One of the topics that keeps coming up, especially when it relates to SEO, is whether it’s ok to reword discussion topics to ensure more people find it, respond to it, and it is most likely to attract the sort of responses the author wants.
Trying to get a read of what people here think.
Very often I see an excellent question or discussion that’s hidden behind a relatively broad, unspecific, or just unexciting topic. My temptation has always been to reword some of the good ones to ensure they get more traffic and become a bigger topic. But I’m concerned about how people will react to that.
Another option is to drop the author a note and see if they might be willing to do it. But that adds another step to this whole process.
What do you believe? Would this upset you if we did it? Do you do it in your communities?
