    somethingawfull forums? Anyone go there?
    Hey everyone,

    I just was looking at the analytics for our site and saw a hit of 900+ people within a a time span of a day (9/24/06) and they all came from the somethingawfull forum. I want to search on there to see if someone posted a link to us or talked about us in a post, but I am not registered on there. Are any of you registered on there and can search for the post that sent a titlewave of hits to our site? I've Personally never hear of that forum before and I'm not even sure what exactly the topic is...lol If anyone can help I would definately be very happy!!!

    Thanks!

    Steve

    why not just register unless it cost you a lot of $$ to register or is an exclusive forum...

    SA is a very popular forum. I don't have an account, but I know it gets a ton of traffic.

    I would just sign-up if it was free, I think I read it's like $9.99 or 19.99 I can't recall... I might sign-up if no one on here has access.... Anyone?

    I think there are only a handful of forums out of the 1,000,001 forums out there that charge $$. Guess you ran out of luck..

    gee thanks eric...lol I am registered/live on about 20 different forums and I've never even seen one that makes you pay to join.... I thought that's why forums used affiliate programs (to make money from banners!)...lol

    most forums use adwords or similiar programs such as ad words / CPC.
    for some of the car forums, i know you can pay $$ to get upgraded to certain segments which I think ain't worth it
