I’ve modified the Socalsail Buyer’s Guide so that listed companies can have free links to their web sites. My thinking is that this encourages companies to update their listings, and generally makes the site more useful for its users.
Companies whose listings include a link are listed in the “Enhanced Listings” section at the top of alphabetical, category, and location pages. Adding a link to a listing that doesn’t currently have one is fairly simple; you just need to:
1. Create a user account on the site, if you don’t already have one. See the site’s registration page.
2. Go to the Buyer’s Guide page for the company in question, and look for the link that reads “Update This Listing” on the left side of the page.
3. Fill out the form, including the “Web Address” section.
4. Wait for the submission to be approved. (I approve all submissions manually to avoid malicious webspam, among other reasons.)
If you have questions or comments about the new arrangements, send me an email at email@example.com. Thanks!
