A quarter of a million posts in NBR's off-topic thread. Quake and tremble with inferiority Ras, these guys are pro-off-topicers ;-)

If you can manage 694 posts a day, you'll crack a quarter of a million in a year :D

From AliB in the Salmon Pond - thought I'd copy it to here.

Alasdair wrote:i guess growth will be the challenge, as john pointed out, how do we continue to attract new users.

google ranking will be critical, perhaps we could devise some link text for people to post on their own sites, sigs in other forums and social network sites to get our google positioning up

most of what google does is based on inbound links and i guess the best term for us is 'laptop forum' so if lots of us place an inbound link to this site with the text "Tech Pond - the ultimate laptop forum" that will go a long way

at present, google is showing 0 inbound links to this site so our rank will be pretty poor on all but searches for 'tech pond'

Two months old... we're doing good !

Things to note about this.. 1) we're only 2months old. 2) it's the UK traffic detail that counts 3) the weekly average going up or down.

We've also got an average post count of 76.5 per user (probably mainly made of of ras - but hey ho!) so more than two posts per person per day.

Thanks for the stats Pete, while we don't have a large community nor a rapidly growing one however on the other hand we have a very stable core of users with most people visiting the forum frequently.
