We have an accountancy/finance based forum attached to our website. We require improvements to that forum, as it is currently not being indexed correctly by Google and others etc.
We need to find a programmer able to fix the solution to make our posts (more) visible on search engines.
At present the current forum software is: phpbb
We have numerous "members" on our forum at present and we do not want to lose that list, so if a change of forum software is required, we need 100% security that we will not lose the membership data, nor their login details.
We are also looking for someone to help with the marketing of our forum. Currently many of our immediate competitors, who have been in the business only 1 year less than us are "storming" ahead with their forums (which is their promary business)... whilst we have only a minute fraction of the audience appearing on our forum.
We now need to find a marketeer (on an ongoing basis) to focus on our forum to improve relevant traffic to it, to create backlinks from other related forums to our forum, and perhaps to even create posts and discuss on our own forum.
If you are suitable for either role, or can do both, we will be interested to hear from you.
At this stage, I shall not give out the name of our company, but would like to look at your portfolio of work.
We need someone with strong experience with forums.
