The YLocale Gold Star Program

What is the YLocale Gold Star Program?

The YLocale Gold Star Program is a way to get a gold star by your ad when you include a link to YLocale on your website.

How does the gold star work?

When a user searches and your ad (deluxe listing) appears, if you are a Gold Star Member then a gold star will appear by your entry.

What does the gold star do?

The gold star doesn't contain any functionality and is not clickable. It is a visual effect to help draw a bit more attention to your ad listing.

How can I become a Gold Star Member?

It's simple!

  1. First, sign up for an account if you haven't already. Then go to the submit page and submit your ad if you haven't already submitted one.
  2. Have someone place one of the following code fragments onto your website:
    • Find us on YLocale

    • Find us on YLocale logo

    Note the code must be placed verbatim onto the website with a few exceptions:
    • You may replace 'YLocale' with 'FindBadger' or 'LocalToe'.
    • You may replace 'Find us on' with 'View us', 'See our ad at', or some other text with equivalent meaning.
    • You may remove the 'target="_blank"' from the link.
    • You may use a link which points to a page on YLocale which shows your ad - contact us for more information.
    • You may use any font size 7pt or greater.
    • You may use any font or color, however the text must be clearly legible.
    • You may scale the logo image, but it must be at least 50px wide.
    • This code can go onto any page of your site, but it must appear at least on the main page for your site, or the 'Contact Us' (or equivalent) page.
    • You may translate the text into the language of your website, as long as the meaning remains the same.
  3. Then, use the Quick Feedback fields at the bottom of each page to let us know you wish to participate in the Gold Star Program. In the Message field, mention the name of your business. Note, you need to sign up for a plan of at least $10 / month in order for your ads to be shown and to participate in the Gold Star Program.
  4. We will check to make sure the above requirement are met, and if so, your ads (deluxe listings) will be set to show a gold star icon next to them.

If you have any questions, just let us know. You can use the Quick Feedback fields at the bottom of this page to send us a question. Be sure to include an email address or phone number where we can reach you.
