Hi,
my suggestion is that you put some kind of information on your pages here (maybe below top Menu?), that will encourage people to register since non-members - members ration is like 4-7 x 1 all the time ..

Most of the guests that you see in the who's online box are often times search bots, such as the GoogleBot and ones from other search engines.

Xcel is right.
Most forums that have moderate traffic and have been online for a while will often show more guests than registered users.

We've had hundreds at times of Google or Inktomi doing major re-indexes.

The smaller the membership base the larger the ratio.

I have a forum with 60 members but the most ever online was 64.

It also has a lot to do with how high the time-out is set for the forum. If the time-out is set high it can show far more members online than actually are online.

What Blue said is correct. It will also depend on how well the site is opimized for search engines. I know Jose has done a great job in that regard.

Thanks Xcel_Hosting!

The archive script makes all forum URL's as search engine friendly so they can be easily indexed by most search engines.
