Google Question
« on: February 16, 2012, 03:46:59 am »
 Is Createaforum in the google search engines? I have very few guests and visitors that view the forum.  How can this be increased?  I've added the forum URL to google, but it's still not in the search engine.

It's best to spread your forum's link across as many websites as possible. Google bots will pick up the link then go to it and check your website out. Once recorded, your website will earn a spot in Google's search results however don't expect it to be within the first page, especially if you have a forum name that other websites of forums may have.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Search results are ordered in a special way based on the words that were entered into the search engine. You can read more about how that works here

What I can suggest for you to do if you want to promote your forum is this:

1. Add your board link to your personal website if you have one or a friend's site

2. Tell your friends and other people about your board. With social networking sites this becomes a lot easier.

3. Find sites that have the same kind of content and see if you can do an "affiliate" type thing. You post their link on YOUR board, in exchange for them posting your link on their board.

4. Have good content. If you do all this advertising but have nothing interesting on your board, people won't stay. Sure, you'll have a lot of people sign up as members, but keeping them around is what's important.

Also, check out this guide for tips on how NOT to run your forum.
