No I think you've done a wonderful job. Do you have it indexed with the major search engines?

Jul 16th, 2002, 10:44 PM
I think it's a cool site!

Jul 16th, 2002, 10:48 PM
henryj2001, keep in mind too that many of the free website places like tripod, geocities, angelfire now all have bandwith restrictions on their sites. Someone might visit your site and get a "this site has been suspended for an hour because of excessive bandwith usage", and hence they aren't able to access it which may be why you may not get as many visitors as you expected.

I like it. Can we (Williams fans from Jahmals chatroom) use the chatroom during matches? we have been using www.thwilliamssisters.net for years but recently we have not been able to get in.

Maybe we can use your site's chat room when Venus and Serena play there matches.

Also how much does it cost to buy tapes from you. I want three matches how much will that cost?

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:12 PM
how many visitors are you guys getting ?

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:22 PM

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:23 PM
YES!!!!!!!! Please do use the chat room when they play their matches! I would love you all to!!!!!! I can sort the videos out for you, tell me which ones you want and I will do a deal for you :D

Thanks for the vote of confidence all!!!! :D

Sure would love to!!! :D

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:51 PM
I just went to your site and excuse me but it looks a lot like jelenaonline.com. Also dont you also have a venus site on this network? why 2 diff sites. combine both maybe. anf take off venusserenafans.com off your featured site as that site just begs for money and put up the real deal, venustennis.com

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:53 PM
also too many pop ups. just tring to help.

Jul 16th, 2002, 11:57 PM

I can give you a few advices.

First, what is absolutely essential to get hits is to be in the major search engines.

The most important by far are Google, Yahoo and MSN.

MSN is particullary important because when someone types something wrong on the address bar, Internet explorer perform an autosearch using the MSN search engine.

You have to submit your site to them. Very important, submit to the Yahoo directory, that's extremely important as the sites on the directory always come first. Be patient, it can take one week or six months, don't insist because they put it off.

There is also an open internet directory www.dmoz.org
Another important thing is to join fan clubs, like the Yahoo groups and include a link to your site there.

Regarding design, it's important to keep in mind that not everyone has a fast connection, so, try to keep the front page simple, with no many images. I saw you have quite a few banners, I have no problems with it but I have a fast connection.

Another important thing (very important) use the title, and description tags and the metatags to insert keyword.

Be as descriptive as possible and include many words like: Venus, Serena, Williams, Tennis, wta, etc.

The spiders look for this stuff, they also look for the content meta-tags but not all of them do, but they all look at the title tag.

don't use frames, they mess up the spiders.

Try to fit the page's width in a way it fits in the browser windows without having to scroll horizontally. Most sites are targetted for 800 x 600 resolution, it's what most visitors have,you can target it for a higuer resolution but then let the visitors know.

That's all I can think at the moment :)
