I have thought about it. But I am in a somewhat rural area and I am not sure it would work well for me. I mean in order for it to work, people have to actually look it up.

We receive over 8000 visitors a day. We've had some facilities that are still with us since 2003. As a bonus, if you have a website being listed on Daycare.com and place your website link on your advertisement, it will actually help your website to be indexed higher in search results because of Daycare.com's prominence in the field since 1997. That's a value in itself.

There are many benefits to being in our registry. Give it a try and see if you get the results you want. You can always turn on and off the account as needed. The only difference is that in "expired mode" a listing will only "periodically" come up in our searches.

If anyone signs up from this thread, I will add another three months if you PM me. You can signup here: https://daycare.com/php/start_new_signup.php

Here is what I will do for our members that sign up. I will add three months listing plus give you Premium Placement and also the Pictures option. These are usually at an extra cost but I'll throw all of those in for free. It is important that you PM me and let me know the name of the listing. We have over 200,000 facilities on Daycare.com and I would need to manually search your listing in order to upgrade it.

Here is one member that just signed up today and is resolving a the top of searches for her area:

I submitted my listing and then realized I made a typo. Is there a way to edit the listing after it is submitted? Thanks!

If you log in with the username and pass you created, it'll show "edit profile" on the top, that's where you can edit your info.

I will resend your password information so that you can access your listing through your control panel. Let me know if you were able to update as needed.

Yes it is. Sign up and let me know here in the forum so that I can upgrade you.

Also, for every member that wants a vanity email address, let me know. I've seen some very long and confusing email addresses that are not memorable. If you want to use NurseJackie@Daycare.com let me know. I can point it to your current email address. There are members here that I set that up for previously. Let me know if anyone is interested and wants more information. It's a free service like the forum.

Yes, but its even better than that. gmail, yahoo and other email providers allow you to use a vanity email address "in place" of theirs. It will actually send and receive as your new address. So in essence you would have two email addresses to use. One for your gmail users and one for your daycare.

I can simply have it forward to your current email, or you can set it up with your provider to act as your email system. Its your choice. I kinda like the look and sound of ThriftyLady@Daycare.com

Here is a previous thread that may help you understand the benefits. http://daycare.com/forum/showthread.php?t=66227

As a parent this site is the first one that popped up for me when I was searching for child care in my local area. I am sure I am not the only person that has found wonderful child care from this page.

Thank you. Daycare.com is very well indexed by the search engines. We've been in business for almost 20 years. Consider registering on this forum as a member.

On an interesting note, we've have many members here take advantage of signing up for this offer.

We actually have two members that with the same business name but in different states. One in Michigan and one in California. Now that is rare.

You would have needed to let me know the name of the facility. PM me the phone number and name so I can locate it. I will give you the options that I offered for free as long as you continue your basic listing with us.

Thumbs up

I wanted to thank you for all the help and information I have found on this website. It has really helped us.
My wife ran a daycare in Illinois for 12 years and was advertised only by word of mouth. It is so different being in a totally new state not knowing anybody here trying to find kids.
We want to list the daycare on this website. I had seen posts from a while back where you had offered some deals for first timers advertising on daycare.com. I was curious if that would still be a possibility?

Again, thank you for all the help and advice. We would probably still be totally lost or had given up without the forum.

I really appreciate that. It is the members that offer their expertise that is invaluable. They deserve the credit.

Yes, I am offering the extra months and premium option for free as long as you keep the basic membership ongoing. Sign up and let me know the name so I can give you the upgrades.

Great! I've added the three months, Premium Placement and Enhanced Page options for free: http://www.daycare.com/php/showlisting.php?ID=00418476

You will immediately be searchable from Daycare.com and the search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo will index your listing page in the next few days which will bring extra visitors to your page.
