    HOW DID YOU FIND US?
    As one of the oldest and largest Chevy Truck Forums on the web, I'm still amazed to hear new ways that people find us.

    Yes, most of the time we get new members from Google and the other search engines after they have done a search for any number of topics. However, we're getting more and more from Facebook these days and other social media ... and traditional media as well.

    So please take a minute to tell us how you found this website and let us know how we can help you get more out of your investment in GM!

    Sorry it came out so small of font. I used the words "chevy truck club" and it is listed the 8th result on the list. Hope that helps.

    googled it

    I was having problems with the 4wd engaging so I googled "suburban 4wd won't engage" or something like that and I came across these forums. A quick bookmark and the rest is history. When it doubt, just google it!

    Very cool. I didn't know that we had so many people finding us through Google. We're still trying to move towards to top 5 or 10 for many of the keywords, hopefully we'll get there soon.

    That good that we're getting listed higher and higher on Google each week. We are almost always in the top 5 on MSN and Yahoo. Hopefully we'll get that high on google too soon.

    Thanks to everyone who's got a blog, or a myspace page where you're linking to this site. That helps us A LOT on Google rankings.

    Craigslist spam (Dallas-Fort Worth)

    I've been flagging off every version of this club (Suburban, Equinox, Trailblazer, etc) UNTIL the last round of postings where it was mentioned in the posting that this site is run by local D/FW people.

    So now it's not spam to me anymore. And since I have owned a 1984 Suburban since late December, there's no reason for me not to join. I will say there are a LOT of ads, though. But there IS content, and that's what message boards are all about.

    Well, I'd have to say that there isn't much spam on craigslist that came from me. I've posted no more than about 10 messages ever on craigslist about this site every really.

    I'm trying to find a way to keep all of this stuff going without costing me any money. Some days I don't make anything ... like $3 or so, with the rising cost of bandwidth and hosting costs and URLs and etc. It would be nice to find a way to keep it running w/o having to run ads though.

    ANYHOW, thanks for joining up! :lol:
