We need to put up a sign

Post  Callisto on Wed Apr 10, 2013 3:09 pm

It just occurred to me that most of us found our way here via word of mouth because we had some means of reaching one another. But there are people who have no idea this forum exists. Aside from this being new, there's no meta data for search engines to bring it up in searches for Hellenismos.

Has anyone posted the link on their blog or FB or Twitter? I don't do the social networking thing (yep that's right, I don't have a Twitter or FB page). I did see someone asked "what happened" on the Hellenismos.us FB page but, of course, there was no response.

Is anyone friends with other Hellenismos bloggers, maybe ask them to give a mention that this forum exists?

Everyone with whom I have contact with is already here or has been informed.

On a side note, I have put more and more thought lately into swearing off social networking and deactivating my Facebook account. For me, it's a time sucker and a riffraff nest.

I've been much happier after following my New Years resolution to cut back my Internet usage, and I think I've reached the point where I'm ready to bid adieu to Facebook.

Don't get me started on social networking. No I've always viewed it as a waste of time and FB is just vile and corrupt. So good for you!

I was just thinking if people do use it, and/or write blogs, that links would be helpful because they'll get traffic, not just from friends but people searching for info on Hellenismos.

I put in the metatag to show up for searches on hellenismos, the problem is as a new site I am low on the list. Once there is more activity it will start to show up on more abiguous searches. On a side not I'm with you Callisto! This is the extent of my social networking. I have always viewed things like FB ans BS lol! never got into social networking and proud to say I never will.

This is the first time I've actually been in a forum with others not hooked on those social network sites. Yay! Usually people think it's weird or don't believe that I'm not tweeting and fb'ing because "everyone" does. Rolling Eyes

What will also help the forum to rise in search engine results is other more trafficked sites linking to it, that figures into the algorithms the search engines use. So yes, it will take a bit for it to show up. But yes, adding words like "hellenismos" "dodekatheon" "greek polytheism", "greek gods", "religion" etc. to meta tags will definitely help, along with the fact those and related words will become recurring as more posts are added.

Well, I use those services to keep in touch with lots of people across the world that I don't know personally, including members of this forum and from Tim's old forum. I'd love to move to something other then Facebook, but the trouble is getting everyone else to move to Google+ or Diapora*.
