Hi, I am just a newbie starting out building backlinks to my e-commerce site on which I also have a very useful blog for my niche. My strategy is to use Google to find Forums where my niche is being discussed and then answer various questions and put links to articles or pages of my website. I put the following string into Google Code: [FONT=arial]site:.co.uk "Powered by vBulletin" *mykeyword here[/FONT] On each Forum I submit 2-3 posts with no links so the moderators don't ban me, then a few days later I submit 1-2 posts with links. Is this method going to increase my Google rankings at all? How many Forums/Backlinks is it safe to do per day? I am doing it manually.
