[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=4][B]Perhaps it's more of a not-so-secret advantage! But that doesn't stop people from being creative...[/B][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana]
I just finished speed reading another forum, and zero-ing in on threads related to vBSEO.
One particular post jumped right out at me - and I'm confident you will find this interesting.
[B] The situation:[/B] A user was asking for vBSEO reviews. One person responded saying that they were a vBSEO customer, installed vBSEO, and saw no effect... basically summarizing it as a waste of time.
To me that's shocking. We do not get many bad reviews. So - I did what I always do... I decided to check out the site to see what was wrong.
[B] FYI[/B] - We have actually had cases where customers have only 50% completed their install process (example: forgot to import the plugin)... and let vBSEO run (or not run) like that.
As you can imagine... that's not going to help SEO-wise. It's also a part of the reason we've launched our [URL="http://www.vbseo.com/installation-service.html"]install[/URL] and [URL="http://www.vbseo.com/upgrade-service.html"]upgrade[/URL] services.
But - there are 1000s of professional forum admins, earning high monthly incomes with successful forums, who just do not touch code. They specialize in forum management and profit making, and let us geeks take on the tech parts.
So back to my story[/B] - what did I find glaringly wrong with this customer's site? Can you guess?
[/FONT] [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=4][COLOR=Blue][I] Nothing...[/I][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana]
Nothing in particular was wrong with the site. It was installed & configured correctly, had a nice template, & good forum descriptions, etc.
[SIZE=4] But I did happen to check out our license database... and discovered that this customer has [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=4][COLOR=Black][B]NOT ONE... But FIVE vBSEO Licenses[/B][/COLOR] bought throughout the course of the year:[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana]
3 before and 1 after the registration date of the forum that supposedly didn't do so well.
Then the cosmic paint brushes jolted down from high and painted a clear picture of what was happening here.
[B]The competitive advantage[/B]: It may be speculation - but I think it's fair to propose that this user was trying to scare his competitors away from using vBSEO! Method? Give cold feedback in review threads.
[/FONT] [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=4][B][COLOR=Blue] So - while he keeps building new forums and adding vBSEO - he hopes that you won't! And that's how he keeps his secret vBSEO advantage.[/COLOR][/B][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana]
But what's the real competitive advantage?
[/FONT] [FONT=Verdana][/FONT][FONT=Verdana][B][SIZE=4][SIZE=2] Be first. Be fast. Be better.[/SIZE]
SEO takes time. Don't put it off. Start ASAP.
If you're fast... and you start now:[/FONT][LIST=1][*][FONT=Verdana] You WILL have an awesome chance at getting a head start on your current and future competitors in the same niche[/FONT][*][FONT=Verdana]You WILL ensure that you avoid losing the race by letting them get the jump on you[/FONT][*][FONT=Verdana]You WILL have your search engine optimization working for you.[/FONT][/LIST][FONT=Verdana][B][COLOR=Blue][SIZE=4]Did you know that many customers have reported that their big jump in traffic occurs a few months after installing vBSEO?[/SIZE]
[B] If you start now... a couple of months could mean February 2008. That would be great New Year's surprise.[/B]
One key factor that a lot of people overlook is that vBSEO is limited to helping forums running vBulletin! But they are not your only rivals.
Remember the rest of the BILLIONS of pages on the Web? We don't make a version of vBSEO for them!
So don't forget that you'll be jockeying for position in the search engine race... against *every* other website online... not just other forums.
If you have vBSEO now - congratulations. As always, we would love to hear your stories of success.
If you don't have vBSEO yet - you should really begin gathering some info to help make your decision. We are standing by to answer any questions you may have before choosing to come on board and [URL="http://www.vbseo.com/purchase/"]get vBSEO enabled [/URL]in plenty of time for 2008.
