      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

Maybe reach out to some bloggers to see if they would recommend your forum. Get people to come by having good solid rules so there isn't a lot of spam.

Show up daily, do lots of work... defer your life... turn off the TV.  Turn off the games...

Now that I have your somewhat undivided attention --- plan and schedule.

Tutorials are good, but takes a ton of time or spend invest.  They aren't guaranteed to be an ROI thing either and most take a good long while to get seen, unless they get out there on something noisy.  Meaning it has to be some hipster / cutting edge / highly interesting.

Hello,

In addition do not forget to choose and insert keywords and description in your html code even if it is deprecated that still counts.

I agree with the write good content part, also doing some SEO is good. Check out this tool, WooRank.com. It will give you a free SEO analysis of your website with good pointers on things you may have missed.

Good content and make sure to update it regularly. People will most likely check on it they see that it's always updated.
