    When searching for Leeds forum on Google, it doesn't even come up. First of all the domain should be registered with Google, costs nothing and takes a few minutes. But I think you may have to be the owner of the domain to register it, I'll look after posting this.

    Also, once the domain starts being found in Google someone needs to - or between it's active users, start to post about popular events/news topics with SEO friendly titles.

    Fastest way to grow the forum in my opinion is to just increase the general amount of traffic so this domain ranks above the forums of Leeds United when searching for "Leeds Forum"

    Yeah, but the SEO model is similar to a small business in the sense that there isn't a tonne of self-generating, new traffic.

    Not at all, you're never too old to learn new tricks.

    Feel free to post any specific advice on this thread if you feel we're missing a trick at the moment.

    Thanks

    #1 refers. I've just glimpsed 'unanswered threads', 6 of the 1st page of 30 were for general discussion, the rest were events or ads. Perhaps the mods could inject a shot of enthusiasm,
    as is the case in 'yorkshirehumour.com', 'Pudseybornandbred' and countless other local forums, Bradford had a nice tribute to both world wars. Is it so demanding to enable pictorials?
    LF and SF have the same gaffer and both sites are sensible and don't require policing as such.
    Speaking as a flexible dinosaur, I think we should cater for the young uns and sacrifice pedantic grammar, spelling and in some cases, decency and politeness, ouch!
    People will only respond if they feel the need to respond.
    I think I've earned a new green dress. lol

    Can you clarify what you mean regarding the mods injecting enthusiasm? Do you mean they should be replying to the unanswered threads? Surely this is something that other users could be helping with as well as the mods? In terms of being pedantic, can you point me to some instances of where you feel that this has been the case (perhaps via PM rather than taking this thread off topic). Thanks

    Yes will do admin. Please treat 'unanswered threads'as a seperate item, I was merely pointing out, only 6 of the first 30 were answerable.
    Enthusiasm, as shown by Tech Reps, #1 should be encouraged by all don't you think?

    Can someone search Google for "leeds forum" today and let me know where we appear - all results are dynamic these days, so it might vary.
