How did you find the forum?

Postby Mark » January 29th, 2012, 6:34 pm

Dear All

In order to further promote the forum I thought it might be useful to know where/how some of our members found us in the first place? Was it via a link from another site, a search in Google or another search engine, a suggestion from a friend etc. etc?

Thanks, Laurent! :) Word of mouth is always the best way I find.

Hope so, the more the merrier :) When we launched our sister-forum back in 2007 it took around a year to get up to speed so we are still in the early days here but when they find us they will come and join in.

Yes Pete over on the BMF agreed for us to mention the forum so Banker dropped in a quick post :)

I think several members have found their way from there to here.

You invited the Friends of the British Cemetery to join the forum, Mark, and I trust I'm not the only member to have done so.

Yes a number of members joined after being contacted myself who in turn invited some more. Word of mouth is one of the best methods I think although we are slowly becoming more visible on the Internet in search engines etc.
