Hi guys, new to the forums but not new e-commerce and IM. I've found this board much more informative that WF or DP so I will give back by bringing you this thread. As many of you know building backlinks from unrelated content is next to useless nowadays. A good way to build relevant back links is through the use of internet forums. Follow the steps below and you will easily build many relevant do follow back links throughout the web. 1. Research at least 30 forums that could in any way relate to your niche, sighn up and record your passwords and user names in an excel sheet. 2. Sighn up for a google account if you don't already have one and set up an Igoogle page to manage all of the new RSS feeds you will be generating. 3. Navigate to Google Alerts and enter the following without quotes "Example keyword site:URLofForum" So for example if your niche was cleaning paintball guns and one of the forums you sighned up to was examplesite you would enter the following without quotes "how to clean site:examplesite" 4. Change "Type" to Discussions 5. Change "How Often" to as-it-happens 6. Keep "Volume" on only the best (havnt experimented with this much yet) 7. Change the deliver to "feed" 8. Repeat for questions that people would normally ask about your niche going along with my example I would probably set up a feed for something like this for 1 of my 30 forums. "cleaning site:examplesite" "How to clean site:examplesite" "cleaning material site:examplesite" 8. Now do the exact same thing for the rest of the forums you sighed up to. 8. Add google reader to your Igoogle page 9. Add a link back to your website in your signature of each forum 10. Soon your Google reader window will start to be filled up with people asking questions about your niche, now it is your job to go on these forums and answer their questions, don't spam, contribute a real answer, the link in your signature will do the rest. 11. That's it, you can now build extremely relevant back links to your site MUCH easier that e-mailing webmasters (although you should still do this) and you wont have to search each individual fourm for questions to answer. Another benefit is that generally google alerts will only work for forums that are popular and indexed often, meaning the thread created on the forum itself has a good chance of being ranked by Google, providing even more eyes to your non spamming post and more clickthroughs to your site. If you liked this thread please send some rep my way! Feel free to ask questions I check this site often, I just don't post much.
