I agree its a great idea. The thing is you don't buy a google ad. You pay for key word search optimization. (called paid search) You have no guarantee it would show up on the cc.net page. It is all search based, not page based.

Luckily there are few selling products to cushings dogs so it would not be asexpensive. Number of paying advertisers determines the price. This is why I want to discuss it with our technoid at work.

I don't do this work but I manage his efforts and the ad bills. I am glad to help if you want.

You are right that the crawlers take more time - however there are tricks to speed it up. Neither one of these solutions would bring people to the k9d site tomorrow.

Thank you Natalie. I'm sure there are a lot of cush parents that are freaking, cc.net is a lifeline to so many.

Hi Alison , we miss your wisdom.

From what I read in the info re Google Ads you can stipulate where you want it placed and pay per click or pay at a flat rate I think.

I'll go have a look again.

Here's the link to the info (meant to put it in in previous post - duh!): https://www.google.com/accounts/Serv...n_AU-et-adsctr

I've only skimmed this but it looks like you can target what sites on which you want your ads:https://adwords.google.com.au/suppor...y?answer=18265

There's a page in the Pet Diabetes Wiki dealing with Cushing's because it's often found along with DM. I can change the link on that page to this board if you like. Then people who are reading there will know where to find you now.

Kathy

Adding--when I Google "canine cushings board" one of the hits on the first page is to the Pet Diabetes Wiki page on Cushing's:

"Cushing's disease - Pet Diabetes
"Another health problem for canine Cushing's patients is high blood pressure ... Canine Cushing's Message Board where help and support are available. ..."

http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Cushing's_disease

At present, the link is to cc.net.

Hey Kathy! Yes, that would be very helpful, I think. The Pet Diabetes Wiki site does indeed come up as one of the first 5 listed sites when I google "canine cushings message board".

I'm also thinking that it's still very possible that cc.net will be back up and running fairly soon. It's only been down for three or four days and I am quite sure that regular backups have been done there ever since its inception, so once the problem is figured out, it shouldn't be hard for the owner to restore the message board with all posts and threads and photos etc intact.

You can always change the link at the Wiki site back to cc.net if and when the cc.net site is back up and running, of course.

Meanwhile, let's everyone do our best to pass the word on to anyone we have contact info for, to let them know that Nat has set up a temporary meeting place for us here.

Kathy, maybe I'm looking in a different spot on the Wiki page, but at the bottom of the page, under Dogs, it says "Canine Cushing's Message Board where help and support are available. " and the link still seems to point to cc.net. ??

I'm looking here:

http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Cushing's_disease

A weird thing - don't know if it matters though. I went to the Wiki and clicked on the link and ended up here BUT I wasn't logged in (I have clicked "Remember Me"). I was still logged in on another tab/window though.

Try it again Cushy - it works for me - unless there are two links and each of us has found the other one. The not-logged-in thing is strange though.
