You must update on a fairly regular basis... it becomes a personal thing... dont rely on others to promote your forum.... if you dont update, the servers cannot tell whether or not, its up n running... but they do when the admin has updated it.


I bombard the servers... google,Bing,Yahoo.Jeeves...  just to let them know "Im here"

My forum now is not only TOP LISTED, but has been accepted by many large promotional websites.... within the field of camping.

"...the best way to promote your forum and to become known on forumland as a livewriter, or whatever you would term someone known for their posts then..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...in fact, nothing tells a poster more about what he or she can expect than seeing a dull post linking whatever, whereas if your posts are inspiring, they will simply google your username and find you even without adding a link...", in fact, what the goblin had forgotten to add, was that it was best to have a unique username, and an evident persona, so the goblin just smiled, saying "...this way, any post you do anywhere draws people towards you without even thinking about it..."

I have not read through this entire topic, but would like to just give my two cents, and apologies if someone else has already covered .. 

Promoting is to progress or encourage The real question is how to get our forums to be seen on the internet.

Content and indexing are the key .

Creating a title that is made of of key words specific to the content of the forum.  Creating boards within that are specific to that content. 

Submiting the forum to at least the most popular search engines.

I have also found Google Blogger an ideal tool. They are indexed quickly and can be found on the first page of search engine key word results if done correctly. Making sure that the title is made of of key words relevant to the content.. Make sure the description for the blog is also relevant to the contect and title. Key words and content are king when it comes to being properly indexed.

Submit posts to the blog that are linked back to the forum..  Also use SMF's social media buttons and share topics to Facebook and others.

Hope this makes sense and helps a little..
