Keywords, meta-tags, and links is what get sites ranked, noticed and used.

One way to achieve these goals is networking.

With more than 800 .mobi’s and more than 5000 domains in general, I certainly have enough sites to interconnect and link and create my own networks. And I will.

For more than a year now I have been saying that we need to work as teams to network, exchange services, barter, etc. Personally, as a whole for the forum I have seen very little activity and I will wait no longer. Now that I know how to develop sites I hope to blaze a trail and leave me mark in doing so. I am not blasting the community as a whole but I am disappointed. As for building sites, there are many freebee tools and sites out there including a joomal tutorial (iJoom.net (http://iJoom.net)) site that I spent countless days building to have an instructional site.

Building sites means building awareness.

Awareness comes in many forms of promoting and linking. Cross promotion (different platforms such as matching PC and Mobile names) are very beneficial.

I am no expert in SEO but I am happy to report that I have seen significant increases on Adsense for Mobile in traffic and revenue. While the CTR may not be high, the Adsense for Mobile CTR exceeds Adsense for Content. Something that even Google themselves are reporting. There are many aspects to SEO but networking, links, appropriate keywords, and metatags are just some of the simpler ones that can be accomplished.

But here is the main point…I am not waiting. I have already been working on many of these projects all the while inviting others to participate and get involved.

I will ***er this opportunity to all who want to participate. But the sites included must be exactly that…finished sites.

For my names that have PC site counterparts, each PC site will contain basic info regarding the specific subject matter. It will also be used as portal to the mobile sites. Some of the PC site .com and .net address may be redirected to the .mobi.

For instance, BodyHuman.net

http://ncobx.mobi/images//picture2.jpg (http://BodyHuman.net)

will contain a banner and prominent feature demonstrating that We’re Mobile. A link will direct the viewer to BodyHuman.mobi. A listing of related sites will be made on the PC site as well.

The .mobi site will then contain all the links to member sites.

The .mobi site will be intermixed with text links and mini banners.

Members who have sites who also have graphics suitable to be a mini banner will be considered. I prefer a certain size and have no problem making these. I would like to intermix text and graphics. The order of the listings and who gets graphics will be solely at my discretion and whatever I think works best and looks good.

Your sites are your sites. Plain and simple. Any traffic or revenue directed to your site is yours.

I would like sites to be without porn related material or links.

The criteria is not strict and somewhat flexible. Again, at my discretion. In other works, for AtlanticCoast.mobi,

http://ncobx.mobi/images//atlantic%20coast.jpg

I do not want individual city news, sports, weather etc when one site included for News, Weather, Travel can accommodate the entire east coast.

The networks will be grouped in like or similar genres, niches, etc. I think this will work best and keep customers looking and browsing longer and stay within the network of sites.

The benefits to me will be the same to you…links and traffic (I hope) to my sites. If I achieve high ranking in Google and Yahoo then there is a good change others will benefit from this also. For instance, you can do a google search right now for the simple generic words raced, infield, iCPR, and bikefest and see where the .mobi of each rank for yourself.

Anyone and everyone can participate regardless whether you think you have good names or not. Here is what I mean.
Take the site WineDot.mobi.

http://winedot.mobi/images/picture1.jpg (http://winedot.mobi)

This is a listing of wine and wineries in the 50 states. I can and will easily create links to each state, as you can see. This is no extraordinary feat or by any means time consuming. Or, if you would like to do a state, do it! If you have a mobi name sitting around not being used or making squat parked, regardless of the name you can create site dedicated to Wyoming vineyards. What I am going to put in as linkage is Wyoming. You construct the site, put all the adsense and non-sense you want in there and it is your site. But the only thing is that you must dedicate the site to the subject matter and not redirect folks elsewhere. So there is really no point in regging new names or trying to find a state name when you may have names that need to get exposure and traffic. Again, name will be subject to approval. I don’t want links to end up going to bogus sites or ***ensive names.

Don’t have a name suitable? Contact me. Chances are I do. We can share revenue links (one for you, one for me) and be done. We accomplished this with aVet.mobi. It is a stand alone site plus networked into other pet related sites and more to come. Not only did it give someone else a chance to make a buck, but it was no cost to them to buy the name, I pay for the hosting, they hopefully get traffic, and I have another site built! To me this is a great way of getting things done…someone wants to be part of something and can be without any expense or cost to them. It is just a time issue. And if that person links aVet.mobi

http://avet.mobi/logo.gif (http://avet.mobi)

to other sites or their sites, it means greater exposure, higher rankings, and greater opportunity for revenue. So this is a win/win for me and the developer.

I already have plans for a few states so if this interests you then please contact me.

I have several of these networks planned and many in the works. Listed below are some of the immediate plans, with many already underway. I you have something suitable or would like to ***er, please MP me and post it. There are a great many opportunities to be part of this.

Vitis.mobi
http://vitis.mobi/images/vitis.jpg (http://vitis.mobi)
Site (network) that will include all the above wine sites and more. So basically a network of networks.

I have numerous wine related domain names that others can co develop like (not sure of accuracy of all of these…tasted, sipped, sipping, WineTasters, and newly acquired Casks.mobi). I also have French, Spanish, and Italian and Portuguese language keywords. It will not be necessary to have these in the native languages but would be great to have the tie in to the county’s name.

Actively working on as time permits…
MoBiOptics.com
MoBiOptics.mobi
http://ncobx.mobi/images//picture3.jpg (http://mobioptics.com)

In planning stages now…

EastCoastUS.com/mobi, InterCoastalNetworks.com/mobi, GulfShoreWeb.com/mobi.

TerraMobi.com/mobi - once the Why.mobi translations are done this site will be used to feature all translated versions as well as link to mobi blogs and forums.

