    Best way to market a forum is through forum marketing. Whether you like it or not as its slow but its the most effective way.

    Help people in your niche forums. Once they trust you. They will join.

    This doesn't mean that you posting in each and every thread you can find. It means you have to build authority in your niche so members would like to join and contribute.

    Doing SEO for a forum is not like a blog. You can't rank quickly you have to understand it. Try guest blogging in your niche sites. Provide useful reviews of games and consoles. Its the best practice to gain exposure and also you will gain quality links which in turn will help you get more visitors. And members as well.

    Learn about your competitors using ahrefs and then do some link building.

    I agree with RomanEpo. You should choose some gaming keywords that have low Search Volume and low competition. And do guest blogging, forum posting, quality article submission, social media posting, answering questions, slide sharing with that keywords.

    Wow, thank you so much guys! I did not think I would get this much support :D

    For those of you who suggested blogging as it ranks quicker than forums. Would the blogging have to be a software like WP used? or can it be a blog add-on for the forum software? Would it still rank quicker?

    A blog is a blog, doesn't matter whether it is a WP or blogspot or just an extension of any forum script.
