How You Can Help This Website Become Even Better - For Free!

(1/4) > >>

I had a PM recently from a member asking about what code he can use on his website to link to RUA. One of the things I am working on at the moment is getting more links and banners out in the webosphere, so I thought I would put this information out to all.

If you run a blog or a website or know someone that does, or participate in any social networking sites, newsgroups, forums, etc., a text link (or a banner if a webmaster) pointing to this website would be really appreciated.  It will help more people find the site and also improve our rankings in internet search engines.

If you post on other forums, the occasional topic related text link in a post, or signature link, has a similar effect. (Note: Some competing RW related forums will delete our links, but visa and most other forums probably wont, as long as you follow their rules about such things and don't overdo it)

In this post I will give some basic pointers (without tech jargon) about code for websites, and code for other forums, in a way you can just copy and paste as and when you want to.

Banners - This is our 468x60 standard banner:

To place this on your website or blog, you would use this code:

--- Code: ---<!-- Begin RUAdventures.com Banner Code-->
<p align="center">
<a href=http://ruadventures.com target="_blank">
<img border="1" src="http://www.ladagirl.com/banners/RUAchickbanner.gif"
style="border: 1 solid #000000" alt="The Leading Russian Women Information Forum" align="center" width="468" height="60">
<font face="Arial" size="1">The Leading Russian Women Information Forum</font> </a> </p> <!-- End RUAdventures.com Banner Code-->

--- End code ---

Text Links:

Text links have more value when they are used with contextual words, like this: Russian Women Information Forum - To make a live link like that on a website, blog or anywhere you can use HTML, you would use this code:

--- Code: ---<a href="http://ruadventures.com" target="blank">Russian Women Information Forum</a>

--- End code ---

On a forum post, you would use this code:

--- Code: ---[url=http://ruadventures.com]Russian Women Information Forum[/url]

--- End code ---

It doesn't have to be a Russian women related site where you put our link, as long as you are allowed to do it wherever you do it, it's not terribly important - Google sees all links. The more incoming links Google sees on other websites, blogs and forums, the more "credibility" it sees this site as having, so we rise in the search engines, and ultimately get more members. And we all benefit from that! (So yes, even one on ObamaRocks.com would help)

Blog & News Site Readers

If you ever comment on blog posts or news items on the internet, there is often a space to insert a URL. If you insert our full URL .........

--- Code: ---http://ruadventures.com

--- End code ---

.....in the box provided when you are replying, that will often create another link to this site. See the picture below for clarification.

All these small things to get RUA links out there will take you just moments while you are on your internet travels, and not cost you a dime. But, if enough people do it occasionally, it will be of great benefit to this site over the long term. It will help to bring us more members and make the forum a more vibrant and interesting community.


If you are a webmaster who wants to do something with reciprocal links, three way links or work with us in some other mutually beneficial way for SEO purposes, please contact me by PM or by e-mail at forumadmin@[this web site]. We have many sites/pages/blogs, etc. (on various topics) that are PR3 and above that can be utilized for this purpose. It need not be this site you link to.

Any Other Ideas?

As with anything, I am open to any new ideas that will increase our inbound links and/or popularity.  ;D

Manny, do you know which I'd use for the "Wordpress" blog software?

I think the html code, like so:

--- Code: ---<a href="http://ruadventures.com/forum/index.php?topic=2257.0" target="blank">Learn Russian Language With Mendeleyev</a>

--- End code ---

Would show up like Learn Russian Language With Mendeleyev on a wordpress blog - if thats wrong, somebody will correct me.

Thanks, I'll try it.

Just to clarify that Mendy, on the latest version of wordpress I am using, which I think is 2.7.1, you flick to "html" and not "visual" when typing a post and use the code above.

You can also highlight the text you want to use as a link, click the complete chain link symbol above, and a window will pop up where you past in the URL you want to use. You also get an option if it opens in a new browser window or not.
