What are the twelve catagories?
Or do we even need to specify a catagory?

[edit]Now the catagories are easy to find. My bad for replying so soon![/edit]

Ha what a way to earn frih$ lol...I will submit mine when it gets accepted in the near future

Wouldn't it be more logical to finish the new design (assuming that one will ever get finished Wink) before creating new sections?

I know how you feel...
What's up with that?
Has anyone succesfully registered? What domain did you use?
Blaster
I told bondings about it. I think something is wrong. So we must wait....
Bondings
It should be fixed now. I apparantly didn't upload the latest version of the template causing the domain variable not to be recognized and hence the request rejected because the domain was to short/empty. My apologies for this, it is getting very late for me. Wink

Edit, Blaster requested, so it should work fine now. Very Happy
Blaster
Yea it works now. Thanks for all of that help. I think i may have been the first to sign up Very Happy

Edit: I was the first to register. I feel happy. Very Happy

You basically can advertise your webiste that you have hosted on Frihost in this Directory. You pay 50FriH and you get it in the directory. People look at the directory to find sites sometimes and if they looking for your site category they click your link and you have another visitor to your site.
Blaster
Bondings said for the first month or what ever it is free Very Happy

@ n0obie you are not going to be rejecting my sumission anytime soon. Wink
Now to wait untill bondings gets the sites and starts listing them.

I'll be starting the coding for the actual directory pretty soon. I'll provide more details about it once it's ready.

The requests for listing will be free till the end of the month or a bit longer. You only need to request once.

Nice... Very Happy
i hope it's search engine bot friendly and have good pagerank soon. so we can get nice google page rank too shared by the directory.

good luck with the new project Wink .

Oh Thank you..

By the way, how can a submission like this improve our pagerank or something

It is NOT a direct link. and google only scans for direct links.

If there is a redirect like in here, your pagerank will NOT improve

You will of course get more visitors through the links but that is about it

When I'll actually see my site in the directory?

I am seeing mine right now..

I applied around 12 hours ago.

OH no, one has to give a description that pleases n4l too, as if getting a good description wasnt going to be enough

@godamn64 & scorpio
You page ranking will benifit a bit, or i should say visitors will increase for sure. And since frihost has a PR of just 5/10, so dont expect your PR to gor through the roof. Also content does matter

@Bondings why only one subbmission per account, why not more. I have a forum and blog so why not allow more subbmissions. Especially since you are charging FRIH$s 50 as a one time submission fee.

Also what if I want to change my domain name or say completely change the listing entry.
Helios
Only 50 frih? Razz
babumuchhala
Helios wrote:

OH ya u heard it right.

I do thinks too less, since now one can get as much as 4 FRIH$s per post compared to what we used to get a measy 2 or if the post was ultra long then 3 almost a year ago.

So the bottom line is, at the current rate of earnings FRIH$ 50 is waaaaaaaaaay tooooo less. Make it atleast FRIH$ 100/submission, thats because i want multiple submissions enabled Razz
Helios
200 Frih at least!
Bondings
@babumuchhala, multiple submissions (maybe something like 3) are something I will certainly think about. However it creates the problem of having to check for duplicate domains/websites and can create unhealthy competition for other websites.

@godam64, it's not meant to be search engine friendly. It wouldn't be a good idea to link to hundreds of websites on the same ip-range (c-class), certainly with quite a few sites linking back to Frihost. And google is becoming very strict on this. A link from a banned website wouldn't help you either. Also, the clicks are counted and there is no way to do that with a direct link.
Even if you won't get any pagerank, search engines will crawl and count the link. Also, the url will be displayed on the page, and some search engines (msn) count that one as a normal link.

@Helios, I currently only finished a small part of the index page, the rest should follow soon.
Blaster
And mine is first Very Happy

It is looking a lot better now that you actually have sites there.
Marston
Just to spoil things - all of the links have the nofollow rel attribute. Don't expect a Google page rank increase from the FriHost directory.

Bit of a jip... Crying or Very sad
nam_siddharth
My website is under Top 10 (7th position).
Blaster
and mine is first. Razz

I have a questiong about the top10 how is that going to work. Is it just going to stay like that or go by most page hits?
Bondings
Marston wrote:

I might remove that attribute, but the links aren't direct so you won't get any pagerank. Google doesn't like links to websites on the same ip-address, certainly not if there are a lot of them. I don't want to risk being banned.
n0obie4life
Don't do it if you might get banned Bondings..

