THE LEATHER CONNECTION | home
A New Addition to the site. We have been trialing a few Services, Web tools, etc. Some of them we have been using ourselves for some considerable time with excellent results. Others are quite recent & still under assessment. Some of these are free others will need to be purchased. We will give our views, assessments and recommendations where appropriate. We are exercising the same level of care that we provide when adding our own Leather Related Sites by avoiding any dubious offers. We hope the offers help you all to enhance your own sites and bring in more visitors, more business or just more computer savvy. Any sites that do not prove satisfactory we will drop & we will tell you why.
Ad Gizmo A useful trafic generator It is free & there are some useful tools available. You are encouraged to recruite 3 new members to get your visitor exchange going. The advertising fraternity harp on about the money being in the lists & there is sense in this, we all need visitors to our sites if we want customers ready to purchase our products. To see whats on offer visit, Copy & paste the folowing URL into your address bar, http://www.adgizmo.com/?u=24645 (Yes you sign up under me which boosts my visitor rating). But likewise if you join your sign ups benefit you.
Your Lucky Site. A brand new Traffic Generator, (Yes the title is a bit Naff) but it looks promising. There is a Free version & a Pro Version (You pay for extra features). The best part about this one is that you don't have to surf other sites to earn visitors to your site. You do have to recommend it to your own contacts though to get members on your own list, (so come on sign up under me) to get listed using the URL below Then get contacts of your own to sign under you to start your own lists. No it's not like a chain letter You also get other credits passed to you as bonuses. What do you get out of it? At the best more visitors & the possibility of some extra sales, Higher Rankings with the search engines. At worst nothing, no losses no gains. If you try it out like me using free membership you want loose any money either. To give it a go Click The Following URL. http://www.yourluckylist.com/index.php/Francis
'Traffic Swarm' is another useful Traffic Generator we have also used it for about a year & it does bring in visitors. You have to use it as your start page when accessing the Internet & view the list of offers, the system works if you click on any of them to view the site listed. You are then allocated credits which are transferred to visitors to your site. There is a free & a Pro version. We use the free version but don't often click on other adds so we don't get the amount of visitors that we could. However it is a reliable service. Visit them at: www.trafficswarm.com
Free Classifieds - Post free classified ads in a variety of categories and get exposure to your product, service, or affiliate link.
The List Machine A new Traffic generator we are trying out. It looks promising There are also some 'Forums' one of these allows you to place adds related to your site. We will add a report later. To view it go to: http://www.thelistmachine.com/index.php/burhide

Free Search Engine Submission service
This is a very useful free service for all our site members. One of the main problems is getting your site visited by all the many free 'Search Engines' that are available on the Web. It is very simple to enter your details & site URL & they will submit your site to all of them for you. Don't expect instant results however as it can take weeks for the search Engine 'Spiders' to crawl your site for information. There is also a nifty search facility on this site which allows you to select a search engine, then enter your own URL to check on your rating. A Tip. We are highly rated with some of the larger search engines like 'Google' & so are the sites with a return link to this site.
If you need to produce more visitors or sales then display a prominent link to The Leather Connection & have your site listed free in one of our categories
