    I have a forum that is very very small. How do I get people to visit it?

    You have posted in the article section and I have moved it to the right section.
    Can you put the url to your forum so that we can have a look but look for some general [thread=7]promotion tips[/thread].

    Forums are really difficult to promote and the most important factor in it should be
    1. Constantly build up the content.
    2. Ask your friends to get involved and make the forum look active.
    3. Organize some contests.
    4. Exchange posts with some other forums members.
    5. Get some good relevant links.

    The first thing you should be doing is have some category and have people to interact.

    When I visited the forum I saw only a section called Guests. If I want to add some topics where should I be doing that.

    There are 2 disadvantages of it
    If I dont see any topics I will not register and login.
    Bots will not see any of your topics and you will never rank well in search engines.

    Maybe there should be more gust stuff? Maybe I should spam up the guest stuff so bots will rank me better?

    Guest stuff can always be more but the spam will not rank well. The ranking content is always the quality one.

    You mentioned to spam the guest section with more content but that will not be helping much. Go for good quality articles.

    Go through some of the articles from the following sections
    Search Engine
    Promotion techniques
