Yesterday I made a modification to the forums on Audiocourses.
The modification is a superb tool and took no more than, what 30 mins, from start to finish. The end result is a unique rss feed for each individual forum thread on the board!
Naturally this is the way forward, not least because it means a user can subscribe to whatever niche they desire rather than the whole board. So for example if you were particularly interested in pre-amps, you’d subscribe to just that RSS feed about pre-amps etc.
The feed is also shown by way of an image on each page, which is a bonus as the spiders should be getting to work right now crawing like crazy through that lot. In fact today I have noticed a significant spike in traffic, which may be conincidental, but I think not. I’ll check the web logs over the next few days to confirm.
