How come my visitors don't sign my guestbook?

One of the main reasons that visitors don't sign guestbooks is the placement of the guestbook link where they are hard to find. As a rule you should place your guestbook code or links above the fold. In other words; your visitors should be able to see the link without scrolling down the page. So place the links near the top of the page and centered.

Another reasons is asking for personal information in required fields. Don't ask for email address or phone numbers in a required field. Make this kind of info optional. As a reminder, NEVER use our guestbooks to collect credit card information. Your guestbook may be terminated if you try to collect financial data.
