well you could get search engines to have your site. and have a lot of other people link to your site. that would boost the amount of people but idk what you'd want to add to have them come.

I would suggest doing some reading in the search engine boards here at OZZU. You will learn quite a bit there.

The best way to get good search engine traffic: clean code. Make sure your html is optimized as much as possible and you should be good to go. Don't forget to create unique page titles having to do with your content. Search engines also hit header tags (h1...h6) pretty hard, so be sure to give your page good titles and put all headers in headers. Avoid tables. Avoid frames. Use css for positioning to put your content above your navigation. That'll help a lot too.

What kind of actual programs are you looking for? Forums? Classifieds?

Strange no-one has suggested <b>useful content</b>

Whether it be galleries of cool graphics, more tutorials, whatever. Something to generate interest. Something that people can use or can enjoy.

Once you get interesting/useful stuff on your site, people will start linking to you without you even asking.

content = visitors = links = SERPS = more visitors and guess where you are now!

and if you didn't catch that: Marketing.

Search engine optimization is the catchall phrase that means pretty much what people have said above. You clean you code, put in relavent content, add proper meta tags, then reoptimize you content to be more search engine friendly... optimize filenames, for example: if you have a page on world hunger, all else being equal, a file called worldhunger.html or world_hunger.html will get fewer SE hits than one called world-hunger.html because search engines index the dash character as a space, which means when someone searches for "World Hunger" the relavence will be higher for world-hunger.

The next step is spending some money. Buy keywords to increase your ranking... this can be a little or a lot of money, but the more you spend, in general, the better you will do. Internet Marketing has a high ROI, but if you don't have money to invest initially, sometimes that doesn't mean anything...
