Can someone recommend a template/theme ideal for an event management company? Need to do a website for a wedding banqueting hall service provider that cater for South Asian weddings.
Template should have html5 video player, slider, gallery pages, background audio playback or player on the page itself, Facebook linking etc…
Something like this:http://www.crownbanqueting.co.uk/
I’m sure ThemeForest have much, much better templates.
It’s plausible that users may have first visited another TF affiliate site and even when they come across your site, the tracking cookie will link back to the original site and not yours.
Your traffic needs to be highly targeted and your site needs to stand out from your competitors.
Last year, when I implemented the affiliate program on one of my sites, I had a high conversion rate reaching 100+ sales per month at peak, without really much promoting or huge traffic. Then the site got hit by Penguin.
I now have a new smaller site with substantially less traffic, but still with a good conversion rate.
I purchased a theme from ThemeForest nearly a year ago and used it to design a site to promote ThemeForest products as an affiliate. I also used a freelancer on here to write some unique articles for me. I was not doing too bad generating decent commissions within a short period of time.
I recently moved to a new web host with my own dedicated IP for my site and whilst going through my AWStats, I noticed that my site had double the amount of visitors during a given period. The visitors were being referred by a site with an unusual name. When I checked the site, lo and behold! an exact duplicate of my site. Upon close inspection, it seems like their domain points to our site as the email listed on it is our own.
The only reason I can think of why someone would want to do this is of negative SEO (excluding gross incompetence). Our site has slowly climbed in Google search listings and occupies a number of good positions. Having someone duplicate the exact content in it’s entirety, will in effect redflag our site as spam and may incur a severe penalty by Google.
So far, our site has not been effected in rankings. When I checked the domain in the Whois.net database, the registrar has opted for privacyprotect.org, to protect their anonymity.
I have two options for taking this site down:
1. Contact privacyprotect.org to point out abuse by their client.
2. Contact the abuser’s webhost and notify them of the IP hijacking.
Would it be prudent to contact Google and point out the duplication and request a takedown for the offending site? When should I do this?
Any pointers and advice would be greatly appreciated.
In the UK, you don’t have to pay VAT until your sales amount exceed a certain threshold. If you are within the EU, you might have a similar setup. Check to see if there is VAT in your country for digital goods.
Ooh, Thanks for the replies guys. Appreciate it!
I have created a collection of CSS3 buttons and want them to display in I.E correctly. I have tried the ‘PIE.htc’ fix, but it does not work for me, although, I think I may be missing something.
If you can help, please drop me a PM.
Am I missing something? I visited TF today and my account was signed off. When I tried to signin the Captcha was not displaying in I.E.. I had to signin with Firefox.
Oops, I overlooked that.
I’m not sure, why a comment box is not displaying in my profile? It might have something do with me not being an author on Envato Marketplaces, but rather an Affiliate and buyer.
Thanks for pointing this out, Virtuti.
Anyone interested can reply here and I will followup via ‘their’ comment box.
