Link Rotation Uses

The longer I use the HomeBizRotator rotator script, the more uses I find for it and the more I see others using it in different ways.

Here are two of the things I see link rotation used for.

1.  Network Marketing (MLM) downline building.  I have had a number of customer buy the rotating links script to help them build their MLM downline.

They would have their downlines buy a spot in an advertising coop.  The coop leader would purchase advertising in bulk, some have even purchased radio advertising.  The coop manager provides the advertising company one link to send the traffic to.  As traffic comes to the rotator link, each coop members MLM site is brought up in order.

As website visitors join the MLM, they are placed in the coop members downline as well as the coop leaders downline.  The individual coop members are happy and get excited as they get new downline members with little work.  The coop manager gets new members placed in his downline by helping his downline, with some work but with little money out of pocket.

2.  For testing multiple websites or offers.  Have you ever bought advertising, and sent it to one website that just didn’t convert well, then couldn’t change the destination site?  It’s frustrating as you see your money being wasted on a product that does not convert.  Instead, if you send the traffic to a link rotation script, you can change out, or add new links to rotate at any time.  You have more control over where your traffic is going to end up.  You can also test different websites or offers to find the best converting products.

I always suggest you protect your links going out in your ebooks or emails.  Use a link rotation URL in your ebooks or emails, so you can change the destination website on your end.  Once the email is sent, or the ebook is distributed, you can’t bring those ebooks or emails back and change the links.

If you are using a link rotation script, like the HomeBizRotator, you can change the final destination links on your end.  Products and companies change links, and disappear all the time.  Protect your links so you can easily change them on your end if you need to.

Next time I’ll talk more about some of the benefits of rotating links.

Link Rotator Script by HomeBizRotator

Welcome to the HomeBizRotator link rotator script blog.

What is a link rotator script?  A link rotator script is a tool that lets you send visitors to one URL, and the script will rotate to a different destination URL with every visit.

For example, you send traffic to a certain link, like http://homebizrotator.com/rotate .  Upon each visit you will see a different website is displayed in order:

Link1 – http://LOLFunTime.com
Link2 – http://rotatorscript.com
Link3 – http://MonthtoMonthMobile.com
Link1 – http://LOLFunTime.com
Link2 – http://rotatorscript.com
etc.

Why would you want to rotate links?

I found the need to rotate links when I wanted to do an advertising coop.  I wanted to collect a pool of money for advertising to get a special discounted rate.  Each member who participated in the coop, provided me with a fee for each coop spot.  Then, I would direct traffic from the traffic source to the rotator URL and each coop member would get visits to their web site.

Upon searching for a link rotation script, I could not find a script that did what I needed to do.  I did find a service that would do it for me, but there was a monthly fee associated to the service.  I didn’t want to pay a monthly fee, so I started looking for a rotation script.

Most link rotators that I found were random link rotator scripts.  I theory, if you have enough traffic every link in a random rotator script should get about the same amount of views.  But, I wanted to be sure that each coop member would get the same number of views and they to do this is with a sequential link rotator script.

So, I decided to build a script that would do what I needed it to do.  The HomeBizRotator website rotator script was born.

The rotator script was just what I needed or a coop link rotator, and worked very well.

I soon discovered several other uses for the link rotator script.

I finally started this blog to help educate you on the HomeBizRotator script, to handle support questions, and to let you know of new uses for the rotator script.

URL Rotator Updated Again

I have recently updated the HomeBizRotator URL rotator to give you the ability to upload a batch of urls all at once.

Previously, if you wanted to add multiple links, you would have needed to load each URL one at a time.  This could be rather time consuming if you were wanting to add a large number of links.

I had a user who was wanting to move away from his old random rotator to a sequential rotator script, plus he wanted the hit counting capability of my php rotator.

He was not thrilled about having to load the multiple links he was using in his old rotator, into the HomeBizRotator rotator script by hand.  So, I took his suggestion and created a batch link up-loader.

Now you simply copy your links from a text file, or from a spreadsheet, and past them into the rotator.  The rotator script will enable all links uploaded in batch mode, automatically name them, and have them set and ready to rotate.

If you would like to see the url batch update feature, you can access it via the php rotator, admin panel demo at:
http://homebizrotator.com/demo/admin/

You will need username: demo and password: demo123.

Feel free to batch upload some of your links and perhaps even get a little free traffic :-)

How much more will I charge for this addition to the link rotator script?  The price will remain the same.  My goal is to periodically update the script while keeping the same low price.

If you have previously purchased the rotator, you get this new feature by updating your script.

I love it when I am able to take suggestions from my customers, and add new features that they need.  That’s one of the reasons this URL rotator is so popular and just keeps getting better and better.

Co-op Rotator Software

Run your own advertising co-op using the HomeBizRotator Co-op Rotator Software.

One of the best ways to build a downline in MLM, or help affiliates promote your product, is to start an advertising co-op.

Each co-op member buys a spot in the co-op, and the pool of co-op money is used to buy advertising, hopefully in bulk for a good discount.

Then you give the advertising resource one URL that spreads the traffic between the websites of each individual co-op member.

Sounds simple enough.  The problem I had when I wanted to run my first co-op, is I couldn’t find a co-op rotator script.

I found a service that would rotate links for me, but if I wanted to use more than 5 links, they wanted to charge me a monthly fee.

I didn’t really want to do this because, I didn’t know how long it would take for all the advertising to flow the system.  I feared that I would have to pay the monthly co-op rotator service fee for several months.

I didn’t want to take the chance of having the last visitors to the co-op URL to trickle in after I had canceled the monthly co-op rotator service.  Yet, I didn’t want to pay a monthly fee indefinitely.

So, I knew the best choice for me was to purchase a co-op rotator script that I could run on my own website.  Then, I wouldn’t have to worry about how long it would take for all the co-op traffic to trickle in and I wouldn’t have to pay a monthly fee.  I would have total control of my co-op rotation, and I could run multiple co-ops for different products, using different advertising resources.

I was surprised to learn that a coop rotator software that did what I needed it to do, was not easy to find.  I found a few random rotator scripts, but I wanted to make sure all websites had the same number of visits, so I needed a sequential co-op rotator software.

I found a couple of sequential rotator scripts, but they were around $100, but I really didn’t want to spend that much to try my first co-op.  So, I built a coop rotator script myself :-)

The link rotator script worked so well for me, that I decided to let others have access to the software.  You can have your own, easy to use, co-op rotator software for a lot less than $100.

By the way, I would later come to realize that running my own coop rotator software had additional benefits.  The Alexa ranking, a calculation of how popular a website is, improved over time, and I could look at my web host stats for my rotator domain to see where the traffic was coming from.  This helped me to determine the best advertising resources.

If you are thinking of running some sort of advertising co-op, there is no reason not to run your own coop rotator script on your own web host.  The cost is low, and there are many benefits.
