    You can use paid traffic of course. PPV and banner ads are pretty cheap.

    2) you can use free socialmedia traffic.
    Start a free business group
    + post content grabbed from the forum
    + post the links to your forum
    + invite people to your group ( they see your forum too)

    Be the first to comment on related blog posts, which will bring in the most traffic.
    Create some fake accounts and talk to yourself to make the forum look active.
    Use social media to promote everything.

    No they don’t. They didn’t even work when the post was written.

    Maybe check out using hashtags on topics programmers are discussing but have your Forum link attached to your profile. A lot of good ideas so far.

    and once you've started posting your free themes and whatnote- send it out on a PR site - use keywords to trigger search algorithms to help 'promote' your site- try to find a good PR site but it will cost too.

    If you want more traffic to your blog then you must use backlink and you must promote your blog on other sites so that you may enhance reach of your content .

    Nope. That’s not how it works. Try reading the whole thread.

    Write something useful to make your user click on your links to the main content.

    I'd recommend listening to this SEO expert interview.

    There's a lot of other good info there from someone who's making 7 figures to listen to other than DA.

    He makes seven figures from selling his courses.

    I struggled through the whole interview and there isn't anything new that hasn't already been said many times before.

    Maybe there's nothing new in there for you, and that's okay, but perhaps there is for the poster who asked the question. That's who the response was geared towards. Not to mention the interviewee makes 7 figures because what he's telling people works. You don't get the kind of traffic to a blog he has gotten if you're not doing something right. If you heard the whole interview he also created a software program (Rank IQ) that helps people with this and if it didn't help people, he wouldn't be in business because it would have been revealed as a scam long before hitting 7 figures.

    I suspect a lot of his income comes from sales of his blogging tool. 20,000 sales per year will earn 7 figures. A lot of those will be repeat customers which means he only needs a few signs up each day to keep the new money rolling in.

    I noticed that joining and commenting on forums with similar interests can significantly increase your user base - only don't start spamming.
