When you receive the email there will be a verification link, click this to verify a valid email address and that’s it – your free online advert will be live on Joe PubClick and visible to the Joe Public looking for reliability, professionalism, excellent service and great value for money.
Can I register more than one free online entry?
Once you have completed your free online advertisement you will be able to submit this for inclusion in other categories you feel are suited to the nature of your ads content. Joe PubClick will receive the submission and either accept or decline the request. In most cases ads will be granted multiple category exposure but Joe PubClick has a duty of care to enforce methods of ‘fair play‘ to ensure categories do not become populated with inappropriate or irrelevant content for it’s site’s visitors and genuine participants.
Can I run my advert in more than one town?
In most cases adverts will be related to their operating town or city. However franchises may wish to justifiably submit their free online listing to multiple towns and cities where their fellow franchisees are operating. In most cases Joe PubClick will permit these inclusions.
Remember that Joe PubClick is pro local businesses, trades, small-medium retailers and services. Large chains and corporations will not be included anywhere on this release of Joe PubClick. Joe PubClick is designed to assist local communities rather than line the pockets of highly profitable, secure corporations, heavy weight high street retailers and large commercial chains.
However Joe PubClick will evaluate every submission by assessing the ‘value‘, not just to the advertiser but to Joe Public (the consumer) also. If it is deemed that the entry is hugely beneficial to the public then it may be granted a position on www.joepubclick.co.uk, although it’s ability to move around the screen may be restricted.
Can I change my free online advert?
Your free online business directory advert can be edited and then re-published as many times as you feel necessary. The more frequently you change the special and promotional offers on your advert, the more frequently Joe Public will revisit to benefit on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. Aside from the attractive offers, you will be able to add links to YouTube, send feeds to Twitter and email your friends on Facebook. Joe PubClick encourages the use of recent successful methods of social networking and advertising. You may also upload a Podcast (a recorded piece of audio) that can be broadcast from your free online listing.
Are the categories set in stone?
The categories that appear in the first instance (when a town or city is launched) are the default categories that will always remain. Joe PubClick may sub-divide these categories if they become too crowded and if the popularity of a particular business type warrants the divide. It is down to the registrant to decide on the most important category or categories for their business, trade, shop or service to appear under. Categories may be requested using the contact form but will not necessarily be granted.
Will I see the changes to my free online listing instantly?
When you first register your free online advert you will see it go live under your chosen primary category. Other category inclusions must be submitted for consideration, this is done during the registration process. Your free online business advert will be live immediately and the details will be sent to the Joe PubClick moderators. If the advert breaks any of the house rules or violates any of the terms and conditions it will be dealt with accordingly.
Is my advert open to abuse?
No, when you register on Joe PubClick you will receive your User name and Password via the email address you used to sign up with. This will be a randomly generated but you will have the opportunity to change this to something more memorable in your control panel when you log in for the very first time. Providing you do not give out your password to anyone then there is virtually no chance that your free online listing will become vulnerable to hacking. If you think your advert has been sabotaged then please report via email to email@example.com. First and foremost www.joepubclick.co.uk is hosted on a dedicated and secure server which makes it as safer environment as it possibly can be.
Where will my advert appear on Joe PubClick?
Since Joe PubClick is a free business directory, launching first for Whitstable and Canterbury, it will be a case of first come first served. Be the first local business, trade, tradesman, shop, small-medium retailer or service to register your free online listing and create your website link for free. If you are first to register you will appear first (number one spot, top left) under your chosen category. The second business to register will appear second, the third business will appear third and so on. This process will continue for a period of 30 days. Therefore the first registered advert will remain top under it’s primary category for a minimum period of 30 days.
How long will my advert appear for?
Your free online business advert will appear under your chosen primary category indefinitely. If you are the first business, trade, shop, retail or service then you will be guaranteed a top position for a minimum period of 30 days. The ordering of the adverts in the first instance will be done on a first come – first served basis so this means that the first business to register will appear first, the second will appear second, the third, third and so on. This process will carry on for a period of 30 days. After this period other registrations can still occur, and so other businesses, trades and services may continue to register for free.
How many other adverts will appear in my category?
There is no cap on the number of adverts that will appear under a particular category. However if Joe PubClick feels that the particular category has become saturated then a new category may be introduced to accommodate the surplus adverts building up. This decision will be left entirely to Joe PubClick. In the mean time, the quicker you are to register, the higher up the page you will appear.
Will I be able to monitor my advert’s performance?
Joe PubClick will monitor your free online advert for you. Joe PubClick will have statistics on Page Views or ‘Impressions‘ and Page Clicks or ‘CTR‘ – Click Through Rate. Impressions will be the number of times your advert has been requested if a visitor views all adverts under your chosen category. This will give the advertiser an idea of the level of exposure their free online business advertisement is getting. The number of clicks is the actual number of times a member of the Joe Public has clicked the advert and visited the website link.
Will I be able to link to my website?
This is one of the most attractive features of being a registrant on Joe PubClick. A link to your website will create an ‘inbound‘ link which Google favours, and will acknowledge when it comes to index you and rank your site in a search result. Many directories do not permit this but Joe PubClick encourages the technique of ‘back-linking‘ for wider exposure among the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN. If you are interested in this process and would like to discover further ways of improving your own website’s visibility to search engines then visit Confoogle for some great tips and techniques.

What is Twitter?
Twitter is one of the latest social networking and instant messaging tools to sweep the nation. Like all these crazes it has already evolved from what started as a simple to use tool to keep all your friends informed with what you are up to by writing a a few words or quick sentence, to a means of business branding and product awareness, reaching a wide audience with two or three click of the mouse.
Joe PubClick is a new initiative that gives way to a revolutionary free business directory for local businesses and local consumers, and therefore accommodates these new and popular facilities in it’s architecture. When you register your free online advert for your business you can send ‘tweets‘ (Twitter messages) to your Twitter account. Joe Public can then subscribe to these via the Joe PubClick website and you can keep your subscribers up to date with all your latest Special Offers and Price Promotions. This is an extremely effective and free way of advertising – all you have to do is spend five minutes on Joe PubClick registering your free online advert for your business, trade, shop or service.
Joe PubClick is a free online business directory, first launching in Whitstable and Canterbury, Kent and has been built upon some of the logic Confoogle has made known, and as a consequence it has provided the Joe PubClick Advertiser with a Search Engine Optimised platform to advertise and promote from. All businesses, trades, small-medium retailers and services all benefit from a search engine friendly and highly visible to Google website. Consequently the Joe PubClick Advertisers benefit from very high exposure to high volumes of qualified leads to their free online advertisements.
What is YouTube?
YouTube is another example of social networking, an online phenomenon that has taken the nation by storm and in its wake, opened up new realms of free online advertising. The successful ingredient this time is video sharing. Members of the public are invited to upload their own video clips and tag them with keywords so they can be searched for by other users.
The YouTube platform has breathed new life into the way businesses are promoting themselves online. Videos can be embedded into web pages and then streamed from the YouTube server. Links can be easily emailed to friends making this form of marketing very viral. Similarly Joe PubClick, the free local online advertising directory and free search directory for special offers and price promotions, allows the advertiser to link to their YouTube channel for greater exposure and the chance to offer an alternative form of communication to potential customers. Register your YouTube channel today so that you may link to it from your free online listing, only on your local Joe PubClick.
