    500 members in two months is very good start IMO. I think you should keep doing what you been doing consistently.

    i think you should decide first what do you want??

    if you want to flip this in future buy poster but if you want to maintain it as unique and real ,attract organic members.

    Did you get the Google SEO plugin? It'll really help your MyBB forum out quite a lot. You can then submit its dynamic sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools.
