Search engine submission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From what I found at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, it is not necessary to resubmit your website unless you have a new page to be indexed or if you move your website to a new host.  Because of this, I believe that broadening of our Internet presence on the web is very important. That is were a Facebook page comes in, also LinkedIn, blog posts, Twitter, Cafepress, etc., to give more places for the major search engines the chance to discover our website.  I am still researching...

How to Generate Leads Using LinkedIn

Just when I start researching ways to generate leads to www.pjscorner.net and www.starloscockapoos.com, a friend from California sends me an invitation to join LinkedIn. While perusing my email for the day, I ran across this free ebook through HubSpot that looks like it will be helpful in getting started with LinkedIn...

What is Squidoo - And What Can Squidoo Do For You? on Squidoo

Along with having a Facebook page and a blog, here is another way to expose your website to the masses on the internet.  A lens create at Squidoo is a snapshot of your business or a part of your business as well as a way to earn a little cash!  Check out the lens at the end of the link below to see what Squidoo can do for you...

In an attempt to learn more about optimizing our website on my own, I will be posting what I find here.  Posting in our diary will be a way to keep all the material in an easy accessible spot and most importantly serve as a quick reference for the links, articles, posts and info that I find along the way! 

All subsequent articles on this subject will be tagged as: website optimization research

"HOT off the press!!!" at PJ's Corner Gift Shoppe...

Well...there is a new design (Buckeye Butterflies 'n' Indian Painbrush) ready to print that we have showcased in a new area called "HOT off the press!!!"  When Momma and I started working on our new business back in 2003, we found out the literal meaning for this phrase!  As the "new" commercial printer was busy printing our paperdoll creations I happened to pick up the stack of pages off the printer and they were still HOT!  Naturally, I shared this experience with Momma and the rest of the family.  So, we feel that our showcase area for new designs should be titled "HOT off the press!!!"

To Twitter or Not To Twitter...

To Twitter or Not To Twitter...that is the question! RainToday.com, the Premier Site for Marketing & Sales for Professional Services, sent out an interesting email "Why You Need to Use Twitter to Grow Your Business". They are saying that the big companies are using Twitter to "tighten their ad spending with social media clearly becoming the next marketing frontier".

Once the website renovation is complete, I feel that this might be a good move for PJ's. It will be interesting to see if this helps generate traffic to our gift shoppe.

Website Renovations Activated...

It has been extremely hard to find time to work on the website during this past year. Working 10 hour days plus half a day of Saturday does not leave much time to put in the time necessary to bring the quality website that represents Phyllis and Janey's endeavors over the past 6 years. However, it is a top priority to complete the renovation and website optimizations.

While you wait for the rest of the site to come to fruition, please check out PJ's new Apple Blossoms 'n' Butterflies design and the first paper dolls added to PJ's Corner Gift Shoppe!

Almost completed...

We are in the final stages of making our website more navigable! Instead of having design pages plus product pages, I have cut out the product pages. When I am finish you will only see the design pages, paper doll pages and the admin pages in PJ's Corner Gift Shoppe.

As you can see in this screen print, I am working on the Travel Memories 'n' Fun page.

New Navigation Bar for www.pjscorner.net...



I created this new navigation bar for the website. I am starting to experience some unstableness in FrontPage 2003. Some of the web components are not working, such as the link bar. Yesterday I was unable to save the changes to our homepage. I could always upload my changes through an FTP service, however after reading that I could have different problems with this line of action, I called Register.com. After talking with the representatives at Register.com, and finding out that FrontPage 2003 is notorious for becoming unstable on websites with more than 80 pages, they uninstalled and reinstalled my FrontPage extensions on their server and was unable to fix the problem. However, Second Level fixed the problem before midnight and I was able to continue with my original plans to downsize the website.

For Profit or Not For Profit...

This post is entered in the BLOG VILLAGE "Much Ado About Money" Carnival hosted by MARSHAMLOW.

TnT's Place in Pecos

This blog is the "blogvoice" for www.pjscorner.net, where you will find in-depth product descriptions, reviews, new product releases, links to product pages, and diary posts of day to day operations of what happens in PJ's Corner Gift Shoppe! Filled with nostalgically handcrafted cards, stationery and paper dolls that help people keep in touch with their family, friends, and acquaintances, PJ's Corner Gift Shoppe is a place that you can bring the whole family.

We do not have a walk-in store, so our home office has been turned into a workshoppe! With paper dolls a
nd greeting cards pasted on the walls, and cut out paper dolls filling the shelves, Mom and I enjoy the uh, quote unquote, solitude of our workshoppe! Because our designs are created with family in mind, using the artwork of our in-house artist: Phyllis Mae Richardson Fisher, you will find flowers, butterflies, animals and nature as a recurring theme. Our gift shoppe is the home of "Twiglet" the Little Christmas Tree, a children's book about discoveries, miracles, and friendships, and "Neddy, the Little Teddy", the first animal paper doll created in PJ's Paper Doll Factory!

If our society wasn't based on money, then we could be a non-profit organization giving our products away. That would be fun though, just being able to create gift boxes, bags 'n' baskets to take to the children's wards! I can see sad little eyes turning bright as a little girl finds a paper doll to cut out or a little boy glowing from the praise he received for his coloring book masterpiece in crayon!

That would be reward or "money" enough for me...in the meantime, we do make several of our coloring book pages available for FREE download. With the changes scheduled for our website, we will be adding a FREE paper doll and featuring our Kid's Coloring Book page in a more prominent place on our website.
