Website links, ect in your Signature blocks

Postby Philsuma » Tue Mar 01, 2011 9:32 pm

Including your personal website or business website in your signature block will be permitted on Dart Den.com, provided it is relevant to the Dart Frog Hobby.This is an excellent way to advertise and promote your website.

I would ask that if you decide to have a website link in your signature, that you please include the code below somewhere on your website as well as a hard hyperlink to Dart Den.com. Cross promotion absolutely works, but it needs to be done fairly, as I’m sure you'll agree.

If you do not use the code, please AT LEAST post a link to Dart Den.com in the links page or somewhere on your site.

Code: Select all

Hard links in signature or profile pages to personal websites and Facebook pages, and that's ok......IF:

1. It is Dart Frog related

and

2. You "give back" - either with the code above in your website, or at least hard-linking back to DD from your site. If you have a small store front, one-page site that does not easily allow for a link ect, that's ok and understandable. I'm talking about the bigger 3-4 page sites.

I have taken the liberty of trying to "juice" some people that have businesses ect, pertaining to the hobby by adding their website link to their profile and signature here on Dart Den.

If I've overstepped my bounds and this is not acceptable, I apologize -please PM me and it shall not happen again.

If you like the help and exposure here....please pay it back to the site somehow.

Thanks everyone !

Signature Blocks, traditionally - throughout all manner of bulletin boards, forums ect, that I've been a member of or seen, have been used strictly for catchy little sayings, quotes and in our particular hobby niche case - numbers and species of dart frogs kept.

Other than the above posts that deal with allowing Business links - which I'm currently ok with, as long as people 'give back' and link here to DD.

"Signatures / Signature Lines – Examples of appropriate signatures would be quotations, amounts and species of frogs kept. Pictures, animated gifs, enlarged text, advertisements, and for sale, trade or wanted item advertisements are not permitted to be included in any Signature line(s). No religious or political references will be allowed in Signature lines. No announcements or personal statements are permitted in Signature Lines. Dart Den owner(s) and Administration reserves the right to remove any signature from any account for any reason.
