i have a new forum, i feel it is doing well, but i want to hear from people who have successfully launched a forum and made it huge.

i need the advice to take it to the next level.

my site is very small i have posts daily.

just wondering if anyone has any feedback to give me.

i am advertsing in google adwords, and various other sites.

is there anything else i can do to get thousands of members joining?

thanks steve

ps i am laready building backlinks.

If your forum covers a niche that no-one else or few is covering, then you will slowly get members by work of mouth. If you are competing in a busy market then it may be worth having a few boards that are quite specialist.

Make sure you visit the forums every day and reply to new posts, make new members welcome, and start new threads to get people discussing.
