To create a new user account, enter your desired account name and password, and your email address below, then click the CREATE button. Account names and passwords cannot contain the characters <,>," or '.
Please read the terms and conditions at the bottom of this page before you create your account. By creating an account on this site, you are agreeing to abide by them.
Your email address will only be used to contact you about SelfPromotion.com. Tooter the submission daemon needs to know how to get in touch with you because some promotions result in information (such as account numbers on sites) that you need to record.

Your Email Address:

Quite a few people make mistakes when entering their email address. Please check to make sure you haven't mistyped it. And please don't enter an email address that automatically sends a reply when it receives an email; keep in mind that Tooter will send you some emails as it promotes your site, and so your "autoresponder" will send emails back to Tooter, which get bounced to me, and are of no help whatsoever!

How did you find this site?




Privacy Policy:

All information you enter at SelfPromotion.com is considered confidential and will not be provided to third parties under any circumstances without your express prior permission, unless I am legally obligated to, or brutally tortured.

You will get a reminder email or two shortly before your account expires (which it will after 4 weeks if you don't support the site)

PS: Entering "clinton@whitehouse.gov" as your email address, while cute, means that you'll never know the results of your promotions. And then the mail bounces back to me, which wastes my time. So if you don't want to give your real email address, (which you'll have to do anyway to submit to a lot of the sites), then please don't use this site.

Terms and Conditions

You may use SelfPromotion.com at your own risk. By using it, you are promising not to sue me (or have me killed, hurt, maimed or otherwise inconvenienced) if it doesn't work as well as you think it ought to, or if it somehow ruins your sex-life, costs you money, or does (or does not do) anything you do (or do not) like. And if, despite the above, your high-priced lawyer finds a way to make me liable for something, my liability is limited to whatever you contributed towards keeping the site running.

You may not use SelfPromotion.com to promote anything that is illegal either where you are, or where I am (North Carolina, USA, which is pretty conservative; after all, Jesse Helms was one of our senators). You are agreeing that if anyone hauls me into court because of something you did using this site, or something you should have done when using this site, you will indemnify me, pay all my legal costs, pay any fines for me, get up in court and swear "I did it, and Robert had nothing to do with it! He's innocent, swear to God! Punish me!" and, if need be, impersonate me and serve any jail time I get sentenced to.

SelfPromotion.com is primarily intended for use by individuals promoting their own websites. If you have 20 websites, you can promote them all using your account (Note: if you really do have 20 websites, I seriously suggest you stop using your computer and get a real life). It's also OK to promote several of the more important pages on your site to the Search Engines (as opposed to the Indexes, to whom you should only promote your home page) if you really think you need to do so (though for most sites, it's a waste of time).
WHAT IS NOT OK is using this site to "spam," registering every page on your site, or multiple versions of your home page, or other obnoxious tricks. If, in my sole opinion, I consider your use of this site abusive, I'll delete your account and report you to the search engines; you may find your site blacklisted.

In other words, play nicely in the SelfPromotion.com sandbox or I'll administer the digital equivalent of the spanking of your life!
If you wish to use this site to promote the sites of clients (in other words, if you are charging them for website design and/or promotion, and want to use this site as part of the service you are providing, to earn money for yourself), feel free to test out the site by promoting one of your clients, but once you start using it on a regular basis, I expect you to cough up at least $10 per client website promoted. As with everything else, it's on the honor system.
Exception: if you decide you want to use the site to promote the sites of prior clients, as a favor to them, without any expectation of getting paid for it, then the normal "pay if you like it" rules apply.
Finally, if you are Bill Gates, you promise to give me all your money and worldly goods, and become my towel-boy. Thanks to Scott Adams of Dilbert fame for inspiring this devious attempt to snare $40,000,000,000.00 using fine print.
