I’m excited to introduce three sections of our blog where we PROMOTE YOU!
Our mission here at 5 Minutes for Mom is to help moms find the best stuff out there on the Net. And since you, our readers, are busy creating great sites, we want to help spread the word.
It’s FREE – we just ask that you provide a link back to either “5 Minutes for Mom” or one of our stores. For blogs, the link can be a static blogroll link or a button on your sidebar. For websites and stores, we will work out an appropriate location once you contact us.
You can read more about it below, and then just fill out this short comment form to let us know you’re interested. We’ll email you the details. (We’ll always reply within a day or two. If you don’t hear from us, send another message in case the spam filters caught our email to you.)You can find these three sections in the far right column under the ‘Start Here’ heading.
Visit Our Reader’s Blogs will list all your wonderful blogs.
Browse Mom-Run Websites includes content sites, affiliate shopping sites and websites for direct sales consultants and independent sales reps.
Shop at Mom-Owned Stores features Internet stores run by Moms.
It is free to have your site listed in these sections, although we do appreciate it if join our newsletter and provide a link to either ’5 Minutes for Mom’ or one of our stores. When we arrange your listing we can work out an appropriate location on your site for the link. (We ask that the links are not on a links page.)
We also have a Shopping Directory where we list Mom-Owned Stores and major retail stores. We will sometimes also list Mom-Run Affiliate Sites and Shopping Consultants (but we will only be able to list one per company). To be listed in this Shopping Directory, we do ask for a couple of other links. We will make arrangements for links when we set up your listing.
If you would like your site listed in any of these feature listings or directories, simply fill out the comment form below and we’ll arrange it.
On the pages listing the sites, for example, Our Reader’s Christian Mom Blogs we include for each site a:
This could be a picture of anything… you or anything else. It is something to catch people’s attention and get them to click on your blog.
The site name is in a pink heading.
Link with custom anchor text
This type of link is very powerful because it is in the middle of a paragraph that has your keywords on either side of it. Also, it has natural sounding anchor text, which includes your keywords, and is different than just your site name.
A link to a Full Page Interview or Description of your site
For your blog, you can answer some “Interview” questions. And for websites and stores, you can write a full page description of your site in the style of an “Inside Scoop Editorial“. These pages can include photos and links to your whatever pages of your site you wish. This is a great chance to link to several internal pages of your website.
Please feel free to pass on the word to all the moms you know who would like extra promotion for their website or blog.
