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!

Re: Advertise your website on eslHQ for FREE!!!
 
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.

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.

Mr. E English Aug 8th, 2006 01:31 am

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:

Re: Advertise your website on eslHQ for FREE!!!
 
I received 768 from eslHQ and 142 from mes-english's topsites. These two sites are my biggest referrers (after the search engines).
Thanks guys!

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.:)

I've only just found this site, but I think it's great and I'm going to link to it from mine. There's a wealth of really nice stuff and every teacher should know about it. I don't know how long you've been going, but I wish it had been here thirty years ago ;)

Eric Oct 10th, 2006 06:08 pm

Thanks, Sue! :)
I wish I had been on the web 30 years ago, too.

Re: Advertise your website on eslHQ for FREE!!!
 
I was away for a while creating my song packages and writing a teachers guide to one of my CDs and my hits dropped right down again.
Since starting up with ESLhq they are beginning to climb again.

Can anyone here tell me what sort of software I would use that well track where my hits are coming from so I know how many are directly from ESLhq as opposed to those coming from a search engine such as Google etc.

Also it would be nice to be able to see how many actual downloads of my songs are happening, Is there something that could also tell me that information.
I really would appreciate any help in this area.
Thanks

I use software called "phpmyvisits" It's really easy to use and it gives you all kinds of stats about your website. btw, it's free!

Hi Eric,

I've just discovered ESLHQ and was delighted to see a space for advertising new sites as I've just set up my own. However, I've tried posting a message on the 'Advertise your site' thread 3 separate times and it hasn't appeared. Can you tell me why this might be?

Cheers,

I can't give you monthly figures yet because I've only had a counter on for a couple of weeks, but I'm certainly getting a lot of visitors from here. Thank you!

One thing, which may be my imagination, but I wonder if anyone else has noticed? It's seemed to me for a while that not all my posts were being counted. For instance, I might do three or four at once, then see my count had only gone up by two. I suspected the time difference at first - maybe I was posting just as the figures for the day changed. But today it clicked that it seems to happen when I use the quick reply rather than the "advanced" box. Does that seem feasible, or is it just my lousy maths? Which is a definite possibility .... :o

mesmark Dec 13th, 2006 05:12 pm

Re: Advertise your website on eslHQ for FREE!!!
 
I think it's working right. I use both quick reply and reply and have no problems.

The stats roll over daily and it could be that you posted at the roll over time. So you lost stats from 7 days ago (2) but got today's (4) or something like that.

Hi Sue,

Actually when you use Quick Reply the page doesn't get reloaded, therefore the post count on your ad doesn't get updated. If you reload/refresh the page after you make your Quick Reply your post count should update.

Also, if you usually post at a certain time of the day, everyday, then you might actually be posting a new post at the same time as a post from 7 days ago is dropping from your count.

So after you make a QR, refresh the page or go to a different page and see if your count is updated. If you find that it is not updating, please let me know and I will take a look at the code.

Lastly, there are some forums that aren't eligible for being counted in your post content. Those forums are the Advertise your Services forum and all the forums under ESL Worksheets that link to the worksheet maker but the category ESL Worksheets does count towards your count.

Eric

Re: Advertise your website on eslHQ for FREE!!!
 
Hi Eric and Mark,
Yes, I think that explains it. In fact I noticed last night that when I came in later, a post that hadn't been counted immediately had been added. So I think it's mainly the refresh thing. Plus possibly the occasional coincidence of posting at rollover time.
Thanks!
Sue

I found a little error in the post incentive code. It was preventing login and other core functions on the site... :(

I hope it's fixed. Please let me know if you have any problems

Actually the problem was caused because during the holiday season there was such little posting that my script hadn't taken that into consideration. it should be fixed for good but you never know...
