Hi I'm no stranger to help forums. IMHO the way a help forum grows is by having great answers to PC problems. These get picked up by Google.
If Google thinks your answer is good, you get top billing and your thread will be in the top 10 answers. I don't see any robots on this forum?? They can help advertise a forum!! Another good thing is to have a name that people will Google. Computerforum is a good name IMHO
. If you have good answers and are user friendly, the forum will grow. If you look around, you will see that all the help forums are down on activity. I don't know why except W7 is more stable. We'll have to wait and see if W10 can do the same, once the bugs are out.
What do you think makes a forum grow??
Here Computerforums got second billing! That's pretty good!
