    Listen, I hate to be an ass hole, but myself and a few others have posted links for you to use, telling about forums with 10X more members than DP.

    If millions of members isn't good enough, I don't know what to tell you.

    Once again: http://rankings.big-boards.com/?sort=members .. even sorted out for you ..

    You have sure put me in my place - gotta accept the first answer I get and never ask again - not!

    I am trying to expand the discussion so others can tell us about forums that they find get great results - traffic and member numbers are all fine and good but viewers who are willing to spend their time and money and join into your business are of more value!

    My Niche is in the "Money Making" area so most forums will not accept posts about this so I have to dig deep to find those where individuals are willing and looking for something or someone to join - most people want a mentor or guru to help get them started!

    I found this list to add to the discussion !

    And how the hell were we suppossed to know what your niche or business was without you telling us?

    You asked a question, and we answered it. If you had said what you were exactly looking for, we could have helped better.

    You basically just said "Anyone know of any good cars?"
    We said, for example "BMW"
    You got pissed because we didn't say a Benz, and thats what you wanted, but never asked for.

    Anyway, try MoneyMakerGroup.com, its mostly spammy and HYIP shit, but there are tons of users.

    Just a thought but how about using Firefox and using the SEO Tool Extension from seobook.com but first do a google search using the this search code
    "your keyword" inurl:forums which will give you results with any url with your keyword and the forum(s) domain extension in the url or if you want a somewhat more relevant result with your keyword(s) in the Title plus the results I just mentioned previously use this search command instead:
    intitle:"your keywords" inurl:forums
    Now where I state "your keywords" in those search commands mentioned above you can use quotes if you want to for an exact match but I normally use without quotes to get more results. Now that you have the results page up toggle your SEO Tool of FireFox on (going from gray to color) and then refresh your page. Now you will see all kind of SEO data at your disposal. You can click and get the data you want while on the result page and you can even click on the hyper links that will take you straight to that page where your data for that specific result came from. Now even though the results can be somewhat skewed with Alexa and etc. it still gives you an idea of what type of traffic high or low goes to that forum. The data I check is the Page Rank,Sometime the Google Cache Date but not neccessary, Age of the Domain, Alexa Rank, the Compete.com Rank and Uniques data. Now they have other data you can check like Bloglines which tell you how many people are subscribed to that feed but that is up to you. This helps me to better target my niches hopefully with valuable discussions in the chosen forums as well as linking to my sites that has more content as well as profitable monetization. I hope this helps but keep searching there is alot to learn outside the box. BTW this can also gives me better ideas of what topics to come up with when writing articles that can be useful for readers when they come to your site or blog but that is another topic to be covered later. ;)
