Advice wanted - Best SEO for a new forum

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by overhere, Jun 20, 2020.

    Hi all

    I have launched a new forum based on the forex market and forex traders, resources etc. I am using the XenForo script.

    The website sits on U.S. servers and is for the global (related) audience.

    Whats is the best way to start getting relative people on to the forum to start posting? I do already have some activity on it but need to really get it going.

    Which SEO providers would be best for this? Or linking companies?

    suggestions please?

    According to me
    First of all hire some people or talk in your circle for post informative and related contents by thread or reply to your forums. Because If user see there many threads and replies then he will convenience to register himself (genuine visitors).

    If your forum start to get informative contents according to your keywords then start link building work to increase reputation of websites. As you said that your niche is Forex so you can get many websites related to business, finance, trading etc. Try to get backlinks from some reputed websites.

    As i SETUP once xenforo for one of our client so can say that its very good script and responsive also ..... There can be more good script but according to me my experience this forums script have some additional features which are not available in other ..... Its helps specially in on page optimization, Payment option, sitemap, rss feed etc. by default is additional.

    If your forums getting good contents and you are working on link building also then after little time you will get good response online.

    If have not more ideas or have not enough time to work on forums and you want to hire any company to promote your forums then in DP you can start thread in services category with your requirement ...... i think here many persons, firm and company who can help you to build online reputation and popularity.

    You need to get "influencers" to mention the forum, or to have an AMA on your forum - and get them to promote it to their followers.

    I'm assuming you have some credibility in this field - be outspoken about your knowledge, get people interested in you, personally.

    @sarahk do you think "influencers" will mention his forum? I dont think anyone would just share their audience with anyone else except for the time he offers them something out of the said forum.

    If you really promote your forum then I think best way to market it is through traditional and digitally. You can ask people in your circle (if you belong to the same circle as your forums' audience) to get on the forum and do tell them why is it beneficial for them. Secondly, look at social channels, groups, discussions and mention your forum there. Make one good thread on your forum weekly that should cover weekly round-up and provide the market's overview and predictions and then share that thread in the groups that are relevant. You will have followers. Slowly, but surely.

    I'm working on the basis that the OP has a name and reputation in the field of forex - so yes.

    If the OP doesn't then I'd need to look at the business plan to get just why this forex forum is special and better than the others that already exist. Once I have that info I can give more targetted info.

    What about Quora ads? I think it is a good option

    Ah yes, I didnt think about it like that. I was more thinking of on the basis of that a forex guy who is looking to build this forum and its audience. But, yes until and unless there is enough information one can only assume.
