    Hi everyone

    I just started up a forum called Pets Index. It is a forum to connect pet owners in Australia. I found most pet related forums are specific to a certain breed, to dog or cat type. I thought why don’t have one forum for all since there may be other pet owners who own more than one type of pet.

    Frankly speaking, everyone one tells me it is hard to build up the traffic for forums. Some suggest to buy posts which I think this is unethical. Currently I am posting as much information on the forum to build the content. Flying Solo forum is doing so well and we hope to be as successful as you.

    Cheers
    Vee

    I hope your new forum turns out to be a great success, and that you love every minute of it.

    Thanks for joining in, and for introducing yourself to us.

    Hi Vee, I am new here as well. Just wanted to say that I think you should stick to you guns. Don’t buy posts just to build quick wins. Stay ethical and you will always know that the success you have will be earned though hard work and effort. Besides, traffic will flow to your site through the quality of the content on there, not the quantity!

    Hi Vee,

    Great idea. You can probably get some new members from here – like me for example, I’m a huge animal lover and run a pet care company – just put your website in your signature.

    When you have the chance, come and drop by at our forum. One quick question? How to put my website in my signature? I have done it under “About Me”. Somehow my signature did not show up

    Edit: Now it does!

    Thanks Andy. I decided to stay true to my heart and be hardworking. I know it is hard hard but hope my effort pays off. I know there are several forums die down after couple of months with no traffic. Hope I am not part of the statistic. :)

    Yes, Why not? We welcome reptiles, rabbits, hamsters etc as long they are pets. We should create a poultry section. :)

    Hi Vee,

    Great idea! I checked out your forum, will be passing it on to my housemates who own a dog and a cat, and love to read and share anything/everything pet related.

    As with anything it takes time to get discovered. Once people start sharing it will grow.

    Good luck with building your forum.

    Cheers,
    Elizabeth.
