Impressive Research Tool! a gift for my 200th Post!

Hi y'all

Forums Report

Forums are a great way to learn the pulse of a lot of people. Through forums we learn what people need. What the current trends are whether in technology or any other areas of life.

Forums are varied from business, psychology to entertainment. In fact there are about 35K forums all over the internet.


Imagine to be able to tap into world wide consciousness. Being in a forum allows you to do this. In an instant you can know what people from different parts of the world need.

This is power when properly utilized. Through forums we can know the truth of events around the world not through the filtered lens of the news media but from real people from those places.


This can benefit us if we can capitalize on this. We all know that building profitable internet ventures require knowing what people want. This is called RESULTS DETERMINATION and in my opinion the forums are the best tool for this.

Actual Tool

As I mentioned earlier there are about 35 thousand forums all over the internet. To log in one by one to these forums will not do. By that process it will be a waste of time.

luckily earlier this morning while searching for ways to increase traffic I bumped into BOARDTRACKER.COM that's when I found out that there are about 35k forums in the internet. The good thing about the tool is that
we can monitor forum activities in a central location. We can even set parameters on what keywords we want to monitor out of the 35k +/- forums. This gives us a real time information on world wide consciousness.

There are other tools like this for sure and my advice is that if you know one use it. Having a central command center from which to spy on all the forums is an excellent thing. Remember information is power!

My bumping into this site feels like finding gold. Since this is my 200th post I thought maybe its good to share this. Also I just had my bday a day consider this my bday treat to all of you.

    Thanks Rapid,

    I was thinking about how many other forums were out there and how to tap into them, only the other day. You also brought up many points that I hadn't thought about nor would ever think about, if not for your post.

    Thanks again and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

      2. keyword inurl:board
      3. keyword inurl: phpbb
      4. keyword inurl:viewtopic


      Forum search sites:

    I don't know why, but doesn't work for me.
    In the home page I made the search for ipad:

    "Want to know what people are talking about?" [ipad] (Search)
    And the answer was: "No results match your search parameters"

    Then I made several search with others keyphrases/subjects and no results, all of them without filters at all.

    ¿I have missing something in the operation of
    ¿Can somenone give me a hint about that?

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
