I need help

Like every body i want to generate more traffic to my forum and increase the amount of members i have, but i don't no how to sign up to search engines and if its free to do as i dn't have a advertising budget of any kind.
myff admin



as this gets asked all the time, by and large signing on for search engines is a myth. If you get links to your forum from other sites search engines find you.

Oh thats a shock because i've seen a few of these sites saying register now and advertise your site on the search engine/s. So this is really just a con then.

Lets say you've got six or seven links back to your site from other forums how long would it take to be put on search engines and is there a way without having to go through thousands of pages of sites in order to find yours ie a rank system or something like that.

do links in signatures count as a link, or does it have to be a main page link?

Signing up for the coop ad network via the control panel will help get you links and you will find loads of measuring tools on the coop ad site.

ANy link is a good link!


The Control panel is linked from the Howtodoit main page, where Symon has oddly called it the forum footer, or from "Login" on our www.myfreeforum.org www.myfastforum.org web sites.

You have been ok on posting, but we have one person posting a lot currently who is on a knife edge as far as getting banned for spamming

We can't actually run a support forum, if people are just posting bollux at the end of every thread, real questions end up getting lost Someone yesterday went hours without an answer for no other reason than me and probably others missing their question amongst the mindless spamming.

If it is who I think it is, then it isn't you as you've been asking kindly for help and thanking people when you get it like 9 out of every 10 do on here.

I wont post the members name as I'm not in a posistion to do so, nor would it be very polite of me either.

The coop ad network is free and is effective, and no I wasn't having a pop at you.

Someone getting banned from this forum does not effect their own forum, except so far as the fact they are going to struggle to find support, as we only offer support via this forum

We try really hard not to have to ban people, but sometimes we have to I see Soul still has 80 largely useless posts left making him 40th top poster on this forum in the space of two months membership despite me and Symon deleting dozens of his spamming posts.

He was warned by Symon and me, and both times responded that it was somehow our fault for not locking/archiving topics others also complained in posts about him spamming, but he carried on regardless.

We simply will not and can not tolerate behaviour that wrecks our ability to support people.

We can enjoy some banter on these forums in offtopic, but the rest of the forum needs to be about being able to offer decent support.
