    Yea tons of people offer SEO services, if you don't have time, then pay someone who knows what they are doing.

    Standard newbie mistake... starting with a forum. I'm going to have to say, out of the hundreds of success stories on this forum, not 1 of them was because they started with a forum. I don't get it. People already tell you what works, but you still miss the point. Hats off to you. ;)

    First of all, I think you should focus your SEO effort on a niche that a- you are very passionate and exited about, and b- one that isn't too saturated with other competition, anc c- one that is currently on a trending "hotlist".

    Concentrate on your on-site SEO first with content that has:


    • The appropriate keyword-to-content ratio
    • Make sure that the navigation is easy to use for the user (breadcrumbs are very useful here)
    • Provide an xml sitemap to help indexation of your web pages
    • Make sure the colour scheme is appropriate for your niche and target market.
    • DONT bombard people with popups and affiliate banners
    • Make sure you organise placement of your Adsense ads in such a way that people won't think you have made the site just for monetisation via ads
    • Use correct grammar according to your native language you're using
    • Make sure you're not hosting your site with a host that has alot of spammy websites about viagra/pharma/hyips etc
    • Host your website with a provider that doesn't have too many other website's on the same I.P (I happened to read this in another thread earlier).
    Then once you have got those things done, you can start submitting your site to search engines, rss feed aggregators, web directories etc and submit the site to various bookmarking sites and social networks. I recommend taking the White Hat approach for a relatively new site for the first, say, 3 months... Make sure you build a good reputation with Google (and I suppose Yahoo and Bing as well). Then if you choose you can start little bits of Black Hat SEO techniques (I'm going to put this in capitals as I want to make this very clear... DONT OVERDO AND/OR OVERUSE BLACKHAT SEO TECHNIQUES!). If you use too much BH SEO too early your site could be blacklisted from the search engines before it has even started to gain some traction...

    I hope the above helps you somewhat... This is from my own experience and my opinions may differ from others on here, but any way good luck with your aite and who knows you might sell your site for $15 million like what as mentioned on some other thread on here :).

    Yeah, macdonjo said it perfectly. Based on what I've read, forums are more difficult to monetize (as oppose to big niche sites and such). Plus, getting them off the ground can be fairly difficult.
