My Site - Need Opinions


Hey. I recently used my web hosting on some gaming forums, http://www.EliteGamer.org. I was wondering what you guys think; Are Game Forums still have potential in the Internet World.
Also, I was wondering, How I could get more members(I know advertising, but how/where are advertising places)
- Thanks

You could try using Google Adwords.

Depends. There are forums that are very popular, but most only have a small core audience that follow them. I don't really see forums as being lucritive in the long run.

I have an idea - if you have space and the bandwidth, offer a free 2mb hosting option for every user that signs up - furthr more, to make money, put adverts on their pages. You can get quite decent web hosting software - if you are on linux all PHP is free.

May be it's a good idea, but mention that free hosting also needs promotion

Site looks good.&nbsp; Why are gaming forums always so dark though.&nbsp; Anyway....you might want to consider some sort having some tournament that the eventual winner get some sort of prize.&nbsp; Maybe the tournament doesnt happen until you have a certain amount of gamers.&nbsp; Hopefully, the community invites others to the forum in an effort to hit that # so the toury can begin.&nbsp;

Google is where you want to be when it is all said in done.&nbsp; You will generate a ton of traffic if you can find yourself in the top page under "gaming forums".&nbsp; Get there and you will have your traffic.

I'm lucky in the fact that she points out women to me, of course if I try to touch one of them, then I'll become Mr. Bobbit..
