World Blessings is a spiritual gathering place dedicated to the unity of souls and to the creation of a sacred earth, offering spiritual guidance and

Your name?
Mashubi Rochell

What is your site called?
World Blessings

How old is the site?
We opened the site in March, 2006.

What is the one unique feature of this site?
We are a membership site that offers spiritual guidance, spiritual teachings and spiritual community to people of all faiths. The resources on our site are offered to help people deepen their relationship with God during these times of great change and upheaval on the Earth.

Do you make money from this site?
We make the site available to everyone and accept donations from those who wish to help support our work.

What is the main revenue stream for this site?
Our members offer donations one time or monthly.

If you were to sell this site, how much do you think it would sell for?
This is a non-commercial site and we have no plans to sell it.

What are your plans with this site?
The resources on the site are growing based on the needs of the members, and also based on the spiritual guidance and inspiration we receive about how to move the site forward. Currently we're in the initial stages of submitting the site to directories and increasing the traffic of our partner site WorldBlessings.com which is search engine optimized and which refers people to WorldBlessings.net through its e-mail list. As membership grows, depending on the needs of the members we may expand the resources of the site to include teleconference guided meditation or spiritual guidance sessions. At some point when people begin creating local spiritual support groups, we may travel to offer support these groups.

What sites are your biggest competitors?
We consider other like-minded spiritual sites to be partners in our spiritual mission of supporting the transformation of the Earth.

Do you rank well in search engines for this site? If yes, for what search terms?
WorldBlessngs.net uses a software package that doesn't provide the data on search terms and ranking. We had 6277 visits last month but I haven't yet taken the time to analyze the traffic. Our partner site WorldBlessings.com, which refers people to WorldBlessings.net, is ranked in the top 10 of one or more of the major search engines (Google, MSN, Ask, Yahoo) for these keywords:
daily blessings
daily blessings rss
daily inspiration
dally reading and meditation
healing properties of color
healing with gem stones
online spiritual counseling
recommend world blessings
request daily blessings
sound color healing
spiritual healing blog
syndicate world blessings
world blessings donor
intuitive spiritual counseling (ranked 12th)
daily inspiration (ranked 14th)

How have you promoted this site in the past?
We began offering spiritual guidance messages via an e-mail list on WorldBlessings.com in June of 2005. Friends of ours told their friends about it, and the list grew. Some people found the e-mail list through WorldBlessings.com . When WorldBlessings.net opened, we began publishing the guidance messages on the new site, and sending our e-mail subscribers to the new site. We just started site promotion recently by submitting to search engines and directories.

Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
By encouraging our members to share our RSS feed of spiritual guidance messages which can be syndicated on other sites. Also by sharing our articles, we can give people a code to syndicate individual articles for publication on their sites, and will submit articles to relevant sites. I've had an idea to use web decals, perhaps making a bulk purchase and sending one to our next 100 new members for them to put on their car! Our members often share the site with others that they feel could benefit from it. Also by letting my online business contacts at Ryze and other places know about the site, many of them are spiritually minded and would be happy to tell others.

Build your own computer desk in one weekend

Your name?
Kathy

What is your site called?
Kathy's Desk Plan, Build a Computer Desk, in One Weekend, with One Sheet of Plywood, For Under $100.00

How old is the site?
It's been online at this URL since December 2005. But the same content was online at a Geocities site before that. Sorry, not sure when I put that online.

What is the one unique feature of this site?
Low cost simple do it yourself project. I couldn't find any free online plan comparable to mine.

Do you make money from this site?
I do make a very small amount from the the Adsense on it. Originally I put the plan online for free at the Geeocities location. I switched to my own domain after someone told me about Adsense. It was not my intent to make a profit initially. But Geocities was making a profit from my idea and not sharing with me. So I switched to my own domain and Adsense. If somebody's going to make a profit from my idea, they should share some of it with me.

What is the main revenue stream for this site?
The Adsense ads.

If you were to sell this site, how much do you think it would sell for?
First, I have no intention of selling it. Second, I doubt anyone would buy it, LOL. I guess the value would be about $100.00, but that is really a wild guess on my part.

What are your plans with this site?
I plan to add instructions for other projects of mine, a picnic table I designed & built, a play center I built for my daughter, etc. They all have one common thread; I wanted something sturdy, and couldn't find a well built sturdy item to buy for a reasonable price, so I had to design & build my own.

What sites are your biggest competitors?
There are a couple of sites that offer free woodworking plans, I have links to them, and don't really consider them competitors.

Do you rank well in search engines for this site? If yes, for what search terms?
I think so Search "build computer desk", on Google it comes up on page 8, on MSN it shows up in the first page.

How have you promoted this site in the past?
I asked for links from woodworkers free plan directories. A few of them asked for reciprocal links, & I did that.

Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
I really don't have BIG plans. If I see a way to promote it, on forums for example, I will. I hope that over time people will link to the site naturally.
