My favorite forum framework right now would have to be xenforo, it's just amazing what can be done to it compared to other paid script I use to like.

My favorite forum framework right now would have to be xenforo, it's just amazing what can be done to it compared to other paid script I use to like.
I do find myself always installing the same set of plugins on every wordpress install I do. It would be nice to have several of the most comment features in the core itself which would surely help...
Prwweb would be who I would use if I was after a paid service. I've used free press release services before and had success. Basically just do a search for free press release, then submit to...
As long as you stay away from vb "5" I think you'll be fine.
The 4.x series is in very good shape these days.
Welcome to netbuilders :)
Congrats to both parties
hey hows it going :)
How did you find this site, enjoy your stay
I know for a fact that this isn't new..
It even says so in that article..lol
I guess I don't understand the title of this thread, beneficial to who?
If you're talking about paid post then yes, admins are still and will always be looking for content on their sites.
Any small business can use adwords as well as optimize their sites for search engines.
I don't feel Google is killing anything ;)
This is the same way you export any wordpress install, self hosted ones too :)
I'm using this style on my general forum and my members love it!
Thanks for sharing it
I priced myself accordingly to how much I could make my clients with my "1 hour of time"
I found a range I was comfortable with and went with it, I actually raised my billing rate after 2 months at...
My #1 tip would be to enjoy what you do.
This is your chance to "be your own boss", you better really enjoy what you're doing or you may be wasting your time. ;)
Facebook is top but G + took a small hit and Twitter is still climbing every week!
I wouldn't say either are useless but you should always have higher quality stat tracking for your own personal website.
You can use adwords to build traffic to your landing page, but not directory to an affiliate link itself.
It's nice to get into dmoz because of the exposure to other directories but it's nothing to lose sleep over.
I do still think link directories are a good thing, they do help sites get indexed no...
How exactly does your website increase website visitors?
It looks to me to just be an affiliate link from your site :(
I haven't been impressed with google plus at all. I don't mind the badges on my site but the social networking site is a bust IMO.
I've always loved stumbleupon and the traffic it's brought ;)
Every little bit helps in my opinion. You'll get much better results if you can use unique articles with quality sites.
I wish I could disable the live search, that thing annoys me!
It's working now.. :(
I have a few things to say, one is it's going to be hard to run an admin site so best of luck with that.
I would make the forum a bit wider, you are losing some valuable space in the left hand...
flippa isn't loading for some reason :(
What is the url for the forum?
This is how I view articles submitting to ezine as well. We may not get much from the site itself but I've seen our content pulled from ezine with links intact on several other websites and blogs....
I'm more impressed with breaking the record
Charlie Sheen Sets New Guinness World Record for Twitter
it'll be tough to beat that
I updated and I dig the admin bar
other than that I haven't noticed much
I don't mind the updates at all in word press, they can all be done from inside the admin panel with very little issues.
Welcome to the forums, do you have a website or anything up right now?
great looking style guys and gals of netbuilders :)
what makes you say that?
I mean why would they be bigger this year, over 2010?
Does a PR4 make the forum better?
did it improve your experience? :)
It depends on the forum owner, most forums can be setup as no-follow or not.
I have mine setup that way because the members don't really care about links. If it was a webmaster forum, I would make...
I haven't watched the green bar in 2 years :)
I just checked and my blog and forum both have good ranking, that's all I care about and you should as well ;)
Welcome to the forums Rakesh :)
Interesting Will, have you used this application before?
I've used OpenX and suggest it, it's a great free ad managing platform. I've ran the marketplace ads on a site but only by mistake because I didn't see that I had enabled it. I think you can filter...
Nice post, what do you use for this? "Content rewrite script."
Your best bet is to check the Google Webmaster Tools if you want to see all backlinks that Google knows about. ;)
well I guess that's what opinions are for :)
marketing/advertising/promotion can be done without a product in mind.
I promote my sites all the time, but I guess you could say my "product" would...
I signed up for the Market Samurai trial, but never really used it :(
I'll try and check it out again if I ever find a way to invent more time
thx for the seo glasses mention, I bookmarked that...
I don't even use the google toolbar anymore, page rank is grossly over amped up IMO.
I'd rather focus on conversion and building solid traffic, over PR anyday.
I use stumple upon all the time and get a decent amount of traffic.
It isn't always very targeted though.
I like a little color on the usernames as well, but I can see the point made to make every user feel the same.
I usually have a few folders full of sites on my browser, I'd say around 50 or so.
I did a lot of relaxing and cleaned house :)
I wish next weekend was another 3 day weekend!
Welcome to NB Ahmad :)
offpage seo is an oxymoron ;)
you can't optimize a page that you don't control.
It's called marketing :)
I tried it and wasn't impressed
email works just fine for what I need
Always love your video's Kevin, great job with them!
nice looking fish and boat as well :)
you must put "http://" in the URL ;)
I also agree that outsourcing will always be available. "Outsourcing" something doesn't necessarily mean poor quality.
I don't see Google or any search engine discounting sites that used outsourced...
I see the question marks as well, did you copy it from a word doc or anything?
Thanks for the tips Will.
I've found that leaderboards and the skyscraper ads preformed better for me as well, compared to smaller ad units.
Welcome to NB, do you own an argument forum?
enjoy the place, let us know if you have any questions
I see you still have it, looking to sell it still?
Awesome contest Will, NetBuilders Does ROCK!
.NET would get my vote
PHP is nice to start on, but it seems the "big boys" use .NET
also has been around since 97 :thumbup:
looks like the URL has been around since 1996
Welcome to the forums EvenP
this is not true
I would still suggest the site to directories, just not ones that require a link back.
There are some great niche directories out there and shouldn't be passed up. :thumbsup:
I like it, looks good IMO
I like the lightbox effect
do you have a page with links to the other 49 sites?
don't waste your time4 on reciprocal links
