Eleven years ago today...
« on: December 31, 2009, 06:19:15 PM »
Eleven years ago today the domain name WeatherForYou.com was registered and a site was born.  The original goal was to make people aware of personal weather stations and their contributions.  At that time all the "big" sites said personal weather stations weren't "relevant" to their content.  But we quickly proved that wrong.  :)

The primary goal is still the same... personal weather stations.  A lot has been invested, both financially and time wise, into that goal over the last eleven years.  There are still many people that have been with the program since the beginning which are contributing data.  Regional networks were born using data through this system.  THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has participated and supported these efforts.

Other programs have been added to WeatherForYou.com, most of which somehow tie back into personal weather stations.  I figured the best way to have people find out about them was when they were looking for something else, like forecasts.

According to ranking.com WeatherForYou.com is the fifth most popular weather web site and has been for many months.  A lot of that is because of you telling others about WeatherForYou.com and that your data can be found there.  Thank you for that promotion and allowing WeatherForYou.com to help promote your sites.  PLEASE continue to do so.  It's a ways to go to reach the #4 position... but watch out Intellicast, we're coming.  ;)

Right at the top of my main page I offer viewers to:

Quote
Find the Weather for any City, State 
or Zipcode, or Country:

That sends them to Weather Underground.  I would prefer to send them to WeatherFouYou

Here is the existing code:
Quote
<form target="weather" action=http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast>
<p align="bottom">
<font face="Arial">
<font color="#000000" size="1">Find the Weather for any <b>City</b>, <b>State</b>
&nbsp;<br>
or
<b>Zipcode</b>, or <b>Country:</b></font>

Being a novice at writing HTML I cannot figure out what the changes are that I should make.

Congrats on your Anniversary!

As far as the code goes, try replacing the WU address in the "Action" section with the address for Weatherforyou. I could be wrong but it's worth a shot.
