one way travel links

I’m trialling adding user-generated content on my sites. But as unmoderated comments can often be a nightmare of spam – I’ve decided to try to limit the content to city descriptions. I think this will help to create a better experience for visitors to my sites.

It’ll also be over great use to webmasters who want to get more one way links to their site as I don’t require a link back form them. Just the effort of creating a few lines of original content.

The rules are the description must be original and at least 100 words. In return I’ll credit the source and add a link to their site. I think this offer of one way links will work for us both and for my audience.

So if you want links form a site that offers Australian hotels, or New Zealand hotels or hotels in Aisa then find a page without text and send me some content.

Oh, and no porn, gambling, pharmaceutical or links to other sites that would bring mine into disrepute.

squidoo

I’m now fiddling with what’s possible on squidoo: http://www.squidoo.com/hotelbuddy/

It’s kind of like what I want to do – build websites using other content but with your own special flavour. It’s great that they’ve already added in the monetising part of the equation so you don;t have to pretend that the site is some personal experiment. Just get on and make some money.

Or you can, like I have done, elect to have the money donated to charity. Great idea. Not sure they’ll make too much off mine though.

Yahoo site explorer

I’ve heard that the Google links: report is unreliable so I’ve been playing with Yahoo site explorer to see who is linking to me:

siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com: www.hotelbuddy.us

siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com : www.hotelbuddy.co.uk

siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com: www.bellhop.com.au

siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com: www.bellhop.co.nz

I think the results are more useful than Google’s equivalent in the webmaster tools beacuse this lets you drill down into the results and also see when a page was last crawled.
