All internet businesses are concerned about drawing more traffic to their websites. They want their sites to be famous, and their name to be out there. If you have also tried doing that, then you must have heard about back links.
Back links are the links that you leave on other websites or blogs, and they point towards your website. They are one of the best ways to draw traffic to your site.
Talking about back links, there are many ways by which you can build them. One of the most famous ways to build back links is forum posting.
Forums are a great way to exchange information and share knowledge. When you join a forum, you can start your own thread, or reply to someone else’s threads. Now, you can put a link to your website in your signature. When you post something on a forum, your signature comes at the bottom of your post.
This little hyperlink will point back to your website, and will serve the dual purpose of directing the readers to your website, as well as building up your page rank. When you do forum posting, you also build the credibility of your website. This is because if your posts are informative and to-the-point, then people will start to know you as a knowledgeable person and thus will get attracted towards your website. But you need to take care that your posts should not be just for the purpose of advertising. If you join a forum merely for advertisement purposes, the moderators will delete your posts, and suspend your account. More than that, people will get irritated by your posts, and they will actually drift away from your website, thereby leaving a negative effect.
Here is how you can make your signature:
“Your company name”, “product”, and “url”. Make sure that it is short and sweet- under 10 words is your best bet. You can even do hyper linking instead of posting direct URL there.
When you post your answers, make sure you are polite, respectful, and friendly. Bad postings will mean a bad reputation and thus harm for your website.
