SF is #1 ranked support site, plus Alexa ranking is very high.
This is a very successful forum.
Quite a big part of the members now are IMO a bit more advanced users. If the members we have today have found Win7 interesting enough to join the SevenForums, had some issues like migrating from XP, new features, removed features etc. and have been looking a place where they can find answers thus finding here, think what it is when the Seven is officially out and hits the public.
Like Antman said, the new users just need a small issue, question or piece of information to start googling or binging it and find almost always at least one SevenForums entry among the first 10 search results.
I would be very surprised if we didn't see an exponential growth. The SevenForums is, as we all know, the Ultimate Windows 7 Resource of the Internet.
