      Yeah, there are still lots of forum sites that allow the links as dofollow. But to get this you have to work there with some kinds of knowledge and to be patience and at one point not only get quality dofollow links but also receive a good numbers of traffic to your site. Beside this activities, if you try you will find many other option of getting quality backlinks for your site. Guest post or blog posts good one of them. You can also engage in social networking sites to share your content and even sometimes you can good dofollow links there doing bookmarking.

      No.

      Most forum pages have no juice to give.
      To have juice, they'd have to have some good backlinks. Most forum pages do not have that.

      Forums help if you post content so good, people feel compelled to click on your link, be so impressed with what they find that they link to it from one of their website pages or mention your site to all and subdry and one of the all and sundry links to you or buys.

      Or they do not link or talk about your site but buy whatever you are selling.

    Honestly, they are great for traffic if you have something that is very targeted for that particular forum or thread but any links you place on forums are pretty worthless for SEO. Forums, blogs, social bookmarking, Web 2.0 ... anyplace where you can place a link, yourself, without someone else having to do it, is a link that is NOT going to help your SEO.

    The backlinks you typically get from forums are NO FOLLOW - ie., no SEO value

    You're better of generating CITATIONS and BRAND MENTIONS

    Those impact SEO as well

    However, you have to KNOW how to create them the right way

    Otherwise, Big G might just think you're spamming

    Forums are the online discussion sites where people gather to converse, that's focussed on a single industry or niche and where you can participate in the conversation via a forum membership. You can get the do-follow links from the forum by finding the industry related forums to post on that means a forum should be focused on your industry, a forum containing a subforum focusing on your industry and start contributing on these forums because Google will give backlinks benefits on the basis on relevancy.
    There are a lot of benefits on being active on forums besides earing do follow links such as your brand identity will build, you will gain more authority in your niche, build the valuable relationship, you will get to know what is important for your target audience, and you can also find their content ideas.

    Yes, it's a link, but it won't help your SEO much. That being said, forum comments are a great way to get more traffic to your website, as long as the forum is relevant to the niche of your website. For example, leaving comments on a gardening forum and sending them to your make money online blog would be a waste of time.

    Optimize your profile in forums, and include all of your social media accounts. When you post stellar content, blogs, and articles be sure to notify your subscribers and followers.

    Your activity in niche-relevant and well-regarded forums (such as the Warrior Forum ) can generate a frenzy of highly targeted traffic to your posts and websites.

    In my not so humble opinion, backlinks are relatively insignificant, compared to real live engaged readers. Content, not backlinks, has always been the secret sauce for driving massive convertible traffic.

    Nothing but forum can be the best to do backlink for your website. If you are really looking for organic traffic for your website, then forum will be best.
    First of all, you need find forum/channel which is at least 80% related with your service/product/website. Then you can make some quality backlink with valuable and perfect information for your website or landing page. Make sure, you are not violating their terms and not doing any spam things. Thanks!

    Yes participating on forums is an excellent way to drive some relevant traffic to your website. It's just the matter of posting on the right forums which will also build brand recognition for your company.

    In the recent past a lot of active members have stopped posting on forums and asking for help like I remember it used to be a few years back, may be because of too much spam and irrelevant posts.

    Here are the basic parameters that help you to get backlink from froum. These is one of the

    1. Relevance/Niche/Audience

    Find the most relevant forums for your business niche where your target audience resides.

    2. Quality/Authority

    Shortlist the most authoritative forums based on the quality content and audience base. You certainly can't spend your efforts on forums which don't have high domain authority, links from such forum don't have any weight.

    3. Guidelines/Code of conduct

    Read and understand the rules of each forum before creating your profile and start posting a post just for the sake of getting a link-back. Many times same forum has different set of rules for individual forum categories as well. These guidelines play a major role in the process of getting backlinks.

    If the forum is active, having link in your signature helps you in two ways, first of all, Its possible that other members visit your website and it could bring traffic to your website and second of all, if you could have a link as signature below your posts, it could increase the number of your backlinks especially if the links are dofollow. But keep in mind that you must have post quality posts because as forum admins want to keep the quality of their forum high, they delete users with low quality posts and in my opinion they do the right thing.

