| MotoZania Newsletter - September 2010 |
| Hello MotoZania Members |
We are trying something new this month with having the newsletter generated through our site instead of through a mail service. We have tried to not include Members who already opted out of getting the newsletter, we apologize in advance if you got this in error. With so many people changing their email addresses, the only way we could keep up was to switch. The one downfall is if you decide to opt out of the newsletter, it will also remove you from getting any messages from MotoZania. Rest assured, we will not burden you with excessive news, you will only get 1 a month.
This may also be a good time to remind everybody to make sure and update your email address on MotoZania when you get a new one. It is easy to do. Just go to your profile and click Edit Profile. Then click Edit Account.
| Membership Drive |

How to get your media seen more?
The easiest way to explain the process is to give you an example. Let's say you have a photograph that you took of girls washing your 2009 Harley Sportster XR1200. It was a benefit bikini bike wash at Fullerton H-D for Children's Hospital of Orange County
The Title box is one of the ways your content gets indexed on MotoZania. It is best to include something about your motorcycle photo. Using our test example, you might want to call it Bikini Bike Wash.
The Description Box is a great way to share with others your experience while you took the picture. Tell us about it, we are interested! It also helps get your photo indexed on the site. The description based on the scenario above would read something like this:
" I took my 2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster XR1200 to the Bikini Bike Wash at Fullerton H-D in California.
It was a benefit for Children's Hospital of Orange County. It was a good cause and GREAT entertainment for 20 bucks!"
Try using different colors and even some HTML in here. Play around, you can always edit it later.
TAGS, I capitalize it because this may be the most important box of all. The Tags are what search engine robots and spiders look for to index your media. Google, Bing, Yahoo, ASK, and all the others look for these key words to find the content on MotoZania.
Think like a computer and using the reference from above, your tags would be:
bikini bike wash h-d harley -davidson XR12002009 fullerton girls motorcycle babes "children's hospital orange county" choc charity
With those tags, not only can everybody on MotoZania find your cool bike photo, but now every Internet user in the world can.
