    Would you mind sharing a link to the site with us Chubby?

    What have you been doing to promote the site to date?

    Site actually doesn't exist yet. But the niche would be what I mentioned so PC,hardware,software. The most interesting for me is how Stackowerflow was able to get such a huge number of visitors to contribute .

    Chubby the first step would be to ensure that your site is as helpful and as user-friendly as possible, that way your visitors will want to come back to it and they will be more likely to spread the word by telling your friends about it. You could also promote it by some of the traditional method such as your signature link on related forums, blog comments and through forum promotion sites such as the one in my signature.

    The previous discussions listed below will also include some helpful tips for you;

    if it has tons of users that answers really good about the asked questions then i think it wouldn't be that hard to promote that kind of site.
    maybe it will attract people who answers questions in yahoo answers. posting your best answered question link to the same question in yahoo answers might work.
