    Forums and Guestbooks - Are They Right For Your Website?

    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Are you wondering how adding a forum or guestbook to your website might help you attract and/or keep visitors?

    Here are a few things you might want to think about.


    A guestbook is a place where visitors can leave comments about your site. Good hosting companies have part loaded Guestbook software which you can easily add to your account such as the Viper Guestbook.

    Is a Guestbook right for your site?

    If you are not attracting many visitors you cannot expect a guestbook to help you attract more. You may be able to get friends and family to leave nice comments about the site, but you may be disappointed that you don't get too many off the cuff comments from your site visitors.

    If you are thinking about adding a Guestbook think carefully whether it is appropriate for your site. If your site is giving information about a hobby or a place, your visitors may wish to add their own remarks. We run a very successful Guestbook for a riding stables, where people like to share their experiences, or to make comments about the site (requesting more pictures for example).
