I think most people that have been paying attention have noticed zombie threads being resurrected by people finding this board through a Google search and coming in to register just to comment on an old thread. I have had three people register and contact me about things that I wrote based on things they found on Google searches that were really specific. They were all welcome because they filled in some details that I didn’t know but it made it obvious that everything you post here is for the world to see and search. I have also found both my own posts and those of other people here that I know through Google searches that I thought were unrelated at the time.
How much new traffic is generated from Google? How many hits do older threads get?
