    Something big is coming for the members of AGD... I am hoping in about 2 weeks I will roll it out... It is something that will help your business if you take advantage of it! It was built on sponsorship dollars specifically for the members here :)

    I'm not going to say any more than that, but know that something awesome is coming! I'm excited for the roll out and hope everyone is going to take full advantage of it. BTW - it is another FREE service :)

    The date of implementation is getting closer and closer... Next week we will have the new feature at AGD and I expect a lot you to be wasting valuable time with it :)

    AGD Member Websites
    The AGD Member websites system is designed to give a huge SEO benefit to active AGD members. An active AGD member will be defined as a member who has 10 quality posts in a given month. Without 10 quality posts, the bulk of the SEO benefits will be removed for that user. The purpose of this is twofold: To keep spammers from using the system and to give the most benefit to our active users.

    The SEO Benefits and areas of the AGD Member Websites system will be:


    • AGD Member Website Listings - Described below, this area will show all member websites (entered into the system) with an SEO-Friendly listing.
    • Website Profile Page - The profile page for a member's website gives the member the ability to set up a whole page (on AGD) about their website. This configuration allows the user to do the following:
      • Upload your website logo
      • Create the H1 tag for the page
      • Create sidebar content sections which include:
        • LinkRoll Menu - The ability to add your own linkroll to the sidebar which could be links to inner pages on your website or links to your other websites.
        • RSS Menu - The ability to add an RSS Feed to your menu. The feed will pull all the latest topics and link them directly to the RSS Feed's article link. If using wordpress, this would take your post titles and hotlink that to your article.
      • Create Main content sections which include:
        • Custom Content - A custom content (HTML) box which allows you to create your own SEO-Friendly HTML content with links (maximum of 5 outlinks)
        • RSS Content - Add an RSS Feed to your main content area. This will bring the full RSS Feed into your main content area including the title , date, and content of the RSS articles. It will include a linkback for every article/topic to your website.

    Below are screenshots and summaries of all areas of the AGD Member Website system:


    AGD Website Listings - By Member (Active Member)
    The main listings for AGD members will display a site listing with SEO benefits. Note that the link to your website has the SEO-text you wish as the anchor text for the link in 2 places (heading text and profile page text). All members with at least 20 posts can have their listing at AGD provided their posts are relevant content and not created for the sole purpose of gaining this SEO benefit. This listing is just the beginning of the SEO benefits of member listings

    AGD Website Listings - By Member (NON-Active Member)
    NON-Active members will have a very basic listing at AGD. While this will provide a very limited SEO benefit, there are no linkouts and any keyword-based SEO benefits are non-existent.

    AGD Website Listings - Homepage - TOP 5 ACTIVE MEMBERS
    The top 5 most active AGD Members (excluding 'Guard Dog') will have their site(s) listed on the homepage of the AGD Website Listsings section. This gives an extra 'push' both for web surfers as well as SE indexing.

    Website Profile Page
    As discussed above, the Website Profile page is where the SEO benefit really kicks in. It is a very customizable platform allowing you to create your very own SEO page on AGD linking back to your website. You will have the ability to add: Your Logo, Your H1 keyword, sidebar content such as linkrolls and rss menus, and a main content area to add custom HTML content and full RSS Feeds. Not only that, but users/surfers will be able to 'like' your webisite with Google Plus, Pinterest, Tweet, and Linked In sharing.

    Notifications and Alerts
    Alerts will be sent out to users when they have active websites in our system and their posting count is low. This will ensure that you are fully aware if your SEO benefits could expire due to low activity. This will happen mid-month so that you have plenty of time to be 'active' at AGD :)


    Summary
    This system was designed from the ground up to provide AGD members with high-quality links to their website. It is a valuable resource and, given proper usage, should help give you a VERY powerful link into your website. Use it well and remember that our Platinum Sponsors have made this new feature possible! Visit them now on the homepage of the AGD forums, they are all quality programs.

    Anyone fancy chatting to me on Skype sometime to try to explain (in very simple English) to this thickie what all that means?
    For example, I have no idea at all what "LinkRoll" or "RSS" mean...

    Thanks,
    KK

    This is brilliant - on a lighter note, is this regarded as a quota?! :p

    :) I can chat today (well, IM, not 'real' chat)... Skype: Affiliate.Guard.Dog.

    LinkRoll - A set of links you create with your own anchor text. Allows you to create deep links to your site and the content you want to rank for

    RSS - RSS Feeds allow you to syndicate your content. RSS Feeds are XML that are easily converted to articles with links. RSS Feed in the sidebar would be a set of links to your 'articles'. This is helpful for Wordpress, Joomla, vBulletin, and more. RSS Feed in the content area would be more than just links and would either show full articles or partial articles (depending upon how your RSS Feed is set up)



    I am hoping by early next week! :)



    Ha! Yes, I knew someone was going to mention that. Yes, yes it is! It's a spammer quota :)

    Was only kidding ;) I think it's a brilliant idea to reward the active users

    I know :) And I DO see the humor in putting forth a quota :) It is very funny, IMO.

    AGD - gotta say that one of my primary motivations for posting in any forum is links. I try never to spam and only post where i have something relevant to contribute, but the extra link in the sig - while not the most powerful of links - is relevant and in monetary senses cheap. That new feature makes it absolutely worth my while to post frequently and i'd like to say a big thanks for offering such a user focused service. If every business focused on the needs of their customers so intently, their be no need for complaint sites at all! I look forward to posting here often in the years to come!

    I will add you on Skype - but my "chatting windows" are not very frequent - only about twice per week (due to being a house-husband with little kids to look after!)
    I'll try and catch you sometime to expand on your explanations above, which are still a little over my head to be honest.

    Cheers,
    KK
