    I'm wondering how some forums couldn't have a quite a lot of value. I know of a LOT of good forums who's mods and community keep a STRICT eye on spammers. Wouldn't subject related backlinks on forums like that be held in a fairly high value? Plus linking done in those forums are ALWAYS relevant, and should indicate what real people are talking about. Seems that forums might be getting overlooked simply because the value of ones that don't police themselves is so low.

    What do you think?

    Forum posts ARE great, it's just a matter of making them in forums that are not over spammed and have the comments seem genuine so they stick.

    I guess there are several ways. Both with XRumer.

    1. Use XRumers function to collect relevant replies and post the reply. After 1 month come back and edit the post and add your link. Works pretty well with high stick-rate.

    2. Write a generic comment, come back in 1 month, edit the post and add your link.

    3. Post a good introduction post in the introduction part of the forum with your link in the signature. The stick-rate isn't that good, and if it's good, it's usually in spammed forums...

    Good luck!

    Question. Do sig's help? Or are those viewable by Google as different than post links?
