So i am taking a shot with fortressforever.eu

So as promised, I started with a euro site
nothing fancy, i cannot develop or design stuff. Just SEO & Marketing

But i am trying to get some info from the community, what i MUST add on the site.

I am working on content but tips are welcome.

I try to figure out my topnav menu and some static pages like:

http://www.fortressforever.eu/inform...ose-your-class
http://www.fortressforever.eu/inform...rtress-forever

I experienced last week what i think it's an issue:
Knowing that the game is totally free and how to install / download all features first.
I had trouble and had to Google the stuff first. So i know that will be essential.

Ive seen from an SEO point of view, many people are googling free online FPS games, etc etc so i will work that out and SEO the shit out of it.

Other objective is to drive traffic to this forum, since i think it's useless to start another one atm.

What do you guys think?

Technically, this would confuse users, and hurt this site; best option would to have .eu redirect here.

Hello,

technically, i am seeing this from an SEO point of view and redirecting a new domain has no influence or impact.

1. The site i am creating is for specific target group Europe. Also mention that i am adding the content in Dutch, French, German, etc... in a further stage. And from an SEO point of view I set the target group in GWMT from Google.
2. My employeers and myself wil optimize the site for SEO
3. Besides the overall visibility on the web, i want to refer them to this site when it comes to community / help & forum.
4. The main goal is to get them to download the game and start playing, knowing that there is still an Euro community playing the game
5. When i boost up fortressforever.eu it should have an impact on this site as well when it comes to signups / new forum members

When I have enough data gathered from my own linkbuilding campaign, i can easily integrate that strategy to push more US traffic to this website.
It's about impressions in Google & marketshare on different countries without exclusion.

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact you want to help FF, but as a Front-end Developer / UI Designer I look at it differently.

I did have something written, but I'd figured it'd be best to discuss this over Skype, or which ever IM you use; Just send me a PM which one ya use, unless it's ICQ, then shank ya self

Hurt the site? How so? There's barely a site as is and I think a boost in any FF-themed site would be a boost to FF.

I say DO IT! Don't listen to ricejew. He's just butt hurt cuz his new FF site isn't near completion when it looks like you have one almost done in much less time!
