    - Ask a friend to place URL on Stumble Upon, Digg, etc
    - Join and post to Yahoo Groups or Google Groups

    Hi there,

    I like your forum. I'll let my hubby know about it because he belongs to a lot of auto forums. Word of mouth may help.

    You could try creating articles within your forum, and then linking to those articles via digg.com to give your search rankings a boost.

    In the begging you will have to personally answer lots of the questions since there is no one else around to do so.

    Namaste
