    How Can I Get My Visitors To Join And Post? Celeb Pic Forum

    ive been posting everyday for a year and a half and have 500 to 1000 EVERYDAY on my site, 80% of which are unique visitors and i have 2 members that come on once in awhile. what can i do to have people want to join and be a part of my community. i dont want to do contests, what are some things that mite make want people to join. theyre all coming from other forums so they are people who want to talk to other people and post, all my traffic comes from The Internet Movie Database which is a forum. people love to talk about celebs, what theyre wearing or whatever, ive been visiting sites for years and theres tons of people.

    What motivated you to start posting on these types of forums? What worked for you might work for other people.

    Perhaps create some threads designed to get visitor input? Maybe poll threads like "Who is hotter, Brittany Snow or Nina Dobrev?" or "Taylor Swift: Curly or Straight Hair?". Maybe even threads like "Where would you take Lyndsy Fonseca on a first date?"
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Hey those are some pretty neat suggestions for any site Will. Might have to see if
    I can adapt them to some of my sites.

    True. Something along the lines of the above work great for blogs.
    Get people to read and think, and then comment.

    Hi,

    @Will that is some really good advise Being an owner of a forum how many of those types of threads do you feel one can start in the general chat area before the owner of the forum gets PO at you

    How about giving members dofollow signature links. There's lots of celebrity site owners looking to promote their sites.

    Probably that depends upon the topic of the forum. I really don't like those threads here, but if I was running a celebrity forum I would love threads like that.

    Back on topic.
    If you are getting 500+ unique visitors per day, and no members out of that, you should take a careful look at how long those visitors stick around and where they go on your forum.
    Then look at your forum, and your forum categories.
    Maybe you need more categories? Or a drop of some categories?

    And make it easy for people to join by making it hard to miss a sign up banner on your forum.

    Or a possibility here:
    dump the forum, make it a celebrity site or blog?
