Some ways are:

Give a promo offer like free domains for 100 posts in a month / free 2MB or 5 MB hosting for all members who stay active

Develop some content like tutorials for hosting / pc trouble shooting / etc. List of useful tools and other free downloads etc

Generally make the forum of some to the members to stick around and maybe even invite their own friends etc.

Content. That's a very key method of promotion. Give your visitors a reason to come back by providing something else that the other sites in your niche do not.

Targeted Advertising. Advertise to targeted traffic such as perhaps Google Adwords or a banner ad with a related website.

Try doing as much as you can to optimize your forum for search engines. This includes the usual keywords, etc. Try also submitting to any directories that you can. It should help a little.

I've done a lot of the above in the first month of my forum and saw over 500 uniques just in the first month.

Even if you don't get any traffic or much through the directories, it would help in the way of links back to your site in the eyes of a search engine.

Exactly. I also forgot to include any sharing of links. Spiders look for links to your website and the more that there are and the higher their ranks, the higher your website will appear on the list. Works the same with directories.

Oh yeah, and don't forget this one, solfas...

Be sure to go around to various webmaster type sites and drop links to your own sites as much as possible. That will give you really good rankings.

Ask for reviews on umpteen of your sites but don't bother reviewing anyone else's site. Start lots of threads about me, ME, ME!!!!!! without offering diddly back to anyone else.

Yep, that's the ticket.
