I'm the GM of a smallish raiding guild, and everyone we've ever recruited has come to us through pugging in trade chat. Sometimes we get jerks, sometimes we get hilariously memorable jerks, but sometimes we get solid people who know their stuff and like our vibe. If we have an open slot and the pug is interested, we ask them to come back to a few more raids to make sure they're consistent and serious. We've found some amazing people that way and it's a lot less stressful than other methods of recruiting.

I was going to comment and say the exact same thing as Moorit.For small guilds, set up consistent raid times, get your guilded core together, and pick up some PuGs to do raids with. Just make sure to vet your PuGs through a site like wow-heroes so that you can have realistic goals about what content you can down.My guild is also a small-population guild and 4 of our current members, including one of my most trusted officers came from leading successful raids with a few non-guilded members.
