Need some advice on which route to go for my forum Bizdustry.com

I would like to push this forum into a specific niche like eCommerce online business.

I try to keep the threads kind of close to each other so I don’t end up having so many empty threads showing.

What threads should I add or change
Is there any threads I should remove?

Update 2
Question should this be compelete private community? Sign in is required to join and you cant be tracked on Google?

Why would you want to remove any threads when the forum is still trying to grow?

Congratulations bro. This is a good forum. I had such an idea back in 2017...but well...life happened :)

My 2 cents:

FOR
  • Forum looks neat, professional, and good for your target market.
  • Easy to navigate through.
  • The live Bitcoin and stock market thing is a killer (you will show me how to add that :) )
  • You seem to be passionate about the niche, that is a plus.
  • Very nice articles under the Tutorials blog section. Quality, easy to read, and very informative.
AGAINST & My Recommendations.
  • The domain name "bizdustry" requires a little bit more branding/marketing, to make it slide easily from the tongue. It is a new/unique combination. Doesn't sound forumish, but its ok, with little branding efforts.
  • You mentioned you are targeting a certain niche. Are you doing keyword research?
  • Your discussions are spread over more than 5 niches.
  • Add some photos to the articles they look dull.
  • When I click on the blog link, I want to see articles/blog posts, not threads.
  • Nice articles are hidden 2 levels deep - under tutorial. Use the free Featured Thread slider addon to bring the article on the homepage. Like FP does here.
  • I will refer you to your article: https://bizdustry.com/index.php?threads/articles-both-long-and-short.443/ - Write longer attractive articles, do thorough keyword research for your target audience.
  • This niche requires professional content, so as to attract professionals who have valid input.
  • DONT make it private. At least not now.
Overall, I love the board. I will borrow a lot from the board for my business board. Which has been dead for a while now :)

Thank you so much for the feedback, I actually had xenporta disables for a second but it’s back now for the blog.
I’ll take what you said and improve and improve! Shoot me a pm if you had any questions or need help with anything.
