I greatly appreciate your decision to support SelfPromotion.com. To make it even easier, if you're paying by credit card, I'll try to fill in the payment form with as much information as possible from any information you've already given me. With any luck, all you'll need to enter is your credit card information and the amount you wish to pay.

Since I absolutely refuse to have dissatisfied users, SelfPromotion.com comes with a 100% unconditional unlimited no-risk satisfaction-assured no-matter-what no-matter-when money-back guarantee. If at any time, for any reason, you come to feel that your subscription to the site isn't worth what you contributed, even if you've only got 10 minutes left before your year's subscription is up, just let me know why you're unhappy (so I can fix it!) and I'll give you a complete refund. And by the way, in over a year online, I can count the number of people who've asked for a refund on the fingers of one hand, and I've still got fingers left!

If you contribute $10 or more, you'll gain access to some cool bonus features (such as the ability to apply for awards), as well as my suite of "Secret Net Tools:"
The Rankulator lets you query the major search engines with the 7 permutations of 3 keywords, and tells you on what page your page appears. It also tells you the URLs of the best pages, so you can learn from the ranking masters.

The Multisubmitter lets you quickly and automatically submit multiple URLs (dozens if you want!) to all the major search engines, and gives you a nice email report of how well it did!

The Keyword Susser queries Goto.com's search terms tool and makes it easy to find out exactly what keywords you really want to be targeting on your pages and in your Meta Tags. And if you are advertising on Goto.com, the Goto.com Search Terms Report will save you hours of work tracking your bids. I've also created a Search Terms Generator that can quickly generate large lists of search terms to bid on.

The Domain Name Sniffer makes it easy to search for great domain names for your site.

The Espionage tool lets you look at a web-page the way the search engines do. It's great for learning the tricks of getting better rankings.

The Link Finder queries the search engines and tells you what sites are linked to your site.

The HTML PrettyPrinter shows you the logical structure of your pages, and helps diagnose those pesky table errors!

The View HTML tool is like your browser's view command, but it also shows you the HTTP headers.

The Keyword Diffuser is a seriously cool tool. You enter keywords that describe your site, and the Diffuser generates many different sets of META keywords tag, one for each of your pages. Each META tag has a different subset of your keywords in different orders; the idea is to maximize the chance that any particular query on a search engine will find one of your pages. It even has a macro processor to help you generate keyword phrases!

And finally, the License Pl8 Genr8tor is a fun little tool that will take just about any phrase and attempt to make a vanity license plate out of it!




First, decide how much you want to pay. Here are my suggested contribution guidelines. Feel free to express your admiration by sending more. I won't complain!

Type of siteSuggestion
Educational $5-10
Personal $10-20
Commercial $25-50
More than 5 sites $10/site
Steve Case of AOL $1,000,0001
Bill Gates $5,000,0002
Larry Ellison $10,000,0003

Notes:
1: Steve, cough up the cash and everyone with an aol.com email address will get priority service.

2: Bill, if you pay up, only users of Internet Explorer will get to use the service! This could be the masterstroke that destroys Netscape! And for a mere $5,000,000.00, how can you go wrong?

3: Larry, you always want to outdo Bill, and here's your chance. You're never going to have a better or cheaper chance to put one over on him! And of course, if you do fork over the bucks, I'll set the site so that users of Internet Explorer can't use it. (Note: if Bill's already paid up, it'll cost you $20,000,000.00, as I'll have to give him his $5,000,000.00 back. So don't delay, pay today!)

Once you've decided how much to pay, the next decision to make is how you want to pay.
Note: I've just updated the payment form to make it easier to use and provide more options. So if you have problems, please email me to let me know what went wrong so I can fix it!

Pay by Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover. Click on the SECURE (encrypted) Form button to the right to transfer to a secure server where you can enter your credit card information.


Please note that some older browsers (including some WebTV browsers) have problems with the new style of internet security certificates. If you have problems connecting to the secure page, then you can either click the button to use the Regular (unencrypted) Form, call me at 1-800-24-ANIME to do things over the phone, or you can fill out the Regular Form, print it out, and fax it to me at 1-910-763-2376.

About this site...
This site was developed on a Macintosh, programmed in WebSiphon, and served by WebStar. The author, on those exceedingly rare occasions when he does think, indeed thinks differently.

It looks (and works) better when you use version 4.0 or better of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, but can be used with any tables-capable browser.
