    How can I get more members to my site, my site has 115 members, but rarely gets any, maybe 4 a month.
    The posts is all good, but recently there was an error and the forum was down for 2 weeks and I just got it back up a week ago, and now the forum has been slow.
    It gets now like less than 50 posts a day, and it used to get over 200.
    I also want to try to get more ACTIVE members but how can I?
    Thanks

    Advertise it using adwords, visit other forums with similar topics and use the URL of your site in your signature, buy traffic, etc.... you could also start posting interesting threads on your own forum and be sure google is crawling your site :bigthumb:

    ive been using digg a lot

    i found that the best way to advertise is to let others find out about your badass posts.

    Trade links with similiar forums, and ones with equal traffic. Otherwise no one will want to give you their members.

    Cream rises, if you stack good content and do minimal advertising, they will come, if not it will fail. Statistics say you're probably going to fail.

    I get between 50-100 new users to sign up on my site every day. It's all word of mouth and search engines. I only advertised for about 2 weeks on Adwords and that was about a year ago. I'm up to almost 15,400 active users now (over 25,000 have registered, but not all of them have used the site other than registering)

    Although my site isn't a forum :dunno:

    Be sure that your site is optimized to show up at the top of google searches for any key words you want. I have the #1 spot for a lot of key words/phrases relating to online checkbooks or checkbook registers.

    Why would it fail? The forum is ok, but has recently been falling a little, since there hasnt been many new active members.

    He is just saying statistically. Not necessary your forum.