A few question remain Unanswered:

  1. What about edditing?
    I already want to do a very tiny edit in my forums description Laughing

  2. How does the Top 10 Work currently?
    Have the current top 10 been put up by you or is it based on the actual hist they have recieved Rolling Eyes

  3. What about the pricing?
    Most of us here feel the prices have been kept too low Sad


I dont mind a "follow" or "no follow", as long as it keeps getting us visitors I am happy with it. I suppose the inflow of traffic will automatically result in increased PRs Very Happy

The directory is currently being built. You'll get more details when it's finished. It will be based on a 'bidding' system.

You forgot a lot of them tbh. Also, you aren't able to change it at the moment, unless while handling the request. People who want to change their descriptions will have to wait a bit. Also, I don't think one word is enough to justify a change. Wink
babumuchhala
Hmm... bondings instead of sheding light you put more questions in our mind Razz

What kind of bidding??? The more i pay the higher i go Shocked

Usually top 10 means the top 10 sites accessed via the directory or so, but then.... Rolling Eyes

Its based on a kind of links-per-click system. The more times your site is accessed on the Directory page the higher the chance of your site being in the Top Ten. Due to the fact that its not yet finished is why there is no formal information on it.
Blaster
ok that is pretty cool I like it. But can't people just keep clicking on it and make it up into a higher rank?
Bondings
Blaster wrote:

No, clicks do not and won't change your listing. Sorry for the confusion. It would be really easy to get your website to the top 10 that way. The clicks are an indication of how many visits you got from the directory.

The websites will be ranked by a bidding process. You will be able to bid frih$ for a higher placement every month. You will get more details about this when the first version of the directory is finished.

Of course that is right.

But the best way to earn money here and the fastest is by means of accepting ads or by offering and doing quality services.

Take dz9c as an xample .

So that is the fastest way to riches here.

I can belive that you dont' n0obie. But the point of bondings charging frih is to get you to post. ( That is what i belive at least) So it is all fair to mods. I know that they never use that button.

Currently N4L is less active than usual, but still active.

babumuchhala
So now the bidding process is in place (although the person on top is not the highest bidder Rolling Eyes ) in the top 12 list for some reason.

A few questions:

  1. What if my bid is not enough to make it to the top 12, will my FRIH$s be refunded ???
    I hope so because bidding means you pay only when you are the highest Very Happy

  2. When will multiple entries to the directory entries be started.???
    Since each subbmission will be screened by a mod, I dont think duplication of websites be anyproblem.

  3. What if I want to bid more???
    Also I think one should be able to see how much one has bid for his site in his account page itself Smile

No it is not a domain registration

This directory on frihost is like a telefone directory at home

Like the fone dir has names addresses and fone numbers of people, this directory here has the names and websites of people hosted on frihost

Scorpio
Quote:

Is there a difference between your Frihost site and the other one you have hosted here. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, if it is hosted here they allow you to submit any site.

But now you have to pay up I guess
Vrythramax
I have no site on my Frihost url and my other sites are each differant than the other. Thanks for the info Very Happy
Bondings
It doesn't need to be a .frih.net or .frihost.net subdomain. It just needs to be hosted on our servers as it's a directory of Frihost websites.

So if you have a domain hosted by us, then that one is allowed. The only thing I don't like is the "cloaking" ones as that are just hiding the 'real' url instead of replacing it as a real domain.

And it's still free, I haven't yet finished the coding of the directory. (didn't have enough time) As you might see, a lot of things are still missing, like the descriptions of the categories and the 50 frih$ cost. I'll make an announcement when it's finished.
Donutey
Is is just me or are there not a whole lot of sites listed?
Vrythramax
thank you Bondings...I'm pretty sure I can swing 50 FRIH$ Wink

1 more question if I may...are we allowed multiple submissions for differant sites? (and no, I do not use url masking or forwarding)
Donutey
only 53 entries??!! free(ish) directory listing doens't seem too attractive i guess... although I'm not sure if bondings has it set up where it will automatically add a site when it's requested... or if he has to do it manually.

Auto acceptance is not a possibility at all.

Because of the fact that spam submissions can not be excluded very easily

Is the bid money refunded if my bid is unsuccessful?

How many bids can one make?

