Wow! I don't know what to say about all the sites I have visited through this discussion. There are obviously some extremely talented people using Synthasite as their web hosting service. Since Ruth invited me to share my site on this thread, I will. Here it is...
Bibles-4-soldiers
I wish I could say my site is every bit as cool as some of the other sites I've visited on this thread, but there are just way too many cool sites on this thread to make such a claim. Still, my site is trying to accomplish a worthy goal and I'd like to invite you all to visit.
Thanks!
Kevin.

Hi Deathnote,

Most sites, especially fan sites and game sites (which are related and you should consider linking to), have link exchanges. this means that two webmasters agree to post a link to the others site.

This is a great way to increase traffic for your site and to increase page ranking on search engines like google (your page rank is mostly determined by how many other sites link to you)

Here is an example of an anime related site with a link exchange setup:: http://www.animeph.com.

If you click on "Links" and then "Apply for Link Exchange/Affiliates" at the bottom of that page, you will be taken to a form that you can fill out with your sites information. The webmaster at http://www.animeph.com will look over your site, and if he/she approves, in this case a he, he will put your link on his site. But he will only do it if you link back to his site.

I have a link exchange on my site too (which you are free to exchange with aswell) at http://www.gamedemonarcade.com (note: my site is undergoing a complete makeover; all +200 pages. come back in a week or two. It's going to look awesome).

Click on "Link Exchange" in the top right of my page. That will take you to a page of links to other sites i have exchanged with. You can exchange links with me by pressing the "Add Your Own Link" button and filling out the form.

You can get your own link exchange either set up manually (post your email address and ask people to contact you with their information; or create a form asking for information you want)

Or if you want what I have go here: http://htmlgear.lycos.com/specs/link.... and sign up for it, its free.

note: all link exchanges are different. and some are very strict about who they exchange links with and have guidelines, so don't be discouraged if you get turned down.

ps sorry for the long message. I was bored

Hey gamedemon

thanks a billion for all these tips, and I did added my link to your website but how do I add your link to my website, do i just create a new page called Link Exachange and then what ? Also thanks for that anime website but how do I find other anime websites that have link exchanges most likely they won't have link exchanges and how do I find anime websites that or not official because the official one's wont link you and wont have a link exchange( would they link you ) what im saying is how do I find an anime website that is created by just one person like me, not those official one's if you know what im saying, and you know how your website end with .com not .synthasite.com how do you do that i know that you have pay but is there a free way to do it.( and WooW your website is great, i played some games that i really enjoyed )

ps did you notice that i had the word "and" in my sentence like a bunch of times

Hey Deathnote

Yes, the best thing would be to add a separate page to list all of your links.

What most sites, including I, also do is post a few links on our homepage as well. This gives them more exposure. The more traffic you send to other sites, the higher they will move you up their list.

(and yes, they do know where their traffic is coming from. If you'd like to know where your traffic is coming from, try www.histats.com or google analytics)

Second, a good way to find other anime sites is simply to google it. But an even easier idea would be to just go to the other sites listed on the sites you exchanged with. http://www.animeph.com/links.html has a huge list of sites that you can trade with.

Unfortunately, the majority of the sites you apply to are probably going to reject you because they are strict and only allow sites that get a lot of traffic, and some don't trade with free host sites. You need to find sites that are liberaI and don't have too many guidelines. I wouldn't start exchanging with sites until your site is fully complete.

Also, don't forget that many free pc game sites, similar to mine, exchange links with anime and media sites because they are similar. They are usually a lot more liberal. Try your luck with them too.

Best of luck

ps: off topic, forums are a great way to get traffic. don't spam, post a link in your signature and write a lot of posts. people will click on your link and may bookmark it. here's one i found off the net: http://www.animenation.net/forums/

Also top sites. Here is one i found off the net: http://afufu.net/topsites/

oh yeah, and i did pay for my domain name. You have to get it at a registrar like www.godaddy.com, www.enom.com, Yahoo Small Bussiness, or my registrar www.namecheap.com.

at namecheap i pay $9.29 a year for my .com. you can't get a .com for free anywhere, but you can get short subdomains at www.co.nr, www.co.cc, just to name a few. It is your choice.

Note that some sites only exchange with .com .org .net .info type domains

hey gamedemon

Thanks again for all these tips, you are really smart sorry if im asking too many questions, so if i get that co.cc domain will i still have access to my synthasite acount ?

Like synthasite is a really great website to creat free website's but i don't seem to like any of the backgrounds is there anyways i can get another background from somewhere ?

Like you know Im making a website about Death Note, like in the future when im done with Death Note is there anyway then that i can change my url. Like now its www.death-note.synthasite.com in the future i would like to change it to anime something is it possible to do that ?

