Site of the Month Guidelines|
What's Required |
Nominate a Site
Partnership is the core of GLIN, and toward that end we regularly highlight the web sites of our regional partners.
Being a Site of the Month partner entails ensuring seamless integration of resources between our two web sites. GLIN content is then a pathway to your site and vice-versa.
Being featured as GLIN Site of the Month is a great opportunity to bring more users to your site. GLIN Site of the Month partners typically see a measurable increase in traffic on their home page and are also contributing to increased usage of GLIN.
If selected, your agency's webmaster and the GLIN webmaster will work together to ensure as many mutual links as possible between like information on the two web sites. This way people will find information from your site throughout GLIN's different topical pages and vice versa. In addition to making reciprocating links, your agency will need to do the following:
- Include a GLIN logo and the words "A Great Lakes Information Network partner" (with a link back to GLIN) at the bottom of your home page.
- Supply a brief paragraph about your agency and web site for inclusion on the GLIN Site of the Month page, where we will announce the Site of the Month designation on the first day of the month. Ideas for additional publicity (press releases, etc.) for your web site and GLIN are welcome and encouraged.
- Place the GLIN Site of the Month logo (with a link back to GLIN) on your homepage for the designated month. The logo should be kept close to the same size, so the type is readable. Since this is an award for your site, we encourage you to place the logo as high on your home page as possible.
- As you add new information to your site, keep GLIN staff informed so we can continue to publicize your information throughout the regional network.
