Top Ten Inmate Pen pal sites ranked by traffic
- the top traffic ranking site
on the web
Are you thinking of listing an inmate on a prison
pen pal site.
Website traffic (number of visitors) is extremely important when
considering which website to choose. The more traffic (visitors) a site gets the
better change an inmate will successfully get pen pals. We
recommend listing an inmate on
is in the number one spot with WriteAPrisoner.com solidly in
second place. They get the most traffic by far of any of the
inmate penpal sites and both have been established for over 10
years. We suggest that if a site is not in the top ten it may be
a waste of money to list with them. What is written about the
sites is what they wrote about themselves.
PrisonPenpalDirectory.com is a
fact site not a review site.
Alexa.com is the Bible to this website. We also own meet-an-inmate.com
and get irritated about the false statements put on by copycat
sites that their site is number one. Meet-An-Inmate.com is truly
number one and this site shows why.
If you are listing a female then it
may be OK to list with most of the sites. However, if you are
listing a male then I would not go past number three. It takes
thousands and thousands of visitors before one will actually
pick up a pen and paper and write a letter to a male inmate.
Even Meet-An-Inmate.com and WriteAPrisoner.com cannot guarantee
results for the men. I would estimate that about 10% of the men
will not get results. You need to put effort into the ad and use
the best recent photo that you have and use your wording wisely
and honestly. Preferably the photo should come from prison which
is more believable than an outdated photo taken before they were
incarcerated. Many states have inmate locators and will show
information of the prisoner including a recent photo. Meet-An-Inmate.com
provides links to the sites to look them up. Or you can go to a
site I used to own but sold called inmatesplus.com and they will
supply links to prisons and even to county jails. It is real
negative for a 45 year old woman to put up a photo of herself
when she was 20. Nobody is that stupid and this will cause them
to get less mail or no mail.
Alexa.com is ranked #2,227 in
the world. PrisonPenpalDirectory.com as you can see at the
bottom of this page is ranked between 4 and 7 million. Which
means not too many people find it or have a use for it. You can
get a free toolbar at Alexa.com and you can instantly view what
a site is ranked. Any site ranked over five million is getting
few visitors. A site that is labeled as No Rank gets only a few
if any visitors. I find this very useful. For example you may
have a fancy dandy website that comes across like it is an
important site but if if has a ranking in the millions it is not
so big. It even may help in identifying scam sites that are
imitating a successful site. I frequent Alexa.com almost as much
as I Do Google.
The closest competitor to Meet-An-Inmate.com
is and extremely good site called Write-A-Prisoner.com. It has
better and more expensive software. I like some things about it
better than my own site. The owner is passionate about his
website. He tries to do other things for prisoners rather just
getting them mail like Meet-An-Inmate.com. But he spreads
himself a little thin and cannot accomplish all the things that
he means well in doing. So Meet-An-Inmate.com has one purpose
and purpose only and that is to get mail for prisoners. The site
is simple and easy to navigate. When I go to Write-A-Prisoner.com
to check out my competion and try to navigate to the prisoner
ads it so complicated that I usually give up before
accomplishing the task. So bottom line is Meet-An-Inmate.com
gets more traffic than Write-A-Prisoner.com and is simpler to
navigate to the ads which would indicate that if you want an
inmate to get mail Meet-An-Inmate.com is best the way to go. For
a brief period of time a couple years ago Write-A-Prisoner held
the number one spot in traffic. No other site has done that in
the last 15 years.
All of the top ten sites listed here are
legitimate and not scams. They would not be listed if they were.
I will soon may be going to a different
format where only the top five get listed and all others that
have a ranking above NO RANK get honorable mention.
