Ok so I have been using all the techniques here which have been working great. My goal is to build an actual community site but just ramp up the amount of time it takes to do it. So so far I have had articles written, and done seo, the site is filling up with content, then I am going to start buying backlinks once I have the site full of some decent content. But I have a pretty vacant forum. Should I just let it start populating on its own. Seems slow, does anyone have any techniques to get a forum up and going faster?
