This is my little pet project. Its more of a hobby for myself more than anything else.
I created it to practice running a website and to learn some SEO. I've added the phpbb-seo premod, as well as a few other mods, inlcuding the arcade and a portal.
I've pretty much kept all the default theme as well, as I had issues when I installed other ones, ie the other mods werent compatible, and most importantly, nobody used them!!
As I set it up without a niche, the issue facing me is to create a niche! At the moment, the site is just a general, anything goes type of forum. As a result, I've found it very hard to research keywords since there's no niche! Words like "chat", and "Discussion" dont work so I find myself relying on linking to particular topics and using the anchor text related to that one topic! so now I have a lot of low ranking keywords and little or no high relevance keywords!
Should I try move towards some niche, or is there any way to apply good SEO techniques to a "general" site?
