    For one, why not post the link to your forums in your signature or post? That way we can visit it. That's one way you can make your site known to people. If you go to other blogs and forums to comment then make sure you refer to your forums whenever possible and applicable.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    A good tip is to find other forums that will let you link to your forum in your signature. You can also guest post on some blogs in your niche and link to your forum in the post.

    Make several different accounts yourself and have interesting and controversial conversations with your self. People will want to join in and will sign up to post their point of view. Try to make many topics about current events.

    Thumbs up! It is just like passive virtual word-of-mouth promotion. Your mail recipients will most likely be after what you are up to. It is a decent way to promote too.

    Building a forum following takes time and patience. The low cost solution is to diligently start interesting and relevant topics, which encourages those interested in your topic to join and contribute. Dedicate yourself to writing a good post every day, or every three days, etc. But don't fall into the trap of filling your own forum with spammy posts, and don't let spammers join who would do the same.

    Great topic starters also provide good search engine spider food, and will eventually start to increase your search-engine derived traffic.

    As you post, make sure that your older posts get indexed by Google. With VBSEO and some good quality inbound links, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Also, when you state that your forum is ranking well, you have to consider what it's ranking for. It needs to be ranking for relevant searches, which is why having great topics and quality posts is very important!

    All of this advice is wonderful. I’d like to stress that there really isn’t an overnight method, but consistent work and promotion. SEO loves Forums. The main thing you want to focus on is setting up a quality forum. As you could see, almost everyone who responded here was curious about checking out the forums. Make sure to control SPAM, Trolls, etc., while focusing on leaching from other successful forums/blogs/companies. The SEO and backlinks will build from there, which will increase the Google rankings.

    Good luck!

    Forums take FOREVER to get off the ground. Make sure you have a LONG-TERM view on your project. Also, what are your SEO targets? Do you have specific keywords that your forum will rank on that will bring the type of traffic that will want to post in your forum? You should.. Then you can start link-building and all the rest just like any other website.

    How is your forum coming along? Are you getting new members? I'm curious to know what it is about. Maybe you could tell us what niche your forum is in? I'm sure we'll be able to contribute more if we have this information.
