The higher the rankings, the more people click on cardschat and the bigger and better the community becomes.
So how can you help create backlinks? If you have a blog, or website, maybe include a sitewide link for cardschat.com. You could also become a member of other forums and put a link for cardschat.com in your signature. Even if we all put a link in our sigs here, we could help, as many of these threads have decent pageranks and are indexed by google.
It's all about pagerank in the major search engines. With every link we can give cardschat.com, even if it is on the site itself, we slowly help it rise in the search engine rankings. You have over 1,000 posts, that's over 1,000 backlinks. And you know those threads that you might start with like 15 pages and thousands of views, those pages will become indexed in google and will have pagerank themselves. (sidenote - backlinks originating from pages with higher pagerank mean more in the search engines eyes). I just thought I could show my support.
