Well there is a new group on FriendFeed today with a whopping subscriber number of one. I just created this new group to support my main blog, Best Web Image.
The group is public so anyone is welcome to post their tips or link to their blog posts after writing one. Hoping it will be an active lair of website tip.
To join the group you must be a member of FriendFeed, and then just go here: FriendFeed Group BWI.
Announcements, Webmaster Forums
Webmaster Forums, there are a ton of them out there for sure, and many all seem the same. They all have the same or similar topics, but really, many are quite different. Some are good for selling ad space, some are good for learning code, and some you can find great search engine advice. The list goes on. In an effort to find something for everyone I have created a category just for webmaster forums on this blog. I plan on reviewing as many as I can in hopes to find something just for you. This is post #1 on this site for the Forum category.
Webmaster Forum UK
This first review is about Webmaster Forum UK, also known as WebmasterServe. WebmasterServe is a relatively new forum, created in 2008, but it has been rapidly growing in recent months. The site keeps pretty busy with a lot of off topic chatter, a good sign for an active community. It’s main point of interest though, is the buy and sell websites section. The site owner is actively trying to improve this section, and it should be relatively easy based on the other marketplace activities going on this forum.
Something I also like about this forum, and I am guessing should be an interest to this sites readers are the webmaster tools they have. They have a pretty extensive list of generators to help you build things on the fly. Make forms, drop down menus, robot.txt files quickly as easily. They additionally have a SEO tool section.
For those of you in the U.S. know that this is a UK based forum. I know many of you like to join forums just to help spread the word about your own sites. A UK audience may be on the other side of the Atlantic, but a good rule of thumb for marketing online is to make 20% of your target audience global. Joining the forum on the other side of the world can give you new perspectives, and a new audience. Hope to see you there!
