    I've heard someone say that they hired out someone to write a bunch of posts on forums in their niche & then they logged in to add their link. I don't really understand that process.

    1. Why wouldn't they have the person just add their link when they were posting?
    2. Did they mean link in the post, or just in the signature?
    3. Don't most forums have a 25 post limit before you can place links?
    4. Do you think this is a worthwhile strategy?
    5. Have you tried forum linkbuilding in general? How effective was it? What is your strategy?
