receive the portrait. It was really easy and you don’t have to buy your own portrait if you don’t want to but please check out the links that are in my post to their site.

We never ask much of our readers so do this for us please. Thanks everyone!

Bloggers get ready for the launch of the new directory. We are getting the code soon and we will be putting it up with our fingers crossed that nothing happens to the information we have in there already. So don’t kill me if we have to submit all over again. I will back everything up in the system and make sure I have everyones individual information for sponsored links in the directory BEFORE anything is done.

Thanks for being so patient with the new directory but hopefully when the new code is installed no one will have a problem with submitting their site and we can finally move on to bigger and better things.

Everyone is anxious to get the advertisers going and finding bloggers that they want todo business with. We have a bunch of bloggers already ready to go like horses out of the gate. Anxious as we are we don’t want to lose any information so this is going to be a carefully planned and executed move to the new php links code that we are going to use. The upgrade is supposed to fix all of the bugs with submission so we will see how this goes.

Again thanks everyone for being so patient … we want this just as bad as you do! I the meantime in between time .. feel free to get a free blog on us. Just go to the Blog site and click the FREE BLOG link at the top.

So we decided that the sales for bloggers and advertisers was just taking too long and we wanted to make the deal a little sweater for the advertisers.

That said …

We want you to get the most out of the bloggers that we have available for you to advertise with. If you have a website then you know how important exposure is for your site. You want to drive as many people to your site as you can in the shortest amount of time possible. For a limited time we are going to offer you the chance to deal directly with the bloggers. Go to the directory and find the bloggers that you like the most. They are waiting for you and very ready to do business with you. You will find descriptions of the blogs so that you can make an educated discussion about the kind of writing styles and links that you will be having the bloggers review for you.

There are so many different writing styles that we are confident that you will find one or sixty that you would like to have blog about your website.

Some people are asking what this does for their website ranking. Well that is simple. The more incoming links you have from high ranking sites that have relevant content to your site the higher and more popular you become. It’s like college. You join a fraternity or sorority to make friends and life long connections to ensure your personal future. This is the same basic concept. Make your friends help you out by making you the most popular kid on the block.

Head over to the directory and find yourself a new friend. The more friends you have the more popular you become. Contact them and be sure to let your new friends know that you found them from Link The Planet. If you want to take the easy road and let us find your new friends … just let us know .. that is what we are here for .. !!

Where do you see your sites standings in the war against Search Engines?

Every website store owner would like to see their site placing on the #1 position of all of the search engines. The most popular search engine is Yahoo and Google at a close second. Believe it or not .. it is true. Having your website seen by those that are looking for your products or services is important to the success of any online business.

Is your website worthy of a Positive Review?

I bet that your site is the best website you have ever seen. The layout is great and the products are the best thing since sliced bread. Understandingly each website owner should have the same answer to this question. They had this great online store built and payed a lot of money for their website and to have an online presence. Perhaps you built the site yourself and spent countless hours and late nights perfecting the look and inputing all the information. Keeping this in mind, a positive review may be in order, but is it necessary?

Is a Neutral Review of your website going to effect your sites rankings in a Positive or Negative way?

Either way you look at linking … your site is gaining a link from somewhere that is talking about your business and the practices of the business. If you business gains exposure from the online medium then you are gaining exposure period. A link is a link whether neutral, negative or positive writing follows. A neutral review of your site will probably contain more relevant terms than a negative post and will increase the readers will to want to read more and usually will increase good traffic to your site.

Will a Negative Review effect your ranking and or indexing in a Negative way?

In most cases yes, this is true. If a reader sees that something negative has been written about your business and your website store they will usually be hesitant about doing business with your company. However there is a catch 22 … Have you ever heard of the Radio Morning Show called Howard Stern? Why did his listeners who heard negative reviews and made negative statements make up over 50% of his daily listeners? They wanted to see what he would say next. Why where his listeners that made up the other half so intently listening and become huge fans of the show …. they wanted to see what he would say next.

No matter how you call it … a review of your site and your business will effect rankings depending on the linking that is involved. If you work backwards you must first figure out what you want to achieve. Top placement? Okay, what do you need for this? Good linking, many external links driving indexing spiders into your site. Popularity, how many of those links are from relevant sites! Traffic, lots and lots of traffic. From everywhere, anywhere, and keep them on your site clicking and shopping.
