What do you think about members who just lurk around your forum without actually posting?
Provide or get advice on everything SEO, ask questions, gain confirmation or just become apart of a friendly, like minded community who love SEO and Online Marketing.
I agree. I also frequently lurk on many forums and will register and being to post if the community seems lively/welcoming of new members. However, this is very hard for newer forums because many of them do not have the luxury of having a community built, which in turn prevents them from building up a larger community. It's quite a strange cycle.I don't mind lurkers because I lurk myself. Most people lurk without ever participating. The 80/20 rule applies. 20% of the membership accounts for 80% of the content. It hard on a new forum though.