can you show us this "link page" your working on?
is there a working demo for this?
thanks, I've bookmarked this page and will check it out later from home.
I focus on the content of a blog first, then to the theme. In fact, I usually change my themes a few times during the blogs life until I find one I like. The content will always be there no matter...
Welcome to the forums Ryan, can you link us to your mashable profile, or one of your post?
Looking forward to seeing your post on NB :)
The only forum I'm running is one I started 4 months ago, General Forums is a nice site I put up to ease my forum addiction. :rofl::panic::thumbsup:
The only thing holding it back is a little bit...
never heard of it
do you like to write with a pen or pencil ?
Welcome to the forums, interesting name you have :D
Congrats on passing your competition, just another reason why forums are wonderful. :)
oh okay, got ya
other then that, I thought it was Very slick.
any chance of a analytic or google webmaster tools version as well? That would :punk:
I can't login to it now :(
it says it's a bad pass, I have no option to log out or change accounts, at least none that I see.
Welcome to NB Content Employer, I'm always looking for good writers, maybe we can chat sometime :)
Enjoy this place, it's an awesome forum
Welcome to NB Kishor, DP is an okay forum but Net Builders is solid quality content all the way through. :)
Enjoy your stay, post any questions you may have.
Great app Hendricius, I downloaded it the other day when you posted it on facebook. :)
It's an app I've been wanting for a while, an adsense one that is.
It would be nice if there was a good app...
Welcome to the forums zinc, hoping to see some great post from you :)
is this a warez site? if not, I may be interested
ps.. the query you linked to is the site: command, showing the indexed pages, which is only 6500 right now
the link: command doesn't work very...
I've seen a LOT of people using wordpress as their article directory.
We all know how good wordpress can be for SEO, it's not surprising that it's being used IMO.
the most important thing for me is family
money can't buy happiness ;)
I would rather have a loving close family then money any day ;)
Some of you know my from my old forum where I have over 300 documented clients and many happy testimonials.
I'm still doing some vBulletin work, just not as much since I now have a full time job...
do you like winter?
Welcome to Netbuilders friend :)
we're all crazy about forums as well, you should fit in just fine :p
It's better to get one way links if you can. Posting good linkbait is a great way to get tons of one way links, and then using social media to make it go viral and congrats, you've crashed your...
How many times have you heard of someone linking back to a comment? People will link back to a good blog post, and comment on that post.
It's far better to write a good blog post, then spend time...
Welcome to the forums Nicole from TX :)
I've thought about buying a month membership so I could have a few more links and change my title, but it's just a bit high for me.
I've purchased or support several forums, I don't mind doing it,...
correct file names and alt tags are important for image optimzation
Welcome to the forums, I've lived in IL before, was up north in a town called Geneseo. :)
Enjoy the place, this is a great forum ;)
I'm interested in purchasing it, can you send me a link to some stats?
specifically, referral stats
I would agree with this to a point, but if all you do is spam twitter, you may lose your account if Twitter catches on.
I've seen accounts with 50k followers vanish because all their post were like...
This is interesting, although I've never found much value in a users profile, in fact I comment them out via our robots.txt file. :-\
The number of followers really doesn't matter if you don't interact with a good chunk of them.
Take me for example, I have a few followers right now but I would rather have 10 good ppl that I chat...
I would try using openX so you can manage ads across all types of websites.
I can't wait till all the spammers and auto-posters are off of Twitter ;)
I think you are much better off if you interact with your followers, send them a link to your site every now and then, I...
I like IPB, I've used it for a few years. (although I haven't opened it up in a few months)
I would buy it again if I had to, it's a great product IMO
okay, I'll bite
1 cent from me
who is the url registered with?
the mods dont' just "start to hate you" :rofl:
I've thought about buying the membership just for the extra sig links
I don't use anything else that's included.
welcome to the forums
how did a mod scam u?
I've purchased half of these, please edit the thread to remove the title
You can have mine for 40 a month, but it's with over 8,000 post and I post just about every day.
I know it isn't single digits, but it's also a lot more post than you'll be able to get with 10 bucks...
nice catch, didn't they do a whois to see who did own the domain..lol
Welcome to NB Kates
how did you find this forum?
It was/is only a matter of time before their bubble popped ;)
it won't happen unless you're legit
don't you think others have thought about this too :woot:
I never said BMD was free, and in fact my last reply talked about the price
I still think it's the best option out there, google it if you don't want to click on my link, I'm not the only one who...
I guess it's all relative
it didn't seem like that much money for me, and has paid for itself over and over since my first purchase.
I know I've bought other items that I haven't gotten as much use...
I'm interested to see what you have left, may be able to pick up a few from you.
it looks good, but I've been using Bookmarking Demon for over a year and it's fabulous
I think it bookmarks close to 100 sites now for me.
the title is a bit long for me, but other than that the page looks "okay"
Great post, I used the automatic backup plugin as well, a great tool!
Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy your stay :)
You Have 1461 Unread Posts for me, it's been a while since I've visited :(
I listen to it while I'm driving, and I'll pull it up at work and listen to it online
KQRC - Homepage
It's been great for me, but I would never buy an ebook from anywhere ;)
I've purchased links, and wordpress styles from the v7n marketplace and never had a problem.
I use Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin and get a good deal of business and meet tons of awesome people from it.
I like the vbulletin suite a lot!
I'd setup a site right now if I had the time
you can download it at Purchase vBulletin, the most powerful forum software available. ;)
Welcome to the forums :)
Not a bad tool, but I like yahoo or google webmaster tools for better results.
for some reason the page rank on my forum is always a month behind
I don't even follow it anymore :|
might want to update your DP listing
you can have 2 links ;)
I'm a professor at being awesome
I don't, and I consider it spamming as well
I have sent messages out about tweetups tho several times, but I try to always change the wording up some.

