Free Basic Listing - Facebook Likes and Friends - Cross Promoting with AusEmade
The internet is a
busy place for many businesses
trying to be found online and it can often be
hard to get your website in front of those potential customers.
There are a
number of options to improve your online presence, not only through your
website, but also through social media.
offering travel and related services for Australia, AusEmade offers a number of
options for partnering with us, starting from our "Free Basic Listing".
Free Basic Listing
Now if you are considering a "free basic listing" with us, there are a few
things to consider.
In order for a web page to rank in the major search engines, among other things, it needs
links pointing to the page. These links are called "backlinks" or "inbound
links". These links should come from two places: other pages on your own website
(called internal linking), and relevant pages on other websites (external
To take advantage of
the benefits of us listing you on AusEmade, you need to ensure that you link to
us, but don't link to any page... you should link to the page on AusEmade that
provides the most benefit to your customers. This is called "deep linking".
For example if you are offering accommodation in Lorne, Victoria, then you
should either link to the Lorne Information page and/or the Great Ocean Road
page on AusEmade. Not only do you provide an additional valuable resource for
visitors to your site, but you get some benefit from the major search engines.
You could even provide an additional link to the very page where we display your listing.
When creating the link, use appropriate and meaningful text with the link. Some

By not providing a link to us you could be squandering a benefit that should improve your ranking on
Whilst we could decline your listing, if your site is something that visitors to
AusEmade would be interested in, we most probably will still link to you.
However, by providing a link back to the relevant section on our site, you will
provide an additional resource for your customers and start building on
improving ranking to your website.
Like you, we are a small business trying to improve our place on the internet.
We believe in supporting small businesses and one of the easiest and least
expensive is by cross linking (a form of free promotion) with each other. So we
hope you will link back to us.
It is becoming rare for a business not to have a Facebook page, in fact some
small businesses operate online only through their Facebook page.
You can now interact with
their Facebook page, by LIKING and SHARING with
us. This provides an additional resource and an important tool for promoting
your online business.
It is also easy to do and takes very little time.
