Successful Twice, Missing the Mark This Time|
From Rob at Western Gecko Gifts
on 2 Oct '00
I've been successful in the past promoting sites but this time my promotion tricks don't seem to work.
I avoided using frontdoor pages because I had a domain banned recently from altavista so this time I'm trying backdoor pages. Basically, they're like the frontdoor pages but rather than the pages linking to the homepage, the homepage links to them via a small hidden menu. The spiders visit the homepage, see the links, then list all the pages which then have links back to the homepage.
I also had to use the backdoor pages because Western Gecko Gifts is completely cgi driven with all its pages produced on the fly in order to accomodate its own search engine (the big search engine spiders only like hard links).
Has anyone tried this technique before? Am I shooting myself in the foot? The hidden menu is at the bottom of the page (http://www.westerngecko.com/home.html) on both sides of the copyright info.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
