can anyone please share any tips, How to make forum popular?

any thoughts ?

You need to have a unique design, unique content something that makes your forum stand out from all the others. It takes time and dedication and waiting and growing to become popular

Eh I'm 50/50 on it because to many links can be a bad thing but at the same time it's alright

Make the forum unique and different from all those other forums around, give reasons to people to come back by making it something new that people have not seen before.

To make your forum popular you must have to make it very informative and concise, unnecessarily lengthening the forum can take away users interest over the forum's articular, and you should have very good promotion ideas to make your forum Popular.

The most impotent thing is that your topics are original and it is the first time news. Don't forget tell you friend by social media.

Make it as uniquely as possible in that it has a touch of simplicity and class. Assemble contents into a user-friendly one. One of the problems with forums is having too overwhelming unorganized contents making me don't want to continue exploring on that forum. Make it visually inviting, easy to access, and have interesting topics on threads. Have friendly, active, and responsive staff that will entertain and answer inquiries and promote on social networking sites. You can also have a review from users to rate your forum, which will serve as basis for improvement :):hug:

I personally feel that you should be an established and trusted member in a similar forum, which will give your new forum a bonus credibility compared to the new unknown startups.

Running a forum is not an easy job, due to social media, forums are dying. At start you will need to get full time moderators who are willing to add good content and engage with users so users feel this forum is alive and worth contributing and for me that job is pretty tough as at start you will not get many visitors and it will need long time to establish your community.

Some of the ways to make a forum popular is first its content( original ideas, unique notes and story line) exceptional design and 'never seen before' structure in the form of style and class. be active and responsive to contributor on your forum, and of course through social media platform.

Personally I think the days of running just a forum are over. You need some sort of CMS to get visitors to your forum and get them engaged in reading something that they want to comment about. And even then there is little to no chance of your forum becoming a big board. So if your wanting to run a forum do it because your passionate about the subject. If your doing it for money the forum has already failed and your wasting your time, money, and effort.

Forums need an interesting desing, a good set of rules, to be active and to have friendly moderators to make users feel confortable. Users can tell other potencial users about it and make it popular. If you want more visitors and users you can promote your forum on other webs, but that depends on the topics and the threads, the content of your forum. I mean, there are forums about especific topics that are meant for certain type of user, you can promote your forum on webs with topics similar to yours to ensure you will gain visitors who enjoy the content and who would likely join. Forums aren't very popular now but I have visited some that are dedicated to certain fandoms and are active. They have many users because they talk about something they like and share opinions, theories and other things like that.

One of the basic requirements to make your forum popular is to build it up on the niche that is very popular with people.
Secondly, you need some sort of reward programs. reward programs will not only attract users but also make the users active.
Thirdly, you should also offer money making opportunities on your forum where the users can sell theri stuffs.

There are a couple of things you'll need for that. First of all a design that isn't confusing and is pleasant to look at. You'll also need to focus on an idea that is searched by many people and it's unsaturated as in there being a lot of forums that are like that. We're living in 2017, so having a successful social media account, will always help you with that, but if that's too hard for you then investing some money in certain websites could help you.
