Welcome to Runboard.



Hello..
I am Erika, from Runboard Staff,
I am calling in to offer you some tips and a few helpful hints.
They also might help you attract members.

If you would like to know when anyone posts to this board you can sign up for the RSS feed. The RSS feed button is on the top right of your first page.

There is the Runboard SUPPORT board, (]LINK HERE, just click and go), for any questions you may have. The staff and others at Support are fantastic about getting back to each person's question, no matter what the question may be.

"Keywords and Description" and adding your site to the "Directory Listings" page.

In your Control Panel, there is a drop down menu, choose your board and click "manage", then under the Administrator Options you will notice an "Edit Keywords/descriptions" button. Click that. It opens up two boxes.

1. Keywords: enter words in here that will be found on your board, from discussion topics.
These Keywords are what people will find when they type in a search, thus leading them to your site. But, you should try to limit the keywords to no more than 25. Less is better, because the more words you use, the less weight each word will carry with search engines.

2. Description: This should be a wonderfully written description of your site, what you want to achieve, what your vision is for your site, just something to draw in new members. But keep it short and sweet. Trying to cram too many words into your description, it might actually hurt your rankings rather than help.

Another good hint, is to add your site to the RUNBOARD DIRECTORY LISTINGS, (]LINK HERE), scroll down the page until you see: List Your Board In Up To 3 Categories, you may add your site and a nice description of what your vision is, what you think makes your site a fun place to be, in 3 different categories, as the title says.
There are several great places for information on tips and tricks of creating an interesting board, with ways to add your "own" style...

1. ]Runboard Extra LINK

2. ]Runboard Support Skins LINK

3. ]Skinning a Runboard...charts etc.

4. ][sign in to see URL] (this site is done by Lesigner Girl, one of the global admins here who is also Head of Runboard Staff)

5. ]Design Elements

6. ]Runboard Design

7. ]The Runboard CHAT [sign in to see URL] place for new board owners to start!

8. ]How To Promote Your Forum Link

9. ] knowledge base wiki will answer many things also for you.

So, there are a few helpful hints. But never be hesitant about asking questions.
And please feel free to delete this topic if you find that you don't need any of the information.

Also are also some Runboard videos which you can watch which can also help you around.

Here is one of them.




Again, welcome to Runboard!

Hello Erika,

Please pardon the apparent lack of enthusiasm.

Our Admin. has been distracted by higher priorities.

Thanks for the welcome.
