I own extra domains that I am not currently using. The total that I own is about 150. Yes, I said that right. Why do I have so many? If I think up a domain name, I buy it. Good domain names are hard to find, but they are cheap. Most are related to high schools, colleges, and academics.
So lately I have begun to use those domains. I have put up temporary text that will feed readers into my website.
Look at some of the elements (and elements to come):
- I provide a link to my main website.
- I provide anchor text to my main website.
- I provide links on my Blogroll.
- I even have a Google Adsense ad.
What you don't see yet is the new banner picture across the top that will replace the current one. The new one will be an advertisment for my next book.
So it has now become a big advertisement for my business. I am in the process of putting more of these up. I am curious as to the efficacy, but I think it is a good move.