I've seen this one before, if not, than one close to it.
Very cool stuff

Affiliate Marketing Blog HeadQuarters
meta descriptions are still important :thumbsup:
anything is possible
I think both forums have their positive section, I like NB for different reason that I like DP
what do you think is going to get indexed?
you have one page, and it has an image on it and that's it!
you don't have any backlinks to the site
do I need to go on?
this is the tool I use, it's very nice and fast

The meta descriptions are very important, but I'm always said the keywords were worthless even for other search engines.
I get 75-80% of my traffic from google, I don't really...
Good to see you around NB's Aaron :)
Google has announced that they don't care about meta="keywords"
YouTube - Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking

Digital Products Retailer: Affiliate Program & Sell Online - ClickBank is another good one to go along with cj.com
I agree with Will, you should find out why you're getting rejected and fix that.
can you send me a list of the domains and some general traffic details
if there are more than 20 out bound links, please don't send those url's
I don't really check DP these days, just every now and than I'll do a search for Twitter or vBulletin, but it being down doesn't really bother me ;)
it looks like this http://www.netbuilders.org/images/colortheory/buttons/report.gif :thumbsup:
I suggest staying away from this type of site ;)
I unfollow everyone that I see post "what to get 100's of followers, check this site out...."
It's far better to have 100 followers that are...
you can always use the "report" button if you want the admin to see something ;)

