Letting new visitors know we provide training courses

I never see the most downloaded image on my website. Well - hardly ever. Here it is:

PHP and MySQL courses - UK

Brash? Yes! Bright? Yes! It's an advertising link, to let people who arrive at our web site looking for technical information (and there are thousands a day) know that we can help them with training courses. But of course people don't want to be overrun with adverts so once the point has been made, more subtle links are provided on following pages.

The $_SERVER[HTTP_REFERER] variable in PHP tells all of our pages the URL of the page on which a link was clicked to bring them to our site, and for search engines, that includes the query string that they entered. A little simple analysis with regular expressions, and Robert's your father's brother (or should that be "Bob's your Uncle").

We have a series of about 10 images like these ...

Somewhere to stay in Melksham, Wiltshire, England

... in that case displayed to people who are searching for Melksham or hotel. If you want to see them in full technicolor (I HAVE warned you!) have a look here.

We have a script which shows you the most downloaded images from our site that I wrote a few weeks ago and if you want to see the source so that you can do something like this, it's here.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
