Hello everyone. I am currently running a directory website in the medical services niche. I thought earlier today why not create a forum and let each business listing owner in my directory get the opportunity to partake in my forum and promote themselves. Lol but I have no idea how to do this. My concerns are: -When creating a forum do I need to create a separate website, like a forum.directory.com? -The most important question: How do I promote the forum and actually get people to take part in discussions? -SEO? The easiest way I can think of increasing SEO is with a lot of social sharing. My vision is that having an active forum will lure more users to my directory website and in the end make my website the authority for that specific niche. All of this will only be focused on my country and not world wide. Any advice on running forums from you guys would really be appreciated. Than you!
