    How can i draw attention to my new forum?

    I have created a forum concerning sports, due to apparent censorship on an official site. Sound familar.

    I created it last night and I am the admin/membership/guests at the moment.

    Apart from going round the sports arena and telling people, (you are not allowed to hand out unauthorised advertising material). What can I do to ensure that it appears in peoples search engines to generate interest.

    The forum relates to Cricket, (nothing to see here).

    Here is a "how to" list for several search engines. You need to use tags that would lead people who search for "Cricket", and other terms to get your site listed in the search.

    Good luck, and I hope your site becomes the world's favorite Cricket forum.

    Cricket is the coolest game around.

    When we were in London, my son and I ducked into a sports pub just off Trafalgar Square for a beer. The locals were glued to a tv watching, of all things NASCAR. We sat down in front of a tv that had cricket on and the barkeep asked what we would like. After the order was taken he asked if we would explain NASCAR to them (don't know how he knew we weren't locals), we said sure if he would explain cricket. Loved to watch it since.

    Funny enough, I find cricket to be much more fun to watch than Baseball. But, that's because I'm a pinko commie or something.
