Yes, not doubting that we could find more players (good ideas mentioned above), just that we don't have much fresh blood and oldbies phase out with family and job responsibilities. At least is my own personal experience, and I'd wager others'.

Im also thinking if this wot tv show is as big a hit as GoT was, we will get a big influx of players
Yes, this, and I think that if we are able to be found by search or whatever, and are friendly to people new to MUDding, we will see quite a few people stick around. It was the buzz around the show that got me to think about coming back to the MUD. The MUD has a lot of appeal to people who are in love with the world, as long as they don't get turned off because of the learning curve they'll stick around.

I've actually already done SEO on the .info site. The problem, as Aria says, is that the site isn't linked from anywhere. Which means that it doesn't get crawled.

Another minor issue is that some of the site informational pages are pulled directly from the wiki. This is so that the site can be consistently updated by the playerbase. However, the SEO on these pages is limited because they actually don't have anything on them.

The reason that I don't have enforced https on the site is because it uses iframes, which aren't supported by https unless the embedded page is also https. Some of it could be changed, like the site stats, but it has embedded wiki data anyway, and a few other things.

I've also already submitted a sitemap.

I'm not going to comment on redirects, but I'm aware of the problem. :D

Thanks Lyren :)

I figured people were on top of it but I had some time at work and had some caffeine in me.

This is a good idea. The limitation was probably added as a form of spam control for malicious bots. I wonder if the infrastructure changes a few years ago has made this unnecessary.
