Here are some of them that I would like to share

1. Make use of the signature of the forums in the same niche as it gives benefit of getting some very good targeted visitors as well as conversion to user ratio is also good
2. Get yourself some good content which people would love to interact and post on.
3. Forums would never become famous overnight and so be patience.

Yes, I see, thanks! You know the situation is the following I have some ammount of traffic now, but still have no registered users! The most difficult problem for me is to convert website visitors into registered forum users!

Thats true for any new website and instead of focusing on growing users focus on growing content and users would end up eventually

What is your forum related to? Is it a personal forum or a niche related?
