Search Engines
« on: August 25, 2011, 08:33:23 am »

Not sure where this goes. Maybe in Advertise You Forum? MODS, move this to wherever.


Anyway, how do we go about adding our sites to search engines like Google or any other search engine for that matter, to get hits and increase traffic?


Also, how do I had a code that lets me know what my daily traffic is to the site?


Thanks.

Okay, doing a bit more research, I went with Google and its Google Webmaster Central. I added my site and now it's asking me to verify my site by uploading the HTML Verification file. But where and how do I upload the file?  ???

Anyone?


I need help with this otherwise my forum is useless if I can't get traffic to it. It doesn't matter if it's HTML or Metatags. Whichever works is what I will go with. I'm just clueless about where to copy/paste/upload.

I would have to build something for meta tags but could be done.

Any info on how and where to do the HTML uploading process? It doesn't have to be metatag specifically. One or the other that gets my site verified and into Google Search.


Thanks.

File uploads won't work the only thing I can do is a meta tag system.

So none of the sites created using CreateAForum can be attached to Google or any other search engines then?support? Then how are people to create traffic if HTML and Metatags aren't even active with the software?

Ok, so then everything is already verified with Google? So then how do I track how many people of visiting the site daily, weekly?

Okay. Just signed up for Google Analytics. Where do I paste the code? It says to copy onto every page? But where am I copying it specifically? The instructions assume we are to know what we are doing. I don't. ???

Okay. I've pasted the code into the footer. How do I check to see if it's working from my forum? Or do I go elsewhere for that?
