I decided to advertise on one of the biggest blogs in my industry. After advertising for 3 months, the blog owner, after telling me how many hits my board was getting started her own forum this month and it's already ranked higher than mine in searches and it seems like her forum has hit the ground running, while I've struggled with mine since June. I've even seen members from my forum already on hers. It's frustrating and I feel that by advertising on her blog that I gave her the idea and shot myself in the foot. Any advice or anyone have a similar situation? This is really bumming me out and I really want my forum to succeed.
