No, i'm a proper website owner, not spammer http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
I have a Contact page, and it is quite an essential part of any website.
It depends what would be the project. If it is thinking of a domain, then I think of it myself, if its design then I incorporate what I have seen into my work.
In total, from graphic design (online), I have received almost $500 (18 months).
99designs has got me a little over $250 from a project I completed with someone else. Great money and worth a shot if you are good at design.
Just a heads up, indexed Google backlinks are determined by searching your site with this query:
Heard quite a few bad reviews on HostGator so I have avoided them. Also, prices seem quite high in comparison.
Meta tag is very important for SEO, it gives you good search engines results. I recommended always use meta tags in forums or in site.
Yes, I do. Just some information "about us" and some things to help promote us.
It's not really PR8. The PR8 url gives power to its subdomains and so its not a full PR8, just a very slim portion. I wouldn't spend too much time on this.
Yeah, everyone should as that's where people are going to find your website and if people can't, you've just blocked yourself to about 70% of potential traffic.
I do look down at forums, especially when they have crappy sub links.
Nope, I rarely swear on forums. Don't actually remember the last time I swore on forums.
I'm quite lucky to be an active member on many forums I am on. I usually speak for the many hundreds of members who feel intimidated by a power hungry moderating team. Even if I get the hit, at least...
Nothing is 100%, and if 10 millions people in Aus, the only thing is collect all the 10millions sample to give you the high confident level. However, during the data collecting, there have some...
They make the website slow, and many hosts don't allow them. I personally do not like them being used on forums. That's what the forum is for; discussion.
It does depend on size, but also time zone. Its best to have at least 1 staff with moderating powers on in case of a spam attack, or users asking questions.
I don't know coding really (well some HTML and that's it) and I can install mods without any problems http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
I tend to prefer laptops, since I'm usually on the go.
Then you shall understand all about this, this is very common used, 10 sample is enough for you to judge for million. And you shall very clear about this since the statistic can be understand by...
Totally agree and this is what exactly what i trying to say.
And that's why i dont agree with the below
lol.......Check on their baclink, they all have tons of quality backlink, not the damain name itself make them into the #1, i think you know about this since you are IT/SEO guys.
Seems it is hard for me to explain to you according to sample size but it doesnt matter since many people dont actually understand about this. By the way, you might visit...
I agreed that alexa ranking is not accurate enough but i dont think that's so much tolerant.
I do this research before, and very hard to get a domain name with high competitive keyword can...
Let answer your question
Question: If Microsoft has 30,000,000,000/70,000,000,000 hits (43%) are from Google and Admin Community has 5,000/10,000 hits (50%) from Google, does that mean AC is...
If you think 10 can not present the actual, then how many are enough to represent the actual? 10000? 20000? 30000?
You can never get the actual, if you dont believed, mark down your current...
How you "sure" about this? you are google employee?
The "report" is made by the top management, and all the company around the world is trying to get less man power if possible to save the...
I not sure about this but just check on the webmasterforum.com, the alexa ranking is 1116773 which is much lower than admin community.
Well done Richard!
Not really, if someone have 20/40 hits from google and you have 20000/40000 are same in maths. If you are statistical person, you should know 10 samples are good enough for you to get the result. The...
This is the human being, you are only report those "competitor" and i can tell you most of the people that report to google are spammer, they are trying to use this "technique" to beat their...
Unfortunately, most of the DMOZ editor are busy and the rest who are "free" mostly are those editor that require some fee to go through your website
I agree if you are talking about low competition keyword or keyword phrase.
If your site is just high competition keyword such as webmaster forum, casino etc , i afraid it not going to happen.
With the monthly coupon NameCheap .com are $8.81, a number I have memorized http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mellow.gif
When I buy a new .com...
I haven't bought anything from GoDaddy, though I have a few domains parked on GoDaddy.
Out of the two, I prefer Hotmail.
Vista at home, 7 at work.
On a normal day, I'd spend about 7 hours.
Depends on the reason. Generally, I change once per 2 years to keep up with everything.
I prefer laptops because I'm always on the go.
who is that sbfc?
I don't know. I wouldn't want a strict admin, but a funny admin may be bad when it comes to dealing with strict situations. However, some humour is better than none...
From one ranked "webpage", I've gotten about 3.
Nope, and I don't plan to http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
Thank you Callum!
