Re: Gradual practice

I don't want to get offtopic from the interesting discussion but Ram Bomjon was shown to be a fake sharlatan who then went to become a sadistic guru. He killed a couple of woman and did all kind of sadistic stuff. He is invulnerable in front of justice because of being friend with the prime minister...

Re: Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

Fixing the metta description should get us to place 1 but if it doesn't, then we might end up forced to do a negative SEO attack on competitors. For example we can redirect a spammed casino domain to freeshanga.com and hope to get them deindexed by google. We already got one competitor covered since...

Re: Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

My bad. The trailing slash problem has also been fixed. I was looking at an old nibler test. After clicking "retest" it gets 10 on server behavior and says the problem has been fixed.

Re: Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

I found the problem. DhammaWheel does not have a proper redirect set up to redirect from the www version to the non-www version. Also no proper redirect for the trailing slash at the end (sometimes it's dhammawheel.com/, other times it's without a trailing slash). Webmaster fixed those. Someone com...

There are countless people being lost to mahayana due to dhammawheel having bad SEO.
Is there a competition? What's the prize if one wins?

Re: Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

Very good observation No Mind about the keyword buddhism not showing up. But as for buddhism related keywords and google AI being very smart, that's not quite true. It's actually very stupid and picks based on keyword of that particular search. With "buddhist" being so low in DW, it does not get pic...

Re: Should I even be meditating yet?

Meditation is the 8th step of the 8thfold path. Starting with meditation is, like someone else also pointed out, "an amateurish approach". It's like trying to build the roof of a house before building the house. Plus, one can never be sure weather he is practicing correctly. This is why one should a...

Re: Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

There are just 20 monthly searches for "theravada forum". There are 1000 for "buddhist forum" and "buddhism forum". This is a big problem. The dhamma can not spread if it does not appear on google. People simply can not find this forum. It's a very difficult place to find. This place needs to get nr...

Dhammawheel is not growing - because it has zero SEO

What's the point of building a forum if nobody can find it ? What's the point of trying to spread the dhamma, build an online shanga, etc. - if nobody can find it ? If you google "buddhist forum" - dhammawheel doesn't even get on first page. The sister forum is nr 3 on first page, but dhammawheel is...

Re: If mind = brain

What is it that makes the two states related/connected/comparable? the idea of a self (the agent who experience and who witnessed/got affected by the change). Are you saying that with no self-view there is no experience of change? There is no experiencer of change. There is no experiencer of change...

Re: If mind = brain

These Krishnamurti ideas are wrong views according to buddhism: 14. The one who evades all questions thinking that answering them would be “attachment” to something. 15. The one who evades all questions fearing that he will be caught in his ignorance. 16. The one who evades questions because he is s...

Re: If mind = brain

If one gets shot and loses half his brain, the experiences that will arise after that will be different. You cannot know this first hand. You might have seen people with brain injury and they reported or appeared to be experiencing the world differently, and out of this, it is concluded that experi...

Re: If mind = brain

I'm not sure how we talk about the brain from any other point of view except the experiential. If we are talking factually, there is no problem. I do get what you are talking about when you describe your descriptions. We don't experience our brain, hence any talking about it includes belief/specula...
