Re:Trying to set up a new website, need comments 9 Years, 3 Months ago  
Thank you all for taking the time to look and leave your comments, what I am hearing is exactly what I wanted, constructive criticisms

I appreciate all of your input, and am going to act on them because they do make sense to me. Some things I cannot change which is the difference between this web building site and GoDaddy. Not as many parameters.

I have the shop links on the front page, perhaps I should also have them one each page.

There doesn't seem to be a Google Analytics option which surprises me. There set up is to be routed through them (Vistaprint) rather then allowing you to set up an id, which I do not like.

Sand, is link referral a third party link to Google Analytics?

Ya'll so sweet

Link referral is something that I found thru Zazzle & is a site designed for the generating of traffic.
I was going to say there's a link on my site, but it's not visible for some reason!?

Here's the link though-

I don't mean to be negative but I would NEVER use this site. A while back link referral was used by way to get higher Google rankings. Google have totally changed their system. Your site could be penalized for JUST using link referrals, especially if they don't relate to your site. You should only have links on relevant sites.

Secondly, the only way to get higher rankings at the moment is to have changing content on your site. This is why blogging is so big. It's also why forum sites do so well.

I don't want people to waste their time using this, it really won't work. Sorry Sand, I hope I didn't upset you.

I blog regularly and update filckr regularly and have google analytics set up and have registered with various search engines.
When you say I could be penalised for only using link referral what did you mean? I've found the reviews & comments I've received via there quite helpful regarding my site and shop so I'm puzzled as to why they are so bad?
No offence taken I've only started dipping my toes in this water (selling my art online) since february so am trying to learn as I go. Any advice is gratefully received

I now know about stumble upon thanks to Cathy

Google is so smart! Ha! They "penalize" you by dropping your site in their search rankings. Some of these link referral sites don't use quality links......in other words, links to site that have a common interest or theme. You want all of your links to reflect other sites that are complimentary with your site. It was hard for me to learn this in the beginning. I thought why should I link to site that are similar to mine.....I want the buyers....not send them to someone else.....but it works!

If I were you, I would start developing links on my own. Just find sites that are complimentary to yours and ask them to trade links with you.

Good luck. We are here to help if you need it. We always have an opinion!