Programming to make money? I've written up about 10 snippets earning me $25.
Yes, all the website listed is old website, what i say is about new website, it getting harder and harder to get listed in DMOZ nowadays
That's true but what can s/he say if 7 out of 10 is from google search?
S/he can only say 70%
No, never. Google not paying me to work for them, let's their worker do the job
Hey lifeplayer, welcome to Admin Community.
Welcome to AC. Hope to see you around.
Welcome to Admin Community. Please enjoy your stay.
Its either a main keyword in there, or a complete Web 2.0 domain. Nothing in between.
Out of the two, it would definitely be the .co.cc. Its not that bad of a second level domain, and I've see some great ones like box.co.cc go for $1000.
To be perfectly honest though, if you wanted good post exchanges, The Admin Zone actually has some really good guys there.
You could always get a used license. Those are usually cheaper.
No, I'm not really a "dobber".
It also depends on how much traffic. If you have 10 hits only, and 7 of them are from Google, then saying 70% is a little misleading.
This is very interesting, i submit my site to DMOZ for more than 1 year still no reply.
Just wondering someone successfully get into the DMOZ
vBulletin 4 = big fail. Though it's about time they get an update. It's sort of a vB4 version of their rather monochromatic style.
It was "no posting in a different color; you can't use bold; you can't have a signature; you can't redirect members to another link/page (considered ordering members, even if it was respectful)". All...
When i was banned because i suggested to the owner to make a new section.
He banned me for "telling staff what to do/ordering staff".
Introductions at the bottom are quite bad in my opinion.
I use signatures, but really, it depends on the size.
If I own one, then very seriously.
I try not to, but I give everyone a chance.
I agree with sazhazey. You can choose to run 10 sites, but are all 10 sites ranking well, have high activity or have great income? I wouldn't think so.
It would be a good thing if they knew how to code, so they can install mods or change the design.
I just merge them. No use wasting a topic by deleting them.
It depends on the genre. Sometimes admins have their own role for the forum, and need to be distinguished.
People do, especially when they constantly look at forums.
Sometimes. I don't mind if it doesn't have one, but having one shows care towards impressions.
I don't have a forum, but a Wordpress blog. I use it a lot, especially moderating spam, and I know it like the back of my hand...
Depends on the genre. If its a fairly default genre, then I'd say it needs something unique. If the genre helps me in some way, then I couldn't care less about the design.
I would say helping members out where possible. If a member asks a question, then the admin should answer it. Also, when PM-ing a member, they should have some sort of courtesy and proper emailing...
I think everyone should have some sort of avatar, or something to distinguish them from others. It makes the site look friendly and people will be more willing to join.
You shouldn't really expect posting packages to be the best thing ever. It looks fake from a visitor point of view, as no one just signs up and makes 5 quality posts and then leaves.
Find out how your domain is worth: Domain Appraisals
Every forum has competition, regardless of what genre. Of course if its one about yourself then you may not have too much related competition, but every forum does have competition.
i was suspended once because of services that says they'd get followers for my account. theyre tweeting successively using myaccount.
Any more feedback?
Barely, but I do get some searches resulting in a WA page.
I am using the free package of WHF and its great!
Yes sir. I co-administrate WHF and we provide rates which you would probably not see anywhere else, in respect to the quality of uptime and speed....
Forumotion is terrible. That's my final word.
Its decent, easy to style, but I wouldn't recommend a long term use of MyBB.
Out of the two, I'd recommend MyBB due to its simplicity, yet its technicality over SMF. Also, you'd probably find more people choosing MyBB over SMF.
I would love to get my hands on a piece of IPB software.
Yes, its clearly the best blogging software.
I don't dislike it as a member, but as the admin, its quite a hassle.
I prefer IPB over all other software, and then VB or PHPBB. Other than that, I probably stick away from ZetaBoards, Forumotion, and SMF.
Rarely now. I am keeping external links to a minimum.
I would want to do this, but the time, money and target audience would be hard to achieve.
Signatures and blogging communities.
Feel free to connect up with me @ http://twitter.com/dlseo
I use it for my website, and talking to online friends.
I do, even though its nofollow, no direct URL to your site and hard to get onto the front page. Nonetheless, one hit is better than nothing.
I use it, just to try and get a few hits from it. Never cared seriously.
Just Twitter for now. May expand later down the track.
Maybe 30 or so per tweet.
