Created a Forum in phpbb

    I have created and launched a Forum in phpbb3 and have also used phpbb-seo for optimization, but I don't know either it will be helpful or not and how do I get members in an easy way? :p

    I would love to create my forum in vbulletin but it is quite expensive :( .. so I decided to go with phpbb3 as I just used it befor and like it and it is free.
    SEMrush
    My New Forum URL is www.pakcafe.net/forum/

    So I need your help to get members and also want your review about my phpbb3 Forum and its optimization?

    If you cared about SEO in the slightest, you wouldn't use phpBB.

    The key to members is content. Post some good articles, and people will link to them.

    Not by a long shot. IPB wins that one with MyBB coming in second.

    phpbb-seo is looking nice so far, as it generates title, meta description and meta keywords automatically, you can see on my site I have posted few posts in different categories to see the response from Search Engines.

    which is quite a difficult work, because I couldn't find users that are interested to use forum :(

    It has too much cats/forums, so it looks empty, reduce the number of cats/forums in the start, the forum will look much populated, after a while when some forums/cats reache certain level (number of content) you can make sub cats in that forum.
