    I would advice thinking carefully about what you want to offer your visitors.

    If you think on something that is useful to them, the odds are that your site gets visitors. If you're creating a site just for the sake of getting visitors, it will probably be tougher for you to get started.

    It can be hard to keep a forum going..

    I only see 4 users on site..
    Currently Active Users: 4 (0 members and 4 guests)

    Also if I was not getting at least one registration per day,, I would have a re think about forum ownership..

    I own a forum,, it is online 7 months,, most times you will see 40 or so users on site at any one time,, I have also made it very hard to register,, even saying that, I still expect to see one sign up per day.
    Traffic for last two days or so..
    [​IMG]

    You need to pick your Niche or subject matter,, and really stick to it.. ( if your site is about DOGS people expect to see posts about DOGS and Never CATS)
    I say the above because, if you do have a core of visitors and they are the backbone of you forum, if you then expand to cover other stuff, you may loose them..

    Still trying to get traffic to mine also. I have another forum I have run for 10 years, well established, I even tried to get some members to push traffic to my new site, but is difficult. Keep pushing all your backlinks. Post replies on blogs, Facebook etc

    I can suggest use Fiverr to get extra traffic for really cheap price. For example we provide real human traffic - 5000 direct visitors for just $5. You can check our service here: 5000 direct traffic.

    "You will want to publish articles, make your forum SEO friendly and use signature with your link in it, that will help increase your traffic."
    As Fionix say, I am thinking to attach a blog to your forum and Addison really decent content in there, then visit other forums – as the other poster above says – and you can link people to your excellent articles. If you write one every week, then keep a list of all the good posts and their URLs, then it won't take you long to post them around the place. And yes, you do have to do it yourself, just take an hour a day to go posting around the place – forums, Quora, Reddit, and everything you posts Stumble it and Tweet it.

    Give it a few months and this will get you a steady stream of targetted traffic.

    Send me a pm if you want more info than this.
    So first of all your forum is full with ads, which are useless when you dont have any traffic or activity going on.
    Second of all the theme looks more like a theme of a warez forum not a webmaster forum.
    Third the forum has spam in it .
    If you want pm me and i will elaborate my post more and send you some sites you could and should use to promote your forum.

    Its all about having a solid niche that's not over done. Giving your dedication and having the right resources. Threads and the content on the forum is what really generates real human traffic. Then comes to how you market and advertise your forum. SEO and a good niche would do the trick.

    I am not sure if you are looking for this kind of service or not, but I will tell you just in case. There is a site called PostLoop that is for forum owners. You can list your site on there and people will post on your forums to gain points. You earn points by posting in other forums as well. You can set the quality of the users on a scale 1-5 and the close to 5 you set it, then the better quality if posts you will receive. But just Google Postloop. By doing this, your forum will look more active and also maybe some of those members will stick around.
