>Hi everyone - Anyone know of any ways to promote message boards? I have three message boards on, and hope to add a few more. While I receive around 20,000 hits a month from around 3500 unique visitors, the message boards are dead.
>I'd like to find some ways to drive some more traffic to these forums. I think they can be a very valuable tool for outdoor enthusiasts here in New England. Jim's board has proven a message board's usefulness. Any thoughts or suggestions?
>Thanks! GB
>P.S. Don't worry. I'll soon be ditching those slow-loading mouseover images on the AZ Message Board page.

We have a classifieds page that was slow to get started. What we did was create various entries of our own. If people see that a board is active they will contribute, if it looks dead they won't waste their time. So post messages of your own using different names and emails. Asking questions encourages responses. Keep doing this until the board is active enough on its own.
