Using forums for SEO?
« on: November 15, 2011, 09:21:15 AM »
Hello - thanks in advance for your help!   



How can I use forums for SEO and/or building inbound links?

What kind of forums should I be posting in? And am I supposed to include my website in my signature when I post?

Thanks for your help.

You are already using forums for link building.

Well, You should look at forums related yo your niche. Check if its offer dofollow signature link.

If you found dofollow signature than participate in that forum and set your signature with keyword on link.

It is very simple.

Forum is the best way where website users comes and do discussion on particular topic for any business, product, or service.

In Forum websites they allow you to put signature which will be display below your post, you can use your targeted keyword with website link in your signature so that you can get back link from the forum websites.

You can get benefit from forums by involving in genuine discussion which is related to your business topic which gives you relevant back link from forum websites.

Since its quite daunting to find dofollow forums, you may go for nofollow as well (dofollow will remain a priority ofcourse).

Although I prefer a tool Keyword Country to help me dig niche related dofollow forums easily.

Posting quality answers in nofollow forums will add to your credibility and give you referral traffic which is equally important as SERP’s.

Describe your images with the use of the alt tag. This will help search engines that index images to find your pages and will also help readers who use text only web browsers.

Forum is one of the best activity in offpage SEO. There are lots of relevant forum available on internet so if you get backlinks from those forums then it is much better than other links. Also you can drive relevant traffic to your site from other sites.

Some webmasters and moderators choose to remove and restrict such advertising efforts. You will need to put your point across in an unhurried and logical manner, such that your product or service is seen as meeting a need that is particularly relevant to that discussion thread or problem.

Instead,  once you've become a true contributing member to the community and you've written something interesting in a post, some members or readers of that community who have their own sites, visit the url in your sig, and then decide to place a link to your site from  theirs.

The most common link building techniques using forums are to create a profile page and a signature link. Signature links allow links to be created at the bottom of posts or comments you leave in a forum. Signature links are at best very low quality and although they may send you some traffic are unlikely to have any long lasting impact on the pages you link to. This is because these links are not merit based, as is the case with all link spam methods, and it's accepted the search engines are getting better at ignoring these links and assigning them no value.
