Here is a list of seven reasons why your cousin bait "execution" may not be working and what you can do about it:
- You don't get alerted to blog comments by email because you haven't the correct comment settings
- You do not have any way to contact you on your site so you must include your email address visibly
- Your site is so boring that no one wants to contact you so make it enticing
- You don't include locations AND names AND dates so that search engines index all this information for future researchers
- Your forum entries may be stale and lonely so check out the genealogy forums from time to time and update them
- Your One World Tree entries aren't paying off because your entries aren't complete, so source them and make them complete
- Your "cousins" just do not care - this you can't control but if you make your site enticing you might get lucky
