I don't understand completely your question. Do you mean search engine?

Here are some good articles about increasing forum traffic and building a community:

I could not get your site to load, but I only waited about 10 seconds for it.

Firstly your forums are a bit slow. I see you use GoDaddy for hosting - that's probably why (they aren't a very good host).

Secondly, you need better content. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but much of it seems stolen from other sites?

E.g.

is lifted from:

Or

http://technicalmyths.com/index.php?topic=61.0

is lifted from post 69 of:

I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just trying to help :) However simply taking content from other sites isn't really the best way to build a community.

Plus Google will very easily know that some of your content is lifted from other websites and possibly penalise you for it. They certainly won't rank you high for copied content :)

Thank you for your suggestions.

This is very easy to say that the topics are being copied and pasted. But as a professional i would say that i had been crossed with the same problem which had got resolved for my users where i work for.

I have build a website where there is a proper and right solutions rather then searching through google all day.

That is the reason i had build a website which helps technicians to resolve immediately.

There will be hundreds of solutions for one questions. But the right solution is very difficult to get.  i Culd have posted thousands of posts like this, but i have posted the one which really worked.

Thank you..

Some fair points. :) The problem is that Google and the other search engines may not see it like that and may simply think: "Okay, 60% of this site's contents is available on other, more reputable websites" - and this would be a red flag to them. Try checking out articles such as http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2049894/Google-Panda-Update-Tip-Remove-Low-Quality-Content for more information about this.

Perhaps try collecting multiple solutions and also putting it into your own words where possible? That way each post will have more unique content.
