Thanks to forums the people can communicate among themselves, look for adherents, exchange experience and meet congenial people. Of course, social networks took away a considerable part of popularity from forums, but still forums maintain relevance. However creation and advance of the forum can not always be carried out.
The problem is that it is very difficult to carry out advance of a forum in search engines. It is connected with technical features of these types of Internet resources and also other nuances. Therefore owners of forums are very strongly limited in the choice of instruments of development of the resources.
What difficulties of advance of a forum
First of all it is necessary to fill that for successful search advance it is important to fill a resource with qualitative content constantly. And at search engines the idea of quality of content which, it seems, is logical is had, but is not always suitable for different types of resources including for forums.
Unique images and informative publications are considered as qualitative content. Here also the main problem contains, forums usually consist of short messages, and many messages less informative. But such messages transfer emotions of people, but it does not interest search robots at all.
Some webmasters who try to advance the forum just try to publish the whole articles as messages. In formats of a traditional forum it looks a little strange, but thus it is possible to solve partially the main problem - lack of good texts. For inhabitants of a forum such messages not always are interesting or useful, people got used to a lively discussion, and articles are depersonalized. For search engine optimization such solution too not really helps with the solution of the main problem, normal messages nevertheless win against such informative publications lump, and it is all the same spoils quality and usefulness of all content in the opinion of search engines.
The only hope for development of a forum in search engines are behavioural factors. That searchers highly ranged a forum it is necessary to do everything possible that people took active part in development of a forum, constantly communicated, regularly checked update of information and so on. That is it is necessary to stake on real traffic.
There is also one more way. It is just banal popularity of a resource among users. That is it is necessary that people liked a forum that they, without the aid of search engines advertized a resource, brought the acquaintances here and regularly visited him. To make it very difficult, besides on it a lot of time will be required. And therefore today those forums which were made five, and even all ten years ago are popular. They already deserved popularity and proved the authority time. And any algorithm of searchers cannot ignore this fact. As for creation of new forums, it must be kept in mind that for gaining popularity it is necessary to spend many resources and to wait a lot of time to understand whether it will turn out to win popularity or is not present. It is much simpler to create and untwist the blog, but if the idea for a forum is very good, then it is possible to try to risk.