Funnily enough, I tested this earlier today. Found it to be dodgy and unstable (plugin), so I removed it. Its a little blackhat, but it can work out to be a major money making difference for you.
So far this month, I've earned $7.50.
Its improving, but still could be worked on.
Its a little overrated, but you can't complain about having a PR8 domain, can't you?
Haven't spent a single cent, but a domain would probably be part of SEO, as its a SEO domain.
Ok I'm not a fancy programmer and not quite up there in the world of google slang, how would I tell google my site exists. What steps should I take to get good searches on google please?
You should definitely use the description meta tag, or use the noodp robots tag.
Usually this is what happens for any site.
Nope, and don't plan to. I've worked too hard to attempt to get banned.
How Long for Google to Index? Maybe 5 hours, 18 at the most.
I hope I am. Submitted a few weeks ago. It should be about 6 months before I know http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
Content is king, as well as internal linking.
TheN.com is by far the best domain there. You'd be blind to not choose a LLLL.com domain and it will get you a better return if you choose to sell. Plus, why choose a 19 letter domain over a 4 letter...
It will most certainly be slow and they will have to rely on help from the host they are hosted with.
One or two. I previously sold a domain for $60 when I bought it for $8.81 with a coupon http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
Namecheap for me, plus they have coupons which reduce the cost even more.
.com unless its some premium domain. I'd love to have blog.net even though its a .net, not a .com though.
The usual: 100% uptime, good support and move database etc. without cost.
The most was $15.
I am with WebHostingFox.com.
Zero. I co-own the host, so I get free hosting. http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif
I currently own 4 domains.
Yes, it wasn't a pleasant experience. Terrible service and support.
Domain would be worth about $30.
No, if I were to have 50k members, it would be a hassle.
Depends. If there are 20 active (20k+ posts) and one inactive forum, I wouldn't be turned off. It may be because its a new forum, or something special about to be made.
It would be the [url] BBCode.
Personally, activity levels and whether the niche of the forum appeals to me determines whether I join a forum.
I've seen this, and I would leave the forum.
Terrible thing. Slows things down and a major turn off for me.
The thing is that you wouldn't mind advertising to everyone, but you hate it when someone advertises to you.
I would say light themes, as its clear to read things.
Definitely. You'd think the admin wants more posts and members, but having admin activation is a major turnoff.
Yeah, its bad when trying to post an introduction. Don't really feel welcome then.
I've been banned for the stupidest of all reasons.
The only time I have been banned was because of some stupid administrator. You'd think posting secret on a visible forum to guests...
Nope, though I do know a forum that does, as well as in the signature. You can float images in your signature, so you could have some redirect to your site if they open a topic with your reply in it....
I don't think publicizing these messages are good for you as someone sooner or later will realize its them you are talking about.
Plenty, but not too much. As long as its civil, then everything is fine.
I try not to, but if they are inactive, it leaves no choice.
I haven't experienced this, but if its harsh, I would archive them, as opposed to deleting.
Yes, but we try not to.
Plenty. I try to compare and keep up to date with new features and try to top them.
I haven't seen one yet.
I have to have good relations with clients, especially with live support and the support forum.
How mature an admin are you? http://www.admincommunity.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif
Very little. As long as I get traffic, I'll be happy.
Not many at all. Maybe once a month.
1:8 for the support forum.
If there was a troll on my forum, I would send them a PM regarding behaviour and if it was to continue, I would ban them.
I rarely join forums anymore. There would be heaps, as I am not interested in them, but if I were to choose one, it would be home economics type forums (sewing, cooking etc.)
Webmasters, any website owner looking to succeed and Google.
I don't really care as long as its all civil.
2 moderators and 4 admins (hosting company support forum, so everyone has a set role).
I would translate it then send the user a PM regarding poor post quality.
Nope, what will you be trying to achieve?
Yes, I try to be as formal as I can, unless I know them really well, and can start a conversation really quickly.
Yes. I don't want them to waste their personal life for something virtual. So if they are young, school is way more important. If they work, I should respect the fact that they are making a living.
On the active forums I am on, they are never over-moderated. Sometimes I feel they are under-moderated.
Lets see. For the support forum:
1,613 posts - 210 threads - 49 members
Cheers Sbfc. It was actually there by default, so I thought it seemed fine. Maybe a personal preference. Thanks.