Who does the money go to?

how will the winner be decided?

where will the winner be posted

how can we see the current leader in bidding?

What is the period of bidding?

Like do the highest bidder of this month remain on constant first spot throughout next month ?
PLease elaborate.

Do you have a FAQ page for the bidding?

if not when will you set one up?

thank you
n0obie4life
You aren't refunded any money.

The amount you bid, then it will be "stored", and your ranking on the account page will rise. Depending on the amount you paid (look at the fansites one, I paid 10 FRIH$ while mathiaus paid 50 FRIH$, so he get's a higher directory listing than me. But I get a higher listing than those who never paid. http://www.frihost.com/directory/category-3.php - you can see the amount we bid by clicking on "more info").

You can make as many as you want.

No where land. It just disappears.

No such thing.

The current leader is the one right at the top of the listing.

Well, on the Bid System, what you guys are saying that there will be competion even in the directories. Razz

On how much one bids, I feel I should have the freedom to bid any amount i wish right from 0.1 to 10000000000000000000 (if i have that much Wink) and not just 10,20,50 or their multiples Very Happy

Plus shouldnt I be able to see how much I have bid in the accounts page itself isnt it Rolling Eyes
n0obie4life
You do have the freedom to do so, just keep clicking on the amount you wish to bid (it'll just increase automatically). But please be reminded that the bids reset every month to zero Wink.

Well, I've told Bondings to add that (amount you've bidded). But for now, you need to go to the Directory, go to your listing and click on "[More Info]".

Yup I know that. But what if i feel i only want to bid say 45 FRIH$ for this month or say if i want to bid a 1000 FRIH$ for the month I wont like to keep hitting that 50 link again & again
Take the current thing in the Bids, I bid 10 FRIH$ but u too & have a rank above me in the top 12 & so if i could make it 11 FRIH$ i would be above your site. Or another thing could be to add a 5 FRIH$ bid Very Happy

if it gets reset to zero, then what site will remain at the top?

Since the fact will be that no one would have paid any money for the new month, whose site will be at the top

I should think it would, at least until someone bids any amount more than you did for the new month...then your standing would drop accordingly

Before flamming us, you should know that our Directory is only in BETA and there will definately be bugs as in all BETAs.

We're trying to find out why your entry was removed/not there.

manumiglani wrote:

Of course, we want to track who clicks on what, otherwise how would we know how many clicks were there?

There would be no point letting the bots follow it, you cannot even pagerank of it as it's just a redirect to your site.

manumiglani, if you think you are so good at coding, please, go start your own webhost, manage it, modify it, create your own directories and stuff. Coding isn't simple. Bondings is doing this because he's kind, he doesn't really make much money off Frihost. The ads here barely meet his costs, he has to pay out of his own pocket sometimes.

The directory coding is done by him and only him, naturally, there would be bugs.

Please, think before you flame anyone.
Bondings
manumiglani, your website is not removed from the directory. It's just that I didn't have enough time to work on it. I originally planned to have pages of 10 listings and your website is currently at 11. I removed the limit now and it is appearing again.

By the way, this link was always working. http://www.frihost.com/directory/site-33.php

I will most likely also make it possible to have up to 3 listings per person, they however all have to be hosted by Frihost.

About the "nofollow". There is no way I'm going to link directly from the frihost.com website to all those other websites. There is a good chance that google would ban us because of it (all on the same ip).

I was originally going to register a domain for the directory and put it there (and then link directly without the "nofollow" tag). However, the clicks wouldn't be counted anyway and I suppose it would have more or less the same problems.

May I ask why that would happen?

Like many sites have a number of links on their pages.

What causes google to ban them?

I did not comprehend the last line of the 2nd para.Kindly elaborate.

Also, what exactly is the nofollow tag used for?
is it related to the counting of clicks?

Thank you

I don't know about the banning thingy.

Because it was mentioned that its necessary to measur the no. of clicks only in the earlier para

n0obie4life wrote:

No, it actually does follow and sometimes even show the link if you search for them with "link:site". It just doesn't see it as a "vote" and doesn't (or not as much) transfer any pagerank.

Quote:

The problem is that all websites are on the same 2 ips, both in the same ip-range (c-class ip). Normally this happens very very rarely as there are so many different ip-addresses in the world.

Also, quite a few websites link back to Frihost. Those links are being devalued anyway if you compare it with one-way links.

