    2 Wheel Tuner magazine did a small piece on my forum. The cool thing is that I wasn't even aware of it until a member posted a thread. Pretty darn cool. Now I gotta go and get a copy and frame it! :big grin:

    Not a clue. We fluctuate throughout the year as far as traffic goes. So I'm not sure if it's because of the season or because of the free advertising.

    I make enought just to cover web hosting (barely) and a few free stuff to give out to the members. It's such a small competitive market so it's hard for the forum to grow much bigger, southern California sportbike. There are like 10 other forums in so cal competing for the same members.

    Save some money and offer to buy out the smaller ones and redirect traffic to your forum. :o

    the second you try to buy a website sellers think $$$$
    What you could do is partner with the others and combine to a big forum.

    The only problem with that is my site ranks very high with Google, more so than any other sites locally. If we combine, basically I'm advertising other sites which can have an adverse effect on memberships on my own site.

    ROFLCORE, what's your screen name on SBN? :big grin:
