Meeky and anyone else please know your comments are always welcome here. I take nothing personally #@$!@#%#
well almost nothing.
I now just have to get the people here somehow, so any ideas
on that would be great also?
It's good to see when comments/suggestions are made to admin they don't get upset. Not sure if you visit other forums, but some aren't very good at communicating or debating without becoming upset.
If you have a spare few million you can boost up your rankings on Google or have a little advert on the side of the Google pages, but i guess that's not going to happen..
I frequent 4wd forums and have started a few and found the most traffic comes from word of mouth, quality and usefull infomation.
1. Some users will tell users on other forums, via real life conversations, Private Messages, or by posting a link in there post while talking about relevant info in a general discussion.
2. All forum scripts allow you to have a "Signature" below each post you make, so put a link to here in there on relevant forums. For example, i have "my pics - www.oz4x4.com
" as my signature.
You might be surprised how many people click on these links and wonder around the forums looking at wierd stuff. Also these links are picked up by all the Bots, Google, Yahoo etc, so the more links there are that point to this site the better rankings you have on all the search engines.
bla bla bla.. where was i? oh.. more beer
So now you're creating traffic inwards... then you have to keep them.... Demographic?
I assume we have age 30 - 70? .. and i think it's more around 50s?
1. A nice easy to use, not too confusing, easy to navigate site. ( i think this could be improved )
I think some people on this site (including me) get a bit lost in some of the forums as some have similiar uses and subforums are confusing so i tend to not even look at them.
2. Usefull information.
I think this is probably ok and being looked after by most members as they posting good information.my view would be
, we have enough traffic coming in. We just have to keep them coming back.
again, thanks for listening to my wierdo posts
