Get more traffic, participate in forums

In my last post I provided some information about link building. Continuing the same topic I am dedicating this post to same “link building”. As I discussed before link building or getting back links from websites plays a major role in getting google PR and good ranking thus obviously more traffic.

A good way to get quality traffic and also better links at pages with good PR and ranks is to participate in forums of your niche. Forums do not allow usually to anyone to post their links. You first need to be their registered user, that is free and then participate actively in them. Some forums have conditions to post your link as your signature or in threads are to stay as their active user for at least 7 days or post at least 50 posts in threads. Signatures are the best ways to keep your links go all over the forum and only active user that follow the guideline can add their signature in end of their posts. Always keep in mind to follow the guide lines of forums and post something useful in it. It’s not the way only to get better link but also provides new idea to write about and more over free of cost tips to get more visitors.

Here I am listing some forums where I participate actively. These forums have good PR and google ranks. These are according to my niche but you can find out forums of your niche by easily putting some search in search engines like seo forums, management forums etc.

Digitalpoint forum – This forum is fastest growing forum in SEO and having good Pr, google and alexa ranks. You have to be a active user for 7 days to be able to add your links in your signature.

V7N forum – This is one of the oldest forums and provides nice and informative stuff. It also has good Pr, google and alexa ranks. You need to post at least 50 post to be able to add your links in your signature.

SEOchat forum – This is a good forum for beginners in online world.

How to do link building

Link building is a important task to make your blog or website popular. It attracts users as well as search engine rankings for your blog or websites gets affected positively by this. Among many ways to increase your blog or website’s links on internet, one popular way is to submit your blog to different directories. I have already provided some lists of blog directories where you can submit your blog just for free.

One important thing to mark here is, how much link building should be done in a day. Submitting hundreds of links a day to directories is quite not a better thing. Search engines takes these as spams. Although some SEO people recommends to place 2-3 links per day, but it’s better to submit 10-20 links per day to directories, as directories never lists you at the time you submits your link. They take some time to list you and hence automatically making your 2-3 links adding itself per day.

In case of forums or blog comments you should take care of not to spam. Always write something relevant to the topic on forums and comment wisely on blogs. I hope these tips will help you in better link building.

How to do link marketing or link baiting

To To make popular any blog or website, it’s very important to go for some link popularity efforts. Now you may think, what is link popularity or link baiting. Google always loves those website or blogs, which gets more relevant links from other sites and preferably one way links. So the more will your links on other website, more will be your link popularity. Link baiting is thus the process of getting links on other websites and blogs for your blog or website.
Some of the methods for getting link popularity are:

  • Commenting on blogs
  • SMO
  • Sending Link requests
  • Contributing in Forums

A powerful way to get one-way backlinks is by posting comments on blogs and leaving your link in there. You don't want to spam the blogs though because most owners check on their comments these days. So post something valuable and then post up your anchor text link back to your site. Blogs that are relevant to your niche and website work best always. Same things continues with other methods also.
