    I have just recently opened a web site. I really would like some good ideals which might help bring more people to it. It is a christian web site and it offers merchant links to shop and other useful tools. All ideals helpful

    Hi Creation and Welcome! What Dave is talking about is a fued going on with Parasiteware that has been stealing commissions from affilliates and merchants. When you have time you might want to read about it in the Parasite section here at ABW.

    It sounds like you want "ideas" more than "ideals"!

    A Christian website is going to draw people who are already Christians, for the most part, so you shouldn't have to do much selling of "ideals". And if you don't know the Christian ideals, then I'd suggest not positioning your site as a "Christian" site in the first place!

    An IDEA is to sell the kind of Christmas stuff that appeals to those turned off by the high-volume commercialism stores typically offer during this shopping season. Low-key, Bible-themed items may work for that. Also ornaments with angels and such. Stay away from big-brand marketing efforts like Coca-Cola ornaments and other items that are obviously there just to get a piece of the Great Christmas Smorgasbord of Money.

    Another idea is to make sure you have links to things which make it easy to teach Christian stories to children. There's tons of Noah's Ark puzzles and books, for instance. Go for the stuff kids will think of as fun like puzzles, coloring books, and cartoons. There's a cartoon of the major Bible events but I forgot what it's called...

    As for getting more traffic, I'd say it's the same for Christian stuff as it is for just plain stuff. Try to get great search engine rankings and put some pages in Inktomi (paid) just in case the free SEs ignore you! See the Search Engine Insight forum. Page down past most of the posts about the Google Dance until you get to some real information... (The Dance threads have SOME good info but most of it's just speculation and time-kill material.)


    As for ideals the 10 Commandments are obviously the place to start, although most Christian-related organizations branch out from the "thou shalt nots" and go into things they think they should be doing in order to be considered "good". An "above and beyond" philosophy.

    But first you should DEFINE your objective. If it's "to make money" you won't want nearly so much content on it. If it's "to inspire people in the Christian faith", then the Revenue end is probably secondary and the lack of sales that happen when there is too much content won't bother you so much.

    Hope this helps!
