So, I go to Nabble.com, make the forum there... then, add the HTML to Yola?

Hello Sports

I would agree that you should include all 3 ideas you came up with - forum, blog, and news page. This would be a great start I think. You can always add more content as your site develops.

Once you've completed the design and content aspect of it, don't forget to look at the SEO side of it. Here's some great tutorials on how to do this:

SEO Tutorial 1: Introduction to the search engines: An introduction to search engine optimization and how the search engines index and rank websites.

SEO Tutorial 2: Planning your site with SEO in mind: All about keyword and keyword research, planning your site and choosing a good domain name.

SEO Tutorial 3: Building your site with SEO in mind: Learn how to create search engine friendly website content as well as write title, description and keywords tags and give images alt attributes.

SEO Tutorial 4: Promoting your site: Various tools for promoting your site such as Google Webmaster, submitting a sitemap, link building and blogging.

You can also watch our Introduction to SEO webinar on Yola.tv for a quick overview!
