Bulletin Board

Advanced Script Add On ($799 Set Up, $0 Additional Monthly)

Also Known As: Forum, Message Board

Similar to a blog, a bulletin board is a computerized meeting and announcement system that allows many people to carry on discussions, upload and download files, and make announcements without the people being connected to the computer at the same time. While a blog is the journal of one person with comments from others, a Bulletin Board is set up to allow many users to start conversations (threads) as well as respond to them. Many networking groups and business' which cater to computer savvy consumers use Bulletin Boards to allow frequently asked questions and other conversations to be viewed by guests and members alike

Bulletin Board Overview

Some of the benefits of having a Bulletin Board on your website include:

  • Conversations archived for future reference
    Many times our clients use a bulletin board to keep common questions from being asked many times over. Also allowing guests to post questions and announcements generates questions and concerns that the owner of the website might not think of.
  • Constantly Updated Content
    Content which is updated often is far more beneficial than a website which stays static all the time. From increased return visitors to better search engine placement, fresh content is key to a successful website and a blog fits that bill to a "t"
  • Increased "stickyness"
    Stickyness is the holy grail of web traffic. If a website is "sticky" it holds the attention of its visitors which means they are more likely to absorb the information which you are trying to get across to them. Blogs are very sticky because the content is dated and search-able as well as comment-able in addition to several other features which help.
  • Better Search Engine Placement
    Search engines put a premium on web pages which are both rich in text and updated regularly. With the addition of a blog, search engines will usually rank your website higher than your competitors.
