Having area/location specific sections to a forum based on moving to a country

    Hi Guys,

    I run a forum for Brits who are thinking or have just moved to Spain and it has generic sections like General Discussion, Motoring, Property etc etc.

    The site has been up 2 years now and although the traffic is going up very gradually it's not where I would ideally like it and yes for those of you who know about the subject I know it's not a good time for people moving countries so that is a part of the problem.
    But! I have been looking at my direct competition and they're all slow but the sites that are area specific say Brits living in Ibiza for example are busy vibrant forums.

    So I'm thinking of adding are specific sections to my forum but I'm in 2 minds with how to go about this. At first I would going to just add sections for all the popular areas in Spain that Brits live in but now I'm thinking perhaps just start out with a few areas as requested by current members and add new areas as requested.

    My other problem is my regular users of the forum are not overwhelmed with the idea which is giving me second thoughts but the site needs more life and this is the only way I can think of that may help the situation.

    Any advice would be extremely appreciated! :)
