First, this is not delivered with any anger, drama, or animosity, whatsoever. :-) I think that most members who do this, do it 100% innocently. Please do not lift the tips from this site.
We work very hard to provide great tips for our members and visitors. We actually focus on offering new tips, that we've not seen on any other Ning site. Not to say that all of our tips are original, but we sure try.
Please give your friends and members the link to our Tip Section, instead of copying/pasting to your website. It's just wrong. There are exceptions. Please read paragraph at bottom of this Discussion.
We do this to help out fellow Ning Network Creators, and to gain hits and traffic to the Ning Directory. The more hits/traffic, the better our rankings. The better our rankings and higher our Search Engine keyword positions go, the more your links/networks are noticed and promoted. This is all a Team Effort, totally.
Let's face it. None of us could do this alone.
Based on my emails, I think most of our active members already see the difference that the Ning Directory Team (all of us) has made for their Ning Networks.
Thank you for understanding,
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO PASTE TIPS ON YOUR NING NETWORK?
1. If you have a Ning Network that does not target or cater to other Ning Networks.
2. If you need tips that will help your members.
3. When possible, please use our link and tip logo.
If you don't mind your members knowing you are a Ning powered Network: all we ask, please give a link back to us, using our Tip Logo
. If you are a premium Ning Network, and don't want members to know you are powered by Ning, no problem. Use the tips.
Please see attached text file for Tip Logo/Link code. Then, you won't have to type the code on your site.
