How do I populate my new website with content?

I don't mind paying for a service if there is no EASY free way to do this. I need conversations from new users - dummy data that is based on news articles etc - so that my site does not look bald. Where can I get these conversations from legally?

I would use RSS feeds into the forums - maybe create "separate" accounts for the feeds... just an off the cuff suggestion.

You're not going to do your site any favors by populating it with garbage content or content taken from other sources. Having crap just to not have an empty site is a poor strategy. Having fake users posting crap is an even worse strategy. Search engines blacklist sites for those things now. If you really need content pay someone who isn't a complete idiot to write a handful of original things about your specific content.

How are you not banned? You insult my business plan from every angle and offer no solutions whatsoever. What are you even doing here? Of course I 'really need content'. Its a brand new website. Are you simple?

I did offer you a solution, the best solution, create original content or have someone who actually knows your subject write original content for you. If you dislike the solution offerred that's fine. Go ahead and steal content or have someone plagiarize it for you. See how far that goes. Good luck to you.

It doesn't sound like you're wishing me good luck. It sounds like you hate me.

By the way, for anyone creating a forum who doesn't want their website filled with posts written by the admin when you open the doors to let the public in, I have solved this problem entirely by editing the user and thread tables in the vbulletin database. For full instructions, go here:

Press Releases are open for everyone to grab and the distributors are grateful for it. Printing them is not plagiarism. Or you could hire In Omnibus to write articles for you that are filled with hate. Anyway, I'm betting 99% of you want content and members when you launch. Check the link.
