    If your source of traffic to your website is forum spam.
    I mean high quality spam:
    Example: You write a tutorial on how to do something in a certain game, go to a forum about that game, post the link.
    IT will actually be a helpful post to the forum community.
    Does this affect the monetization of the site?
    Will google adsense have any problem with this?
    Will I have any problem with other ppc networks?
    Because my income will be affiliate products + ads
    Thanks

    There is no such thing as high quality SPAM. Either it's SPAM, which is shitty emailing, blast posting etc, or it is not.

    Yeah actually just read the definition of spam and it seems like this is not spam only little bit unethical for the forum communities.

    Over the years spam has gotten a reputation and association with monetization specifically, so for clarity here when you say forum spam ... you should be talking about crap posts that add little to no value, and that contain outbound links to your highly monetized content. There are plenty of GUIDES that would fit this description. On well established forums they would tend to result in your removal as a forum participant by mods.

    On the other hand, if you write highly useful guides full of information with minimally intrusive ads and almost never drop a monetized link - you should be fine and shouldn't consider that you'd be using forum spam. You'd actually be doing what you're supposed to.

    Nice replay.
    What do you mean by monetized link (like shorting urls?)
    Just for the sake of it here is example on what kind of posts I mean:
    And that leads to a simple site with useful information with no popups, "authority site"
