You can make money with forums. The hidden element that search engines feed upon is forums. You can be part of an internet strong hold, when you submit. Your comments and articles can actively serve as food to millions of searches. Inquisitive prospects constantly make searches for all sorts of things. It’s not difficult to submit to hundreds, when you use an organized plan. The idea here is to create a data base. Your data will be your list of active forum’s . First become a member. Become a member of forums you have interest in. This way it will be easy to make comments on things you care about. Becoming a member of forums is somewhat like owning shares in cyber real estate. I consider them a small pieces of cyber space. Most of them use the same format. This makes it a easy to fill in the fields as rapidly as possible.
Having your own website is useful. You can direct forum participants to your website or affiliate link. That whole process is some what a soft sale. You may ask “how do I get viewers to go to my website or affiliate link?” Here’s how. Forums and email usually allow what is known as a “signature line.” This is where members, when posting or making comments, put their link. You’ll typically see an article and at the bottom there’ll be one or two short lines of text that are actually links leading to what ever the writer is promoting. A percentage of viewers will read your article or comment. Another percentage of readers will click your link ,out of curiosity. This may sound far fetched, if you are not accustom to the concept however, signature links have proven their value consistently. Forum signatures get clicks. Signature clicks are so powerful that forum owners regard them as a privilege, to forum members. Some forum owners protect and guard that privilege carefully.
It’s a privilege indeed to have a signature link. Owner or managers are usually called “moderators .” A moderator will usually monitor a forum participation. Some moderators will allow you to have a signature link only if you post, at least 10 or more relevant comments. Other moderators don’t care and will allow participants to have a signature link immediately, after registration. The said purpose of restricting signatures is to control spam. Your forum marketing mission is to constantly make “relevant” comments and submit to at least 500 forums. This will get you an enormous amount of traffic as well as build back links, to you that stay up on the web for years. The back links will ultimately give you a higher rating on search engines. A high score on search engines combined with your link being viewable to thousands, perhaps millions of forum members is a great reason to get involved. You can start with two or three forums. Then eventually expand to hundreds and beyond. Remember relevancy is important, when you post. Make sure your comments and posts are relevant to what the forum topic is. Do not post irrelevant material because you will be banned. Forum members especially moderators are sensitive .
