    Hey all! Website traffic & stuff....

    Well I do have hopes and dreams for this site, but it seems as though it just refuses to take off. However, I did want to stop in and say hello, and let you all know that website traffic is actually pretty consistent, and with a little effort we could still bring this forum to an active status.

    If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears. I have been so preoccupied myself lately that I am not really doing my part, but with a swift kick in the *** I could surely light a fire there.

    That wouldn't hurt, and Facebook and Twitter will help too.

    Fake accounts? Not sure that it would work, but might help with extra hellos, and the odd extra answer from someone else lol.

    Highlight in fb groups the ease of forums, no lost posts and pics etc like in a fb group when things soon get drowned by others. Is there a pets fb group? Although it's hard to get peeps off fb onto forums.

    Yes it is hard to get people off fb and onto forums. I think we need more good articles about pet stuff.

    I worry that forums in general are too "dated" for most, not instant enough.

    Anyways.......more articles, could def generate more traffic, but without action on site we won't grab new members. It's a catch 22

    Maybe you should ask a few of the mods from EBN to pop here and help, write a post, answer a post etc etc. especially those with other pets, like Kelly, she has a cat. I'm sure others must have other pets too.

    Post some bits about the tortoises...if we all try to add a random thread each week then at least we have something new yo answer.

    What parts of EBN are really popular??
    Anything that could be utilised here without being a total C&P???

    Well for here the most popular page is the article on hyperkeritosis & allergies. So we could focus on creating more articles to draw in new members, in the meantime we really need to give people a reason to visit daily, right? I don't mind the forum having our little small group, I actually am quite fond of our little bunch As far as a straight copy and paste, I believe google algorhythyms don't index replicas of other info already on the web, it has to be fresh and new. I'd like to write an article on the hystiocytoma next. Anyone else up for writing an article on pet related education?

    I'll have a go at anything. Just give me some clues and i'll put something together.
    something cat related perhaps. but then cats dont tend to require much looking after, they care for themselves LOL

    We ( well you ) support a lot of rescues , maybe like Me they own more then just Bulldogs push them for a link to all sites , I was always very careful on EBN not to post or talk about My other guys in the beginning as it was in My view a bulldog site also until Ron pointed out that this site even existed I did not know way way down at the bottom of the EBN front page there was a link to other sites like this . You see I had no reason to look way down at the bottom of the page why would I ? Maybe move those links up on all sites so people see them and encourage people to check em out .
