From Professional Licensing Links to Pages

Good Day to You,

A transformation is beginning to take place in the Maine Professional Licensing section of the site.

The “section” has consisted of a single page for quite a while now. The number of pages in the working document being used to further grow and develop the information and resources made available through this process, began to grow to fifty (50) pages.

The amazing thing is that the information taking up the first 37 pages doesn’t even get us past the letter “D”.

Now, new pages are being added to the section for each Profession, replacing the simple linking process currently in use.

Over time, the name of each Profession on the Maine Professional Licensing page (now the home page for the section) will become a link to that profession’s dedicated link page.

Starting with the Accountants Profession, with more pages to come.

More than Just Links

The new format, represented by the addition of the Accountants page will first grow in the Maine Professional Licensing Section. Once that section is completed, the Professions Section build will begin.

Descriptive Links

You will see that the links themselves are descriptive. You will be able to recognize the destination page from the name of the link. This should help you identify where you are going. You will know the page title and website the page is on, recognizing it more easily.

Alphabetically Listed

The resources and information you need to find, will be easier for you to locate, because they are indexed in alphabetical order.

More Description When Needed

In some cases, a brief listing called “AS FOUND ON THIS PAGE:” is found directly under the resource link. This information IS NOT indexed alphabetically, but in the order the information is FOUND ON THE PAGE. In this way, you will be more likely to find this information, by following the page order as listed.

Simple Structure

Each Profession’s dedicated page will have a similar format to this first one.

As with the Accountants dedicated page, each page will have the following headings:

HOME PAGE

LICENSE TYPES

This heading is dependent upon the availability of dedicated “License Type” pages for that Profession.

MORE

Under this heading is where the alphabetically indexed list of links to Information and Resources begins.

All the links are descriptive so that you know where the link takes you in advance.

Listing Online Services

Sometime using the “AS FOUND ON THIS PAGE:” designation just isn’t going to be enough to allow you to be able to find all the various ways a resource like Online Services or an Online Search Engine can be used.

Instead of having a single resource link going to one of the above mentioned resources, you will find each “function” listed alphabetically as an individual resource link.

To help illustrate the end result, I will list them by “topic” in the order you will find them on the Accountants page:

Do you trust online reviews in search results or testimonials on a website? The name TrendRandom is derived from my desire to provide an honest collection of relevant references for a variety of products and services offered online. Did you know that the majority of "reviews" found online in the search results end up being a "self promotion" by some affiliate, or a dishonest attempt to discredit a competitor? On site customer testimonials are not reliable either, because the owner has complete control over what reviews get published. I'm an "atypical" affiliate marketer. I'm done trying to promote a specific product or service and have decided to make my "niche" questioning users about the promises made by sales claims, using polls. The poll results are controlled by a third party with a link to the results located in the lower left corner of each poll. In this way, I only make commissions from sales based on the honest “yes” or “no” answers to straightforward questions, not through "promoting". Feel free to use the Contact Form on the site to ask questions, comment, or suggest an offer to poll. My Best to You Arth Strout 12 Summer St., Apt. 2 Augusta, ME 04330
