    I read the meathead1234 thread about forum marketing http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs.html

    I have tried two niches now for a week. First has been self-improvement and the second on dating. I have answered a lot of Yahoo Q&A, forums etc but gotten really lousy traffic to my site, like 5 visits/day and none have bought anything. I make all the posts personal and not sailsmanlike, put the link in my signature. My site is also pretty nice looking.

    Am I in the wrong niche or what could I do more/differently to get traffic and sales. It's pretty boring shuffling all the forums to get no results..

    Thank you! If I should add some extra info or details then ask.

    patients,get more social,rinse&repeat,learn ppc etc., SEO,traffic,YT maybe, keep trying
    IM is as hard as offline Business, it doesn't run just because there is a random site. you got to approach to your customers
    just outsource the forum more and more

    A few years ago i was making decent money on 'Credit and 'Finance' sections of Yahoo Answers promoting loan/credit offers. Not sure if those sections are still on there? If they are, maybe worth a go :)
