Buy Your Land with LinkaLand Directory

We have finally received our first ReviewMe review. After our ratings went up and our price stayed low, I knew it was only a matter of time. LinkALand must have thought it was a great deal, so let’s give them their moneys worth.

What is LinkALand?

“Site is pretty much self-explanatory”

I wish they would have told me! I got a very small description, and no direction to go in. I will do my best however.

Virtual Land or Linkaland appears to be a new directory. When I say new, it appears very new. There isn’t a lot on their website.

Ever played Risk?

In risk you take over territories, well it seems to be similiar at Linkaland. You can buy land where you want your website image to be displayed. The layout looks just like the game board. Pick your country.

They’ve got the whole world in their hands

Literally, they’ve got the whole world and only one resident. To get some more websites listed and people involved I think they need to run a promotion of some sort, ‘to get the ball rolling’. In this case, to get the world filled! It would of been a perfect time right now to run a promotion, order some review me reviews, and started loading their directory with quality sites. So how do you become a part of this world…?

Pricing Problem

Well, there is no pricing information links available on the website. The way that I found it was by emailing them when I went to “Buy Land” To get their prices, you must first email them and they will send you more instructions. That process was unnecassary, and they could easily put up a page about buying links etc, instead of via email.

Now that I found the prices…

The pricing structure is terrible. For example, pricing for the United States is listed at 5 cents. When you get to the bottom it states

“All prices are calculated based on the following; All prices are in 10 sq km, please note that a pixel of land on the swf file being diplayed on main page is approximatly 1000 km².”

So obviously you are going to need to calculate how big your file is to find out the price. I suppose it is just a guide, but there could be an easier way to calculate how much space costs. I’d rather not get on a calculator to figure out what I am paying.

The Positives…

This isn’t a regular boring directory with no images, Linkaland has something new, different and unique. I just wish they would have had more to look at. Again, it’s hard to review something thats not there.

Pixel directorys have definitely been hot lately for some, and this might be another promising one, just need to work out some things.

    I like the idea, its not only a picture you can put on the land, you can add a java script like an animation. It’s so funny, the land per square kilometer of different countries is worth different prices. I think it will fill up very fast. Does anyone know when the site was initially launched? Oh I see, the post says it was launched just a few days ago.
