Help Promote

In the Canaries In A Mine thread some of you seemed to be asking how you could help around the site. I just thought of a way.

(I know I must be trying your patience by asking you to read another thread. I promise to take a break after this one)

AJ Peacock sent me an email mentioning that we are probably getting more traffic here because of a recent post over on Benchrest Central. In it someone started a thread about one of the new articles on this site and he included a link to the article. A discussion ensued over there about its topic.

Below is a screenprint of a graph showing the exact amount of traffic we get from Benchrest Central. We always get some but when that thread was posted there was a huge spike. As you can see, during the last month we got almost 1,000 visits, half of which was from the article.

Some of you belong to 5 or more other outdoor sites. Talk us up on those sites, with a link back to here, whenever it would seem natural to do so.

In your signatures on those other sites, consider placing a link. Some sites have rules against that so be sensitive. We don't want to create ill will.

Let me know by email if you see an interesting thread on another site that links back to us (like above). I'll post the resulting traffic graph to demonstrate its effectiveness.

One more idea for promotion is member referrals. If you meet someone who would fit in well with us on this site, ask them to come on over and sign up. When they register, tell them to use your screen name as the "referrer" source.

    I think we got a few members from a Special Forces forum that I am a member of and we got a few from Quantico F-class where there were a couple of amateurs just like me who were there just to hone their deer shooting skills. They were amazed that there was a whole forum dedicated just to doing what they were trying to learn how to do on their own.

    Great site

    Thanks Len, from Salem, Oreegun. I look at 6-7 shooting sites daily and this one stands out as being well above average in participation, content and webmaster oversite.
    You deserve a truckload of kudos.

    Hi Len,

    I also hang out at Nosler Reloading - ammunition, hunting, shooting, and performance reloading expertise from the source. and do refer to this sight whenever I can. The good thing about Nosler is that they promote all the shooting sports and
    sites so there is never a problem of bending/breaking the rules.

    In fact, I was able to drive, with the help of some of the members here, Noslers introduction
    of the 338 cal 250 gr AB for 2008. Thanks for a great site here at LRH.
