B&B ADVERTISING (if you have a website of your own)
These entries are included on at least 4 pages, each having a link to your own website:
- the "Complete B&B List"
- the relevant "Town/Village page"
- the B&B Selector map
- the Links page
- the "Hideaways", "B&B Plus" pages if relevant
- the right hand menu on the home page if relevant
Every B and B advertiser also gets a "whole window" link to
their website from our Links page, thereby increasing their own website's search engine popularity count.
To qualify for inclusion your business and your website should be of a good quality and meet my high business standards.
Your B&B accommodation does NOT need to be Agency or Tourist Board inspected, and...
I do NOT inspect accommodation either, but do try to visit all our B&Bs at some point, just to satisfy myself that you provide a quality service and to say hello.
Please also note that we only link to good websites. They do not have to be expensive technical masterpieces, but of a good standard and technically sound. Poorly laid out home made websites which do not "answer all the questions" or which have bad amateur photos will not be acceptable. We do not link to competitor websites or websites which are hosted by competitors.
I reserve the right to refuse a link to a website without explanation.
Your advert entries will normally be live within 2 working days of your payment being received.
ADVERTISING YOUR B&B IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WEBSITE
This consists of a single screen of information
with up to 6 photos, hosted within this website.
Ideal, low cost solution ! - A Single Web Page of your own B&B hosted within this website (newforestbedbreakfast.co.uk)
New: We now include an embedded interactive map locating your accommodation.
We also edit and optimise your photographs for screen display and maximum impact.
The web address (URL) of your page would be:-
See here for an example
NOTE: Unlike pages of this type on most other directories, your page will NOT have any reference to newforestbedbreakfast.co.uk apart from the copyright notice in small text at the bottom of the page.
There will be no links out of the page (except to the map service).
This is a great advantage, because you can link to this address from any other internet advert. (Many directories - including this one - will not link to pages which display or advertise a competitor website).
You will need to supply the photographs (attach them to an email once the Editor has responded to your application).
You will also need to supply the main text content or refer us to another existing advert that can be copied.
Please use the following address, link text and/or logo to link to this website:
"Recommended New Forest Bed and Breakfast accommodation with detailed tourist information"
We reserve the right to refuse entries without explanation.

ANALYTICS SUMMARY 2012 to date:
Average time a user spends on this website: 5mins:15secs
Average number of pages each user views per visit: 5.53
5min 15secs is a very long time on the internet and shows that users are really using this website; they must find it easy to use and very useful.
NEW STAT FOR April 2012: iPad users now account for 10% of all users of this website.
NOTES ON THE STATS TABLE ABOVE:
1. The crucial column is the second one - "Unique visitors". This indicates each new surfer looking at newforestbedbreakfast.co.uk.
The often-quoted huge number - "Hits" - is very misleading because:-
Each web page (of any site) is made up of the text (1 file) plus many other image and control files (such as gif and jpg pictures, css and scripts). Each file delivered by the server to make up the page that a surfer sees counts as a "Hit". This means that each page may contribute as many as 100 or more Hits. So, don't be misled by advertising hype about millions of hits per year !
2. Analysis of our stats shows that
advertisers each get between 200-650 click-thro's per month to
their websites from newforestbedbreakfast.co.uk, depending on their location and the time of year.
At £85 per year, this works out at between 1p and 2p per referral. Compare this to the 50p+ per click you would pay Google Adwords !
The actual number you get will depend on your location, the photo and your description text, in that order. So get an inviting photo!
These statistics are independently collected by Awstats and
