    thing is most niches already have 100s of forums set up already, but i guess you could give it a go, areas like health & fitness, Childcare, mens health, fishing, sports forums the list is endless, you would need then to get people to start posting on it to make it seem busy you can pay people to do this

    I'm pretty sure there are very few forums on pets...so give that a try if you'd like to :)

    Adsense and selling membership would be the primary way I could see someone making money off a forum.

    bit of a black hat method but hey

    make an invite only forum, put a bit of content

    then go around other forums asking if anyone has an invite to this fourm you say your willing to pay $4,000 for an invite as its so underground etc etc

    create a few accounts , bitching at the person saying that they should not even being mentioning the forums name let alone asking to buy invites and saying that its exclusive and no one will sell you an invite

    create another account which says they have an invite and can supply invites and leave it at that

    sure enough you will have plenty of people offering to pay to gain access to it, rinse and repeat!

    the best way i think is ads like adhitz or something and get paid for every click. they have them all over this forum as well as others.
