    Tips for getting index,
    - Create your Sitemap and submit it to search engines
    - Submit your RSS feeds to top RSS feed directories
    - Use your RSS feeds as your Sitemap
    - Social bookmarking submission
    - Social networking
    - Backlinks from some active websites which frequently get crawled
    - Ping the search engines

    How to get more members,
    - Promote your forum on different communities an niche related forums
    - Choose or hire some people to moderate your forum
    - Allow users to post their signatures (and later increase this limit to avoid spamming)
    - Ask your moderators to start new and informative threads
    - Ask your moderators to participate in threads
    - Navigation should be easy

    I appreciate Kaithe Clarke way and its my same advice and i am doing it for my site and also my clients sites..Strength your on-page and get some off-page techniques like article marketing, web 2.0 submissions, Press releases etc.., you get real organic traffic for your forum.

    Use twitter and other social media to get users for your forum.
