I collect, via a Wix.com Web Stat application, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet. I may use this software tool to measure and collect session information, page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. It also indicates which countries website readers reside in. This gives me aggregated statistical data of a non-personal nature to indicate popularity or otherwise of certain posts or to indicate effectiveness of book-marketing copy and access to on line sales outlets on the website.
Should you object to my seeing your IP address then of course, VPN software is an option.
Update your content regularly so there’s always something new. Share anything - stories, ideas, pictures & more. It’s a great way to hook your forum members and keep them coming back.
One easy way to freshen up your content is by contributing new posts and comments to one of your existing discussions. This will keep the conversation going for longer and your existing members engaged in discussions which they’re already passionate about. Another way to add fresh content is to add additional discussion categories to your forum through time so there’s always something new for your community members to discuss.
