Promoting Perl events on other Perl sitesby szabgab (Priest)
|on Nov 08, 2007 at 12:03 UTC||Need Help??|
Many people not in the community reach various Perl related sites (such as the two search sites, Perl Monks and many others) by mistake. Probably using Google.
It would be nice if those sites or for that matter any individual web site could promote Perl, the Perl community events and the Perl Mongers in an easy way.
It might be cool if it recognized the country where the visitor is from and displayed a link to the nearest Perl Mongers group or to the next Perl event that will take place in that country (or continent).
For example it would be great for me if every visitor from Israel who reaches one of the Perl sites by some way (e.g. Google search) would see a link to the Perl Workshop in Israel we are going to have on 31 December 2007
Anyone knows about such code?
Anyone with enough tuits to implement such code?
ps. I know about Adwords but it costs money and we have plenty of empty web pages that could be used free of charge for promoting ourselves.
Updatethe Perl Community AdServer is now working. It can be seen in action on CPAN::Forum and on my personal site
