No to forum. photos and videos

Well, i had a reply to my request for help adding site forum, photo albums and videos section, and it was not helpful. Basically it was outside there area of expertise.

I need to start building links soon as well as requesting more dog breed photos, so it would have been nice if I could have worked some magic and had some community aspects quickly in place so that fellow webmasters of dog sites could participate in this site, sooner rather than later.

Anyway, Ill have it all in good time.

Forum, pictures and videos

Found a web site on the net today that offered a number of services by way of hiring out webmasters.

I thought Id try them out and see if they could help me out on any or all of a number of requests to improve the web site.

Firstly I want a dog photos section, separate from my current dog pictures section.
A way for site visitors to easily upload pics of there dogs with a little info to share with everyone.

Then I wanted a new videos section which would incorporate dog videos, and people could embed there favourite youtube and other video sites videos within my site.

Thirdly, Id thought Id see if it all could be combined with some kind of membership to a site forum.

My goal is to eventually make the site a community for dog lovers. Although it is still relatively early days and I'm not to worried about introducing it all too soon. Although it would be nice to have it all in place for when the site starts getting alot more traffic.

March Web Site Traffic Increase

March was another growing month for traffic to the web site, with unique visitors increasing 50% on February's total.

The site still appears not to have aged enough for the Google search engine so doesn't yet have any particularly good rankings for primary keyword terms.

Mainly during the month of March a number of dog pictures pages were added or updated. I've hired help for that time consuming task and hopefully the addition of new pictures and pages will keep growing at an ever increasing rate. So far its been a bit of slow process.

April is set to be the best month yet!
