I am thinking of starting a Webmaster Forum for Indians. I have never seen a forum dedicated for Indian Webmasters, do you think it will work?
Drop in your suggestions and opinions.
Jason There is potential traction here, but if it's all in Hindi for example, then it might put off other international members from visiting. You should at least consider supporting two languages at a minimum.
Why not ? There is a lot of scope for country specific forums.
You will have to do a lot of work in aggregating them based on nationality.
Abhi Hmm i see, "Aggregating them based on nationality" is the issue now. I am not good with Webmaster topics 😃 i need to steal few content from Admin Tech Forum
You can do it. It is not that hard 🙂
I don't think a country forum can sustain in webmaster field unless it is going to use a local language. If you are doing it in France, do it in French, in China, use Mandarin and so on.
English is taken. That is not going to change easily. I am only saying that it is hard to make money out of it. If it is for pleasure or academic interest, then no problem. English is balle balle.
Regional language is good. There is great potential in that region. But you will find it hard to use in India. Too many regional languages. Their currency note has 17 languages in it. Those are just prominent ones. Even Netflix provides audio in 4 languages.
Dropped the idea as of now, as it requires lot of work and time which i don't have and i don't want to spend.
Jason it requires lot of work and time
What were you planning ?
Jason i don't want to spend.
You can always start an FB group.
Abhi Yes i can start a FB group but i am not in Facebook or have no interested in starting one.
admin Hmm, thanks for the advice. If i start i will consider this.
Hire a writer who can do well in Hindi. That will reach almost 50 % of India.
phenomlab Will consider your point if i start one. Thank you!
