I will join several facebook math groups for the sole purpose of advertising Jason's site.

Thanks for the help, but be careful not to spam. I hope this works though.

Years ago I made an account at Yahoo Answers and my answers consisted of the actual answer, and then a link to a thread at MHB to see the actual work done using LaTeX. I figured that would be okay, and I answered hundreds of questions that way until one day one particular person began reporting all my answers, and I eventually got banned for spamming. I won a few appeals, but this same person kept reporting all my answers, and eventually the ban stuck.

A more natural way is to gradually build a social media page of your own. In that case, you can't get accused of spamming. However, it can take a lot of time if there isn't any money.

But Jobs in NYC I got 1,400 people for this one with no money!

Funny thing is, most of the answers at Yahoo stayed open, and I still see a lot of traffic at MHB from those answers. People have to register to see images, and other features, and we get a lot of people registering, but very few actually post. They register so they can see everything, consume what they came for, and then never return. So, it works to drive up membership numbers, but does very little to increase actual participation. People suck, in general. That's my takeaway from the experience. :)

Yeah, it seems like a few regulars are the ones giving the most activity. Anyway, though, if it's a business operation, then a lot of traffic, even if it's just regulars actually posting - could still make a lot of money (clicking on ads).

I got a better idea. Jason, send me $10. I will print 500 small flyers to distribute at Lehman College. I am within walking distance from campus. There are bulletine boards across the campus.

The flyer will say:

SEEKING FREE MATH HELP ONLINE? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THEMATHHELP.COM. POST YOUR QUESTIONS AND RECEIVE A REPLY FROM OUR EXPERIENCED MATH TUTORS. IF YOU LIKE THE SITE, SPREAD THE WORD.

Do you have PayPal? What is the best way to send?
