My advice, always use niches and specialized forums to "own a word". E.g. users visiting your website stormy.whatsoever will have a windpark in mind. General forums do not really work, due to the lack of a "word".

I have created a specialized forum and filled it with 100 - 200 maths questions 4 years ago, questions that I before answered by email. Google picked them up and students started to find me. Now I have 20-25k visitors per day and about 65k questions and 83k answers.

On the other hand, I started a *general* q&a forum. I paid for the writers, I made donation games (I paid 0,50 € per incoming question). I gave out rewards etc. It just did not work out. Even though I have about 5k answers of quality content. This is actually quite depressing.

So, again. Be specialized and own a word!

Hope that helps.

Wow! Thanks for your response. I would now try to own a word now! Thanks once again.
Can I see the url?
