I've never signed or even read any guest books ... what are the advantages/disadvantages? Are they appropriate for this kind of site?
;) Well, that kind of sums it up, IMO.
Much better, I think, would be to collect any 'satisfied customer' letters or thank you notes you may have received, and create a Customer Testimonials page.
I have a testimonial page and I get regular warm fuzzy emails stating positive comments about the site. So to save time cut and pasting etc. I decided to create a guestbook.
Here's some tips.
Find yourself a good guestbook which has features such as naughty word blocking, ip blocking, pages stored in a flat text file and not in a html file.
Ensure the guestbook has a 'Thank You for signing our guestbook' facility as this creates a sticky which can cause the casual visitor to call back.
Well, I set my guestbook up 3 weeks ago. I was expecting quite a few postings in there. Todate, there are just 2 entries :(
