There's a lot of complaining and pointing fingers on this forum but for those business owners who actually realize that running a business takes hard work, dedication, research, and marketing your products please join us at:

Top 100 OLA Houses

In the first 2 weeks of creating the site we have received over 1225 hits & had 52 members register. We would be happy to have you join our family!

As far as those calling OLA a pyramid scheme or other such nonsense...I personally don't choose to put all of my eggs in one basket. Expecting a company to do all your work for you is foolish. It is your job as a business owner to list your items, yes, but also market them. Listing a couple of items on OLA and then coming back a month later to see if they "did their job" by getting sales for you is not only ignorant thinking but a waste of $8.00.

I personally have spent more money on eBay fees in 1 MONTH than I have for entire YEARLY membership for OLA. Every day I am making money on OLA and my website. And the best part is, NO listing fees, NO final value fees, & NO eBay telling me I can't post my website link in my auctions. In fact, there's a nice little space left for just that information.

So for those that are on OLA and happy to be there like me...let's help each other out! The more traffic we drive back to this site, the more hits we all get! We also have paid advertising for those without OLA Stores.

Would you please share your OLA seller name so we may verify you claims? If they are true and can be verified, that would be wonderful!

Innerpuppie, you can visit treasuresgoround's listings at OLA here:
http://www.onlineauction.com/store/treasuresgoround

I guess eBay didn't appreciate the links to OnlineAuctions.com from their "About Me" page, I plucked the link from Google's cache - the "About Me" page at eBay currently throws an error.

What she is doing does NOT take you to OLA but another URL.
***********************************************************

How would you like to drive more traffic from targeted visitors to your website or online business? When you purchase advertising with us you will be able to check stats, change your banner, purchase additional impressions at any time, and more!

Top 100 OLA Houses

Welcome to the Top 100 OLA Houses! If you're a registered member of onlineauction.com and would like to see your auctions or OLA store get more traffic you have definitely come to the right place. Click on "Add Your Site" to get started.

We also offer several paid advertising options to anyone with a family friendly website. Click on any "Advertise Here" button to be taken to our store for purchase.

HOW IT WORKS:

After you submit your website to our list proceed to MEMBER LOGIN where you will be able to retrieve your "banner code" for linking back to us. There are several banners for you to choose from.

IMPORTANT: Your ranking on our Top 100 List is based upon how much traffic you send to us via this banner code. (You may copy and paste your banner code anywhere you like; Your website, blogs, myspace pages, etc. Get creative!)

REQUIREMENTS:

Your link must be an OLA House[/b] (OnlineAuction.com Store)
Your link must be family friendly with NO adult content or offensive material.
* Any link that does not meet these requirements will be deactivated.[/b]
***************************************************

From what I understand, you have to have an OLA house in order to even get in the door and then you don't stay in the top 100 unless you drive people to HER SITE where people are told that FOR A FEE they can get some advertising just like YOU but THEY will have to pay.

Also, in order to have an OLA house you have to plunk down the 200 bucks. Eight dollars a month DOES NOT get you an OLA house.

Gee, is everything connected to OLA less than represented? At first I thought this was a good deal until, well, hey...read for yourselves.

innerpuppie........."What she is doing does NOT take you to OLA but another URL."

That was obvious when I read the contents of the link. (I also signed up as a buyer on Online Auctions after reviewing the items of many of the sellers on that link.)

This is an acceptable method of advertising that many, many sellers use in order to promote their auctions and stores. It was posted here in an "Online Auctions thread". What are you objecting to?

when you say:

"From what I understand, you have to have an OLA house in order to even get in the door and then you don't stay in the top 100 unless you drive people to HER SITE where people are told that FOR A FEE they can get some advertising just like YOU but THEY will have to pay."

I read it differently. What I read is that your ranking in the the top 100 depends upon the amount of traffic you drive to the site.

In order to be in the top 100 of the OLA houses you have to have an OLA house and you can't have an OLA house unless you sign up as a Founding Member which costs nearly 200 dollars. This little gimmick helps OLA sell more Founding Memberships.

Eight sales in six months is darned good for OLA!

Oh, I see, a "House" is a Store; an Online store, to be specific!!! lol lol lol

So, how many Houses, that are actually Online Stores, are there? More than 100?

That little gimmick wouldn't entice me to become a Founding Member at a rate of nearly $200.00.

LOL

My Top 100 List isn't a GIMMICK to get people to sign up to be a founding member. It's a place for people who are already members of onlineauction.com to gain free advertising to their OLA Houses or auctions.

I signed up for OLA several months ago but only recently starting using their services as I was busy with too many other avenues to really devote enough time. If you actually LOOK at my sales you will see that the majority of them occured in just the last 2 weeks. Most of my sales actually occur on my website.

As RecycleBin pointed out, I never once claimed my link was affiliated with onlineauction.com. It's simply a place for those who are members to join for some free advertising. Yes, I do offer paid advertising as an option, as do many other free advertising sites. And yes, you have to have an OLA House to join the site...but innerpuppy, if you're feeling left out I have a "Top 100 Home & Garden Sites" list where any website can join! LOL


That is all I'm going to say about this matter. I do not need your approval. Thank you, RecycleBin for actually researching the topic before responding. Your answers were educated and although you don't see value in purchasing a founding membership I respect your comments. I am not here, nor did I join OLA, just to get people to buy a founding membership for my benefit. I personally spent more money on eBay in 1 month than it cost for an entire year with OLA, so it only made sense for me to try it out. But not everyone feels the same, and I truly respect those who want to research things for themselves.

This will probably be one of my last posts on this site. If I wanted drama & negativity, I'd post on eBay. LOL
