Do you have a website that members at eslHQ would be interested in? Why not advertise on over 5,000 eslHQ Pages which are indexed by Google?

How Does It Work?
If you are interested in promoting your website on eslHQ.com, all you need to do is make posts in the forums. If you are one of the top 8 forum posters your ad will appear in the left hand column of almost all the pages in the forums and gallery. That's way over 100,000 page views a month!

Your link can contain a short title and a 70 character description of your site.

All values are calculated for a 7 day period on a rolling basis... meaning, if you have made 1 post in the past 7 days, you qualify to be in the top 8 sites listed. If there are 8 or more other forum posters that have more posts than you, your ad will not appear. You will either have to wait or post more.

To Participate
Register & then go to the bottom of your Edit Profile page and fill in the following 3 fields: Website URL, Website Title & Website Description. You must fill these in before your ad will be listed.

It's that simple. Just fill in the fields and post!

UPDATE

I've got some exciting news. I have made some changes to the post incentive program that can help liven up eslHQ's forums and drive more traffic to your site.

There are 2 major changes:
  1. If you start a thread, that will count as 3 posts and not 1. This will encourage more thread creation which will give us all more fresh topics to discuss instead of digging up old threads.
  2. If you acquire 25 or more posts (threads + posts), you can have an image appear for your link instead of a text link ad. I have attached a sample of what that could look like below. This is completely optional and if you don't want an image to appear, don't add the image in your profile. If you do want to use the image option, follow these steps:
    • Go to Edit Profile in your Control Panel.
    • Scroll to the very bottom of that page.
    • Type the Complete URL to your image in the Website Logo field. (Note: Your image should be 250px x 60px. If it's any bigger or smaller it will be shrunken, stretched and distorted. Also, you MUST include http:// for this to work.)
    • Save your profile and your done.

If you notice any weird things going on with the thread or post count, please let me know. It's new code and there may be a few small glitches, but for the most part it's good.

Lastly, I'd love to see some referral stats for the month of August if you don't mind. I'm very curious.

Happy Posting!
Eric

I think your website is fabulous, friendly and so welcoming. The worksheets and advice are great. What a great resource for students and teachers alike. I also think your advertising policy is very unique and generous. Congratulations Eric. I wish you success to you in everything you do.

As key builders of the global village we in ESL have both the honour and privilege to witness the world become smaller and its peoples more united. But with this comes responsibility and respect, understanding and communication are our essential tools.

ESLHQ is one such tool - let us use it wisely and enjoy!

If it helps to encourage anyone to post, here are the numbers I've been seeing from eslHQ

May 500 referals
June 900 referals (new layout by Eric)
July 1000+ (estimated)

Thanks Eric for the great forums and the great service.

The hits to my site have tripled as well thanks to ESL hq. If has really made a difference for me. It is nice to hear of others sharing their successes here on this site.

I encourage others to post here as well.

The ideas are so enlightening and the feeling of community is very valuable to all who seek and share advise and ideas.

Cheers!

I've only just found out about the site but am pretty excited having read these positive comments. As soon as the last courses finish I'll enjoy having a good look round.

From one great site to another - use the link to check out the full and extensive range of ESL materials available on the English E.

Thanks to the wonderful service and system eslHQ has set up so many people can benefit within the ESL community.

Many thanks eslHQ.

The eslHQ has so much to offer and so does The English E.

Flashcards, sentence stems, word prompts, phrasal verbs, word families, crosswords, information exchange cards, topics for speaking fluency...

Making a real contribution to the ESL community.

eslHQ connects so many people - what a great service! As an umbrella site linking to so many other sites eslHQ has to be the best.

EDIT: Please keep site promotion in your signature.

August - - - >>> 1314 ! ! ! :whistle:

That's site wide from eslHQ, off all links to MES-E including those to my topsite (not all come from the posting advertising but they sure do help.) Thanks, Eric. :becky:

Hi Eric

My site's very new and I'm a new member, but since August 1st EslHq has sent me 300 visitors, each and every one of them most appreciated.

I've never bothered with these types of site before but I must say I enjoy sharing ideas with you guys and the resources are great.

I'll stick around if it's okay by you.:)
