Re: Random Account Switching

Not to keep running on this thread but as a side note, FYI: during my investigation I came across this content scrapper that started hitting my SERPs right after the cache "maintenance" happened. Depending on your niche you may or may not have seen it yet. Go to the big G and search for "occurso.inf...

Re: Random Account Switching

you got lucky, it is all in the luck of the draw. I sure felt lucky ...or...or, maybe I used my years of customer support experience combined with vast reserves of IT knowledge to communicate my problem effectively with the technician on duty thereby resulting in an albeit incomplete yet somehow wo...

Re: Random Account Switching

I didn't do anything, other than call and tell them I know what happened and ask how they plan to fix it. He didn't say what he did other than they turned it off for my site and I didn't ask. Like I said, I will be switching to VPS soon anyway. I watched it happen for a week and I was just about to ...

Re: Random Account Switching

Lets deal with the elephant in the room, shared servers are the trailer parks of servers :D I am probably going to go with the VPS next time. BlueHost did me a solid on this caching issue, I like to reward those who produce solid effort when I can; I also like to punish those who don't. I have been ...

Re: Random Account Switching

and then approx a year after the buyout is when the server moves are done and the old host and all its customers get ruined.

That is unfortunate, my contract is up at the end of the year. Maybe I'm going shopping again?

Re: Random Account Switching

Hope you all get your sites running again, garfy you took niche to a whole new level. calman, BlueHost has always been good to me just consider the ...

Re: Random Account Switching

I would be interested to know how? Basically, I informed them (by phone) of the Varnish discussion going on over here, and my issues (same one here) began after the maintenance they did. He confirmed they did in fact fire up Varnish on the shared servers and I asked him how they plan to fix the pro...

Re: Random Account Switching

1 call to BlueHost and they disabled it no questions asked. Problem (Varnish) solved (fingers crossed) ;) I basically have a handful of active members so I wonder what is causing me to hit the Varnish cap, bots?

Re: How long should it take to get members?

Anyone in the fishing niche will tell you fishing forums are being killed off by social. People are out on the water and can't wait to get home so they just pull out the device and post a fish pic to their social right on the spot. The only exception is being way offshore but then some boats have ce...

Bookmarked KevC. I have tapped into some of the biggest forums and so far the admins are allowing me to do it or they are so big they just haven't noticed.

Re: How long should it take to get members?

Yes, I am glad I didn't build just a forum or I wouldn't be getting any traffic. Thanks David63 I am using some of your extensions without issues.

How long should it take to get members?

Here is "that" ant nest question again right. Are new forums dead at birth or just mine? I built what I consider a very nice product which you can see in my sig if you choose to comment. And I do realize that it is the slow season for my niche. However, I am getting what I would consider good traffi...
