How to speed up the success rate of this SEO forum by 5x?
Making this platform content rich through blog postings. I am watching people are not posting blogs, just discussing a problem and then go away. In my view, admin should update the blog post guidelines for mutual benefits. What is your opinion or views?
Do you have more specific proposal?
Not sure what you mean, but we can't open blog posting for general public. That would mean 99,99% of blogs being spam (either hidden or all-out links).
There shouldn't be any harm by inviting general public as a guest blogger and write on SEO or related topics. There can be a guideline and after approval only the guest posts should be published.
Or, in whatever way, if we can make this platform more content rich! Keep brainstorming. @ms
When it comes to blog posts, there are some interesting topics to choose from that will surely attract traffic. We recommend that you use the surferseo tool when writing your posts. Once Posts are ready, it's a good idea to link to the article in other forums. Regarding guest posts, you can also suggest posts with topics most likely to be approved. If the administration is willing, we can write such a guest post ourselves :)
There are some updates coming for the forum during the winter and I am thinking about blog posts, but it won't be for everyone. Only really good standing members would be allowed to blog in order to avoid leveraging long-form format for backlink strategies without providing value for our users.
What is the motivation for random visitor to publish high quality unique content on a forum? In 99.99% cases it would be exploited to spam for links therefore a lot of work for mods. We have to take in account AI generated / spun content and how hard it actually is to identify.
I don't think it's a good idea and would stick with earning the option to publish articles first by posting on the forum. After reaching certain score, users would be allowed to post their blogposts.
Talking about updates. Active topics on top?
Ignore my last post here, found the button last posts :)
