The way to ensure more traffic is to write more posts featuring the words "refugees" and "rape."
Throw in a couple of celebrity trash/gossip stories and we are set to soar.

Thank you for your efforts guys :). If you want an idea of what people are searching for the most to get to this website, hereunder are the most popular keywords on Google.

We can see the patterns and trends that people have said before in this thread. People get here most by looking for cutting-edge treatments, and since they are cutting edge, not many sources have mentioned them yet, then searching about celebrities and whether they're dealing with hair loss and finally about more conventional treatments, which are further down because there are already tons of older and more popular websites talking about them. But still, something like "adding dutasteride to finasteride" or "minoxidil ageing myth" (thanks for that one @Afro_Vacancy ) sometimes makes the cut.

Awesome.

But did anyone else get a load of notifications for old posts of theirs that were quoted? It was really weird I came in to 11 "someone quoted you" notifications and they were all from like 2 months ago.

Ah yeah, that was me sorry, the addition of the extension to automatically embed media content came with a price. All the YouTube videos ever posted were not playable unless I removed the BBCode from each post individually.

So I did that, and it triggered those notifications for some reason :p.

I changed the style of the forum (which was still the default one :p) to something that looks a bit more professional.

I also added a recent topic tab on the home page, you can customize it in your user control pannel if you want.

Yeah notice how much darker the coverage is :p.

I started posting on social networks. A hair loss website is so hard to market since you can forget about hair loss sufferers ever liking, sharing or commenting, but hell, it's worth a try, even if I only reach a handful of people. Here's a good ocassion to test the various platforms that this site can now embed:

The new Forum look is much better than the previous one.

In fact, when I tried to recruit someone from memberlosstalk, they were
telling me they didn't like the original one.

It looks so much better. Also like the new theme, much cooler than the boring blue
theme that was here before.

This is a substantial improvement to the look of the forum.

In particular, the two photos of Prince William at the top are now more coherent. You changed something, is it that they're the same size?

They were asymmetrical before.