Welcome to the forums Ashley :)
300$+ a year..lol
good luck with that :D
I agree, and it might of been a good idea to let the mods know you wanted to do this. Not sure it would of helped, but it might of ;)
anyways, netbuilders is a better nicer forum :clap:
I don't really care if they use the info I've searched for..lol
the best way to not be tracked as easy is to sign out of google when your searching.
If you're always signed in, you can look back...
vBulletin or IPB is my choice hands down
but if I was going free, I'm still a phpbb fan over smf, mybb or anything else
my question is, do you interact with the 76,000 ppl that you follow too :rolleyes:
Congrats to everyone :)
Welcome to the forums Nitesh :)
I've never ONCE had that problem and I've been using phpld for a few years now (since before they started offering a paid version :woot:)
I suggest going with phpld, and what is it 25$? I would go...
the domain extension will have zero effect on search engine ranking
if the .com is taken and you want that exact domain, I would go with the .org
welcome to the forums Trudgernaught :)
75$ a year :O
good luck with your investment :)
I use trillian astra with yahoo, msn and aim
but I use twitter to chat more than anything
I would say both, sig links are good for the backlinks, but any images you can post are good for building your brand.
I've been working for myself for the past 3 years offering services to forum owners that eitehr wanted me to modify their site, or gain traffic.
I now how have mon-fri job, but it's still in web :D
so is the internet ;)
Welcome to the forums!
I wouldn't say your account is the most popular adult one bud ;)
there are accounts with 100's of thousands ;)
@vBSetup is my account :) (about 10k)
here is a great analytic site that I've been using for years to track my longtail
Keyword Tool | HitTail keyword tool
I don't care for the name, so I would sell
if you don't have time to update it, I would sell
and if you have a buyer in mind already, I would sell :D
my family is what helps my will power
btw, I thought this was going to be "will.spencer" power :p
NB doesn't take anywhere near 7 seconds for me to load, if it did, I probably wouldn't visit :(
my average time for vBsetup was under 2 seconds

hmm, bragging about getting banned for spamming
I'm sure he does, I was talking about the OP and then I removed that comment
but is "stickycarrots" shoemoney?
oh so your shoemoney I take it from the link??..lol
Why don't you use the site he talked about? it isn't the revtweet one that you linked to in the first post
no squares on our phones :D
There are no companies paying 200$+ for one tweet :rofl:
the tweet to make money sites are a big joke IMO
You should use Twitter to socialize, not to just try and get a few clicks
you'll get much more out of it if you use Twitter correctly ;)
you can have a spot in mine for 45$ a month
I used it on my laptop that was running ubuntu, but I sold that laptop, so I don't use it anymore
Directories are still good, I highly suggest niche directories though ;)
google will most likely be everyones answer, although I've seen more and more traffic from bing lately
I didn't have any problems to begin with, but I'll go a head and update :)
7/10 unless it's you, than a 10/10 :)
I've also started an adwords campaign as well as a facebook one.
This isn't the first adwords campaign I've ran, the first few I ran like it sounds like you are, with tons and tons of keywords. This...
Here are some criteria when I'm looking to buy links for myself or clients

Ah I see what type of reference post you're talking about now Will. I was thinking something else.
I think something has to be said about the headline as well, with the two articles above maybe...
I like this tool in the OP, I also like the ones Will posted :)
I don't mind this info being posted in one place (site) if it's all public info anyways, why not make it easier to access.
I can understand the frustration with linkbait, but I've had some of the best campaigns with reference threads.
What you have to do is make some great content that isn't posted anywhere else, or...
I think it looks great
I've never had a problem getting my blogs or forums listed in dmoz, maybe I just picked the lucky categories :)
I would stay far away from godaddy hosting
I've been using Fluid Hosting: FreeBSD and Windows Hosting for a few years and have been very happy with them

great idea for a contest, I've thought about trying to run an SEO contest on my site but finding the time is the hard part.lol
