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 see the "magnifying glass" icon to the right searches the entire site. But, how do we go about searching the discussion forums? When I returned to HubPages a few months ago I was having a bit of a difficulty updating myself because, I could not search for information in the forums. A...

Perhaps to strike a balance between what one portion of HP users want and the rest of us...maybe we could start up a "Newcomer Thread - Q&A" that has equal staying power to some of our popular word games. There won't be an official decision to parse up exactly which content goes...

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 mainly, it seems like an awful lot of the output and discussions in those forums...

Why are questions disappearing?Recently this has been happening a lot. I get a notification that someone I am following has asked a new question so I click on it only to find that I get a message telling me the question has been removed. Why? Is there some new HubPages process...

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.

I'm seeing ALL the following messages at the bottom of each forum I open, even if the thread was only started today:The post you are replying to is over two months old. Please DO NOT reply UNLESS you have truly new information to add to this conversation. Consider creating a new forum discussion...
