After running a Google Ad campaign, I feel like it didn't get any new users to join up and participate.
I have been going to other like sites and participating and slowly building links (trying not to be spammy), I have found a lot of my posts on my site can answer questions people ask on Reddit and have had some success answering questions with links. This has slowly built up the number of searches Seek Adventure has been appearing in.
Since I personally don't click on many Ads on Google myself after searching, I decided to dump that path and try Facebook Ads and create a Facebook page where I will post interesting discussions going on in my Flarum.
I find I click on many more Facebook ads than Google Ads and I think The Facebook ads will better showcase my Photography skills and at least catch some new users eyes while they browse Facebook. RIght now I am just trying a one day "Boosted Post" for $20. Will let you all know how it goes.
You can check out my first Boosted post on my page here: https://www.facebook.com/SeekAdventure