Will also be studying other markets such as Adriatico.mobi (Italy and Greece along with others features in the Adriatic Sea) AgeanIslands, Mexico Coast and resorts, Europe travel, etc.

So, this is it. It is full steam ahead for me, time permitting.

PM me with sites, suggestions, or if you want to participate. These projects will never be closed but I am just going to be steadily working on these.

Your dedication and generosity are laudable Gerry.
My to do list is totally full right now, otherwise I would collaborate with you on this. As soon as I can, you'll be at the top of my potential partners.
I am sad to see that such initiatives have so little response (it has happened to me before!) but I try to remember that people have families, jobs, and different priorities to mine or yours, and they do things at their pace and cannot go faster.
If you ever come to the UK it would be great to talk to you. Now in the London meeting I will try with the English guys to do just that, see where we are, what we have, and how we can best collaborate to benefit everyone.
I think you should do the same there. Meet with mobility guys in your area. The forum is ok but very limited if you want to build this kind of projects on a solid foundation.
Nothing like face to face communication!

Thanks, Javier.

It is a project that would never be closed. But it also will be harder to get included as each network progresses simply because links will end up being my own if I end up doing most of my sites to fill these voids.

I am keenly aware of commitments and obligations outside of the forum that we all have.

We can all sit around and discuss what needs to be done. But when it comes time for action then it is time for action...talk is done.

I'll be glad to take a look at various listings of member's sites but that will be less time dedicated to this project if I have to spend too much time looking for sites.

Great initiative again Gerry. As this progresses I'd suggest a thread for each master site, such as "seeking links for AtlanticCoast.mobi" or something similar.

Great initiative again Gerry. As this progresses I'd suggest a thread for each master site, such as "seeking links for AtlanticCoast.mobi" or something similar.Will do. Realizing that I have a tendency to write too much at once thinking I am still in the research phase of my life.



Will have some sites for you to consider for these. One thing I want to better understand, if for example my future HiltonHead.mobi has news and/or weather info, will that concern you?Not one bit. I would expect individual site as this to have a multi-faceted information appeal.

I just don't want to devote an entire listing to each and every town along the east cost to have something like this:

Halifaxnews.mobi
Halifaxsports.mobi
Halifaxweather.mobi
HalifaxEats.mobi
HalifaxAirports.mobi
HalifaxTraffic.mobi
HalifaxOrbituaries.mobi
HalifaxTides.mobi
HalifaxWaterTemp.mobi
HalifaxBirths.mobi
HalifaxWeddings.mobi
HalifaxFishing.mobi
HalifaxWhaleWatching.mobi

...when the main emphasis should be on the geo site itself such as Halifax, Bay***undy, BarHarbor, Portland, CabotTrail, Castine, so on moving down from Canada to Florida.

I want to emphasize and feature all that Hilton Head has to ***er, as I am sure you do. As a matter of fact, that is entirely on you.

Hilton Head will occupy a spot on the site, AltanticCoast.mobi. AtlanticCoast.mobi is more a less a portal or directory of sites along the eastern Coast.

And the fact that Hilton Head is such a mecca for vacation, golfing and more, it would only be natural for that site to have weather, news, surf conditions, boating conditions, etc., fishing reports... it would be almost a necessity to have that info contained within your site.

Thanks for clarifying Gerry, and again I must commend this initiative.:adore:

I will have WineDot.mobi done today.

If folks have a state specific wine site, I can easily put a link into my site directing the viewer to their site.

That is what I mean when this is basically a never ending project.

But time is a wastin!

Gerry,
Your sites are wonderful, setting a great example of what can be done for all at mobility.mobi to see.

Well done.

I am hoping that we might be able to work together by linking some of our pet sites together.

I think the problem is that most of us own so many domains that will be working 24/7 for years to get them all developed .

Then there is the upkeep.

Using scripts like wordpress, joomla, drupal is great, but we also have the added work of updating these script when updates become available.

Developing is great fun, but can be a pain at times. This year I had the misfortune to have one lot of hosting dissappear [ i got caught in a fight between a hosting firm and a reseller } I lost 26 sites, that where important to my business. I am still trying to rebuild some of these sites.
Then I have sites with Coppermine galleries, thankfully only 5 sites, but guess what ?Coppermine sites had a problem about 2 months ago and most Coppermine sites where all hacked into. So back to the drawing board fixing this and updating the sites.

I will send you a p.m. asap with a list of pets sites I am working on.

Keep up the great work.

I personally feel that development by us mobi domainers is critical for mobi's future.

I am hoping that we might be able to work together by linking some of our pet sites together.

Dogs, and pets in general, is definitely on the agenda. Just not sure exactly when. I have a few TM applications pending and my have a couple more in the works.

A name I was very happy to acquire was OfDogs.com and OfDogs.mobi was unregged.

So there are many options for stringing together sites related to like subjects. I think that will be a huge factor in pushing mobi forward but sites in general.

Micheal posted an item today that is so timely with this entire networking concept.

Google Trends Comes To Web Sites: Trends For Web Sites (http://searchengineland.com/080620-131900.php)
http://mobility.mobi/showpost.php?p=58647&postcount=1

I would encourage anyone to start working on similar projects. But, I understand other priorities. That is why you need a clock like mine...it has 30 hours in a day.

Great job of keeping the fire burning and spreading Gerry

We've already done something with type1 and iCPR :biggrin:

I'd be interested in joining forces with bodyhuman when you're ready. I see it's parked for now. I would think that earlysigns, type1 and possibly daterape might be good fits.

Let me now if you think any of my general zip search sites would be of interest. They're all currently PR4's and quite SE friendly

BodyHuman.net is active. The .mobi is not yet.

I think the Type 1 would be a great addition, along with iCPR, to use on the .net followed by the .mobi
