Warrior Forum and Internet Marketing Acronyms Guide

13 replies
I was inspired to compile this list of common acronyms found here on the warrior forum. I know for new users, all the lingo used here can get overwhelming. I remember back when I worked as an intern at a national lab in college was lost in the sea of acronyms they used. They couldn't complete a sentence without an acronym in it.

    These are the abbreviation that i have found for a long time. You have shared a good information. In SEO, there are many difficult words related to SEO. We can not understand about them.

    OP can also refer to "original poster", it depends on the context.

    You don't see MDF a lot, but it does come up. It stands for Main Discussion Forum.

    All the best,

    Thought I would update this thread with some of the common Instagram Hashtags. I know some of them but I am far from an expert at Instagram. Your input would be welcome indeed

    #TBT - is short for "Throwback Thursday

    #OOTD - means "Outfit of the Day

    #Regram - a reshare

    #WCW - "Woman Crush Wednesday" encourages Instagram users to share photos of the women they admire the most.

    #MCM - "Man Crush Monday" is just the opposite. Mondays are when you share photos of your favorite guys.

    #POTD - an acronym for Photo of the Day

    #Igers - means Instagrammers

    #GF - means "Gang Family" or "Global Family" -- a community that supports talented photographers around the world. I would have thought it meant Girlfriend ?

    #Fitspo - Fitspo photos usually show how to live a healthy, active lifestyle.

    #F4F - means "Follow for Follow" -- somebody will follow you if you follow them back.

    #L4L - Similar to F4F, L4L means somebody will Like your photo if you Like theirs.

    #S4S - A "Shoutout for Shoutout" is when you ask people to follow somebody in exchange for someone asking their fans to follow you.

    DM - an abbreviation for direct message.

    #TransformationTuesday - The fitness industry uses this popular hashtag to motivate people on Tuesdays.

    #FBF - Similar to Throwback Thursday, #FBF (Flashback Friday) is when people share old photos on Fridays.

    #SMH - Short for "shaking my head", this hashtag is used many ways.

    #FF - What began as Follow Friday, #FF is now used to tag any Instagram photos on Friday.

    #YOLO - You only live once!

    #NoFilter - This hashtag is reserved for photos produced without Instagram filters.

    #Petstagram - Use this hashtag when you post a photo of your pet.

    #Instapug - Lots of pugs fans!

    #Instapup - Puppy of course

    #GOTD - (Gram of the Day)

    I am sure I missed quite a few. I am learning to use Instagram. I find it crucial in product marketing nowadays.
