How Did You Find CruisersForum.com?

How did you find the CruisersForum? It might be valuable to know how our membership came to find us - either to do “more of that”, or to diversify our “searchability”.

I tried several “Google” web-searches* this morning:

* ie:
Yacht Maintainance - ranked #1
Yacht Maintenance - not in the first 45 returns
Yacht Maintainance, Boat Building, Tips & Tricks - ranked #2
Cruising sailors - ranked #4
“Cruising sailors” - ranked #3
“Sailing Forum” - ranked #7
Sailing Forum - ranked #9
cruising + sailboat - not in the first 45 returns
sailboat cruising - not in the first 45
cruising information - not in the first 45
Sailing with transmission in N or R - not in the first 45

Note the yacht maintenance vs maintainance spelling had very different results. Spellmign is all- important in web-searching!

Thanks for doing that Gord! I will add some profile fileds to the registration so that we can have new members tell us how they found us and us that to optimize our marketing... I also have a lot of ads running right now on Google (pretty much using the money we make on ads to post our own ads).

When I was considering buying my trimaran, I was searching for info on cruising on trimarans, piver trimarans etc. That is what brought me to the site.

I found this forum because it was recommended by good old boat in one of their issues.
By the by-we just closed the deal on our ranch 2 hours ago so will be looking for a boat and lots of advice.We are pretty excited!

I searched specifically for either cruising forum or sailing forum. I don't remember which exactly, but either way it's in the top 10 on google (2nd for cruising, 7th for sailing at the time of this post).

I found it interesting that a search for cruising message board rather than cruising forum mostly found cruise line related links, rather than small boat sailing links.

I believe it was you Gord, when I was over at Sailnet and things were unsettled and we were wondering where to go I believe you made the suggestion, and it was a GOOD ONE! Never been happier and never been back to the old board. Thanks!

Bob Stumblebum Norson here... I've heard it called 'screen sucking' when you diddle when you are already done with the duties. "I wonder if there is such a thing as a 'cruisers forum?'" Hit google and there it was. Once I found this one I wandered around to see if there were others and there are but... no way! I like it that you don't have to register to brouse. I have put a button on my home page to link to this site by way of a page explaining it. I plan to introduce the site in the next paper edition. It might be interesting.

Cheers

Bob

Talking A guy recommended this site

I was directed to this site by a guy I “met” on catalinaowners.com As I recall, his name was Gord May, nice enough fellow, seemed knowledgeable with a fun sense of humor. I even invited him over for a beer at my boat that is (still) at TBYC on Mission Island, beside the mast racks.

Later, eh!
