    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.

    What will I do with increased DA/PA? I want increase in traffic that's all :)

    Maybe if I was selling guest posts, then I would increase my DA coz people are consider these metrics before buying a guest post.

    Thanks.

    Thank ;) pushed to page 2 though

    Nope.
    Ahrefs only.

    Seems this is a HIT?
    Some questions if i may?


    1. Do you manually comment different comments, with a link in profile or in the comment itself?
    2. Are you using any indexer or awaiting google to index themselves?
    3. You scrape using scrapebox first then filter out using ahrefs? or directly scrape using ahrefs > sort by DA.
    4. How long do you think your rankings will stay without building more links?


    Thanks in advance

    Second point is the reason behind this. Also sometimes its about where you place the nofollow link. If it is within the post, it is good and if someone getting it from WordPress comment author, its almost useless (except increasing DA/PA).

    It seems OP is busy with other stuff now... Hope you will answer questions later...

    Do you register at forums with same name and email or with different ones?

    They are already indexed and get recrawled from time to time.
    1) I mostly put links in comments.
    2) if a link doesn't get indexed naturally in 2 weeks, I run through my indexer
    3) scrapebox + ahrefs works best for me
    4) staying till now! The ranks will go down if some links are deleted.

    No worries.

    This case study is done for :)
    Not same name. I use same emails for these though :)

    These are the rankings: I can say that they are holding up fine. Will send a guest post or 2 to get into top 5s.

    Hi, any chance you could share how do you use scrapebox to find forums? Also, I am interested in filtering those forums by language or domain ending (ex. .es or .fr) Thanks for you help.

    Old thread but I got a tip for everyone, I have an older website that I exclusively ranked all keywords through 100% relevant forum posts.

    I would suggest to google questions related to your niche and try to see if you can post on the threads rankings on 1st page for these questions, this gave me huge boost in rankings due to relevancy and at the time the site was making 30-50$ from forum posts alone with no other SEO done and relatively new domain.

    (It was a small niche targetting keywords with only 200-1.5k MS so easy to rank, still good enough for the constant 30-50$ per day which is pretty good I'd say from free backlinking sources)


    PS: You will get banned really often for triggering old threads just to add a link, I would suggest replying to a normal thread and see for how long you can edit your posts, if it allows you to edit your posts at any time or within 24 hours or something, keep it in mind and go back to your post before the timer passes and add the link. Most mods immediately ban you if you have links straight away in a dead thread, especially if its a new account.

    Great tip. I will definitely use it. I was trying forum backlinks myself. But most of my posts got deleted quite fast. Even when I tried to post a few "real" posts before creating the backlink.

    I know that my situation might be different than yours. But can you say how many links did it required per article to rank on the first page?
    Also how many links were you dropping per day?

    the hardest keyword made me up to 80$ per day ranked from forum links only 100% relevant, these forum links were actually ranking top 1-3 for my keywords so you see how easy the keyword was. I got links from like 10 of them and it ranked #1 after a month

    Top5 and started to make sales :) Good enough relevancy and power from forum links. I will be doing in a different niche too where link building is difficult.

    Yeah, you can see above.

    Great
    Awesome tip and yes, you can get banned.


    Let us know how it goes :)
