I have up-dated my website and whilst visitor numbers are growing, it is still not as expected. Any thoughts why?

Maybe it's because you're in too much of a hurry to plug your stuff Wink

Drachsi... I have removed your attempt to put your web address in your post as this is against board rules. We allow signatures to be added to your Profile, but only once you have enough posts under your belt.

May I suggest you have a read of the sticky posts here? Your 'introduction' suggests that you just skipped them...

I though I would use the "review my site" to gain useful comments before making other posts.
I'll make other posts until I can use the url for my site. Sorry for any offence.

Drachsi

Why go to that forum first when you are asked to post an intro here? Think about it... why should someone bother to review the site of a stranger? They might out of sheer kindness, but they'd be more likely to do so if you offered a little first.

Please... have a read of the sticky posts at the top of this forum. I'm guessing you still haven't.

Also have a read of Trev's sticky post at the top of the Website Review Forum.

That's a bit melodramatic, isn't it?

Yes naturally I would like to have my url shown, but the main reason for joining is to learn from others, and pass on ideas and possible solutions to others if I can help. Not all Forums are created equal.

Every forum has its own rules and guidelines, which is why it's always best to read them rather than jumping in and doing the wrong thing.

The people here are very welcoming to new members who want to be part of our community. But if, like you did, you give the impression that you are only here to plug your site(s), articles, or to foist URLs on us, then we tend not to like it very much.

We are more likely to be interested in what you're doing if you are part of the community rather than someone who just uses us as a place to promote their own stuff. And please.. can you stop making postings saying that you need to up your post count so you can post URLs? You're starting to sound like a broken record. Twisted Evil

Exactly, Kay.

The thing also is, that when you tried to post a clickable URL, a warning message would have come up saying that this was something you shouldn't do. You tried to circumvent this by posting just xyz.com (rather than the full URL), and you did this multiple times over. This left me with the task of going through all your posts, editing them to remove the web address.

So yes... it got my back up because you wasted my time. Anyway, without wishing to labour the point any further... welcome to Aardvark. Smile

Sorry, sorry. I have posted a help request about a new computer and hope people will still help.

That was clear anyway. Will I be notified if and when I am accepted, or has that already been decided?
