Related Links

We are starting to implement related links for the images/contests, similar to how it's done in this entry - they are located right below the image and author's comments. Clicking on the related links/terms will show the page with advertisers links for the clicked term. Each link on that page leads to the separate advertiser's site. We hope you find this related links addition non-intrusive - they are simple quiet links, which are not forced on you in any way, and unless you click on the related links, you will not see any ads. Advertising is the only means of supporting this website, as all our contests are free, and members do not need to pay anything. However, please be assured that we will NEVER have popups or popunders on this site as we consider them "forced advertisements" which are annoying to visitors. We'll have only simple text or graphical banners and related text links.

I can just imagine someone sitting there trawling through all the entries and picking out relavent links for each image...ok oki I guess in reality it is automated in some way - but let me have my fun

They aren't bad at all...glad to hear about no popups - I'd hate to stress my firewall or browser!

3 hours now till I go to see lotr - not that I'm excited!

No problem, Newsy. Some of the links provide a bit of unintended humor. Great to see the site is generating some revenue.

OK - some of these related links are just toooooo funny!!! An entry with a monkey gets "Pet Training" and "Teeth Whitening"?!?! Howard Dean and Mariah Carey get "Pheromones" and "Natural ... Enlargement"!!! HA! Makes contests twice as funny. Think one day we should have a "guess the related links for this entry" competition.

Anyway, time for mince pies. ooooo LOTR rocked sooooo much, but musn't say anything!

Merry Christmas...one and all!

Newsy, I assume these are generated by the keywords we provide when we submit an entry? We could have some fun with these. With my next submission I'm going to include, along with all the relevant keywords, "squid pajamas" and "nostril flowers" ... just to see what happens.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.

You're right,the adds arn't annoying, they're funny, and anything that helps getting the site a revenue is fine by me

By the way, how do the related links work, is it the more we click on it, the more money the site gets? and should we start clicking then? or do you get a fixed amount per month? or is it something else?

I noticed them up yesterday, not intrusive at all, haven't clicked on any of 'em as of yet, but after reading through this thread, I may just hafta have a gander at them.

these links aren't half as funny anymore! And we seem to have lost a few as well. Oh well.
