For the past couple years I have seen the need for a database to bring finders and seekers of missing cars and parts together. I have seen numerous posts where someone is trying to locate a car or part but there is no structured way to do this. My last post on this issue was over a year ago so I am starting this new thread. Here is the original post:

About a year ago I started creating this database but had little time to work on it. I finally got focused and finished it a few days ago. Here it is:

http://www.lostandfoundcars.com

This database relies upon data posted by users and will probably take a good while to become effective. I have added a few test entries of my own to get it going. I'm sure there may be some bugs or changes needed that will become evident as time goes on but for now it is usable.

Please enjoy and pass the word.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Wonder if we can make this post a sticky for a while to give more people a chance to see it before it falls way down?

:thumbsup: Just keeping it at the top. Mike. :beers: :beers:
Thanks Mike! Well, got two posts so far. Anyone have suggestions on what I could do to get the word out better? I've registered with several search engines and posted the link on a couple other sites but don't know what else to do. It will probably just take time through word of mouth to become known.

Larry - excellent idea!! Good luck with the site - I'll make a post about our original motor.

You should check into putting some Google. adsense ads on that site and help earn some revenue ;)

Thanks for the suggestioin. Does anyone have experience with Google Adsense? Looks pretty simple. Not looking to make money on the site but I would like to recover my server costs.

It's pretty straight forward. If you built at least some of that site yourself you should be able to swing it.

Here is a link: http://www.google.com/intl/en/ads/ Click Google AdSense on the right.

I am using it on a couple of smaller web sites to play with it a little.
Checkout the forums at http://forums.digitalpoint.com they are an excellent resource for web site promotion etc.

:cool:

I built the entire site myself. I have been employed as a software developer for 12 years so the technical implementation of Adsense is no problem. I was just wondering if the program is worth while.
