- DIY Promotion for Tourism
|Rather than pay Snowgoose or other Internet
companies a lot of money to register you and get
your Web site listed on other sites, here is an opportunity
to do it for yourself. Or you can
try here for one of the better online self-promotion websites.

You need to carry out a Health
Check on your web site. If you dive right in with a
half-finished site you can do more harm than good.
The more you are listed on other sites, with links to your
own site, the more the search engines will know you are
there and more web users will come across your name. So it is
important for your business to be listed on other sites, with
a link through to your own web site. For a good list of accommodation-related
web sites, look at our accommodation
It is also important to have links from your own
site to other relevant sites of interest, see our adding

To get you started, below is a list of accommodation sites

a FREE WEB LINK from their site to yours.
Click on each web site link below to look at their main site.
Click on the (promote)

|Once you have tested the water with the free sites
you will feel ready to try out the 'big boys' on our accommodation
directories page. They usually charge for listings
and links but, because they are often bigger and may have wider
exposure than those above, they can reap greater dividends.
