NEW UPDATE : Forumotion Traffic exchange!

Post by Leviosa on January 24th 2011, 9:44 am

First topic message reminder :

Dear users and members,

To improve the ranking and the audience of your forum, we inform you that we have now added a new feature entitled "Traffic exchange" which remains in Beta.

This new option will allow you to share traffic and visitors, with forums in the same category as your forum topics and have similar or close subjects to yours.
It will appear at the end of each subject in the form of a block of links related to the selected subject.

To increase the number of visitors and thus the general audience of your forum, you should turn on option traffic exchange in your admin panel>> General>> Forum promotion >> Traffic exchange.

You can of course deactivate it when you want.

See you soon for some fresh news!

Forumotion Team

What it helps is forum motion to spam their own users by encouraging more use of their own forums.

The idea behind this was good: if you activate this, then in theory at the bottom of each discussion thread there would be links to other forums that would be of interest to the users of your forum.

I had this activated for 5 seconds, took a look at a couple of the new links in my forum and deactivated it instantly. None of the new links connected to anything that's related to my forum (apart from links to other sections within my OWN forum).

I have a forum about George Clooney and the links simply were related to anything that had the word George in them . . .

Maybe i'll give this a try in a year or two once forum motion have got better search algorithms going but ot now. Unlike many of the above posters I don't have any problem with links to other forums, but I insist that they're relevant to my forum users otherwise it's just spam.


thanks for help but it dont work at my website :S

I have a problem with several related links as well, some of which are inappropriate do to just having one to two words in common.

I also wish there was an option where the exchange only happens to those who activate it as well? It wouldn't make sense if we activate it and the other site didnt, it's like a give away, a way to loose members too, like stated above.

it's nice yes, im not sure if it's helping or not, but i wish it can be filtered and optimized like that.

(dunno if this has been stated earlier, sorry if it has)

If anyone feels like pressing a Yes button today, vote for this suggestion. We want an option to turn off off-site links.

Hi, my forum is www.golfrepublic.org and I want to disable traffic exchange. However, I keep getting General Error - Could not update ptrafic data

Please help!

I would appreciate the forumotion admin remove that traffic exchange box away from my forum. it is of no use to my community. absolutely useless feature.
