View Full Version : Boosting Sales with Automated Cross Product Links from Forum to Store

It would be great if any reference to a product name and/or general product keyword would be linked directly to an appropriate section within your store.

That allows us to quickly get to product information after it is discussed or recommended before we get distracted elsewhere on the forum or the Net, etc.

For instance, if someone typed creatine, it could be linked to a list of creatine products at the store. If they type the name of a specific brand, then it can link directly to the brand and/or a specific product.

Actually, I work with a company called Crawlability Inc. They create a software plugin for vB forums called "vBSEO".

This would be a great addition to these forums. It helps improve the forum pages in the search engines primarily.

However, there is really cool feature that automatically replaces a link to a thread with the threads title. It makes stuff much more user friendly. With so many reference links posted here by users, it would really be a great addition.

I'm not sure if it is acceptable to post links, but here is the website if a bodybuilding.com admin would like to review it: http://www.vbseo.com

Also: Why isn't the advanced post editting WYSIWYG box used here? That's very help for crafting more readable posts, esp. for training info & supplement logs.

A WYSIWYG box would be very cool, nice idea.
