I have a website which runs a forum a competitors site has the same forum as well.
The competitor get 5 posts a day I get 5 posts a month.
I have more traffic than he does, (although lately he is gaining much more)
I think that all the posts on his forum are genuine and he has others that are "real members" and post regular replies to questions by new members.
I have tried almost everything.
My forum is not yet displayed on the home page, this is the only difference. There is a link to it on the home page.
There also seems to be a registration problem on my phpbb forum. I have had some people complain, but I have tried registering from 6 different PCs and I had no problems at all .... (apart from when Google web accelerator was on)
There are about 1200 posts on my forum, he has about 9,000.
