Creating an Online Community

posted 18 July 2020

Searching for some place online to meet new individuals, discuss hobbies, plan occasions, or simply have some good times chatting? Online forums have been around for some time on the internet and often free and simple easy to setup. Forums are basically online discussion web sites where people share informations and chat-grouped around a set of topics. Often there are administrators and moderators that help to keep the discussion orderly and on-topic.

A few things to consider when starting an online community forum include…

Cost – often you can find them for free. There will probably be some advertising on the site, which is normal for a free account.

Features – does the forum support avatars, private messages, user levels, themes, etc.

Security – is it possible to create forums that only registered users can post in? Helps to avoid those spammers.

I cannot point out the last one enough. You should be completely in control of who is in your forums. One bad apple spoils the bunch. On that same note, it is common for forums to have moderators. These are people that help enforce the rules and regulations. Make sure you choose your help wisely. When it comes to administrators, there should only ever be one. Administrators have the keys to the whole city and can set the forum ablaze.

Finally to make a forum a success you need to attract people to it to join. Obviously if it is for a company or some other established group, this is relatively easy. Tell your friends, family, club members. If you are starting from scratch, do the same. Tell people, show people, invite people. Check to see if your forum site is listed in search engines like google, yahoo etc…

Once you get past that initial setup and recruitment you will soon be on your way to having a forum that you and your friends can enjoy… for a considerable length of time.

Why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is Important for your website

posted 04 July 2020

If your business is dependant on customers visiting your website, then you should take a second and ask yourself if you’re happy with the amount of business you’re receiving from your website. If the answer is yes and you’re overloaded with work, then you probably already had your website optimized or chose other means of advertising. However, being that you’re reading this article, you are probably in search of answers or suggestions as to creating more traffic to your website.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about why optimization is important. For starters, who doesn’t want more business, right? I mean business is money and almost everyone I know enjoys making more money. So, with that being said, SEO is an essential part of the online community when it comes to actually making money.

I’m saying this because the web is a vast place. Whatever you sells or offers as a service or product is more than likely offered by many others. Some of your competitors have probably already had their website optimized. My point is being that there are probably 100’s if not 1000’s of websites ahead of you in the search engines.

A professional SEO can rank your website and bring effective traffic your way. Let’s say you’re selling candies and you want your website to come up in Google when someone types in “candies” in his search box. Now there is definitely some competition going on to rank for that key term, but not a whole lot. You’re competing with roughly 5 million other websites using that term. Now you’re probably saying to yourself 5 million! That’s a lot! It may sound like a lot, but it’s not that bad. The term “candies” let’s say was searched about a total of 2,000 times over the last 90 days and you rank #1 for that term and you get everyone who searched for that term to click on your website. Now, assuming you get 10% of the total traffic to complete a sale, that is 200 sales.

Not bad right? The hard part is done. That’s getting people to your website. Now all you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch sales increase. The possibilities are endless.
