The header and footer functionality in Smart Name Shops is now working again. SmartName is a very exclusive “domain parking” program from NameMedia that allows you to create ecommerce comparison shopping sites with a few clicks. In the September newsletter I had mentioned that these shops were broken – that the header and footer text that you enter did not show up on the site.
Smart Name Shops are a work in progress, and there are likely to be more bumps in the road. The ability to add your own AdSense ads to your shops makes these especially interesting. The rules for these shops are different than the rules for normal “domain parking.” You can send paid traffic to these sites, link to them from other sites, and otherwise treat them as developed sites.
BotanicalPharmaceuticals.com is an example of a simple SmartName Shop. The graphics at the bottom of the home page are a custom footer.