This question might impossible to do, but like if you have seen my website there are video's of youtube so it doesnt really look good because its exacly like youtube can i put some kinda of death note picture so when they click on the picture the video will automaticaly start playing its really hard to explain but here's a website that did this www.deathnote.tv as you see you have to click on the picture to start vewing the video.

ps: thats a great logo you made

hey deathnote,

ask all the questions you want, i'm happy to help, and this is a commmunity forum.

first, yes your website can be pointed to by both yourname.synthasite.com and your new yourname.com or co.cc (note: try the www.co.nr one first and see how you like it. I tried the co.cc one and i found them a little unreliable. but that is just me. )

and yes you can always change the name of your site by pressing "rename" next to your sites thumbnail.

second, according to other posts that i have read by the reps of this forum, synthasite does not have a feature at the moment for us to import templates from the web. But they are thinking about it and will hopefully add that feature in the coming months. however i am unsure of when or if it will ever happen. the good news is that they do add templates and features every now and then. when i first joined there were a lot less templates. don't forget synthasite is very new and can only get bettter.

third, you can always change your url (in the publishing settings). however, you can never change your domain (yourname.com or co.nr) you would have to buy or get a new one. And then either have both pointing to your site or sell one of them. I, for example, have both gamedemon.org and gamedemonarcade.com pointing to my site. (i got sick of having a .org so i got gamedemonarcade.com to shut myself up) i eventually plan on selling gamedemon.org in the future, and hopefully by then it will be worth big bucks.

my recommendation would be to use co.nr for now, and if you ever decide to expand your website by adding more content and buying a domain, you can get a general anime domain later on

lastly, deatnote.tv is using screenshots of the videos. which you click on, and that takes you to a different page where the video can be viewed in a veoh viewer. unfortunately i don't know how they got their screenshots, but they are doing something very similar to what you are doing, only with veoh instead of youtube. personally i don't see a reason to change your site, but if you want something similar to that site, you would have to find a way to make screenshots of videos. and i wouldn't know how to help you with that.

hey gamedemon

thanks once again for all these great tips, and yeah I did check out co.nr but when i typed in the URL i wanted which was www.animestar.co,nr it was not available and when i whent to co.cc and typed in the URL www.animestar.co.cc luckly it was available and i did it take it, but the problem is that it needs me to vertify my website in the next 48 hours or it will be cancelled. I tried my hardest to vertify my website but I couldn't. When I went to co.cc the instruction to verify my website were these- Sign up Google Apps and verify domain ownership. Then you can make Your own email.
* Create a CNAME record for the verification.
- CNAME record (received from Google) :
________________.animestar.co.cc
- CNAME record point to: google.com.

SET UP

So it said that i have to sign up for google apps in order to vertify my website which I did and next it said that i had to creat a Cname which i tried to do but I couldnt so here is what the google apps instruction's were- Sign in to your domain hosting service and locate the DNS management page. The location varies by service, but can typically be found under Domain Management or Advanced Settings .

Use the following unique string to create a new CNAME record for the death-note.synthasite.com domain:
googleffffffffdfda7ece

Point the CNAME record to:
google.com

Once you have made the changes, you can verify that the record exists by doing a CNAME lookup for http://googleffffffffdfda7ece.death-n... . You can find several web sites to do automated CNAME lookups by searching for CNAME lookup at http://www.google.com .

So for these instruction i didnt understand one bit, one more thing was i suppose to put www.death-note.synthasite.com which I did or should i have put www.animestar.co.cc

If you can get to me as soon as possible that would be great because i only have 48 hours to vertivy my ownership of this doman, thanks.

You see I have changed My URL which is now www.animestar.co.cc since its anime i want to put more anime shows not just one. Like I wana creat my homepage so when people go there there, their should be like a navagation bar something like this - Death Note
Bleach
Code Gease
and so on
then when they click in the anime show they want to watch a different page or the same page change in to something like i have now for the anime show Death Note is there anyway i can do that, please let me know because i really want it so it like that.

ps: when i went to check out http://js-kit.com/ it was awesome i changed my comment bar to that, thanks a BILLION for showing me that

hey deathnote, like I mentioned i had a little trouble with co.cc as well and they don't really have good instructions. I quit and just used the mascing like you did. you have two options, you could either have it how it is now, which does work, or you would have to play around with it. first of all, you don't have to worry about the c-name. this is what i think you have to do.
1. go to co.cc and login;
2. click on manage domain;
3. click on your domain.
4. click on "set up". That should take you to the dns settings page where you have three options;
5. click on "Zone Records" (option 2);
6. in the "host" line type in @ (that's it. @ is a symbol for a domain name);
7. make sure the "ttl" line is set to "1D";
8. set the "type" line to "A";
9, for the "value", type in this number: 208.75.208.172 ;
10. then simply press "set up", and that part is finished.

