Nice to see that we are going in good pace. I am not sure the total number of members we have. But ideally we should set some clearly defined goals such as creating chapter in the region wise or staring TAI magazine or some thing like that. Do I sound like crazy nut [;)]
Not at all[:D] Its just that magazines so soon doesn't sound good.We need to advertise as much as possible.Well we have done it all over net now(facebook,orkut,etc).I guess its time for some more good content in the forum & then the Sticker/logos on our cars.I mean we drive so much & people in curiosity would surely visit the site & the content would attract them & then we will have lots of members and then a great learning experience(sharing,gaining knowledge)and then finally a success.Phew![;)]

Recently, there was couple of articles on the print media changing to the online. The fact is that majority of the people still likes print media. However, among these people, majority expects the magazine to be available online too. Does it makes sense to think about an online magazine first and as a second step go to print media ? I am not sure. What I imagine is online pdf reader based magazine has got good place as it is not a website which has lot of links here and there. In Europe shopping malls and super market are using these magazines on a monthly bases along side with a free copy circulated around. I am not sure whether this is a good idea, but just thought of putting it across.

EDIT:

Do you guys wanna take a look at these online PDF magazines? I can share some of the links.

Hey Shynish,
To start a magazine(even if its an online version) we will need to do a lot of efforts.
Firstly, We need to make staff members who can TD latest cars on time, Attend the launches etc. because all this will not be possible by one person.

And To make good no. of staff members, We will need the forum members first!
So, I think we should concentrate more on community only, But once we get popular enough then we can surely think about the online magazines etc.

Nice Idea Synish
But only 83 as of now it doesn't seem like a good idea.
Having a magzine is like one way communication and on the forum people are readily available for comments and tips.

What changes are in the pipeline Vibhor??
Do shed some light on it.

350Z, Others:

My 2 cents: I know we are just around 80 members now and our content generated so far is not very very high. But how do we closely integrate our forum with google searches?
As an e.g., if I search for a term (say Punto performance), I do not see TAI in the search list (Correct me if I am wrong here). I feel lots of us google to find information about a particular product and if our forum is listed amongst the searches, we will have lot more folks joining in IMHO.

PS: Sorry if this is a tad difficult or this suggestion is a little overboard.

Cheers,
Vroom

Hi Vroom,
Your suggestion is very correct.
Google is the "Guru" Of Any site present online.
I'm working to improve the SEO of our forum and if needed we will install any paid hack in coming days.

Google, Yahoo & MSN Bots have started surfing on TAI, So we just need to make more & informative content on the site which will help us to get better search engine rankings.

Thanks for the suggestions by the way.

Hey guys,

I have already done few resarch on google & its ranking!!

Its simply works this way.

If you want your site to top the list, then the content should be unique & Once google retrives, it caches your site & there it goes, You will always get the site topped from there on!!

That's true. The algorithm is called the Pagerank algorithm. Simplifying this to the bare minimum, the calculation for a page's page rank is based on the number of incoming linked pages PR also including the damping factor D.
Anyways, I think this is OT.

Cheers,
Vroom