When Google notices this, it will see it as suspicious and punish the website in question (=us). The punishment can even result in a complete ban or just by ranking us much lower. I really can't risk it.

About the clicks, well if you have a direct link (the only ones counted as a "vote" or real link, the "nofollow" isn't really needed in this case) then you aren't able to count the clicks. Like if I link to xxx.frihost.net . The browser just requests xxx.frihost.net and the website linking to it doesn't even know that.

We are just linking, right?

Oh, but it's certainly not illegal. But there are a lot of things that aren't illegal and that can get you banned from the google index. Like hidden text or linking to "bad neighbourhoods", like spammy websites or link farms.

The thing is, that Google likes natural links. Take 2 random websites on the internet, the chance they are on the same ip is really small to unexistant. If there are 100 sites on the same ip, then that's a bit too suspicious.

It's just a way to keep their pagerank system alive and to avoid spam/low quality websites and scrapers.

How could I know that the Directory is in BETA ?

http://www.frihost.com/directory/ It is the homepage of the Frihost Forum Directory and no information is provided there about the directory being alpha, in beta.

Well the bondings's announcement about the opening of frihost directoryalso does not state that the directory is in beta or some thing. It just says that its need to be completed that does not specify that directory is in beta. It only specifies that the directory is in still to be completed.

First off, I thought it was in the queue because that's the standard reply to everyone (at least for me, and I didn't know that the bug existed at that time of posting)

Then you said that you were sure you were accepted, so I checked.

Yes, it's there, so I did some research, played around with the ids for the request and found out (and I spent almost 45 minutes trying to do that for you) it's on the second page of the directory (which doesn't exist at that time of posting).

Then you asked again, I told you I didn't have time to talk to Bondings about it.

Quote:

Definately not. We don't pick mods based on that. We have mods all around the world. Australia, India, Europe, America.

Quote:
I think there should be a rule in the Frihost Forum rules page ( I am sorry I should be posting this in suggestions forum ) that mods can break the rules whenever they like because they do that more often than anyone else. They post dam off topic replies that are very irritating. They closed the topics which should not be closed and the topic that should be closed are always open. I know that only mods can decide that according to frihost forum rules. Can Bondings please reveal the factors on which mods are decided however he can hide if he wish to. I think its basically based on regional and family factors. However, I can be wrong as always.


Quote:
I can give truly give you many examples of what I have just said where the mods of Frihost just behaved childish ( not all of them ) and spread their crap all over the frihost forum.


I don't know where you can find this, we seldom go offtopic.

Nothing goes with examples. We have our reasons for closing topics. That's for sure.

The factors that caused you to drop to 11th place is because of the bidding system. Just put in something like 10 FRIH$ on your listing and you'll be up there.

This can be done through the account page - http://www.frihost.com/account.php

"Just because it is incomplete it does not mean it is in beta"

Beta means
Quote:
The second stage a software program goes through before a final is released. Software undergoes rigorous testing until it is ready to be released.


That does not mean the software is incomplete.
It means it has some bugs, but the coding is done.

Since you have mentioned it is incomplete, it does not mean it is being tested.
It means *"in software terms" * that the coding is not complete

Before completion of coding no one can release a beta or an alpha for that matter.
n0obie4life
scorpio, a BETA means, the core coding is complete. But not the whole thing is complete and there would be bugs.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_version#Beta

Quote:
A beta version or beta release usually represents the first version of a computer program that implements all required features although additional features may be added. It is likely to be unstable but useful for internal demonstrations and previews to select customers, but not yet ready for release. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, as a technical preview (TP) or as an early access.

Often this stage begins when the developers announce a feature freeze on the product, indicating that no more features requirements will be accepted for this version of the product. Only software issues, or bugs and unimplemented features will be addressed.

Beta versions stand at an intermediate step in the full development cycle. Developers release them to a group of beta testers (sometimes the general public) for a user test. The testers report any bugs that they found and sometimes minor features they would like to see in the final version.


When we released the Directory, it didn't have the auction system and was EXTREMELY basic. We added the Auction system now and it's rather limited to be honest (I want to test something, but I don't want to "destroy" my FRIH$ Razz). Such as the fact that you need to keep pressing the FRIH$ and you cannot bid something like "26 FRIH$".

