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...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent...

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!! ...

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent,...

A certain member has been annoying me recently and I'd like to stop seeing their posts. How do I block them? All I can see on their profile is the flagging option.
