Are discussion forums helpful to be listed in google?

Post by imranahmed »

Hello everyone,
I am trying to get listing in google but it seems to me very hard. I have seen many of websites running forums So I installed a forum on my website too, http://www.car-sale.org.uk/

Now I need to get some advice from all of developers, expertise, seo people about this technique.
If people come and join my forum, does it realy help if they leave a hyperlink on my website or it will decrease my ranking because they leaving a link and in return I am getting no link on their website.

Please feel free to discuss to help understand me the issue.

thanks in advance.

Do a good size linking campaign with other sites that have higher page rank. If you do this correctly and still write in forums and list your site in directories then your site will be picked up by google. Ranking high in google is another story, you will need to work harder on that!

got two things from this discussion, good PR and contents

Post by imranahmed »

Thanks for advice with useful information from both of you. I got two things from these dicussion, one useful contents, if contents are without links then it is more better.
Second I need to get good PR, to make my forum succesful.

But the thing is how to get good PR. Mostly website having a good PR asking for money. I have submitted my site to many engines but in most of them my website do not appear.
With high PR ranking website, its hard to get listed in their website.

Any idea how to get some good PR for my this website.

Directories will help you get a higher PR. Most directories have a good pr and if you can get listed on those, after a while your site will have a good pr. There are many places to get a good list of directories and here is one to start you off:

Good luck on getting a good PR!

It can take a very long time to list in dmoz. I know some sites had to wait for 8 months to get listed and some still are not listed years later. It all depends on your editor and how well your site looks to them.

And as far as directory submission is concerned you should check my website I will be publishing a long list of free non reciprocal directories.

Yep Akash, I checked your site. Its realy good. Especially you worked well on the contents section. I have submitted my site to few directories and search engine, hopefully my site will appear in those.

Links and PR

Post by imranahmed »

As we discussing about forums, but I got one question in my mind. What is more important when we talk about PR and back links. I have seen some websites who got more links but less PR.

PR or number of links

Post by imranahmed »

vistadivine wrote:Well Imran,

When we are talking about link poplarity it means the number of websites linking to your website but PageRank is totally different it is given by Google according to the quality of links not the quantity.

Suppose 100 people link to you then thats link popularity but suppose that only 1 website with PR 5 links to you then your PR will be 4 and this is quality.

Akash Kumar
Yep you are right Akash, I just checked one site, its number of links were small in counting but its PR was 6 and it was coming on top, thats is reason it make me wonder about PR quality.

If google counts PR and back links then why is ?

Post by imranahmed »

Ok We are talking about PR and backlinks. From our conversation google should strict with its rules. But why this website exentrix.co.uk is coming on first page and in most cases on top. Its PR is very low (1/10) and its number of BR are few too (less than 60). but I am monitoring this website always come on first page when we type in web design bradford or web designers bradford.

can anyone have idea of this. Is this google game or something else.

Are we looking for traffic or PR's

Post by imranahmed »

hmm, that no good. I guessed before that it could possible that this is hapening because exentrix website is very old and have good alexa rank.
But I am still confused with our submit express threads, if exentrix can come in google without PR and BR and then why not we stress and discuss those factors in our threads. Why not we use the same strategy of exentrix and get on number one. Our aim in these discussion forums is not to get good PR or BR's but a good traffic.
I will try to do bit more search on this. anyway thanks akash
