BASIC DETAILED SEARCHING:
FEATURES EXAMPLE: (your keywords…) bands/musicians Webcrawled Links
EVENTS EXAMPLE: (your keywords…) january 2021 network calendar
HOW OUR SEARCH ENGINE WORKS:
Our webcrawler is a manual search engine. That’s right an actual person not a bot adds entries to the site. So if you’d like something updated or changed, let us know know. We’ll revisit the web address(url) where we retrieved the information initially.
There are no algorithms. We enter items as we find them then add them to a few categories(ex:band/musician, visual arts, small business, etc). The rest is up to your search keywords.
We also don’t track your searches. All we care about is adding content to help spread the word.
Also other search engines may crawl the content on our site. So people don’t have to directly search our site in order to find the content on our site.
SUBMITTING OR UPDATING LINK FOR FEATURE LISTING OWNERS
Listing Owners: Visit TheXFactory.com/donate. Click “DONATE” button and submit your link within message while making your donation. After adding your donation amount you should see a clickable textbox field with the label “Submit, update a link, and/or leave message.”. Click it. Add the source url which you’d like us to visit for “webcrawling” first. Then add a few instructions if you’d like to the message. There is a 250 character limit for this messsage field. If you check the “Make this a monthly donation” we will know to check the source. After that, you may contact us via email for specific changes and/or updates to your feature page.
LEAVE A REPLY TO RE-CRAWL THIS LINK:
At the right top of each Webcrawled link feature appears this link. Clicking it will take you to the bottom of the features page to reveal a reply update form. It allows anyone on the Internet to “suggest” that the information be re-crawled or updated. After we receive this request, we’ll revisit the source page location “Content retrieved from: …” at a later time. all fields in the reply form are required;
- COMMENT FIELD — Comments may be added. However, please note that the comment information itself will probably not be used in updating the feature page. It will be used as a general guide with light instructions.
- NAME FIELD — The name associated with the email address in the “EMAIL FIELD” below.
- EMAIL FIELD — The senders email address is require and will automatically be added to our mailing list and will NOT be shared.
- WEBSITE FIELD — Should be the name from which you believe that content has been sourced from. This is more of a security check to prevent spam and false update requests. In orther words, simply paste the url that we used to retrieve the information(ex: Content retrieved from: “…”) above in to this field.
That’s it. 🙂
