well it is a very specialised site, i think at this stage we have nearly every altezza driver in Ireland signed up! Im not sure what else we can do to keep numbers growing or keep people interested, nothing short of mass emailing people every week! Or maybe we need to organise an event or meet at least once every month. need to look at the rep list and re-organise that i think as a lot of them don't even be on here anymore!

I don't think there's much you can do, people will come and go for whatever reason be it lack of interest or other responsibility in life. some people will pop in to find out some info then never be seen again

Your right it's a very specialized site so the growth of the site is bound to slow and I'm sure when the nights are shorter the forum will get busy again

If the meets aren't generating enough numbers then I'd suggest teaming up with other similar groups. You might entice some ex-Tezzaworld people back again. :)

As for having signed up every Altezza driver, I very much doubt it. I'm seeing more and more of them on the roads, but I can't recall the last time I've seen a Tezzaworld sticker on any of them. I'm seeing 2-3 a day, sometimes up to 6 and they're not all the same.
I think the sticker could be linked to some sort of reward, I believe someone mentioned a private area before? You could hand over a few quid and get private membership access and the sticker in return. Exclusivity breeds desire!

Tezzaworld doesn't appear on the first page in straightforward Google searches like "Altezza Ireland" or "Altezza Owners Club." Dan, you can re-jig the results! :)
But seriously, not having "Altezza" in the domain doesn't help search results. There's actually very little mention of Altezza on the home page either. I'm not privy to the way Google indexes pages, but I would imagine these factors wouldn't help. I know I found Tezzaworld only after I posted to the Lexus owners club site. People aren't likely to come across the site by accident then, so you are relying on word of mouth.

Last of all, there's a great big stinking recession on right now. Car sales in general have all but disappeared and nobody has any cash to spend on improvements. With that goes enthusiasm, so you are going to see things get quieter for the foreseeable future.

i would if i could Rob!if people want to pm me keywords/phrases they think people would using when searching for altezza stuff, ill send it on to dizz and he can put it "in the code" to help get more search engine hits.

currently visits are down 6% in the last month

diagram below shows breakdown of where traffic is coming from:

Image

main keyword used to get to site has been 'tezzaworld'

Ye we need to get more cars stickered alright. i see a load everyday aswell without stickers, some could already be members but hard to tell unless they spot u too.

Anyone have ant tezzaworld stickers? I only have some caliper sticker sets at the minute, if anyone has the new sticker design template sned it on to me and i can try get some made up

I know alot of people not on the site & the reason they dont have to be is they can browse the site without joining.
