i have two forum sites on the subjects that i have expertise. i also wrote a lot of content in them myself, so that they will not appear empty and now they each have several hundred threads with good original content. even the domain name of the forums are really, really good and seo friendly.
however i am not getting any.. i mean any visitors.. what might be wrong? what should i do except paying millions of dollars to advertise? i checked and the registration system is also working
You say you wrote a lot of the content yourself. Maybe that's the problem. A forum is a place for people to ask questions, share ideas, discuss topics of mutual interest. If one person is seen as monopolising the content, it won't be such an attractive place for other people to participate. And if people don't want to participate, no amount of marketing will improve it.
Above all, a forum needs to be a welcoming, open community - not a sounding board for one person's views. Concentrate on fixing that, and you might be that much closer to success.
