  Hey, I was wondering, how do you get ya traffic, I dont really wanna spend more then 20 minutes on the idea, but I would really like to know how to get traffic to my site!!!!! Got heaps of users for me forum, but none come more then once, and the only reason I have any users at all is due to putting my website in mates school books, they go once then bugger off!

  The way to get traffic (the honest and true way) is to make site content that is original, unique, and growing. That way, people have to come back.
  
  The way not to get traffic is to rely on your forum (all forums go bad when they get too much people, especially those that do not go to the main part ala Azure Heights) or to spamerize someone else's forum with stuff that you are doing like mad despite how much that web master keeps deleting your topics

  Of course, making a great website is a great way to attract people, MintMan, but only if people know about your website. If people know your website already, then MintMan's website works.
  
  For me, since people don't know my website, I have to promote advertising. As of now, my banner is on Purple Yoshi's Page (as is hers on my website), and I am a member of Yellow Yoshi and ZGamer's NLocator.
  
  But I don't know where your website stands.

  Well I wouldn't mind having my website advertised on someone elses site, but I wouldn't like adds on mine I got a links section but, with what, 2 links
  My website could fit in the sensless stupid section maybe a bit with games and music, but mainly sensless stoner s***, so what you call that? poo?

  My old site (before it got closed) used to pick up a lot of regular visits - mostly from sites with links to me such as MSS and HL:Pokémod, also when I'm doing big modelling projects (like I am now - go on click here to see what I mean) I find my visitor rate spikes for a couple of weeks. Those visitors would probably be more permanent if I had a msg board system... but geocities is no good for that... My old REL gym used to pick up a huge number too, so that was actually pretty good for visitor rates.
  
  ...Hey Kero what was that list of freehosts you keep flashing about? - maybe I could find one thats PHP or CGI compliant and set up a msg board.

  You may have the site, Eagle, but great to whom? You have a Super Mario Fan Club, do you not? That appeals to only a small portion of the web. Sure, lots of people like Mario, but how many actively seek it out? There are some, granted, but not many, and fewer band together in such a way as to migrate to your site.
  Problem is, when it comes to most video games, people usually only want strategies and cheats and the such, as larger archives such as Game FAQs usually drowns out other upstarts (unless those upstarts can compare in magnitude, which rarely happens).
  
  The place was Click Here Free, which I know you will be able to find PHP hosting on. Odd how so many hosts give free PHP and so few give free CGI when most pay sites charge for the PHP

  Hey MM, not that many people are interested in mythology either, come to it.
  
  Stupid Metroid has been drowning Mario in Metroids, er, wait, I'm confused. Anyhow, what was the point of your thing MintMan? Was it to discourage me, to insult my methods, or to insult my opinion? Whatever it is, and I don't care what it is really, for now it is not a very smart idea for me to be raving on about website popularity until I finally get the PHP/MySQL databases up on my website.
  
  Please, no comments on the PHP thing. And yet I will still stick true to my belief that advertising is the best way of promotion.

   Maybe it was to insult you as a person, LieutenantEagle. Because who really cares about your methods or opinions. You kinda sound lyke you’re trying to get up in Mints face there (his preverbal internet face- but still), I’m real sure he was trying to "discourage" you. -that was sarcasm...
   And advertisements get you no place fast. You need word of mouth and for that you need content that gets them coming back for more sweet lovin’

  Ahem...This is a discouragement. Not harmful in any way, it's just me being extremely sleepy at 3:47 AM...Soooo....
  
  
  - Discouragement -
  And you would know this HOW, Six?
  - Discouragement -
  I meant the part about "coming back for more sweet lovin'"
  
  Yes, I know it wasn't very good, considering all the hype and hoop-la...Oh god, I'm starting to think Robin Williams... Goodnight.

  Good'un, Cheet.
  
  
  And now, back to what this thread is about. You are right, Eagle. Most people are not interested in mythology. Luckily, however, many people are interested in the combined areas of monsters, mythology, adoptions centers, and on-line games. That raises the total something significantly.
  
  See, what you need is to make a good reason for people to promote for you. I have found that you can get some pretty good traffic from smaller sites -- family and friends of small web masters can filter through your larger site. All you need to do is give a reason for the people to link to you. Now this is where your creative thinking will come in. I dunno, something like a script that will track click-thru's from members' sites that give them some sort of little bonus.
