I've made it my signature at Smiley. The PSF folks know where to find me----three of them are here already.

Where are we on the list if someone is Googling BB Message boards?

If you google "beach boys forum" (in inverted commas) you get our Tapatalk "farewell" page with the link to our new address. The one other front-page hit is the Freeforums support page, which gets you to the same place in a more roundabout way. So we're still visible----but only just.

Plugging this board on Smiley is a good move. I'll will plug elsewhere as I do.... Time will tell. Smile

I wonder if there`s any way we can switch it so it doesn`t go to the Crapatalk page but comes directly here.

There isn't. Bob took it to the limit with his "farewell" page.  The whole Freeforums group has been taken over by Tapatalk so you'd find yourself having to deal with them whichever way you turned. I think we just have to count our blessings that we survived at all! Maybe the more often Google's search engine visits us here, the more visible we will become. I hope so.

When I Googled 'Beach Boys Message Boards' we aren`t even on the first page. Or 2. Or 3. Or 4. Or 5. etc.  Mad

My best brainstorms happen while in the shower:

'The Beach Boys Experience'
'The Beach Boys Emporium'

Still do it in the upper/lower case SMiLe style.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Looks like all the votes are in. Thank you so much, I`m very touched you like a lot of my suggestions.  Sending out the Bob signal to change it to:

THe BeAcH BoYs ExPeRieNCe

(How does that look with the lower/upper case?)

Straightforward for comparison:

The Beach Boys Experience

It looks great! Not unsurprisingly there's at least one BB tribute band by
that name so hopefully people looking for them will find us instead.

Before today, the greatest number of simultaneous visits was seven. Today it was nine----since the change of name, in other words.

Has anyone noticed that the words Beach Boys in the forum subtitle provide a hyperlink (to eBay) when you're not logged on?

Hate to say this but I think it's just the four of us now (five, if you include Our Saviour's sporadic appearances). That's DGQ, Ashley, CCW and Mr. K. Still, quality before quantity, eh?

We could always ask 'da vipper' to join.
