    does creating accounts on forums and social media sites with your website or email in the username (or as the username) really work? I mean, do people go, "oh hey, this guy's name is a website.. I better check it out.."

    I'm sure it will drive a bit of traffic but it is probably insignificant. I think it looks bad on the website - just plugging wherever they possibly can. I would prefer having a normal user and not look like every post is an attempt at self promotion. Just my thoughts though.
