The Proactive Approach to Attracting Visitors

Greetings,

You are receiving this email because you have a website listed in OurChurch.Com's search engine. If you'd like to unsubscribe see the instructions at the bottom. You can view this message on the web with color and graphics in our newsletter archives.

Please post comments and questions concerning this newsletter in our forums.

IN THIS ISSUE
1) The Proactive Approach to Attracting Visitors
2) Christian Search Engine Registration Specials
3) Why Pay for Christian Search Registration?
4) OCC Forums = More Visitors to Your Site

1) THE PROACTIVE APPROACH TO ATTRACTING VISITORS
If you'd like more visitors to your site consider this bit of wisdom: if you keep doing what you're already doing, you're going to keep getting what you're already getting. If you want to attract new visitors to your website, you're going to have to be proactive and try something new.

OurChurch.Com's advertising auction is a great way to try something new with very little risk. We've reduced our rates and reduced our minimum purchase limit in an effort to encourage people who have never tried website advertising to give it a try. A three-month sponsorship that will bring 15,000+ visitors and normally costs $900 starts at just $300. Blocks of banner advertising that will bring 1,000-2,000 visitors and normally cost $250 start at just $100. Auction ends July 21. Check it out today!

2) CHRISTIAN SEARCH ENGINE REGISTRATION SPECIALS
We have extended the two special offers on our new Christian Search Engine Registration service through the end of July. With our Christian Search Engine Registration Service, we will register your website with more than 50 Christian search engines and directories for only $60. Here are the special offers:

- Purchase our Guaranteed Top Search Ranking service and receive our Christian Search Engine Registration service absolutely free. That's a $60 savings.

- Purchase our new Christian Search Engine Registration service and receive our Basic Search Engine Registration service absolutely free. That's a $50 savings.

3) WHY PAY FOR CHRISTIAN SEARCH REGISTRATION?
After introducing our new Christian Search Registration service, some webmasters have asked, "If registration in Christian serch engines is free, why should I pay OCC to do it?" There are three reasons in particular.

First, it might take 10 to 20 hours for a webmaster to research all the Christian search engines online, figure out how to register, and fill out the registration forms. We can save you all that time and effort.

Second, if you try to do it yourself, you will probably miss some important Christian search engines. Allowing OurChurch.Com to do the registration insures that your site gets submitted to all of them.

Third, if you try to do it yourself, you may fill out some forms incorrectly or miss some other required steps, which would result in your site not getting listed in some search engines. With our experience and expertise we make sure your site gets submitted correctly.

If you have a question about our Christian Search Registration service, please submit it to our help desk. If not, what are you waiting for? Take advantage of one of the two Christian Search Registration specials mentioned above.

4) OCC FORUMS = MORE TRAFFIC TO YOUR SITE
Last month OurChurch.Com relauched its Christian Forums and Chat. We want to build it into a great resource for Christian webmasters who want to improve their site and attract new visitors. We encourage you to visit regularly and post your questions and insight.

In addition to being a great informational resource, our forums can bring visitors to your site. When you post an informative message, include a link to your site at the bottom. Don't make your posts self-promoting, but if you demonstrate competence in your messages people will be interested in what you put on your site.

Thanks for using OurChurch.Com's search engine and for listing your site. Please post comments and questions concerning this newsletter in our forums.

In His Service,
OurChurch.Com

"Like it or not, the keywords and phrases you select to describe your site within your body text can make or break your listings in the search engines. Itís a sad fact that most [websites] are targeting the wrong keywords and losing traffic as a result."

Search Tip o' the Month

While ranking high in the big search engines is important, having your site listed in smaller search engines that target your niche of the web such as Christian search engines can bring many new visitors as well.
OurChurch.Com's search newsletter is sent 6 times a year to everyone who has an active listing in OurChurch.Com's search engine. We consider it essential that we keep everyone with a listing informed. If you do not wish to receive the search newsletter you may delete your listing from the search engine. To do that, go to http://www.ourchurch.com and search for your listing. Then click the delete icon next to it.

If you've forgotten about your username, password, or the sites listed in OCC's search engine, you can Request a Report and that information will be emailed to you automatically.