    Backlink building is an old school technique in SEO. Earning backlink is the correct way of doing things. One must understand and follow the content guidelines of forums. Try to add value to the discussions, not just spam links. Prefer starting new discussions so the relevancy will be maximum.

    In some early stage of SEO, Many of us had put a signature along with keyword that was hyperlinked. But it was treated as a spammy link building after the penguin 3 update was rolled out.
    Nowadays earning backlinks are fore most important than just building backlinks. Put a signature with link only where it make sense. Otherwise you do not use it.
    Get backlinks and referral traffics naturally by adding a source to your article where people asked questions related to your niche. Hope I'm answered and you understand this.

  • No doubt forums are a great source of back links but most of them gives you no-follow links. Its for diverting a traffic to your website.

    This depends as some forums have all of their outbound links set to "nofollow", which mean they pass little to no SEO value. Quite a few are "dofollow" which means relevant forum participation that leads to a backlink to your website will help in terms of SEO value. Forum participation in general is a good practice if you can find quality forums for your industry and niche, I would just not overdue it with pointing links back to your site, unless it is 100% relevant and beneficial to the forum.

    Gain backlinks by giving of your time, energy and talents.

    Help people by answering their questions thoroughly.

    Example; you read my response, like what I say and click my sig link. I drive traffic to my blog.

    Be generous, thorough but detached. See yourself driving traffic through forums. Keep things positive. Keep things high energy.

    Be helpful. If someone asks a question, and you know the answer, answer it.

    Backlinks flow to bloggers who answer questions accurately and generously on forums. People click your sig link if you give them a reason to click your sig link. Give them the reason by being helpful, thorough and generous in answering questions.

    Focus not on a specific word count but do know; going just a little more in depth than the average poster on forums boosts your back links.

    I was checking my Domain Authority recently. I noticed some Warrior Forum links and traffic among my links. On digging deeper, these usually are the posts I feel detached about, where I answer the question with no particular outcome in mind. Said answers tend to be longer, beefier, more in depth.

    Of course I know my stuff and share accurate, correct answers; I am the Blogging From Paradise guy. But if you have not my experience, surround yourself only with the top bloggers in your niche. Learn from them, Acquire knowledge, and share the knowledge with forum mates, through your answers to questions asked on forums.

    Study how top pros drive links through these forums. The best marketers have a skill for being positive, compassionate and helpful, answering questions in calm, confident, knowing, detached fashion.

    This is why top pros garner backlinks through forums.

    Nowadays, Forums are a great way for making backlinks but you must have to reply to any thread within an effective way. You must have to reply on those threads where you think that you can rely on that thread. You can help the thread poster in an effective way using 1 backlink which is relevant to the thread in a great answering way. But creating a backlink on every thread is also not good and it would be considered as spamming. So, be attention before doing such stuff on every forum posting. Read and obey their Rules and regulations before posting a reply on any thread. Unless your account would be suspended for a lifetime.

        how about just being natural without trying to look natural.

    Forum backlinks are known as Low quality Backlink. It's really don't help with SEO. But, if the forum members get to know and trust you, you can get traffic from forums by helping others solve their problems etc.

    A good signature from a trusted, known and liked member of a forum get some nice traffic.

    You will notice the members that join forums just to try to get SEO benefit from links get banned pretty fast.

    Sometimes I really wonder, the newbies who come here to start a thread, why dont come back to reply, after so many people are giving them the answers about their question. Maybe I am the only one who is thinking about it, I guess.

    Well to answer your query, most of the people have given appropriate and some are confusing answers, in short, if you have anything which has quality and readable for the audience, then obvious you will have some good weight over your links.

    As mentioned, give valuable information to fellow members and put your website link in your signature in order to get that back link. If your site is new ,a link from this forum is a good start. I would also suggest that you use ezine articles and write a few 450 word articles in your niche. More backlinks.

    Do the same with youtube, and other social media sites. Heck create a link wheel.

