    No strict rules, but you need to do that a lot and 100% unique content until real people come and post, launch a forum is one of the hardest thing, the better is probably make only one category with lot of post and allow the non registered user to post (but for avoid all the automated shit you can use the google captcha)

    I bet you can find a ton of content to post on the forum from Pinterest. Also get some new users on the forum. Start creating those fake users and start posting, make a discussion. Ask a few friends to join and to post. You can also buy some posts on PostLoop or on Fiverr.

    You can hire someone/some people to do all those things for you. Make them start new threads and reply as well.

    New forum!!! here some tips:

    1. First of all what you need is well written Unique article , this will take a week or month to get a user (it works at anytime)

    2. You need to calm because it is such a annoying one , keep update don't give up :cool:

    3. Invite people (it is not a hard one i think)

    4. Add bookmarks and social media networks

    Good Luck :)

    Yes. This is quite a way. Plus hiring people to make the forum active for the start.

    Hire a few forum posters to get the forum busy looking. This may attract others to join as well.