Next you are going to have to publish it to your site.
1. login to synthasite, and open your site in the site builder; 2. next to the yellow button that says "update my site" is an arrow. click on the arrow and then click on "publishing settings" ;
3. click on "manage domains";
4. under "Domain you already own" type in www.animestar.co.cc and click "check"

It's probably going to say "invalid". If i does, then try again later or tomorrow. it shouldn't take more than 48 hours to validate. that is the standard. if it works, great. if it doesn't, i don't know what to say
most of this information can be found here: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...


i personalized it to co.cc for you. the above tutorial is more for godaddy.com. but it's very similar.
i really hope this works out for you

hey deathnote

I saw your site, and unfortunately, that template only allows 5 pages to display in the menu.

that's ok though because you did say that you want to include more shows. so instead of having links to all your pages in the menu (which would make it gigantic) you should use the menu just for the shows you choose to put on your site.

for example, your menu should read: Deathnote Bleach Code grease

When someone clicks on Deathnote, they will be taken to a page filled with the Deathnote links that will take them to the individual episodes. and the same for bleach and code grease (those shows rock too by the way, bleach and inuyasha got me into anime) you would have to put the links up yourself of course in a text or html widget. basically you are making a menu yourself

if you don't know how to make links to other pages on your site, read this tutorial i wrote on another thread: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

if you don't know how to take pages out of the menu, go to "site manager" and click on "edit menu", then just drag and drop pages out of your menu.

(links are also important for link exchanges by the way)

off topic, both www.animestar.co.cc, and gamedemon.synthasite.com work by the way

ps: i'm happy you like js-kit. i'm also working on a webmaster tools site at webmastertools.synthasite.com. it is no where near finished and won't be finished anytime soon. i only completed tree pages (some of the pages i started, but have not added content yet). but keep it in mind because i plan on adding a lot more web tools eventually. you might find some of it usefull

Yeah Im gona add more show's and do as you explained, but now when i go to www.animestar.co.cc it goes straight to the co.cc homepage. Do you know why this is happening did I vertify my acount late or what ? You can go check yourself just go to www.animestar.co.cc you will go to straight to the co.cc homepage. This didn't happened before. Should I go to co.cc in sign in and delet that domain and register that doman again and then vertify it ? Also i did go to manage domains and typed in animestar.co.cc in the Domains Already Own and it says Not Valid. I tried it a couple of times but it says the samething

first of all, no you shouldn't delete animestar.co.cc, you only get two free domains, then you have to donate something. that's one of the reasons i didn't like them. I guess it doesn't work. like i said before, it probably won't. i guess you can read more of that tutorial which you can find here: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p... and hopefully you can find something we did wrong. otherwise you could just use forwarding like what you were doing before. my guess for why it doesn't work is that co.cc is a subdomain and not a real domain like .com or .org. i don't know, i'm not an expert. if you use the forwarding, you can either choose standard forwarding or masked. if you choose standard, people will see death-note.synthasite.com, if you choose masked, people will see animestar.co.cc on every page.

I've been kind of busy and haven't said much, but I am enjoying this thread, and the cross talk, and people helping people, and the birth of new web sites. I also picked up a few useful tips.

Our sites have just gotten us a nice recognition that I can't talk about yet, but I would not have expected to have come so far so fast.

I redid the home page for http://www.PsychedelicTreehouse.com today to make the purpose of the site clearer. Most of the right column is new.

PJ,
Cool site, It's growing up fast. I looked at it yesterday when you first posted about it and again a few minutes ago and you've made some really nice changes. I want to suggest that you consider putting a "contact us" page on your site. You'll have to set up an E-mail account for your site first with someone like gmail. Then you can put a link to that e-mail address on your "contact us" page and exchange e-mails with visitors to you site. If you want to see how it works go to my site to check it out. This is a great way to start exchanging links with other site owners and it's also quite useful for getting feedback about your site in a more private forum. Actually, Deathnote and Gamedemon should consider doing this too instead of using this thread as an e-mail service to communicate with each other. They would have the benefit of a little more privacy than this thread gives them. Anyways, here's the url to my site, http://www.bibles4soldiers.synthasite...
(I would have done a hot link, but apparently the add a comment part of this thread doesn't support HTML hotlinks)
While you're there please notice the Free Christian Advertising link on the bottom of the home page. When you're ready to start advertising your site, this is a pretty cool way to do it.
Kevin.
