    So I have built a forum, and I want to drive traffic to it, I know how to get fake traffic but I want real members, it's only a week old so far, I have used a couple of methods I know, but was wandering does anyone know of other ways to attract real customers to it.

    thanks..

    P.s sorry if it seems a bit noob, but i have never built a forum before

    I've built a sitemap, and I have been trying to get backlinks to it, But no joy yet, just keep trying I suppose.

    Thanks though

    Content too no point driving traffic if there is no content. I have used a news group scraper http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=65152 that allows you to pick newsgroups and put in to whatever forum category. Also there a yahoo answers scripts that do the same ... one I used was Vum post not available anymore
