  1. advertising hummy.tv

    I am wondering - would it be worth putting up a post on DS and AV forums to announce hummy.tv and encourage folks to participate ? or is that bad form :lol:

    yes they get a bit funny we need to advertise this site so people know there is somewhere to get help from also we need humax support on here if we can get it
     
  6. Re: advertising hummy.tv

    I did make a post but the DS moderators removed it - for advertising! I did suspect that they may object but I think that this was more of a generic "do not advertise other sites" email rather than anything more.

    I suggest that we make sure that we make regular referrals to hummy.tv on any DS or AVforum posts.

    Re: advertising hummy.tv

    hummy.org you had to register to get to the downloads/web sites, the result was you started to post (ie. me), i may never have registered if i didnt want the downloads.

    this site needs to get has many people registered

    more posts = more hits

    we need this site ( im lazy and i like things easy to find )

    Hi

    Just checked the source code and notice that the meta info has not been filled in; IIRC keywords are one of the major things bots look at to rate a site, would it help our rankings rise to fill the meta data in?

    Yes Michael has the permissions to upload the necessary files to the server.

    If you click on VIEW and then PAGE SOURCE you will see the HTML that displays the page, the code that needs altering is;

    <meta name="copyright" content="2000, 2002, 2005, 2007 phpBB Group" />
    <meta name="keywords" content="" />
    <meta name="description" content="" />

    These are from one of my sites (http://www.rbdslf.org.uk/);

    <META NAME="description" CONTENT=" The RBDSLF is a voluntary group supporting access for people with disabilities into Sports and Leisure. The forum meets approximately 6 times a year. ">
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="RBDSLF, people, disabilities, Sports, Activity, participants, providers, voluntary, group, supporting, Rochdale, Middleton, Heywood, Parent, Carers, access, Coaches, Service, Managers, events, activities, developing ">

    Not sure how much it helps the ranking, but it might be worth a try.

    Re: advertising hummy.tv

    This site appears on a google search if you search for "hummy.tv" but no-one's going to be searching for it that way because they obviously already know the address anyway! What we need is for searches on "humax forum" and "hummy forum" to bring people here, which currently they don't (on Google at least).
