Limited Time OfferWe have a limited time offer available where you can get phpLD essentially free, and get hosting for 6 months and a free domain to boot! Here is how it works...
(only one per customer)

You must follow the above link and purchase hosting. The main stipulation is you must not have purchased hosting from this company previously. You will need to purchase at least 6 months of hosting which costs $36, but if you stay with host for 90 days, we will send you a rebate of $36. Also, as soon as we get word that you have purchased hosting, we will install phpLD on the hosting for you, and assign you a free license.

So you pay $36 today, and we install phpLD, give you a free license, and send you a rebate back for the hosting after 90 days. And by the way, the host gives you a free domain which is transferrable. I'm told that if you leave before one year, they do ask you to pay for the domain, but otherwise it is free.

After you get done with the hosting purchase, kindly drop into our forum or create a support ticket and we will assist you from there.

You can even choose to have another release installed. Classifieds, Video or even the Article version.

Best Wishes,
the phpLD Team  

Ricky's Templates has just released a new Responsive template for phpLD. It is a premium template and at the time of this writing sells for $25. What's great about this template is it automatically resizes and rearranges page elements so it will look good on PCs, laptops, tablets and phones. Check it out!

Paid Link Removal

There seems to be quite an uproar right now with the Unnatural Linking Penalty in which Google is sending out messages in Webmaster Tools, yet not being very specific about just which links are unnatural and which are not. So of course some of the burden has fallen on directory owners.

Considering the history of the directory submission process, directory owners were often paid for their time reviewing links. If the link met the quality guidelines, then the link was accepted into the directory.

Now fast forward to today, and many of those same people are either requesting changes to the link so the anchor text will not be keyword optimized or outright removal of the link from the directory. It only makes sense that a directory owner would charge for their time, as was discussed last week in “link removal requests”.

If you are getting a lot of requests for removal, it might be worth your time to craft a standard response or send them to a link on your site letting them know the process of paying you for your time to process the removal.

Additionally, you could potentially create an email campaign to ask people if they would live to consider changing their anchor text or description, or even have their link removed from your directory. An

d then again you can send people to the page you created that describes the process for requesting changes in your directory.

Hopefully, this will allow you to get better compensated for your time managing your directory! And feel free to join in on this week’s discussion of paid link removal.
