On registering, try to include your URL and a brief description of your website in your signature. If you make regular posts on forums, and change signatures every once in a while to reflect what’s going on at your website, you will have a steady stream of visitors.
For example, an example signature could be ‘Catland.com – ‘How to make cats happy’ article just posted 12/34/04’.

If you can create an article to answer each of these questions, you can always post link to your article everytime a newbie asks question. This will drive fresh users to your website and once your website has in great content; will ensure repeat user and more web traffic.
