For those of us who take time to gain back links and traffic using message boards, forums, and answer boards will you put more effort into your keyword selection in your posts now that Omgili is here.
If you don't know, Omgili @ Omgili dot com aka: "Oh My God I Love It" provides search engine results coming from discussion boards, mailing lists, and answer boards. I found it last night and the results on searches where very relative to what I was looking for. In fact it's my newest tool next to Google for finding what I'm looking for, especially since I prefer to get my information via discussion forums 90% of the time.
They are new, but there site is really very promising. It got me thinking. I occasionally use forums and answer boards to get a link in here and there. My posts aren't going to be found in Google most the time so how I wrote (working with keywords) wasn't as important as what I wrote. Does that make sense?
If this site becomes the next big thing that can work in tandem and not working against Google it could provide webmasters yet another tool to gain SE style traffic. "Lead em to your discussion post with keywords, then get them to your site with your signature link."
So do you think this will change the way you post in a forum?
If it takes off and it is sending lots of search engine traffic to my forum posts, yes, it will.
If it takes off it will mean more spammers on more forums. One of the things I like about hubpages is the lack of forum signatures.

LOL, Mark, you have your Religion Forum pants on in a general interest forum - these people don't all know you have been beatified by fiat.
Darn I should get out more - missed Mark's elevation - congrats Mark!

I generally avoid the non-HP-related sections of the forums (categories like books and sports). Partly it's because all the religious and political discussions distress me, partly it's because it's a time-waster.But...

I've been a member of many forums in the past, and they all had a thanks button for each post in the forum and each comment made on the post. I would LOVE to see this added to the HubPages forum!! ...

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long...

Would it be possible to introduce a word count limit on forum posts?Look at the forums and you'll find there's never a good reason for a long forum post.Spammers write a long post to advertise their DVD ripper or...

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub,...
