    Hey there.

    Basically, i was just wondering how good discussing your keyword in a forum is for SEO. Could anyone provide me with some tips/links/articles for posting in forums for SEO purposes?

    Thanks a lot! :)

    It's one of the best ways. Especially if the forum has some PR and is related to your keywords (of course). Blog commenting and forum posting will get you a long way + you get targeted traffic also!

    Forum links are slightly better than doing nothing at all.

    It's a good idea, just make sure to keep your posts looking natural and try to have more than just a few posts before link dropping to avoid getting flagged as a spammer.

    Forums are Ok for getting PR links. It's better if you target relevant forums, then you can also drive traffic if you write a useful, non-spammy comment.

    I can confirm they help but if used with your real accounts. And they dont work that good if you make accounts just for link building. You need a real, account.

    I agree and would like to add that you can also use links in signature spaces. This will also be helpful in increasing your online reputation.

    Forum comments can be the best kind of SEO - not only are you getting in-content links related to your niche, you will also get direct traffic.

    Hi,

    It is the right place where you will get relevant information related to your needs. Many of the websites receive a very high amount of traffic and are a huge opportunity for whatever niche your site may fall into. By making an effective signature link for each your posts, you can see an drastic increase in your backlinks and also traffic. This traffic is often highly targeted.The web forums can be used successfully to generate traffic to your website or blog which in turn can help to promote your business.
