I know a lot of people hit the home page and read it and then leave.
After your done checking out the home page, at least click on something so you load another page of the site. Then leave.
Another great thing to do to help is to use the ShareThis at the bottom of each post. Share it to places like Digg, StumbleUpon, reddit, etc.
Here is a forum Fan Userbar Jay made. Please re-upload if you use it.
Been doing my fair share of advertising, hope it helps
I think I'm doing a decent job at what you mentioned above.
We (we play MMOs, FFXI then WoW, soon it will be WoW + FFXIV) also have a sticky up in our Gaming section that directs folks to this site. It's hard to say how much it has helped, as our current members don't seem to be big fans of forums and posting and what not. But I figure, every little bit helps, right? We do get, imho, decent traffic. So hopefully some of them pass by.
This site is great imo. I like the layout and the information seems to be fan provided. Easy to sift through what interests me and what doesn't. No one is grinding any sort of political gaming agenda either, hehe.
The thing I like the most and I wish I could implement a similar system on our forums, is the point system you have. I want our members to check and contribute on our forums regularly. It's hard to keep track of and that makes it hard to award people accordingly.
Oh! Probably worth noting that Eddie made the original post and I stickied it hehe. He brought this site to my attention.
That great, thanks for the link back Markus! The points system has been great since I started it. It was tuff to get it working correctly in the forums though. But now it's working great. Wasn't to hard to get it working in the new community part of the site, which was nice.
lol yea I belonged to the same LS group as Markus like 3-4 years ago in FFXI. Even though the LS has dissolved and moved on, many of us still keep in touch :p