As pointed out in the Wikipedia link too, Windows Vista is in BETA, are you telling me that it's code is not complete? It's rather complete, to be frank, it's just bugfixes, testing, and etc now Wink.

And scorpio, I thought you go to the phpBB forums, they have lots of [BETA] mods in the development forum. You should know that these BETA mods have their code and etc, but they are buggy..I thought you knew that..

Added the fact it's in BETA to the announcement so there can now be no confusion. (Hope Bondings doesn't mind)

The number of clicks has nothing to do with the listing. The listings are ordered by the bidding amount. If there is no bid available, then the database outputs the listings in a default order, it is by id, so the people who requested first, will be put higher.

If you would exchange links with 100 websites with the same ip, then yes you are at risk. If it's just a few link exchanges, then please don't worry about it.

Actually the value of a post is between 0 and 4 frih$..

it is not updated there..

Anyway, you can go to www.frihost.com/forums/account.php

Here you can bid certain frih$ in order to get your listing into the top 12 on the right side of the main directory page.

Of course your bid must be among the top 12 bids made for your site to be displayed there
johanfh
Hmm, you're right about the between 0 and 4. I tried for the fun of it to create some sort of comparisionlist of the worth of a FRI$. But that's off-topic, so I won't continue this. Embarassed

About the directory: i think it's a really great idea. There are a lot of frihosters which you talk to at the forums and now you get to know their sites also. You can look in the dir who created a site in the same category and share info and knowledge. That's a nice improvement of the community-idea.

Its free for now unless you are bidding. Like i already spent almost 500 frih$ to get on top. So free isn't that bad. Very Happy

Blaster, just a tip, don't spend all your frih$ in one month. There will be other months with maybe a lot more traffic to get. Wink

Yea good point. I will get it back though. Yea i should stop now. Stupid mathiaus. He made it go that high. I shaw yell at him the next time he is online. Wink

Discussion about this announcement.

Dear Sir!
Directory submissions is a great deal for all of webmasters.
Could you , please, tell us: why do you not prefer Free Directory Submissions ?
I am not sure, that you you are right.
You can see a lot of internet directores free of chage...
Am I right? Very Happy

It is not a question of free or not-free here.

He asks you to pay 50Frih$ for a submission, not 50US$, this is just to ensure that you are active enough.

50 frih$ is not too much at all.

Every active user has that much or more than that.

You just have to post meaningfully and usefully and not spam.

Although I am all for reform here at FriHost, I agree that an overhaul of the template should have been completed first.

...and I'm not sure I really am for the exact categorization used here. Sure. It's great at organizing every possible subject in the sun. That's just dandy. Except. There is no conversing going on. There are too many people barraging each topic scavanging for something they can write in payment for websites in a small amount of time. Organize the boards into personality types, with catregories under each of those. Hey, why not give some Mods some boards or "bands/gangs" of their own. Make it personal for God's sake before we cycle through another 100 memebers.

Hell, I don't even know why I'm writing this... no one will read it anyways.

I'm guessing Bondings is gonna manually reset the bidding, because it's june 1st and it hasn't reset yet.
Blaster
Well you must remember there are differnt time zones. I am in GMT -4 for example and it is still the 31st. So who knows. It may be a little bit of time.
TeenZine
Right I accedently messed up and saw it was the 1st on the frihost fourm so I assumed it was reset and bid something i forgot the exact amount. How bad for me im so sad Sad
Donutey
yea, that's where i saw the time, on the forum, so i assumed that was when it would be reset... aw well...

EDIT:

It's June 2nd !! lol...

There should be a category titled: "Education" or "academics".

I actually like that idea.

I dont care that bondings didn't reset it yet. That just means that it is longer for me to be up there. Very Happy

But i really like that idea. I think bondings should make that topic.

how many sites can we put in the directory? I have like 5 sites hosted @ frihost... can I only put one up?

At the moment you can't get your site link on the home page. The current sites will be replaced in the future but Bondnings has made no decisions yet on when or by which sites. You can however list your site in the directory ( http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-35393.html ).


Umm Mathius told me do do this I didnt really get what he meant here are some details. #Domain: http://www.clan-nda.frih.net/

You have to submit it yourself through the accounts page: http://www.frihost.com/forums/account.php I don't think the way its handled has changed.
Bondings
Oh and the frih$ should be reset pretty soon as we're approaching the end of the month.
TeenZine
