I think folks who just use the "Resent Topic" button are missing out on a lot of the great features. Especially the fact that it doesn't show which posts have pictures.

...in recent view there is a plus or minus button on the upper left to show or not show the forum listings.
I'm suspicious about the site and weather people are seeing my posts

Write about a topic that is highly interesting to a lot of people. Tell stories or anecdotes that are tinged with emotion, or that are inspirational. Teach us how to do something better, faster, smarter, cheaper, easier, etc. Give us a plausible promise and/or example of how to improve our lives without too much effort. Include some sharp, well composed photos that hit right at the heart of the topic. Keep posts of moderate length so that the readers don't get bored. Start a thread about a project that you are working on, and post regular (quarterly?) updates about the project for the next 10 years.
Threads with great titles, on hot topics, containing great photographs with descriptive names tend to attract search engine visitors. As an example, I just changed the name of the photo in the Queens for Sale thread from: "KIMG0098.jpg" to "treatment-free-beekeeper-holding-frame-of-brood.jpg". That'll bring more traffic from the search engines.
