If you have a live website, the following fields should be completed as far as possible.

Hint: You do not have to have a registered domain name or a live website to be able to join adoppo.com. Anybody can join and then register their website details once they are available.

WEBSITE NAME

Enter a name for your website e.g. Cashrise

This will be the identity of your website in the adoppo.com internal search engine.

Hint: You can change your Website Name in the future, but not the Website URL. See below.

WEBSITE URL

Enter the URL for the website e.g. cashrise.com

This allows other members to link to and view your actual website.

Hint: Make sure you enter the correct URL. The details cannot be amended by yourself in the future. You will have to contact us and we will only amend genuine mistakes.

Hint: You can enter http://www.cashrise.com or https://www.cashrise.com etc., but your URL will just appear as cashrise.com on adoppo.

COUNTRY

Enter the Country where the website is established. This is for the website search facility.

CITY

Enter the City where the website is located. This is also for the website search facility.

YEAR ESTABLISHED

Enter the year your website was established. This can be any date from when the domain name was first registered.

This field is optional but is beneficial for other members to see how long you have been established in their search results.

Hint: This information is preferred to be seen by members in their search results and is likely to result in more enquiries from other members seeking co-advertising partners.

NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES

If the website is integral to a business, the number of employees in that business can be entered here. Use the dropdown to choose the appropriate number.

Hint: Providing this information is also optional, but it is also preferred to be seen by members in their search results, and is likely to result in more enquiries from other members seeking co-advertising partners.

WEBSITE TYPE

Tick the appropriate box which best describes your website type.

WEBSITE INDUSTRY

Use the dropdown and tick the appropriate box which best describes the industry your website fits into.

Hint: Press CTRL to select more than one industry.

Hint: If you cannot see an appropriate industry in the list provided, tick “OTHER” and provide a simple description of your industry in the PRODUCTS, SERVICES or FEATURES fields below. You can contact us to inform us about your industry and for it to added to the list in the future.

WEBSITE CATEGORY

Use the dropdown and tick the appropriate box which best describes the category your website fits into.

Hint: Press CTRL to select more than one category.

Hint: If you cannot see an appropriate category in the list provided, tick “OTHER” and provide a simple description of your category in the PRODUCTS, SERVICES or FEATURES fields below. You can contact us to inform us about your category and for it to added to the list in the future.

MONTHLY VISITOR COUNT

Use the dropdown and choose the correct Level of the number of visitors to your website on a monthly basis.

Hint: Be 100% truthful and accurate with this information. Other members will very likely want to see proof of visitor count before entering into co-advertising partnerships with you.

Hint: Use adoppo.com to grow your visitor count by co-advertising with other members. You can change your visitor count Level as you grow your traffic. Refer to the Edit function below.

PRODUCTS

Write a description of the products sold through your website, if any.

SERVICES

Write a description of the services provided through your website, if any.

FEATURES

You can provide a written description of any features of your website which you would like other members to know about when they find your website in their search results.

CO-ADVERTISING PREFERENCES

Details of which other websites you are interested in co-advertising with should be entered, again, for the adoppo.com internal search engine, so that other members can see if your website might be a suitable match for co-advertising.

Here are some examples:

“We make and supply wedding cakes, so we would be very interested in co-advertising with other suppliers (not cake suppliers) or service providers in the weddings industry. We would especially be interested in co-advertising with hotels with wedding function facilities. Any location in UK is fine, and our preference would be for our partner websites to be at least at Level 2.”

“We are interested in co-advertising with any other websites so long as they do not conflict with our own products. We are very flexible and welcome all enquiries.”

“We are interested in co-advertising with other trades in the construction industry. We are electricians, so we are looking to mutually grow our visitor count and our business by co-advertising with other trades such as plumbing, heating and ventilation, general builders etc.”

Hint: Use this space to let other members know that you might be interested in accepting goods or services or payment for your advertising space, rather than just a straight ad swap.

For example:

“We are not a business, so although we are interested in co-advertising with other websites to grow our website traffic, we would also be interested in receiving payment or goods or services in exchange for advertising space on our website.”

Once all the boxes are filled in, press the ADD tab and all the entered details will be logged into adoppo.com and will be searchable by all other members of adoppo.com.

The page you have just filled in is basically a homepage for your website. All the details entered will be visible to all other members.

Your Website URL and any uploaded image will be displayed in the Latest Websites of every members’ dashboard giving you instant exposure and free advertising to the whole adoppo.com community.

Hint: All the above information (except the website URL) can be edited in the future. See below.


ADD MORE WEBSITES

Follow the same process as described above to add the details for any other websites which you want to add to adoppo.com.

Users may register details for up to 3 websites within the period of their annual subscription of £29.50 (+VAT).

Additional websites can be added for an additional annual subscription of £9.50 (+VAT) per website. These are ‘one-off’ payments and will allow users to add additional websites for the remaining period of their annual subscription.

If you register more than one website on adoppo.com, the website with the highest adoppo ranking Level will be displayed on your Dashboard and when other members view your member profile.


EDIT YOUR WEBSITE DETAILS

All website details (except for the Website URL) can be edited at any time by clicking on the edit icon next to where the name of each of your websites is displayed (underneath “YOUR DASHBOARD”)

Remember to press SAVE to save any amendments.

TELL US ABOUT CHANGES TO YOUR RANKING LEVEL

Whenever the visitor count increases for any of your registered websites, and that higher visitor count puts you in a higher adoppo ranking Level, you can tell us about it and your Level Jump will be publicised in the Latest Level Jumps section of every member’s dashboard. This gives you free advertising for your website to the whole adoppo.com community with no extra charges.

All you have to do is select the relevant website from your list of registered websites, click the Edit button as shown above, and change the Website Monthly Visitors Level.

Hint: Be 100% truthful about your visitor count information and any changes to your adoppo ranking Level. Other members will highly likely want proof before entering into any co-advertising agreements with you.


UPLOAD IMAGES

You can upload an image for each of your website homepages at the same time as you are adding the above details or at any time using the Edit function.

Uploaded images will appear next to your websites when they are listed in Latest Websites, Latest Adoppos, Latest Level Jumps and in other Members’ search results.
