No clue Bob. All I know is that we are listed on some 100+ websites that deal with seaplanes.
I'd not be opposed to refer to another site or forum, it just needs to be a mutual benefit and be non competitive.
Lenny and I link to each other and post on each others forums.
The Greenville Seaplane Fly In links to us, Oshkosh Seaplane Base links to us, a couple dozen regional associations link to us. People can find us on EAA, AOPA and some other large associations, too. We're a member of the Type Club Coalition from EAA, they link to us. The only website that has always avoided linking to this forum is SPA's and that despite bringing it up on occasion with the Captains.
Its called Referral Marketing. You remember me linking to N72
, when the Warwick website was redone. I took some 20+ links off of our listing after we had sent 20K+ visitors each to their pages. If a guy offering runway matting (!) makes it on the list as a "valuable seaplane site" list and this forum does not, one has to giggle. I know because I am not the only one who noticed right away. For a while I had a link to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
on our forum. As a self declared ordained minister in this church, I am proud to advertise them. Wanna test how long it takes me to get a link to Seaplaneforum.com onto their website?The Gliderforum.com Link Listing
is such a system.
Things like this counter fragmentation and division, too.
Lets go back to the topic of OSH and see how many pictures and stories will be shared.
Supposedly PK Floats will be taking orders for new floats starting September 2015.
Funny - The Husky on their website is the very airplane I photographed in 2010 for our first ever Seaplaneforum.com Logo.
