Just wanted to get a feel as to how people found this site. I'm trying to make the community grow, and have tried several things to make that happen. So, I'd just like to get some feedback to see which of those things were the most effective.

Also - to prevent any confusion - A google ad can either appear on google itself or on any page that google advertises on. It will usually look something like this:

Evo X Forums
2008 Misubishi Lancer / Evo X info

A google (or any other search engine result) will look just like any other search result when you search for certain keywords.

Also, if you can recall which key words you entered, that would help too. :)

You got bumped from google... someone is willing to pay a higher dollar.
Not quite.

The way it works is that the more you pay (relative to those who are competing with you for a given keyword) the more likely your ad is to be displayed.

I just checked, and it was displayed on the right when I googled for 'evo x'.

Right now, it may pop up 1 in 3 times. If I paid more, it would be displayed more often.

Gotta start small though, I can't go too nuts with the ads until we're big enough to get sponsors or something to help foot the bill.
