Our site has finally started to turn around since I switched the domain name. Long story short I switched the domain name from the short version to the spelled out version for keywords. I did everything by the book and did the proper 301's but still lost all the indexed pages and the google page rank. While we still don't have page rank the indexes are starting to mount up again and traffic is on the rise finally. We are averaging about 5 - 10 new members a day which may not be a lot to some of you we are at least back to where we were before the domain change. I was donated for items for a contest, granted the monetary value is about $30 each but for our niche and visitors the prizes would be special to them. I am undecided if I would be better off doing a contest for article submissions or for the top four members for active member referrals? I am also open to ideas for other contests that would help grow the community.
