2. Start a forum

An active discussion forum may be all that you need toattract repeat visitors to your web site. You'll generallyget two types of visitors to your active forum. a) One whoseeks help and b) one who provides help. If your forum isactive with these two types of visitors, you can almostguarantee repeat (as well as new) visits for many times tocome.

3. Provide a free useful tool
