How did you find Net Cooking Talk

Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out what works. We have tried multiple ways to get the word out to folks. I'm looking for new users who did not find us through google, one of my other forums or via another member telling you about us.
We have some signs and other stuff out there. If you found us due to a message on a coffee cup or pen or on a car window please post here and let us know where, when and on what you saw Net Cooking Talk.
Thanks!!!!!

Actually, I found NCT in a google, looking for a recipe. However, the recipe didn't come up in NCT in the search, but NCT did. IMHO, I think a search engine(?) would reach more cooking-orientated folks. Maybe using tags like recipe or food or food discussion. The only recipe/mention of NCT in a search pulled up GF. Could it be the way V-bulletin is set up re searches on the www? Sorry, I'm not familiar with how sites & searches work. Lately I've been using Bing, among others (since I now have windows 7).

Everyone here with a blog should post a link on their blog!

Excellent idea Kimchee. :thumb: :tiphat:

Another thought, Doc - how about a facebook page/account?

I set up a facebook page a year or more ago. I am not real active on it as I feel facebook takes away from us here at NCT. I hoped it would draw folks this way but I've never had anyone here say they found us via facebook.

If you find a recipe you like and want to share it on facebook if you link to here from your wall that would help get the word out more. folks would come on over to see the recipe and maybe join up and stay. I would love to see some people post that they found us via facebook.

As for the DC way .... Someone showed me that long ago, and I had forgot about it. I agree with phiddle, it could send more away than convince them to stay. :pat: They just don't get it. But they are so much bigger than us I am surprised they even acknowledge our existence with that kind of stuff.

qsis, my only complaint with the mods is that they don't post often enough. as far as the mechanics and adjudication of a site goes, yous guys rock! that's no small feat. in fact, you've conquered the tougher part of running a community with honours.

input doesn't have to be new and great ideas all the time, but pedestrian replies to common threads, and a recipe here and there would really help. the mods of a cooking/foodie site should be fairly into the daily pursuit of culinary pleasure on a regular basis, no?

Thanks for the complements, its not easy to strike the right balance in our efforts and there's a lot of stuff going on in the background you don't see such as stomping on several spammers a day, hopefully before anyone knows they are there.

We still try to post though and a quick look at the stats shows the mod team (and Doc) started 21% (3,100) of the over 15,700 threads on the forum and contributed 20% (41,400) of the over 200,000 posts.

Pretty good for only 8 folks.

Since I have never been a member of any forum before NCT, I sure am glad I found this one first. The other place may have scared me away for good. :lol:

So, now it's time to get back on topic and talk about how you found Net Cooking Talk.

Anyone here find it via the Huffington Post or maybe Calorie Counters?
