From FriscoChuck at Frisco, Texas - Online community
on 9 Nov '99
I need help drawing more traffic to my site and getting the traffic I do draw to participate in my forum. I started a community website in July and so far the traffic has been good but I am not getting the response I think I should be getting to host community groups or businesses and I am not getting the community to post thoughts in the forum.
I am hoping people can suggest ideas that I can implement on my site to get people to people to utilize the forum. Also, can anyone suggest ideas to let Frisco know about my site?
Here are some of the things I've tried:
I'm working to be listed #1 in all search engines. So far I am listed at the top in Yahoo and excite. I was #1 in Alta Vista but disappeared?
Ads in the local paper
Article in the chamber newsletter
Attend chamber events
barter with a local sign company
created links and got posted in a local sports newspaper
What else can I do? I am on a tight budget. Thanks
