I've been working on my website, CustomDesign by Vickie. It's only about 7 months old, so I'm still working on content most of the time or at least trying to come up with new ideas that will draw interest.
The "Designers Gallery" is intended for all designers who wish to promote their product designs and stores.
I've asked that each who submit their store, to give me a backlink. Actually it's a must, now.
In the beginning, I didn't require it. But, I did ask, without much success. I'm not sure what the problem is, but backlinks are very important for SEO (search engine optimization) This benefits all concerned. If you have your store listed on my website, you will have a better chance at being found, if all stores have a backlink to CustomDesignn by Vickie. You might say, one hand feeds the other. It works!If you're unfamiliar with how SEO and backlinks work, Google it.
I've also asked for contributors with ideas, again no success.
A mixture of thoughts and ideas can benefit us all. The bottom line is, we want our products and designs to sell.
