THE FUTURE IS RED (WITH RAGE!)

As you probably know by now a couple of months ago I lost access to our web site. I built it up several years ago, way back in 1998. It was provide by Freeserve then, and later on Wanadoo took it over but the address stayed the same. Some time recently Orange took them over and that's when they blocked me out! I have recently checked and noticed that it has now been completely wiped out - miserable bunch. The files have been transferred to

www.itshere.plus.com and it should be up-to-date and shows how the site used to look for Epsom Cine & Video Society. This is provided by my broadband server for which I pay a monthly subscription fee. I am not sure if I will stay with them though so have designed a new look for the site at www.epsomcvs.freeuk.com. This has the advantage that it is provided free and has the unique address which pertains to our club. As you can understand this takes up a considerable amount of time but as I consider this to be part of my hobby there is no problem. Ultimately of course all this is to generate interest in our club and encourage new membership. It is a form of advertising and in my experience, advertising means a large outlay in time or money or both for a very small percentage return. Fortunately in this instance financial considerations can be discarded. Regarding the outlay in time and effort, the greatest part is taken up in the design, set-up and building period. But once we have got it up to a reasonable size and established, it is there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I would very much like members to take an interest in the site and visit it now and then and make suggestions as to its content and treat it as another limb of our organisation. I have asked for comments and here I quote: - "I would question if it is necessary to have a big site with links which might defer a potential new member away from his original desire to find out why where and when we primarily have our regular meetings." The fact is that if we do not have the reciprocal links, no one would be able to find us. It is the best way of getting registered on the Internet. Commercial companies pay fees to have their websites registered on search engines. By having the each-way links our name is registered many times on the search engines. The other factor is the text content of the web site. Once our site is registered, the engines trawl our site and that content can also be referenced on the Internet. This all adds up to the overall exposure, which in advertising terms is what it is all about. The building and refreshing of the site is ongoing as this helps to keep it recognised by search engines. I have purposely added some editing help guides that can be downloaded for those who need them. They can be found in the Technical Tips section. Please visit and let me know what you think. To sum up lets hope the future is not Orange or red but read.
