You may want to figure out when your ideal candidates are most likely to be on. Do they search during work hours, or after? On weekends? Try to post during these times. If you still get buried, consider a sponsored post, or reposting your job from time to time.

If I want to post a job do I need to include a salary?
You don't have to, but it's recommended. Think about your ideal applicant. In this economy, it's likely they have a job already. You're asking them to take time out to apply and go through an interview process while leaving a big unknown out there. Pay can be a determining factor as to whether they can take the job at all.
If they don't know if they can take the job, they may be reluctant to apply. Also, nobody wants to go through the entire hiring process only to find out in the end that salary expectations aren't compatible. Best to get this out of the way at the beginning.
