            well

            one way is to goto site similar to yours and post

            "i went to this site on x and found x, what do you guys think"

            and people will follow the link and the owner wont be mad because he wont know it is you trying to steal his members LOL.

            good luck. yahoo goes a long way.

            most boards take YEARS to get going, stick with it!

                  You need;
                  • to find search engines and add yourself
                  • to put this is your signature so other people can see
                  • you need to advertise on sites for free (your friends, sites ?)
                  • have a mission statement on your site so people can see what it is for
                  • if you have the money - pay someone to place a banner on there site (not popup!)


                  I hope that helps

                      It takes a lot of work, and a lot of patience!

                      Members are not just going to appear.

                      Post on other forums and put a url to your site in your sig.

                      Get listed in search engines.

                      Try a banner exchange, I use a fitness banner exchange, and it seems to help with exposure.

                          There are hundreds (proabably around 400+) of search engines!

                          You can pay companies to have your site listed, or you can manually submit them, the big ones can take several months to list you.

                            You can't just expect to get 100s of thousands of people, especially anytime soon.

                            It doesn't matter how popular your boards subject is or how popular you think your board is, it doesn't matter if your board is about the hottest most debated subject today, it takes time to get lots of members, sometimes months, even years.
