I joined stackoverflow.com because I kept seeing relatively good question/responses showing up in Google searches.
What I am asking, is does anyone know/remember how they first got into this site (at the start). Was it google, advertisement, announcement at a conference, friend referral?
people have to find it first
How did stackoverflow.com get enough good quality content to draw quality question posters to the site? Did they ask alot of questions themselves? If it didn't create much content, how was the site's functionality good enough to draw question posters to it?
This site is a true Whitehat SEO site, IMO. I am just wondering what tricks they used to become popular so fast. (Besides so many posts that they have now)
