  1. Ranking Going Down

    Google SEO was very easy back in 2011. In fact, it was too easy. In other words, it was easy to scam low-quality to the top of Google. Anyway, this thing continued on Bing for awhile and might still be the case, but I don't think it is. In other words, I don't think things like "Exact Match Domains" work as well now.
  2. I don't really like it. It makes the place look unprofessional, even if there is no religious motivation in stopping it. However, though, cracking down on it can make you seem like your against fun or something.
  3. School boy / girl errors

    It's always good to make sure your finished work looks good on all browsers, even if you didn't bother to check for mistakes - because sometimes mistakes show and sometimes they don't. Also, you might want to consider putting the work thru a program which checks for errors. Note, that would be called HTML validation in one instance.
  4. Donators

    I don't ask for donations but if someone asked, then I'd take it. Anyway, I just don't like the desperation look of donations. Nonetheless, though, I do have a Patreon page for my drumming lessons, but that the only exception.
  5. Do you create fake accounts?

    I don't like it cause it's unethical. Basically, it's lying to the audience. I mean, it's not like your writing a fiction novel.
  6. Free forums

    I another similar thread, I failed to mention the fact that free software has slow updates and bad support. That's one reason why XenForo or some other paid solution is worth the added cost. In other words, you simply get what you pay for. But it's a shame, though, cause I want free forum software solutions to do well.
  7. XenForo

    My main attraction to XenForo simply is the fact I'm used to it and I like the themes. However, though, I don't see why phpBB cannot work just as well. Nonetheless, it does seem like there are little quarks which make phpBB (and MyBB) annoying - for instance, bad paragraph spacing, but I don't know if it's due to the software or lack of updates.
  8. What do you need most help with?

    I need more traffic but my budget can't even afford banner ads. In fact, my greatest success has only been with some social media posting, but with a guy who boosts my posts for free, and a thing where the more I post, the more my site is seen. However, though, the 2nd method only gains on average maybe 30 visitors a day, but it's better than nothing. Oh, by the way, another big problem is graphics. The forums need better logos, but of course, that's more money.
  9. Character Length

    Guest posting might be a paid gig, so I might be upset with answers like, "I agree.". However, though, member posting is totally free - as it should be. In fact, it would be highly foolish to police that stuff - outside of obviously trollish or spammy remarks.
  10. Forum Suggestions

    My forums all have a suggestion box type area and my new hosting setup has a support page (an email and comment submission box). However, though, I made the mistake of naming it "The Office" on some. In that case, some writers are confused and think the subject is "The Office", as in, "How do I behave in the office?".
  11. Social Media

    I've created a Facebook page for nearly all my forums. However, though, a couple of them have only likes, not traffic potential. This problem is due to the fact that the posts need to be boosted and that requires money (a little), but now I don't even have a small budget. Nonetheless, I hope this situation will change in the near future.
  12. Increasing traffic

    I do a post for advertising thing on one forum. That's the only way I'm getting traffic at the moment. However, with another forum, I was using free Facebook posts to get quite a bit of visitors. However, though, that wouldn't have been possible if the owner wasn't boosting my posts, as, without it, few posts reach the readers. Anyway, I'd like to do guest blogging, pay-per-click, and banner advertising in the future, especially the banner stuff as it's cheaper. Also, SEO isn't out of the question, but it's last on the list.
  13. I'd say yes, cause buyers are very cynical. However, though, there are literally no Wordpress ones for free, unlike with other niches. Nonetheless, you can sign up for a certain reseller program and you can get a theme in return. Anyway, some other options include using stuff like The Free Hosting Tool (available from Softalicious) and getting a free HTML theme. However, though, in the 2nd instance, the one I saw looked awesome, but it was too difficult to understand. I mean, the forms have to somehow reach my email, but I don't know enough about Javascript code.
  14. What works best: PPC or SEO?

    Possibly they would produce the same results. However, though, with SEO, you have to be very strict with grammar, spelling, and content originality. Also, you need to be highly knowledgeable about SEO, unless you're paying for it. Anyway, to be honest, pay-per-click can also have a learning curve, but it's nothing compared to SEO.
  15. Hiring an SEO Company

    It would probably still cost you a lot cause quality backlinks won't be gotten for peanuts. I mean, if that were true, then everyone would be on top, right?
