*Laughs along with Doctor Inferno because Rok doesn't know what Docter Inferno is even laughing about.*

There's also automatic directories that can be used to promote as well as reciprocal links.

Well,this is the normal way to advertise your websites/forums,lol.

Well,since am posting here anyway,I'll show my secrets...

  • SEO
  • Affiliation Banners
  • Link to us {creating webpages for others to get links they can add in their signatures to spread the word about my website/forum}
  • Telling my close friends about my website Via email


I can't think about any more at the moment...
P.S, I don't pay for ads.

Most people don't give access for guess to their forums, especially to the posts with great content such as tutorials or articles. Search engine spiders won't be able to crawl the pages and index it. I don't think many people know about this.

yeah SEO is the key player... but as doc mentioned them bots needs to find content.

If your forum has no content, doesn't have anything , new, exciting or appealing to visitors at first glance ... well no one is going to stay.
Even if you purchase advert space in god knows where, if you don't provide anything or service... no one is going to visit your site.

SEO comes down to the quality and quantity of your content.


With the above said... I have noticed twitter to be a giant visitor generator.
If you have content, lets say an article about something (a tutorial , or giveaway or feature, or the best of something feature ...etc) all you need is a tweet with proper # searching keywords and you get guests by the million.

With each tweet refering to my site I get a nice load of visits.
It triples if I have latest news tweets like about CSS3.

And the best part of twitter is hitting a retweet session.
that is when someone retweets your message. If this happens you get double the visitors... if that message gets retweeted by 1 person... its 4x more, add 1 more retweet to that and you got x16.

also wise to keep track of your stats
google analytics and webmaster tools

If you are going to be using twitter to advertise your forums content. Use Twitterfeed.

All you do is take the RSS feed from the forum eg. http://help.forumotion.com/feed/ which is the RSS feed of this support forum. Link it to a twitter account. Create threads (or topics) and let twitterfeed tweet the new threads with links to them. Use a hashtag (#) to get noticed better as Jalo said.

But note, MOST of the guests will be bots so you may not be able to get many members, so dont fully rely on Twitter as a primary source of getting members (I know that from experience)

Although, I am personally having trouble getting members onto my forum. There is people registering and then they dont come back. I am gonna delete the "dead weight" in approx. 7 days so that will mean that the member numbers will go down.

I have tried SEO and it doesn't do anything for me. Too many gaming forums so its hard for Games World to get noticed.

Sorry if I am bragging on and looking like I'm advertising. I get carried away sometimes lol Crying or Very sad

Do you mean search results? It is actually as free as the air you breathe.
