When placing an order with a vendor listed there, does ATP get credit if the webpage is entered via The Green Pages?

Probably not unless they are sophisticated enough to track where each visitor comes from. It's possible but not really likely in most cases.

That is a great question. I think that some businesses are so big they really do not seem to care about such things, @needrain. Me personally, I find it very important to know where our support is coming from so during our checkout process, I added a little survey.

Of course there are some folks that don't bother letting us know how they heard about us, but I would suspect that close 80% do share.

And I am happy to see that an increasing number of ATP members are finding us and giving us a try. This in turn strengthens my resolve to support ATP as much as I can.

I'm not a vendor, just an occasional customer. I would think most businesses would/should be interested in how a customer found and chose them for a vendor. I'm hoping to see The Green Pages grow. It can be a great resource for potential customers and a great location to be listed for vendors. I thought if it made a difference, I'd be sure to enter a webpage via the link on The Green pages rather than through a search engine. They've become my first place to look when I'm searching for plant/garden related items.

I was fortunate enough to win a gift card from you, Mike and I have been very satisfied with the seeds that I got. I hope more members will visit your site and support you. I know I'll be coming back. The carrots I got are probably some of the best I've ever had. And I don't think there has been a germination problem with any of the seeds.

I also won a gift card in a previous raffle and I was very excited since I am a seedaholic! I have not previously ordered from Victory Seeds but I am pleased with what I got and I WILL be ordering again!

It would be nice if vendors knew their business was coming from ATP!
