What's a "Quick List"?  How do I use it?
The Quick List feature is a way to sort through the site content and set aside what you want to read more carefully or compare to something else. (Useful for job hunters or those looking for a place to live, for example.) While browsing, click on the  "Add to Quick List" button for anything you want to add to your list.  Click on "View Quick List" to see your selections. Note: Quick Lists are not saved once you leave the site.

How do I know if my listing or ad is getting viewed?

You can check your listing stats by accessing your Member Control Panel.  Log into your Member Account and select [Listing] [Manage Listings] and click on the graph icon to the right of the title for a comprehensive report.

What is a keyword?  (Why use / how to use)
A keyword is a word or phrase that a user sees as relevant to the information he or she is seeking. The user enters keywords into an online search form. The search engine then examines each record in its database to find those documents that match the keywords.  (Google is a prime example of this.)
 
When creating your Business Directory listing, you can use up to 10 keywords or phrases. When a user uses the search feature, the keywords are what the site indexes and uses to supply listings in answer to the search. For example, if you are an artist specializing in commissioned stained glass, you might use the keywords “stained glass", "custom windows" and "commissioned art", as those are possible words used by a site visitor looking for what you offer. You should also include your business name, personal name and perhaps your location if that could be an applicable search term. 
 
What is RSS and why would I want to use it?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Also called web feeds, RSS is a content delivery vehicle. When it distributes the content it is called a feed. You could think of RSS as your own personal wire service.
Syndication: One party creates the content and it is published in many places.
An RSS feed is not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS. RSS feeds keep your audience constantly updated. They allow people to see your content without having to go to the website. With a newsreader and RSS feeds, the content comes to them.
 
How do I do offer discounts and coupons with my Business Directory listing?
The coupons and special offers section is a feature of  the Showcase Business Listings. To add a coupon, login as a member and select Promotions from the Member Panel menu.
 
What do the red raspberry and the red diamond on some listings mean?
The Red Raspberry is an award given by Razz (who is a real person) signifying a business or person who has been highly and repeatedly recommended by TheRazzLine members and/or Razz has personally experienced a high level of service and competence from the person or business.
The Red Diamond represents a business or person who has received a number of recommendations by TheRazzLine members.
