Learn how to use the Welcome Message Feature . You can also modify the Site Greeting that appears at the top of the page for a new member when they come to the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Why welcome new members? </li></ul><ul><li>You may want to encourage your other moderators to greet new members too, as this will entice new users to return to the site.

The discussion threads are a very important part of the site and aids the success of your wiki. A wiki site is nothing without the participation of others, so always reply to any comment left on a discussion forum . Keep conversation going on all fronts- start your own discussion threads as well! The more you entice people to join in on discussions, the more they will return to the site and participate on a regular basis. Encourage conversation around a page topic by linking readers to the “Comments” tab. To create this link, follow these 3 quick steps : </li></ul><ul><li>Step 1: In EasyEdit mode, highlight the copy you want to be linked: </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: Click the &quot;link&quot; button on the EasyEdit menu, and copy the full address for the current page into the box: </li></ul>

This will encourage the conversation to continue. </li></ul>

  14. 14. <ul><li>2.) Under &quot;Top Posters&quot; this homepage gives a shout-out to good contributors .

  19. 19. Add Tip of the Day <ul><li>Tip of the Day – Add to Home Page. In this way, you will communicate effectively with members – example: </li></ul>By &quot;jeremy_wetpaint&quot; - February 2, 2009 Want to get more traffic to your site? Try link building . Link building is one of the best ways to get more visitors to your site and improve where your site comes up in search engine results. Visit the Link Building page to learn more.
  20. 20. Link Building <ul><li>What is Link Building </li></ul><ul><li>Link Building = Lots More Traffic </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most important part of getting your site noticed is getting other sites to link to you. Bad sites don't tend to get links. Good sites do. When people link to your site, they are telling search engines like Google and Yahoo that your site is a good site. And all Google and Yahoo want is to deliver good sites on a results page when people search for a topic. In the same notion, links from good sites around the web will help your site, and bad links could hurt it. Here's an explanation of a good link and a bad link: A Good Link Sites that have a topic similar to yours are good sites to link from. It's also good to have a link that has your site name in the title, or something about your site in the link. For example, if your site is about dog health, it's better to have people link to you with dog health than click here . This gives the search engines and indicator that your site really is about dog health. A Bad Link Linking from sites that have nothing to do with your site doesn't help your site in the eyes of the search engines. Linking from all over the web, or creating empty sites just to give your site a link will actually hurt your site. This looks like spam to the search engines and your site will probably not come up in the results when people search for the topic of your site. Good ways to link build: </li></ul><ul><li>Create unique content that others can't help but link to. </li></ul><ul><li>Find bloggers who blog about your topic, and ask them if they willlink to or review your site. </li></ul><ul><li>Put your link on your MySpace or Facebook account. Have your friends put their link on their accounts as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Exchange links with other Wetpaint sites that are similar to your site. </li></ul><ul><li>Find sites that are similar to your topic and ask them if they will exchange links with you. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Lock Pages <ul><li>Lock Page </li></ul><ul><li>How do I lock a page? </li></ul><ul><li>If you are the site creator, administrator, or moderator you are able to lock pages. Locking a page prevents non-moderators from making edits to that particular page. Locking a page is useful if the page is subject to repeated offensive or irrelevant edits by non moderators. </li></ul><ul><li>To lock a page, select 'Lock page' from the 'More Tools' menu at the top of the page. The 'Lock This Page' dialog box will appear as shown here: </li></ul><ul><li>Type in the reason you've decided to lock the page and click on the &quot;Lock Page&quot; button. </li></ul><ul><li>You will be asked to confirm that you wish to lock the page. After you've locked the page, only moderators can make edits to it. If you later decide to unlock the page, follow the steps above, but choose &quot;Unlock this page&quot; from the &quot;Manage Page&quot; drop down menu. The date and time of the lock and unlock actions, along with the name of moderator responsible, will be listed when you viewthe page history. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Post Announcements <ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><li>Cutting-Edge Colon Cancer Information from Johns Hopkins Dear Sirs, Happy New Year.
