Get Other Link To Your Website: Forums & News Groups

June 6, 2011
One of the things that make the Internet great is communities. Forums and groups are a great way for people to get together online and talk about any subject. So being active in forums and groups related to your niche can gives you more points of gaining more traffic.
But be careful to use good Netiquette when posting or participating in forums and groups. Don’t spam the boards with promotions or self-serving content. Just focus on being helpful and making positive contributions. If you are planning to market your website subtly through forums and groups here are a few tips:
  • Use your website name as your handle (if possible).
  • Create a detailed profile that includes your website address.
So by making good contributions and being credible, you may get a few unsolicited links back to your site from other forum members.

Now as you can see, building quality links back to your site is no easy task. It takes a lot of work and dedication. However, inbound links are the single most important factor that search engines use to rank websites. The more quality, topic-focused inbound links you have, the higher you will rank.
