2007: After 7 years away from The Free Graphics Store engaged with other
projects, we're coming back! Quite a lot has changed over the last
7 years - not just with the Net but with web design as a whole - and in 2008
we'll be completely making over our site to accommodate this.
In the meantime,
we've had to temporarily turn off this section of our site (ie your
ability to add your own site to our Resources Directory) while we weed dead
links out of the Directory and make some adjustments to it.
for any inconvenience this might cause. But please look for an announcement
on our web site when this feature is reinstated in early 2008.
How To Add Your Site
The Free Graphics
Store's Resource Directory is a comprehensive one-stop guide to
everything available online to enhance or extend a web site. It doesn't
matter whether it's freeware, shareware, trialware or fully commercial products
or services - if your site offers something worthwhile in this area, acceptance
in the directory is almost guaranteed.
We also list
personal home pages as well as commercial and not-for-profit sites. About
the only sites we reject are those which have no
connection to our subject area or those which contain (or link to)
objectionable material. But if you're in any doubt about whether your site
just ask us!
How To List Your
To list your
site for best results, you should first check to be sure we don't already
list you. Then - if we don't - you should select the most appropriate
major category that best describes the subject area your site falls under
(or feel free to suggest a new one). After this, fill in the remaining details
we need to know and click the "Submit URL" button when you're done.
Simple! We'll review your site in person and let you know the
outcome by email. This usually occurs within a few business days, and never
longer than week.
Since many sites can be searched for using a wide variety of terms, you can
(and should) include up to 15 keywords that adequately describe what
you do. Please separate your keywords with spaces, not
graphics site which offers a broad range of graphics but specialises in dogs
and cats might want to be listed in the Web Graphics category under "General
Collections" but might also want to be found whenever anyone was searching
for one of its specialties. Appropriate keywords would be: dogs cats bullets
buttons backgrounds graphics animations rules lines rulers pointers dots
Can I List More
Some sites really
do fit into more than one category. We're sympathetic to this
AND be available for web authoring work. Or you may be a software manufacturer
with three different products, and people may search for you by either your
company name and/or individual product names.
In such cases,
we do think it would be appropriate to list your site (or products)
under the different categories that apply. Naturally, we'll review your listings
in person and decide if they're appropriate or not in the circumstances.
I've Moved My
Site! Can I Change..?
We spider our
database once a month to ensure all listings are current and delete
any sites that turn up as "missing". So if you move your site after you've
listed with us and neglect to let us know, your entry will be erased
from the Resources Directory soon afterwards.
You can preserve
your listing - or update it, if you site's content changes - by filling in
a Change Request form. You'll be sent the URL for this form by email
after your listing is accepted. If you've lost your email, though, you can
ask us for the URL.
