    Is Forum posting really good for promotion .Is it effective in bringing traffic to your website. And If Yes then shouldn?t I build a forum site for that particular niche if possible. And after building Forum how do you initiate new members to your forum. Do you promote it like a website or there are certain other strategies?

    Forum posting for SEO purposes is a little dated and shouldn't be done unless it's part of a broader strategy with many different types of platforms and links. For the purposes of increasing traffic to your sites however it can be pretty beneficial especially if done manually in niche related boards and discussions.
    Yes hosting your own forums would be good as you could submit to them as often as you want and without having to deal with moderation, driving new members to your forum is slow going though and cannot be done without ALOT of unique handwritten content and in a niche you have some knowledge in. Better off building a private blog network in my opinion.

    forum posting depends upon niche.
    if your visitors are going to be come again and again then yes.

    but if it's a one time visitor niche then not so good.
