At one point I applied for an ISBN-counterpart number for subscriptions
(ISSN?) but I never followed through with it. I did get a listing in one of
the first yellow pages for the Internet, back in 1995 or so when the
Internet was small enough to do that. I announced it on the CONLANG list.
But its not like I ever had money to spend marketing it. If someone gave me
a budget and said "hey, make this profitable", I'd laugh but take there
money and buy some ads in some RPG zines and writing zines. Can't think of
how to spend a marketing budget very effectively though -- its not like you
can rent a mailing list of conlangers though. I did once consider a
classified in F&SF -- it was pretty cheap, but again, my wife is grumpy
enough I spend $25/month on the site and $35/year on the domain name, so...

Nowadays people just look for web pages. Unfortunately I don't use conlang
or constructed language a lot in the text, so that probably hurts my chances
of being found.
