All right, I'm about to revise the homepage (it needs it). The idea was tossed around about getting rid of it completely, and forwarding everything to the forums, however that idea would destroy our search engine placement, so instead I'm going to try to redesign it and direct more traffic to key places in the forum.
Anyway, rather than just having links and everywhere, I want to give search engines something to "hit". We need some kind of text content on the homepage that's readable by spiders and search engine crawlers. I'm trying to write a nice descriptive paragraph about UB, but I'm not doing very well at it. Anyone want to help?
United Bimmer is a community of car enthusiasts, brought together by sharing a similar passion of BMWs. We're a very member-oriented website where every person has a say. Our community, unlike many others out there, is not focused on profit or sponsors. Our goal is to build a helpful, friendly source of knowledge where enthusiasts can interact and discuss anything and everything. We've dedicated a vast effort to building the technologies this site uses as a medium, building out sections such as our comprehensive DIY Knowledge Base, our original Rate-My-Car System, our high-quality Wallpaper Gallery, and our fully integrated forum File Manager, for members to easily be able to upload pictures and movies. Members who have been around for a while on the forums, even get access to a completely free email account with a unitedbimmer.com domain.
If possible, use lots of keywords like forums, forum, BMW, community, bimmer, etc.
I'm going to be rewording, revising, and tweaking this later this evening, but I thought it couldn't hurt to throw it up here and get any input you guys have on it.
