I think a Facebook page (group) would be a good idea. It can contain links to HFS and NVA.

The simple answer is to have compelling content that people are looking for and is regularly updated...and then make it easy to find.

More specifically...

...there are some simple 'housekeeping' things to do to start with:

The 'Site Title' currently reads "Welcome to Hi-Fi Subjectivist - a hifi discussion group". If I do a Google search for 'hifi forum' then HFS does not appear on the first 2 pages of results (very few people will bother going beyond the first 2 pages). The 'Welcome to Hifi Subjectivist' part of the title is redundant because anyone who already knows the forum name, already knows where to find us. Then, looking at the rest of the wording...how many people would search for 'hifi discussion group' rather than 'forum'? The Site Title could be changed to something like:

'NVA HiFi Audio Forum Richard Dunn'

Next, the site doesn't seem to have a 'Site Description' submitted to search engines. If I search Hifi Forums, AOS appears on the first page with a Site Description that reads: "Hi-fi forum for discussing any aspect of hi-fi; vinyl, turntables, amplifiers, cd players, DACs, loudspeakers, cables, supports and more." If I search hifi subjectivist the results only return the site url, no Site Description to tell anyone what the site is about.

Google uses both of the above to match search terms to results. That is why AOS are on the front page and we are 'nowhere'.

These would be the first 2 things to address. The results would start showing within 3-4 weeks.

I'll write later about other actions that can be taken fairly easily. I suggest we start a dedicated thread...

Could well be...but my advice would be to concentrate first on getting the forum more visible.

Facebook is good for keeping people interested after they have found you (though, FB is arguably more valuable alongside a commercial site that does not have facility for live interaction, as opposed to a forum where that facility already exists).

Get people to the forum first, then work out whether a FB page would add value.

Ywanker has posted acusing me of trying to put people off going to the Waswam 10th anniversary show. Can't reply now that I'm banned. I had several posts removed on the thread prior to my red card and I think this might of contributed. It shows the forums are in league. All I did was point out that admission to the Bristol show costs less and it is better.

I have never been to either show but am tempted to go to the Bristol one as it is not far away.

If you haven't been to either show, how could you offer a reasoned and faithful opinion that the Bristol show is better?
