As you probably noticed, when you view a topic in a forum, a "Similar Topics" listing may be displayed on the bottom. What is it?

Topic titles on buysell-browse.com get indexed.as full text, meaning for every word used. Technically, there is a MyISAM table among the InnoDB mysql database tables powering this board that allows full text indexing. When matches are found in the database, the first 10 topics using some of the same words as those in the original message title are displayed in the list.

The result may not necessarily be a good match for the intended subject of the message, but you will notice that at least one word is common in the titles displayed. So if you want better exposure, be as descriptive of the content and targeted toward your intended audience as you can with the words used to construct your topic titles.
