    Wow, you trash your own product? You mean with different account?

    In general - you first write 2 or 3 posts without a link and then make a post with link inside?

    He is smart. Bashing own product to make link stick because people won't realize that is his product/page/website.

    I guess, adding the word free changes everything , even the mindset of other members instead of reporting the product they start to promote it. I at start use 3-4 accounts in same forum to increase the engagement. And then move ahead with one that gets great response.

    I may have missed it but do any of these forum links produce direct traffic?

    About the trashing your own product bit. Maybe mix this up to have some positive feedback on your own web link. I have some great forum links that send excellent referral traffic to one of my sites that convert into sales.
    Anyway, best of luck!

    Update:

    Page 1 for 2 keywords achieved in under 25 days. Every free trial will get me $3. They don't require their credit card, just the email address and home address.

    So it's an awesome offer. Just waiting for the sales to pour in.

    #3 site on the serp is mine and the keywords get me around $600 per month. Pretty good income imo.

    With this I can say:

    Get forum links they work well :)

    True af :p

    Welcome
    Follow it ;)

    Yup. Or edit the approved comment :p

    Yup. Exactly.

    Awesome :)

    Thanks

    Yeah there's traffic. 3-4 people a day. Nothing can compare to organic traffic though.

    Yup. I mix it up ;)

    Mostly thrashing works as they also register to get the product from the company and state their views.

    Ofcourse they work. Even if they're nofollow, it doesn't make sense that Google will just ignore such authority, active and moderated forums just because they're nofollow.
    Great case study!

    Very nice results so far! Those 3 bucks for free trial - they are for just US traffic only? Or tier 1 countries or even worldwide (doubt it)?

    Thanks

    One question, do you select forums after checking their metrics like DA, DR, TF or you directly pick them.
    Also, are you building tier 2 to forum links

    My ahrefs tool bar is almost active all the time. So I do check if the site has some keyword traffic or not and most sites have good DR. 20 TO 70.

    I don't make tier 2 links to the forum links.

    In case if they are nofollow, you will still get the boost in DA/PA.
