Need advise in promoting blogs on forums

9 replies
I've read that one way of promoting is through blog forums. Do they really work? Most of the forums in my niche don't even allow links to be posted. Any advice on where I can advertise my self-improvement blog?

    On this forum - and some others - you can pay $5 and put your site link in your signature. That will be visible every time you post on this forum.


    If must be YOUR site/ blog - not an affiliate link...but it's very effective advertising for $5. To see the options, click on 'user cp' and look on the left hand side of the page for 'subscribed threads'.


    If forums allowed members to join and post their site/blog links - there would be no forum - just a link farm.

    I am betting they're letting you give advice. And will let you link to one of your pages every now and again, provided there's a good reason.


    For instance, if you give good advice about repairing blue shoes and somewhere in your advice post you mention that you have an article on your site about how to repair polka-dotted skirts, they might let you link to it.



    And, since a lot of people who want to repair blue shoes want to repair polka-dotted skirts, you will get some visitors to that page.


    Promoting on forums is about helping forum members. Learn to help.

    I am with Kay King on this one. The main way of doing forum marketing at least on warrior forum is by paying $5 on here for a signature. Also, something I've learned is you should be active writing replies and posts etc. so you can unlock access to post in other threads.

    What kind of blogs are they? Reviews on products or simply things you can do for self improvement?

    Hi, I'm actually asking the same. We are looking for alternative way to promote our sports betting site and some told us that the best way to have link building is to promote using forums and blog in forums. Does it worth it, well our website is vodds is currently in process of off-page seo without spending to much. Could anyone direct me to a good discussion or any tips for link building. Thanks

    Read the SEO section - lots of link building and backlink threads there.

    Having been around for awhile, I will give you my 2 cents on this

    I've found that the fastest method to drive highly targeted traffic to a blog is to:

    1. Ensure that it has some good content in place
    2. Start approaching leaders in that industry and ask them if they like to guest post on your blog.
    3. You WILL find a few who will take you up on your offer.
    4. Once they post on your blog, a lot of their traffic will come with them as they will also post the link on their blog.


    Simple, but it has been a great strategy to start driving targeted traffic fast.

    Best of luck!

    It's not a bad idea. There you have to spend $5 and the benefit is your blog presence forever. By forum, you can also get a good lead and you can engage also a good volume of people. Thanks for your question.
