Scot's Simple Forum Module for Miva Merchant 5 is based on forums. A forum is a collection of threads (conversations) which are displayed line by line. If you click on the name of a thread, it takes you to the message where the responses will be.
Forums are popular among the most successful web sites because they open up communication between customers and the business in a way that makes it very easy to skip the small talk and take care of business. Support forums, fan forums, product forums, anything people will talk about in person they will talk about in a forum (and more, actually!). Adding a forum to your store and website will only help business.
Search Engines Love Forums
Note from Scot
I've been running and designing successful forum systems since the mid 1980's.
One of my most successful forum systems is LearnJazzPiano.com. If you don't think a busy forum can help your site with search engine placement, go to any search engine and do a search for jazz piano. LearnJazzPiano.com comes up close to the top on every search engine and this is due to the forum system in place.
Search Engines Love Content That Changes
That's what a busy forum system does for your site: it creates new content all by itself. Your site can grow over night, while you're sleeping, and other people do it for you.