    Once you have done all of that, then go to sites that are .org or .gov and get back links from them. and do the same with other sites in your niche. Create a backlink journal and don't be afraid to email or ask webmaster for a backlink.

    Depends. I put two forums into two categories.

    1. Backlink Building

    These are dofollow forums that allow you to put your link in your signature. Replying on some posts here can be a quick way to start building inbound links to your blog.

    2. Traffic

    These are blogs in your niche or generous forums such as Quora or Reddit. These are incredibly good for gaining traffic, and with these you put informative replies that have a signature to your website, or link back to your article. These can help you to get initial and growing traffic. More so, most of these forums are indexed quickly, which means they can become search engine results, and get you results through that.

    Forums are much helpful for getting back link for your website because it can give you back links in each and every post of yours by placing your signature link just with your posts. Forums can be also good source of traffic but you should use these forum sites as they must be relevant of your niche.
    Post highly relevant and precised answers and comments in relevant threads and questions.

    Forums are a great source to create backlinks for your website.

    When you are looking for off-page SEO techniques in 2018, you do not want to miss forum submission.

    Forums help you to get a do-follow link to your website, so make sure you participate in discussions and answer questions.

    Look for a related forum for your niche and answer people's questions.

    You can provide your website link when people ask you to share it with them.

    This helps you create effective backlinks to your website.

    You need to put some good valuable info for others in your niche and not using forums for making backlinks or so simply. Please take that in account. Some time in your answers you really could put link or two, that's for sure, but not more than that and you will be good

    Forum posting is one of the good link building tactics to the website for keyword ranking improvement. Most of the forums are high valuable and authority and there is no space for spammers. So we can get quality backlinks to our website by adding our keyword in hyperlink format as signature link. But we need to participate in forums regularly to gain more backlinks.

    Hi there,

    If you are in the business industry then you should know how to build links. You should find some niche related forums and then start looking to post Via Forums Posting Service . When you post in your niche forums then you will get benefits from this. You can find the benefits below:

    -Free knowledge: Through forums you can get completely free knowledge without spending money on them. This way you can get knowledge and also share your knowledge to others. This way you can get help from others as well when you are in problem.

    -Save money: When you want to get some kind of information while building a website or promoting it then you get it for free. Do you know if you take help from experts then they will try to get some money out of your pocket? But if you try to contact the others posters in the forums then you might get the same help in free. You might now know what the posting can do for you but when you will help others with dedication and commitment then you will know the real power of forums.

    -Mentorship: Many forums provide you to have mentorship being a newbie. Thus after a certain time period you will get a healthy business relationship with other gurus in your field.

    -Opportunity for your to get appreciation: In most of the forums in which you will take interest in posting then you will find that many of the posters will make you guru as you are helping them with your heart. You will get appreciation from them and thus many of them will go ahead and follow you.

    -Advertise your business: Many forums allow you to advertise your business for free. This will save your money directly as you do not need to contact other webmasters to place your advertisements.

    -Early guidance: When I firstly visited warrior forums then I found out that there are many of them who are discussing about one or the other products. I was looking for some money making product but was quite confused as whether to join it or not. I posted about the product and got to know that it was reallu useless and it is completely fake. Thus today most of the person on this earth whether or not they are joined with the internet industry but still they research for many things over the internet.

    -Get motivation: You might feel this thing as strange. But when you will join forums and know that the other posters can encourage you then this will be great. They will help you to get motivated for the work you are doing and if you will notice the posters daily post then you will find that there are many who are posting on daily basis.

    - Follow guidelines: Try to follow give and take rule. As much you can help others help them. One day when you will start a thread they will take much interest to help you. In case you cannot help someone then do some research over internet and then reply them. You can also give them particular link where they can see the information.

    I've gotten backlinks from forum posts... but not in the typical way

    Usually, people get links from forums by posting links

    Unless you're posting your link as a NATURAL PART of the content you posted, you're just spamming.

    That's the bottom line

    I get backlinks when people like my posts and they click on my profile for more information

    They then VOLUNTARILY link to me

    It takes a while to get links this way but it is worth it
