few words to prospective members about Poodles Online:
A directory site benefits viewers.
A poodles-only site benefits viewers by allowing them to get the
information they need without slogging through page after
slow-loading page of other species, other breeds etc.

-- A directory site allows members of an industry to

to go! More traffic means more click-through for members,
and it's targeted viewer traffic.
-- Why THIS directory site??

traffic has your site gotten recently? Would some more

Yes, PoodlesOnline does that too (how DID you know that was
coming?). Check our website design page, or send me
an email. I'm here to make the Internet work for you!

I don't have a
website, or even email. Why should I be on
Let's say somebody helpful is telling you about this site,
or showing this page to you. Here's how POL can help you
even if you're not on the Internet:
Internet exposure when you don't have a webpage.
PoodlesOnline is perfect -- you get targeted viewer traffic,
your Premier Breeder listing page will display a full
description to viewers, and give them all your contact
information. It's a great way to establish Internet
presence without diving full-on into a website.

We all start somewhere!
