SPAR European Cross Country Championships smashes entry records

A record number of 509 athletes (275 men and 234 women) from 30 countries have entered for the 13th SPAR European Cross Country Championships which will be held in San Giorgio su Legnano next Sunday, 10 December.

This figure, represents a rise of 148 from the previous record entry in Heringsdorf, Germany in 2004 and is aided by the introduction of a new U23 category, introduced by the European Athletics Council on a project basis.

Sergey Lebid, from the Ukraine, leads the men‚s entry list where he will be looking to win his seventh individual title. Competing in his 13th appearance in the championships, the Ukrainian will face strong opposition from Britain‚s Mo Farah who is coming into top form in perfect time for the event.

The women‚s event looks to be wide open and any number of athletes has an equal chance of outright success.

Listing Site Updates

Under one of these subheadings, it's a good idea to list recent updates to my site so that visitors, especially return visitors, can check out the new stuff first. For example, I could list the date and a brief description of the update.

I could also list updated news about my site's topic. For example, if my site were about a particular sport, I'd could discuss the outcome of a recent competition.

Notifying Visitors of Site Enhancements

Another idea for my home page's text is notifying visitors about the enhancements I put on my site. For example, I want visitors to sign my guestbook or fill out my survey Form E-mailer to answer questions about my site, my business, or my site's topic.

Getting Rich Quick--From My Site!

I might not want a large amount of text on my home page if I want to guide visitors toward my other pages. Instead of text, I can add others' buttons to this first page, and I'll be rewarded for people who click on the buttons. For example, if a visitor signs up for a Visa using the NextCard button on my site, I earn at least $20!

Behind the Scenes of My Home Page

Even if I don't put much text on my home page, it's a good idea to include hidden tools that will help me promote my site, so people other than my friends and family actually see it. For example, I could add meta tags, which are hidden codes that allow search engines to find my site. I could also install stats and a counter so I know how many people are visiting. If not many are visiting, submitting my site to search engines will guide more traffic to my site.
