Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.

About this plugin:
This plugin will suggest your community to members of our website who ask questions that your members are qualified in answering. We will post questions from our members to the appropriate forum on your website. Your original members will discuss and answer them, and our members then become your members.

Want more members and more discussions?
By installing the Advizo plugin, your forum will be suggested to users that are interested in issues that your community cares about. This drives highly relevant traffic to your site while also providing great, targeted content. This content will in turn generate more traffic from organic search engine listings. This is the power of the Advizo network. Our plugin is a simple and convenient way to connect your site to the Advizo network.

Simplify access to your site while improving content quality
The Advizo network only sends highly qualified members to your site based on what they are looking for. Advizo is a closely monitored network, which ensures we drive only highly focused and targeted content to your site. The result is new members to your site that are already engaged with your community.

Seeing a drop in traffic from Google? Diversify your traffic now!
Lots of great bulletin boards and forums have seen a drop in traffic because of Google’s change in search ranking algorithm (called the Panda update). Now is the time to diversify your sources of traffic! Advizo helps people find communities that care about their interests and concerns. If you maintain a specialized discussion forum, Advizo will route new members and new discussions to your forum. Advizo will automatically glean from natural language analysis which categories and topics your forum specializes in. This also reduces the hoops that users have to jump through to find the right forum topic for them - it’s all done for them.

For more information about Advizo, please visit http://www.advizo.com/partner. Please be aware that we are currently an invitation-only site.

We have made several changes to the VB4 plugin as a result of feedback from our users and would like to suggest that if you were thinking about installing that plugin, please do so now. The updates in this version include the following:

1) Better category/forum suggestion - we understand your forum hierarchy better
2) Better handling of registration and authentication process - accommodates for potential conflicts of registration hooks or other items better.
4) Better ability for us to help debug any issues
3) Minor bug fixes

We look forward to sending more users with this new version 0.2.6.

In addition, we are getting a lot more questions and users so there you will likely get more users in turn.

Here's a suggestion - How about you ask sites first before joining a user account up and spamming them with your content.

Luckily my staff spotted the account quickly, banned it and submitted your details to all the antispam services.

Edit

In fact it's just been pointed out to me from one of my moderators that most of your 26 registered members are already banned from our sites for spam!!!!

This plugin seems a great way to let spammers to your site bypassing your own antispam checks.

z3r0,

Thank you for your feedback. Let me explain as clearly as I can what our service provides.

Our primary goal is to connect users that are seeking advice on any topic with the appropriate forum that best suites their question. I am not sure which site is yours, but we only send appropriate non spam questions to any sites.

If we get a question that is a good fit for any forum site we will create an account 'advizo' and we will post the question under that user. Then we will track the question and when new answers are posted we will notify our user. When they check our site, they will only be shown a snippet of the answer (125 characters) and then they will be prompted to go visit the site for the rest of the answer. In addition when we register and post a question to your forum under our catchall user 'advizo' we use the "Contact Us" form as well as try to PM an Administrator and let them know what we are doing and how they can become a partner.

We have several layers of spam prevention. Firstly at this stage in the product every single question is double checked by our team to ensure they are legitimate questions and we also double check our suggestion engine to ensure the correct forum was chosen and we then send the question on to the most relevant forum.

We hope that by sending these questions to the best communities our users will receive the best advice from "experts" that belong to that community.

As far as this is concerned if you are talking about http://forum.advizo.com that is a support forum for our site, that has nothing to do with our actual Advizo users. If you visit our main website advizo.com it is not a vBulletin site, it is a custom built website using a python framework. We are also currently an invitation only site as we are in a beta phase so you cannot just sign up for the service. By screening the users we have, as well as having a human overlook each question; opening your site to spammers is out of the question.

If you have any additional feedback on our product please let us know. Additionally if we have posted a question at your site and you wish for it to be removed simply let us know and it will be taken care of. We are not out to spam, pollute, or otherwise disrupt your community.
