    My forum has aprox 9200 indexed pages, but only 14 - 40 visitors a day!!

    What can I do to increase the traffic to the forum?

    I have already tried the following:
    Linlprocessor
    Twitter
    Pingler
    bookmarking
    Web 2.0 properties
    2 -3 Linkbuilding services from BHW

    The forum is 6 years old, has PR1 DA 40 and PA 47

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated ;)

    Since when was the amount of indexed sites linked to traffic in any way?

    Not sure what you mean... but I think the more indexed pages the more visitors a website may get or not?

    Maybe your niche isn't huge at all or maybe google doesn't like your content because most of it really isn't that unique and valuable.

    Hi OP,

    The indexed pages in google has nothing to do with the traffic you receiving. How many monthly searches your keywords has? On which place is your Forum in google for this keywords? This are some of the questions you need to answer.

    And what rankings does these pages hold? What were the results of linkbuilding. I mean, if ordered here on BHW at least some ranking improvement should followed?


    Well it does if website is solid, has some decent authority and has unique content. The moment I add new content the inner pages are holding in 2-3 page in most cases. Boost your website authority(solid links, social to main domain) and results follow, they jump to first.

    Well, the keywords are extrmly difficult to rank even if they only have between 2000 and 4400 MS!! Not a sinlge of any of the BHW linkbuilding services here have been able to get just one of the 5 keyw to rank just between 1 - 5th spot!!

    In AdSense each lick is bwteen €9 and €12 so they are hard to rank I guess.

    That said with so many indexed pages there should still be some more traffic or not?

    RuthSam, you can send the URL of your forum I may take a quick look. Also please send the answers to these questions:
    1) Are you targeting any specific keywords if so list them.
    2) What services have you ordered, list them.

    9,400 pages is a nice amount but if you want to get traffic from your pages you will need a lot more.

    I read a thread a few months ago where someone scraped like 10 million+ pages and made a website with the content and that got like 100k+ UV a day so thats like 0.01 UV per page lol

    WOW...and that's with scraped content? Does google really index such crap? why isn't it considered duplicated content or just ignored?

    otherwise I can see that if I did the same in my niche, and put all the content I can get on a Wordpress blog from which I then link to the forum it should be possible to get a lot more visitors to the forum or what do you think?

    The fact that you have pages indexed doesn't mean they're in good position and are converting the users to your website. Instead of having 10k of pages, you'd rather have less pages but with high quality content.

    If you have 10000 pages just how targeted is your site?
    In all fairness it sounds like your site may not be as good as you think.


    EDIT: Hold on, is it a site or forum?
    If it is a forum, how many members do you have?

    If it's not a forum then one of two things are happening:

    1. Your indexed pages aren't ranking
    2. You're indexed/ranking for keywords with very low search volumes

    Actually, even if it was a forum, with that many indexed pages you should still be receiving a lot more then 14-40 visitors per day so I'm not really sure what your issue is.

    Well, as I initially explained IT IS A FORUM so it has 5700 members in total and aprox 36K forum threads and posts.

    Yeah, exactly what I thought, and my hope was someone would know or had any suggestion.

    What type of forum is it?
    Is it a specialized niche or an "anything goes" type forum?
    Unless it is highly specialized, then for a site that is 6 years old, all your stats look pretty low.

    What thread was that? It sounds like a great read.

    Sometimes google thinks the ORIGINAL source is scraped, btw.

    Actually! u do have 9200 Indexed pages but those sites are not ranked for the appropriate keywords. Although this is not a website in-depth it's forum all you've to focus on traffic generation rather than doing SEO. So try some PPC/ Advertising to your niche. Surely you'll get some good traffics to your forum.
