    Is Your Forum Boring?


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The code has been put in place, the topics carefully thought out and the first posts carefully written. So why isnít your forum getting more action from your traffic? At some point, itís a problem every site creator must face and a question that must be answered: is your forum boring?

    What They Are

    In the online world, forums are a collection of message boards which can be used by all. Each section of the forums has its own predetermined topic to encourage themed discussion on any given subject. Internet forums are highly popular, and many Web sites offer them. SoÖwhy should you go ahead and offer them on yours if so many others are already doing the same?

    Why Have Forums?

    Forums could potentially take up pages and pagesí worth of space on your site, and you might spend an awful lot of time just adding welcome messages and thinking of topics to include for these discussions. It is a lot of work to create user-friendly forums for online pages. But for many Web sites, the initial hassle of setting up forums is well worth the reward.

    Forums, first and foremost, are just that: a forum for your users. These message boards allow your traffic to speak with each other, sound off about the Web site and generally vent on any topic under the sun -- and sometimes the ones youíve listed for them to use, too. This gives visitors the chance to interact with each other, and any feature which allows traffic to do this is much to be desired. Todayís Internet is all about interaction and user contribution, and forums are a great way to achieve this end.

    Forums offer the interactive experience which is so important on the Internet right now, but they also provide you (and your site) with something much more valuable: lots and lots of free content. Rich with words that you donít have to write, forums give your site a great deal of keywords and keyword phrases: content. When it comes to content, thereís only one thing to know: the more of it you have on your site, the better. Forums allow you to provide an outlet for your visitors, an interactive experience. Almost by default, your site will grow in rich, traffic-driving content.
