The really exciting news this summer at Community ConneXion is
that our website is approaching 30,000 hits a month! Publishing
on the Internet has taken on a whole new dimension for us. Added
to all of the articles that are in our newspaper, an up to the minute
calendar of events and our directory of conscious resources, we
offer the many unique benefits that only come with Internet connectivity.
At the heart of the website is the Directory of resources
for conscious living. Every listing has its own link to the web
page or e-mail address, thus giving you further information or communication
immediately. With our search engine, you can search just the directory,
our entire website, including the articles, or the whole World Wide
Web. Simply enter any word or phrase (name, product, service, topic,
etc.) in the search box, and tell it how wide a search you want,
and the information is a mouse click away. We work with it every
day and still think it's pretty amazing!
Our ability to link people with people and every form of
information available globally has caused us to rethink the printed
version of our Internet directory (formerly Wholistic Resource Guide)
and to rename it "LinX"! as in Internet Link capability.
Naturally we spell it with an X to further emphasize all
the "conneXions" we stand for--between people and communities; body,
mind & spirit; earth and sky; east and west; as above so below...
You might call LinX the reader's digest or condensed version
of our conscious resources directory. It is much better than a telephone
book because it also gives you the web page and email address in
a glossy, attractive format that slips easily into a purse or briefcase.
Another new feature of our website is that it now has multiple
home pages. Each 'ConneXion' section is directly accessible by the
public and all the search engines on the web, independent of our
primary home page. This has the effect of increasing the exposure
of each of our advertisers and increasing our ratings with the search
engines while it gives the public more targeted information because
we are more than a Search Engine, we are a DIRECTORY of conscious
Each home page will be color-coded and will carry the same
informational content as the parallel section in the printed version
of Community ConneXion-and more! So, for example, "Health" and all
its subcategories can be found at http://health.communityconnexion.com
and "Starscope" or Intuitives is accessible directly via http://cosmic.communityconnexion.com.
We hope this will enhance the ease of use of our web pages as an
extension of our newspaper. Both printed publications, LinX
and Community ConneXion, interface with our website through the
use of key words and our KEY membership.
FREE CLASSIFIED ADS
Yes, that is correct. We now offer FREE classified ads on
the Internet. If you enter your own classified ad on our website
(compose an ad) the
first 3 lines (100 character spaces) are free in up to 5 categories.
After that you can get additional lines for only $2.00/line per
category for 2 months... and you can get this same low price in
the Community ConneXion print edition by selecting the print option
on the Internet listing form. Since the Internet portion is FREE
you can easily afford both options. You may submit as many ads as
you wish. All ads will appear in the section you choose and you
can search/select classified ads by topic/section.
All of our services are very reasonably priced and many are
absolutely FREE. We offer List & Link on our web page where
you can register your product or service FREE in our Wholistic Resource
Directory in up to five categories with a link to your web page
or email. If you don't have an email address, we offer FREE unlimited
email service. Just go to our home page and look for free services.
All listings and articles are search sensitive.
