Hi All,

I was just wandering if anybody on the list accepts credit cards in
Canada. What are your experiences, what companies are providing such
service in Canada and how much does it cost. I'm interested in both

Hello Everyone
I know everyone reading this likes to get a something for free.  You
can get a lot of web promotion for free just by doing a little
looking.  Search all the free classified ads that you can.  Of course
post in the adland digest. I have went one step further and purchased
top of page advertsing space on ADland classifieds and have found
great success.  However if you would like to do it the easy way and
post to over 7000 free sites without doing all the searching visit. Next get
yourself listed on the search engines.  You can do this by hand for
free and spend hours upon hours or you can visit and have your URL posted to 350 search
engines free of charge.

Hope these two sites help everyone become more successful

Hi everybody.

David asked in last digest if awards are in any way helping
in  increasing traffic. I don't think results can be easily measured
and I can't say  for sure how effective they are to bring the traffic
to the site.  But there is one thing certain. When you submit
application for award, sponsor of the awarding site has to come and
view  your page, then in case you will become the winner you will be
placed on the winner list. You certainly create some references to
your site and short burst of traffic when site is being reviewed. If
you submit your site for 100 awards, potentially you will get 100
visitors extra in duration of one week. Even if you are not awarded
you will get visit and maybe sell some of your products or services.
Another aspect which not directly contributes to traffic is
recognition of your site by others who are themselves designers,
marketers or experts in other areas so you are being noticed which
might pay off in the future.
Here are few addresses of sites keeping links to  awarding sites.
Some of them are quite automatic like
and some require you to go to each site and manually submit all

Moderator's Comments:
To add to Bogdan's list of sites for Awards you might also check out
the Online Marketing Resource Center at
About half way down the page under under options to promote your site
are several dealing with awards, contexts and sweepstakes.

Also, another note: Just a reminder that you should not email me any
of the ads that you  post on the Adland's Classified site.
There have been several who have sent ads to the list and note that
they will not make it here.
Let's hear from you......
