Re: My forum is being blocked by Ironport web security

You'd best ask them. Try sending an email and see why it is blocked.

If they don't come up with any decent reason, you will have to inform the user that it's out of your control.

It sounds sort of like Websense, actually. Ahh, those good memories...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

No, I get a site popular enough so that naturally people go to it then, for example, Jimmy says "cool, I'm going to do a funny status about a dinosaur" then his parent teacher see's the site and adds it to the schools website resources division, etc. Kind of like that. When I back link my...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

Here's an example. Years ago I registered a domain called iimageshack.us. An obvious miss spell to grab traffic. I sold that domain for $3,000 because it was getting 10K per month straight off the beginning. No, WE trick people into visiting anything. Example: Walmart: "customer is always righ...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

I'm sorry. Let me rephrase. I'm ot talking about advertising/marketing with money. I'm talking about SEO optimizing, link building, and advertising a site using free methods such as social bookmarking, etc. So, enlighten me on this link building scheme. Do you force users to link to your website? I...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

It's about creating fear. People should be fearful that their website will not be successful unless it is optimised for search engines. Is that not why you are here? Its not really an emotional situation. Its just business. No, I'm not here to pass fear. I was asked to come around this topic by an ...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

Well, people are always asking how to get more traffic. I give an answer and they don't like it. What the heck are you talking about scam. Its called marketing and everyone does it. Police market to not break the law, the store markets their dog food, your mother markets that you shouldn't have sex...

Re: Which mod is the most reliable for SEO ?

Ugh, your killing me. CONTENT is part of SEO. -keyword rich content -using google trends to choose what article to write about. etc. Content can be a part of a lot of things, not just optimising for search engines. I find it quite ridiculous that the soul purpose of a website, or at least a large f...

Re: [Discuss] Google & phpBB Summer of Code Participants Ann

PostgreSQL/Sphinx indexing, better attachments, auth plugins? And not to mention the existing RFCs and post revisions? Sounds pretty exciting to me.

Good luck to all involved. :cool:

Re: I'm getting way too many spambots

Long story short, if you create a good unique q&a, it is close to unbeatable. Just dont use "Are you human" or "2+2=?". From what i read the bots actually googles the question to see if it can find an easy answer. So dont use something too simple. Agreed on some points. I im...

Re: phpBB and the EU cookie law - the cookie opt-in regulati

I was under the impression that the law only concerned tracking cookies and the like not session cookies? Hmm, still not 100% sure about that. I spent a bit of time reading some of ICO's guide for webmasters and although it does define session and persistent/tracking cookies, I don't believe it sta...

Re: [Discuss] Introducing Forumatic - Managed phpBB Hosting

Slightly coincidental that Forumatic only just got brought up in that other topic before the announcement?

Anyway, not the slightest bit interested in your business ventures. Why isn't phpBB promoting other forum hosting platforms like Forumotion?

That's Marcus's site. Steve's version is at this post: Manage_Bots Script. Not sure the relationship between Steve's and Marcus's scripts, although Marcus's site has a later date. I'm sure Steve will confirm which version to use though.
