Some desi papers may even run the ads for free in the community/religion sections so this may want to be explored. Thoughts?

Om Namah Sivaya

Vannakkam c.smith: Just to clarify on this ... There was no ad taken out on HDF's behalf in Hinduism Today. They have a regular 'Digital Dharma' feature or page dedicated to Hinduism on-line, and we as well as several others got a brief mention, as part of a larger article. That was it.

Hari Om!

Thanks for the correction.

Would it be wise to solicit other Hindu publications to do the same? Just a thought.

Hari Om!

Posted the above in haste.

Yes, I do believe that Satay is correct. And as yajvan has stated, there are some forum members postings that I miss. But overall the problem remains - how do we "attract" contributers that will add substantial contributions to the forum? Is word of mouth enough? Perhaps that's all we have for now?

Vannakkam: I wouldn't, personally. Ads may be through the roof. Hinduism Today isn't primarily a money maker. There are several 'Asian' or 'Desi' newspapers that run bits on religion, but their focus is different. It's news about India, and they usually include Bollywood news, lots of politics, etc. We have an excellent local one here called Asian Times. Its about 70% ads and is given away for free; the ads pay for it. I have approached them about a column I'm working on.

Other Hindu publications are usually concentrated on a particular organisation, like 'Back to Godhead' has been ISKCON's magazine now for a very long time. Their primary purpose is to promote ISKCON.

I think the best thing is word of mouth, or linking. Slow but sure, and it's not really necessary at all.

Re: Advertising

A Google search of "hindu dharma forums" and "hindu forums" brings up "guess-what?" as the first hit. It did and does for me. That's how I found HDF.
